613 Tasting Notes


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

Happy Sunday! For Mother’s Day breakfast, we had cinnamon rolls and pecan rolls. (Got them for my mom from a local bakery.) So I picked this tea.

It has a light malty scent with some spices. The baked bread/ spice flavour went good with the rolls. Now I’m having another mug with my video game.


Mmm cinnamon rolls

The sample I received since I’d asked for black tea. I really like the colour of the leaves. There is a nice, light floral scent. It has a bit of a floral flavour as well, with some fruit.

Since today was my day off, I decided to have some loose leaf tea again. That is kinda hard to do at my work, especially since there is no tea kettle (yet). So I am glad to try this sample. This is also my 500th tasting note. Whooo!

My latest sample. Decided to have this while watching anime, and playing Harvest Moon. The tea smells like seaweed, and a little spinach. There is a very seaweed- like flavour as well. It reminds me a little of wakame soup. (Will try again with sushi.)

Thanks for the sample, Yunomius.

Flavors: Green, Seaweed, Spinach

One of my press samples, since I wanted to try an oolong. There is a nice, kinda earthy scent. The flavour is a bit nutty, which comes out more in the second mug. I got a little bit of molasses in the first cup. It has a slight smokiness, which works for the tea.

Glad to try a roasted oolong again. Thanks to Yunimous for this sample.

Flavors: Molasses, Nutty, Roasted

So, today I went to Venice. I had this tea with my breakfast. It has that nice, light malty scent I really like. The flavoured is bit stronger, with hints of dried fruit and cocoa. There is some yam and honey/ caramel flavour on the second mug.
Overall, good, and I wish I had more.

Flavors: Cocoa, Dried Fruit, Honey, Malt, Yams

My tea with Harvest Moon today. This smells nicely like baked bread, and a little malt. The flavour is sweet, and makes me think of a light cocoa. There is a hint of fruit as well. Good to have will virtual farming.

Happy Spring! Yesterday, I went to a gem show and read in a garden. Some of the trees stared to blossom, and there were some lovely Spring flowers.

This smells really nice, like nuts and honey. Maybe a bit of pistachio nougat as well. There is a nice, sweet flavour. The nut taste comes out nicely. Now I wish I tried the original.

Flavors: Honey, Nuts

Happy St Paddy’s Day. Since I really like Irish Breakfast, I picked this up at the store a few months ago. There is sweet scent, and a bit darker than I’m used to. The flavour is bold and smooth, with just a hint of sweet malt. Went well with my Irish cream bread pudding.
