552 Tasting Notes
Another one of my samples. I like to try breakfast blends, so I was interested in the Chinese one. It smells mostly malt, and a bit earthy. There is a malty earth flavour as well. The tea is on the bold side, and has a bit of sweetness.
Thanks for the sample, Tao Tea Leaf.
Flavors: Earth, Malt
Phoenix, rise again in my tea mug. It has a baked bread, and raspberry scent. Got a little wood in the dry leaf. The flavour is kinda toasty, with hints of raisins. Mild raisin toast, perhaps. There is a nice, mild sweetness. (Goes well with anime and farming games.)
Thanks for the sample, Teavivre.
Flavors: Baked Bread, Grain, Grapes, Raisins, Raspberry, Wood
Another of my samples. When I first opened the package, I got a fruity scent. Perhaps dark cherries or plum. And a little pine. There is a more bread-like scent in the brew. The flavour is mostly fruit, with some baked bread notes, and very mild smokiness.
Flavors: Baked Bread, Cherry, Fruity
Having tea in the Grand Canyon with dragons is fun. The leaves smell so nicely like strawberry. There is more of a floral scent in the brew. I get a light, sweet berry flavour, with floral notes and a mild hint of cream. Better than I remember. Still tastes like Spring.
Thanks to Teavivre for the sample.
Flavors: Creamy, Floral, Strawberry
My sample was in the box went I went on my walk this afternoon. Oh my, this smells so good. A rose garden with hints of cocoa. There is a sweet floral flavour, and chocolate notes. I get a slight yam taste as well. Overall, fantastic.
Thanks Teavivre. :)
Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa, Floral, Rose, Yams
My samples arrived pretty quickly. At about the same time as my DVD from Texas, actually. The leaves have that pretty gold hue. There is lovely yam scent, with a bit of sweetness. It has a mostly sweet potato flavour, with hints of honey. I need to try more later to see how well it goes with historical Chinese movies. Because science?
Thanks to 3 Leaf for this sample. :)
Flavors: Honey, Sweet Potatoes, Yams
Why do the Star Trek writers call the 19th century ancient? Anyway, having coffee for a week only made me want more tea. The dry leaves have a scent of cocoa and sweet potatoes, but I get some smoke in the brew. There is a bit of a raisin and caramel flavour, with grain and nut notes. Overall, it tastes like I kinda want pie.
Flavors: Cocoa, Grain, Nuts, Sweet Potatoes
