550 Tasting Notes

91

Tasting note number 550. I went to an art event this morning without having any tea. So I had this as my first cup. Which also happens to be the first note. There is a scent of honey and fruit. The fruity sweetness comes out in the flavour as well.

Flavors: Honey, Red Fruits

I’ve been hoarding this for a while, so it was time to have a cuppa. There is a somewhat pine scent, and a little bit malty. The flavour is mostly honey and baked bread. It has pine notes as well. Having another cup in my pinon pine forest.

When life gives you lemons, make lemon bars. But make sure to use the right sized baking pan. Decided to have this tea with mine. It smells like caramel and baked bread. The flavour is a bit more chocolatey. The bread taste goes well with my dessert.

Flavors: Baked Bread, Caramel, Chocolate

I’ve been hoarding this tea for a while, and today I decided it was time to make another cuppa. It smells so nice. A scent of cocoa and vanilla. There is nice vanilla/ chocolate flavour as well. Mainly, it reminds me of creamy milk chocolate truffles.

Glad I found this sample today.

Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa, Creamy, Vanilla

I think that I like this one over North Winds…just a little sweeter to me.

By Yavanna, this smells good. There is a malty chocolate scent at first, then I get more yams. The flavour is pastry flavour, along with more sweet cocoa notes. Goes great with my fantasy novels, and my Japanese historical fiction.

Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa, Pastries, Yams

Picked out as a sample for me. This smells mostly vegetal. The flavour is a bit sweet, and a little medicinal. Probably not the best to have with my eggs.

Not really my cuppa, but glad I got to try it anyway.

Flavors: Medicinal, Vegetal

Since I don’t have a gaiwan (yet), I’m having this in yellow flower much. Smells nicely like rose. Like I put some flowers in my kitchen. The flavour is mildly floral and a little sweet. Don’t really get much of the base tea, but I like the rose.

Flavors: Floral, Flowers, Rose

One of my tea samples. I like Assam a lot, so I wanted to try this one.

It has that malty scent. Which was present more in the dry leaves. The flavour is on the mild side. There is a bit fruity sweetness as well.

Flavors: Fruity, Malt

Another one of my samples. I like to try breakfast blends, so I was interested in the Chinese one. It smells mostly malt, and a bit earthy. There is a malty earth flavour as well. The tea is on the bold side, and has a bit of sweetness.

Thanks for the sample, Tao Tea Leaf.

Flavors: Earth, Malt

This tea comes in a pretty red package. There is a scent of nuts and seaweed in the dry leaf. When brewed, I get more orchids. The flavour is a bit floral, with some sweet, nutty notes. Overall, I get mostly flowers. Thanks to Teavivre for the sample.

Flavors: Nutty, Orchids, Seaweed
