One of the reasons I like Irish Breakfast is because it has Assam. Then, of course, I like Assam because of the malty scent/ flavour. So I was pleased to try this. Thanks to cookies for the sample. It certainly smells nicely malty, and slightly sweet. The flavour is a little stronger than I was expecting, but tastes like the tea title. Having a second cup while watching Star Trek again (because Spock type reasons.)
One of my press samples. Decided to try this because I’ve been mostly drinking black teas lately. Since it’s Sunday, I’m also having my own Masterpiece Theater with the adaptation of my favourite Dickens novel (starting a young Harry Potter.) This tea smells so nice, it has that good toasty scent, along with some hints of grain and roast nuts. The roasted, nutty flavour is nice as well. Just what I needed for the cold, windy day.
Flavors: Grain, Roast nuts
We found this tea at a local international market. It smelled so good. Even better brewed, I get a nice floral scent, with some nice notes of sweet vanilla. Having my third cup while watching Star Trek. The base tea is nice, and pairs well with the floral/ vanilla flavour.
Flavors: Rose, Vanilla
Had this at the store when I was doing errands last week, as there is one in a part of ABQ I like to visit often. It smelled mostly like citrus, didn’t really get any berry. The flavour was much more grapefruit as well. Like a sweet, citrus punch of some kind. And no berry.
Flavors: Citrus, Grapefruit
Since I needed to get up early for an outing, I decided to have this tea to start the day. It has a nice scent, sweet potatoes and molasses. The flavour is mildly sweet, and reminds me of dried fruit. Now I’m having my fourth cup while watching Star Trek.
Flavors: Dried Fruit, Molasses, Sweet, Yams
Had it this morning with my attempt at French toast, sans milk.
This smells go good. Mostly like yams, and some cocoa. There is a nice malty chocolate flavour with hints of dried fruit (apricot perhaps). Still one of my fave morning teas.
Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa, Malt, Sweet Potatoes, Yams
