Having this with anime, as it’s not movie time yet. It smells sweet, and nicely floral. There is a floral (perhaps orchid) flavours, with some vegetal/ herbal notes.

Thanks for the sample.

My samples arrived pretty quickly. At about the same time as my DVD from Texas, actually. The leaves have that pretty gold hue. There is lovely yam scent, with a bit of sweetness. It has a mostly sweet potato flavour, with hints of honey. I need to try more later to see how well it goes with historical Chinese movies. Because science?

Thanks to 3 Leaf for this sample. :)

Flavors: Honey, Sweet Potatoes, Yams

Have you tried anything else from their loose leaf selection? I’m intrigued.

I love the yam/sweet potato notes in black teas. I think it was the Bilbo Brew I first had it…so lovely.

Why do the Star Trek writers call the 19th century ancient? Anyway, having coffee for a week only made me want more tea. The dry leaves have a scent of cocoa and sweet potatoes, but I get some smoke in the brew. There is a bit of a raisin and caramel flavour, with grain and nut notes. Overall, it tastes like I kinda want pie.

Flavors: Cocoa, Grain, Nuts, Sweet Potatoes

Tea! Earl Grey! Hot! (I would have tea with Picard, if he asked. Or Patrick Stewart.)

There is a nice creamy, bergamot scent. The flavour is vanilla/ citrus. Not too strong, and a little the sweet side. Goes well with brownies and Star Trek episodes.

This was a sample, so I’ll have to get more.

Flavors: Bergamot, Cream, Vanilla

Tea, the final frontier! These are the voyages of the Starship Teakettle.

So, I am back home now. After a week of drinking coffee, it’s nice to have tea again. This smells like malt and cocoa. There is a nice malty flavour as well. Watching the very first Star Trek- TNG episode. Q is pretty amusing.

Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa, Malt

Having this in attempt to sip down my Butiki teas. (Even though I have about five ounces opened.) This still has that kinda honey and yam scent. The flavour is sweet potato, with a bit of malt. Good post- breakfast tea.

Will probably have a cup in the evening when I go look for meteors.

Flavors: Honey, Malt, Yams

No meteors last night, it rained.

Decided to have this tea iced. There is a nice scent of nutmeg and cream. The flavour (with a little added brown sugar) is almost like pumpkin pie. It’s creamy with spices, and I even get some of the pumpkin. Autumn is next month, so it’s almost the right season.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Creamy, Nutmeg, Pumpkin, Spices

I’ve been hoarding this almost since I move here. It smells mostly like chocolate, and some fruit. Decided to make it iced. There is a pasty flavour, with raspberries and cocoa. Not sure if I really get waffle, it’s more like a croissant. Might have sweetened it a little much, but it tastes like a nice dessert. Brewing it hot, I get more raspberry.

Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa, Fruity, Pastries, Raspberry

I like breakfast teas, so I got this. Originally, it was purchased in winter. The brew has a nice dark red/ amber colour. There is a lightly malty scent. That comes out in the flavour, along with slight sweetness. And it also nicely smooth.

Flavors: Malt, Sweet

Well, this does smell floral. There is a citrus scent as well. The flavour has more chocolate notes this time, with hints of rose and orange zest. Still really good.
