454 Tasting Notes

This was one of my free samples recently. I like their strawberry, not so much the chocolate. It smelled more like chocolate, and tastes more like strawberries. Not sure what I was expecting, but hopefully it’ll be good cold.

Alright, so this one smells nice. It’s mint. The peppercorns add an interesting flavour. I didn’t really taste the white chocolate though.

On the plus side… there was no liquorice.

I wanted to like this, I really did. It smells like it’s trying to be Nutella. The flavour is little hazelnut, but mostly liquorice. Don’t even know why that was added, since it gives the tea a medicinal taste.
And I can’t really taste the oolong or the chocolate.

Thats a bummer. Licorice is a no go for me, I’d be so mad if I got it by accident.

Watching Doctor Who always seems to make me want tea. This still smells awesome. I love the creamy lime flavour. It goes really well with the Witch’s Cauldron as well. In the words of Nine… that’s fantastic!

I had this last night. We seem to be on the same tea wavelength recently.

It’s a cold rainy, day here. So I needed some tea to warm up. I do like the smell of mint brewing in the afternoon. There is such a nice mint flavour too, it even goes well with my peppermint bark chocolates.

And I can now acknowledge… Winter is coming.

After reading this, all I could think about was the smell of mint brewing – I had to make a cup to enjoy

This is actually my first tea this weekend. I’ve been drinking hot apple cider and apple juice a lot. It kinda tastes like a more mild breakfast tea. Though that could just be a sign I need to try more pu erh.
Anyway, it’s good to have on a windy Autumn day.

It’s post-Halloween. I got this today instead of yesterday. I like the little ghost sprinkles. Smells fantastic, I do so enjoy the scent of chocolate blueberries. And the flavour is like that of the chocolate fruits I had at a costume pot-luck last night. Like having something for warmer months and a holiday treat all at once.

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.
