468 Tasting Notes
Finally got around to trying this again. Might have accidentally brewed in a basket that formerly had strong black tea. This one does smell nicely like orange and chocolate at first. The flavour reminds me of citrus dark chocolates. Good tea, but for some reason the first brew turned out better. Thanks to Cheri for this sample.
Flavors: Dark Chocolate, Orange
Exciting, I get to be the first review. Came back from my holiday to find my samples from Cheri had reached my post box. Didn’t really drink much tea on holiday, as it was mostly bagged, and heating water on the stove took a while.
Since it’s raining today, I decided to try this one. It smells mildly malty. The flavour is a bit of malt and fruit. Good for rainy days.
Flavors: Dried Fruit, Malt
Ah, snow… it makes me want to stay in to drink tea and read Dickens novels. This one smells nice, with a mild malty scent. The flavour is a bit of dried apricot, with some notes of sweet potato bread. I also really the colour of the leaves and brew.
Very good tea for my new winter weather.
Tasting note number 450! Huzzah! Had this tea while waiting for my soup to be done. It smells nicely like muscat grapes. The scent made me miss the Japanese grocery in San Jose. There is a sweet, grape flavour as well. My little bit of Summer now that it gets colder.
Flavors: Grapes, Muscatel, Sweet
So, I went by the Teavana again. Mainly because I had time before the bus again. I was curious, and they had this sample. Don’t really like the way they do their teas in store sometimes. It smelled vaguely like cocoa. Though the flavour came across as a bit bitter, and it was not really the right temperature for me. At least I got to try it free.
Flavors: Bitter, Cocoa
