621 Tasting Notes
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
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
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
