468 Tasting Notes
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
It feels a little wrong to brew this with an electric kettle, but I don’t have a gaiwan (yet).
I’m really liked the scent of these Teavivre greens. This one smells mildly of jasmine, and slightly sweet. There a little bit of peach in the flavour, it’s mostly jasmine. For some reason jasmine makes me crave steamed rice dishes.
Thanks to Teavivre for sending me this sample. :)
