255 Tasting Notes
Merry Samhain! This is really part of the Harvest Collection, but I saved until Halloween. It’s pumpkin, so it counts.
I so love the smell of pumpkin spice in the morning. Tastes like a sweeter version of the chocolate pumpkin pie. Might have been a little better as just caramel and the pumpkin bits.
Still, it fits the mood for today and my cravings for fall flavours.
Did I forget to review this? Pretty sure I’ve had it before.
Anyway, it smells nice. Like cinnamon and apples. The yogurt comes out more in the flavour. Not bad, but might be better sans yogurt.
So it’s almost Halloween, and I’m watching ‘Witches of East End’. This smells nicely like vanilla. The added sprinkles are cute, though I was hoping for a little more. Still, I like the flavour. Very creamy.
Today I went to the farmers market. I tried so much fruit. When I got home, I just wanted some straight tea. This one smells really nice. Tastes refreshingly green too. (Just what I wanted at the moment.)
I like jasmine, but I’ve really only had it as green. This has a nice, floral scent. (And still makes me want steamed rice.) The jasmine flavour comes out a little stronger than I’m used to, but it’s alright.
Though I prefer a jasmine green tea/ rooibos blend (as a cold-brew).
The leaves have a nice vanilla scent. Tastes more like vanilla flavouring than actual oolong. Might have liked it more if I hadn’t tried other oolongs recently.
I got this in the post a few days. Since I had gotten into green teas again. My kitchen smells like chocolate cake, except the tea mug which smells like rice cakes. Which is a pleasant scent.
This is only my second time having genmaicha. I like the toasted rice flavour. And I’ve always enjoyed matcha. I still feel like I should be having this in a tea house with onigiri. Thanks to Yunomi for letting me try this.
I think I’ll always enjoy the smell of chocolate/ mint. However, the chocolate flavour doesn’t really go with the green base. The mint is good though.
This smells like nori for some reason. The flavour is certainly roasted, and kinda nutty. Glad I finally got to try this type.And I learned that it doesn’t really go with tomato soup.
This smells similar to all their almond teas, which is marzipan. Alternately, sweet and nutty. The flavour is light, and nutty. Different than the other oolongs I’ve had today. Like this ’cause I like almonds.
