373 Tasting Notes
My Teavivre sampler came in the post today, so I had to try this first.
It smells fantastic… like sweet potatoes and honey wheat bread. The flavour is smooth and a bit malty. I do get some yam as well.
Thanks to Angel for picking this one for me to try.
Flavors: Honey, Malt, Sweet Potatoes
Since I had more coffee than tea today, so I had this.
It’s called extra green… and it really is. The colour is green, the scent is green, it even tastes green. There is an interesting green flavour. I like both sencha and matcha, but I’m not sure how well it goes together.
Last of my samples from Teavivre. So I saved this one. Had a cup with lunch and an episode of Ounce Upon a Time. (Which doesn’t have enough genies.)
Anyway… this has a great scent. I so enjoy the smell of roses. There is a really good floral black tea flavour as well. Would be a good tea for a tea event.
This came in the post today, which was totally when I was excepting it. Yay! It smells like many an orange spice tea I’ve had before. There is a nice scent of orange (made stronger ’cause I just had an orange), cinnamon, and a little cloves. Mmm… spice. The flavour is a bit like an orange chai. I like this one a lot. Thanks Just Organic Teas.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Cloves, Orange Zest
This has a nice, dark brew colour. (It’s like the Petite Sirah of tea.) The scent is kinda of malty caramel. There is more of a molasses flavour. I only get a hint of the grapes. Not a type of tea I’ve had before, but this is really good. Went well with my French toast.
Flavors: Caramel, Malt, Molasses
I really need to have more oolong, it’s becoming one of my faves. This one is from the Steepster Select box. It has a sweet, floral scent I can’t quite place. The flavour is honey, mildly fruity, and some orchid. I rather like it.
I’ll have to try it again when I’m not having oatmeal.
Flavors: Honey, Orchids
