509 Tasting Notes
This is the most interesting sounding tisane I’ve ever has. It certainly smells like dates, except slightly more baked (date bread maybe). I ate a couple. This is fruit, right? Pretty good too, tasted a little more like berries (of the goji variety).
Brewed- it does smell more like bread now. There is a sweet, fruity flavour.
I have a feeling this would be good iced… or as a snack.
Flavors: Berries, Dates
I’m the first person to try this tea… hurray! My package says honey orchid.
It smells so good, sweet and floral. Honey does come out in the flavour, and a little clover (perhaps the orchid too.) Will have to try it again later.
Flavors: Honey, Orchids
Why are the only people who’ve had this tea ones who don’t like rooibos?
I picked this for one of my samples because I like orange flavour in teas, especially in the red bush blends. It has prominent citrus scent (which is really pretty nice). The flavour is a nice blend of orange and vanilla, but more on the orange side. Having this with some orange cranberry bread was really good.
Since it’s nearly summer, I will have to try a cup iced.
Flavors: Orange Zest, Vanilla
My very first roasted oolong. I brewed this in what I call the "western electric kettle, single mug method’. It smells earthy, and a little smoky. The dry leaves have a more earthy scent. Iget a little chocolate in the flavour, but that’s more like dark chocolate or roast cacao beans. There is some of the roasty oolong flavour, but it’s more subtle.
Thanks to Chinese Tea Shop for letting me try this.
My Teavivre sampler came in the post today, so I had to try this first.
It smells fantastic… like sweet potatoes and honey wheat bread. The flavour is smooth and a bit malty. I do get some yam as well.
Thanks to Angel for picking this one for me to try.
Flavors: Honey, Malt, Sweet Potatoes
Since I had more coffee than tea today, so I had this.
It’s called extra green… and it really is. The colour is green, the scent is green, it even tastes green. There is an interesting green flavour. I like both sencha and matcha, but I’m not sure how well it goes together.
