347 tasting notes

My free sample from a Lupicia visit. It does smell somewhat like cherries, and another fruit I can’t really place. The flavour is bit oddly sweet. Could call it interesting, I guess, but I prefer rose petal black teas.

Flavors: Cherry, Fruity

The last of my samples, another Green Terrace chose for me. It smells nicely floral (maybe orchids). The flavour is light, buttery, and green. Teas like this are trying to make me prefer green oolongs (which I do like, but usually after lunch.)

Flavors: Butter, Green

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 30 sec

This smells nicely like cinnamon and blueberries. There is too much hibiscus flavour though. Might be better cold.

I’ve recently decided I needed to have more oolongs, so I had to try this one. It has a creamy and slightly floral scent. The milk (creaminess) comes out more in the flavour, along with floral/ vegetal notes. Having it a bit cold is nice too.

Flavors: Floral, Milk

Preparation

This was the green tea that Green Terrace Teas chose for me. It smells the jasmine teas should… light and floral. The jasmine flavour is very good. Reminds me why the jasmine greens got me into tea in the first place.

Flavors: Jasmine

As soon as I saw this on the site, I wanted to try it. The scent is a nice malty honey. (And the dry leaves reminded me a bit of Yunnan black). There is a sweet malty flavour. I do get some hints of peach. Overall, I glad I decided to get this one as a sample.

Flavors: Honey, Malt, Peach

This was part of my qiveaway sampler. It smells very vegetal. The flavour reminds me of vegetable broth. Might be good with soup.

Flavors: Vegetable Broth, Vegetal

Praise to the tea gods. (Teaities?) This smells pretty awesome. I get mostly honey, and a light scent of yams. The flavour is more malty cocoa and hints of molasses.

This is one of the extra samples in my review box. I so like how it smells, very natural. The flavour is nicely green and floral without being over powering.

This was part of my sampler prize. I don’t usually make white tea, and might have steeped this too warm. It smells nice though, a bit floral and sweet.

Not so sure of the flavour at the moment, but it does seem to go with my orange cake.
