621 Tasting Notes


One of my press samples. I got an origami crane too (which is sitting on my dresser.) The scent was mostly vegetal. There is a kinda malty flavour, but I get more mild fruit.
I could see having this with meals.

Flavors: Citrus Fruits, Vegetal

I got this tea as a sample on one of my trips to the store. (Because I yay for local tea shops!) Anyway, when it is first brewed, there a slight smoky scent. Not enough to bother me though. Then the flavour is cocoa and some dried fruit. It has a nice taste as it cools too.

Flavors: Cocoa, Dried Fruit, Plums, Smoke

One of the teas I got to celebrate Spring. It smells so nice, like orange zest and roses. When brewed, the Laoshan base comes out. The flavour is a sorta light bergamot with some floral and chocolate notes. If you have a tea holiday, this would go well with scones.

Flavors: Bergamot, Chocolate, Floral, Orange, Rose

Selected by the chat folks. This tea smells fabulous. It’s cocoa and nutty, and also has a scent of chocolate pasty . There is a nice nutty roasted flavour, also with some chocolate. In some sips I get chocolate, in some I get toasted rice. Having it as a black tea works really well. Overall, very good. (Goes well with anime.)

Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa, Nutty, Pastries, Roasted, Toasted Rice

Today we had rain and hail after a mostly sunny afternoon. So it was a good tea day. There is a nice orange aroma, both in the dry tea and brew. The flavour is mostly orange as well. Not really any chocolate, but still good. Having my second cup while watching Tangled.

Flavors: Orange

This morning, I tried this with 52 Teas’ Raspberry Birthday Cake. The flavours go so well together. It’s like having a fruity raspberry cake, with dark chocolate frosting. Nice to have while gaming, but makes me want a cupcake.

Decided to get this during the sale. The dry leaves smell very nice, like raspberry sherbert or sorbet. When brewed, more of a cake scent is present. There is more of a fruit flavour than a cake-like one. Though I get more cake as it cools. Will try it later with some chocolate teas.

Flavors: Cake, Raspberry

I like to have green tea while watching anime, it just seems to fit. So I made this before a few episodes of the The Slayers. It has a nice, creamy custard scent. There is also some roast nuts. The flavour doesn’t seem as strong now, but I really like the mild caramel.

Flavors: Caramel, Nuts

Finally got around to trying this one. It smells like spices, and a bit of cocoa. The is more like the pumpkin spices, but not much chocolate. Good, but not what I was expecting.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Natural Pumpkin Spice Flavor, Spices

It was a dark and stormy afternoon… (seriously, it hailed on an event I attended.) Having already had hot chocolate at the Festival, I decided to go with this when I got home. It smells nicely like dark chocolate, roast nuts, and a bit like coffee. There is a dark chocolate flavour as well, with some coffee notes. Not very sweet, and strong, it is good for this weather. (Maybe this would go well with biscotti.)

Flavors: Coffee, Dark Chocolate, Roast nuts
