I’ve either not had enough green teas lately, or too much oolong. Because this kinda smells like oolong. The flavour is light, and very vegetal. It makes me want wakame soup.

Flavors: Vegetal

Not sure who sent me this, I moved around some things in my stash. This smells really nice. Like mangoes and spices. Perhaps it is better to have this cold, but it does taste like a lassi. Certainly has a good mango flavour.

Flavors: Cardamon, Mango

Preparation
Boiling 5 min, 30 sec

Since it’s almost summer, seems like a good time for this tea. I added some of the Birthday Cake from David’s. It really works as a blend. Mmm… lemon lime cake.

Flavors: Cake, Lemon, Lime

I not sure what this mint is , but I shall assume this is peppermint. Smells really nice. The mint goes out well, there is more vanilla in the flavour. And somehow it makes me grave ice cream. (Mint chip with cream soda maybe.)

Flavors: Mint, Vanilla

Sipdown. I had some of this with the Sugar and Spice blend. Still not sure why pineapples are coffee cake, but it went well with the spices.

This does smell nicely like chocolate… something. It tastes, uh—- fruitastic. There are other fruit flavours in here. Very sweet too. (On the artificial side.)

One plus- no hibiscus. (Which I enjoy botanically.)

Flavors: Sweet

I wanted to try more green rooibos. This does smell like blueberries, other fruits, and hibiscus. Why has the hibiscus invaded my mug again? There is some blueberry flavour, but it’s pretty hidden. Perhaps I need to try this cold instead.

Flavors: Hibiscus

This is perhaps the best brunch tea I’ve had recently. Goes very well with French toast.

I how this tea actually smells like figs. The coconut is nice. There is more coconut in the flavour, but I don’t really even notice the fennel. Don’t think I brewed this hot enough, and I didn’t really taste the puer, but went well with breakfast.

Fig coconut puerh sounds good. Never thought to try it because I hate fennel.

Lariel of Lórien

The fennel didn’t really declare itself.
