523 Tasting Notes
Now catching up on the show Forever (kinda makes me think of Castle/ Sherlock Holmes/ Highlander. The male lead makes it even more watchable.) I wanted to try this because it reminds me so much of a blend at the ‘local’ shop. This smells like pumpkin and melons. While I’m used to the certain spice blend, this one tastes like a pumpkin shake. It’s nicely creamy. Overall, a good evening cup.
Flavors: Creamy, Pumpkin
So, I am a Tea Pirate, and I sail on the Jolly Teapot. Once again, I have a rum flavoured tea instead of my preferred beverage. This one is rather pleasant. It has a creamy, butterscotch type flavour, along with the rum. Not the coconut of my last rum tea. In fact, this kinda reminds me of the rum raisin ice cream, sans raisins. And warm. If that makes sense. Thanks to my boatswain for sending this for me to try.
Flavors: Butterscotch, Creamy, Rum
This is one of the teas my boatswain, Starfevre sent for me to try. I think teas with chocolate notes have spoiled me in regards to actually chocolate teas. The smells like a chocolate bar, but that doesn’t really come across in the flavour. It is sweet, but doesn’t really have the cocoa I was expecting.
Selected by the ladies of the Tea Chat Room. I made a bit of a storing fail, it got left on a grape scented candle by accident. So now it smells a bit like grapes. It also has a scent of plums and malty chocolate. The flavour is plum hot cocoa. Which is pretty good.
Make sure you don’t leave samples with your candles, kids. At least it was a complimentary fruit and not ocean breeze or something.
Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa, Malt, Plums
Don’t remember where I got this, but it was time to try it. This really does smell like cake. The flavour is more caramel, and maybe pecan. I know this is a cake tea, but it is really sweet. Overall, I’m glad I picked up the single serve bag, but don’t need a canister.
Flavors: Caramel, Hazelnut, Pecan, Vanilla
This is the other sample Stacy picked out. Dry, it smelled nicely like malty chocolate. Brewed, I get more of a baked bread scent. The flavour is lighter than expected, with some fruit and sweet potato notes. It does have some baked bread as well. Now it tastes a bit like raisin bread, which I really like. Praise Yavanna!
Flavors: Baked Bread, Chocolate, Malt, Sweet Potatoes
