420 Tasting Notes

I’ve been wanting to try this for a while. Since I happened to be driving right by a shop, I finally got some. It smells so nice, and relaxing. The lavender seems stronger as a scent. The flavour is more sweet, herbal coconut.
Now I feel like I should use it for cookies.

This smells like those starlight mints I really like. Making mint tea in my game made me want a cup. I haven’t had plain mint tea in a while.
This is sweet, and a bit refreshing.

This is actually better than the black tea. It smells fantastic. The flavor is still delicious, and it’s like having a lighter cake.

This smells really good, but then I like the mint. The flavour goes well with the berry, even though it’s a little hidden.

So far, I’ve only tried this hot. Seems it would be better cold.

This is the first I’ve tried this since Spring. I’ve also had a couple other maple teas. This does smell really good. It has a nice flavour too. I added a little vanilla. (Would be good with scones)

Stargate sample time. The cow sprinkles taste like mint. Smells really good too. The flavour is smooth chocolate mint. Not sure if I like it more than the other blends, as further tasting is needed.

I left this to steep while putting away dishes, and stopped to wonder who brought me a slice of carrot cake. It smells that good, even the cream cheese frosting is there. The spices and flavour are really good too.
Not as strong (maybe a longer steep next time), but that is a carrot cake in my tea mug, and it is fabulous.

It’s Autumn next week. Yay! So I decided to have more of this (it is part of the Harvest Collection).

I’m drinking this while watching an episode of Star Trek- The Next Generation. Somehow, I don’t taste much pumpkin anymore. It tastes like spiced chocolate pie with maybe a pumpkin cookie crust. So I need a Star Trek uniform and replicator rations for a pie.

Star Trek brunch. This tea smells really good. Mostly like spices, but some like vanilla. It makes for a creamy vanilla chai.
Don’t really taste any vanilla beans or cheesecake.

I was making brunch and Star Trek was on. Since it’s Picard, I should be drinking earl grey.

This smells very citrusy dry. Brewed- I smell mint. It tastes very herbal. The citrus is a little strong.

Would probably be better cold.
