461 Tasting Notes
My Teavivre sampler came in the post today, so I had to try this first.
It smells fantastic… like sweet potatoes and honey wheat bread. The flavour is smooth and a bit malty. I do get some yam as well.
Thanks to Angel for picking this one for me to try.
Flavors: Honey, Malt, Sweet Potatoes
Since I had more coffee than tea today, so I had this.
It’s called extra green… and it really is. The colour is green, the scent is green, it even tastes green. There is an interesting green flavour. I like both sencha and matcha, but I’m not sure how well it goes together.
Last of my samples from Teavivre. So I saved this one. Had a cup with lunch and an episode of Ounce Upon a Time. (Which doesn’t have enough genies.)
Anyway… this has a great scent. I so enjoy the smell of roses. There is a really good floral black tea flavour as well. Would be a good tea for a tea event.
This came in the post today, which was totally when I was excepting it. Yay! It smells like many an orange spice tea I’ve had before. There is a nice scent of orange (made stronger ’cause I just had an orange), cinnamon, and a little cloves. Mmm… spice. The flavour is a bit like an orange chai. I like this one a lot. Thanks Just Organic Teas.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Cloves, Orange Zest
This has a nice, dark brew colour. (It’s like the Petite Sirah of tea.) The scent is kinda of malty caramel. There is more of a molasses flavour. I only get a hint of the grapes. Not a type of tea I’ve had before, but this is really good. Went well with my French toast.
Flavors: Caramel, Malt, Molasses
I really need to have more oolong, it’s becoming one of my faves. This one is from the Steepster Select box. It has a sweet, floral scent I can’t quite place. The flavour is honey, mildly fruity, and some orchid. I rather like it.
I’ll have to try it again when I’m not having oatmeal.
Flavors: Honey, Orchids
Finally got around to trying this sample. And thanks to Tea Spot! :)
This blend smells really good, the chocolate scent is pretty strong. The flavour kinda reminds me of coffee. I can see why this would be a gateway tea for the coffee people. It’s probably too late in the day for this, and it’s most flavourful.
This was part of my Steepster Select box. It’s rainy here, so I needed some black tea. The scent reminds me of a breakfast tea blend, except a little sweeter. I enjoyed the malt, and honey flavours, but that is a little hidden under the black tea flavour.
I’d probably enjoy this on Winter mornings with oatmeal or something.
Flavors: Honey, Malt
