408 Tasting Notes

This was the tea that wanted to be chocolate covered cherries.

The scent is mildly cherry and chocolate. And the flavour is pretty much sweet with a little chocolate cherry. So much sweet.

I was curious, and had to try this. It’s aromatherapy. Mmm… lavender. The flavour of the coconut gets kinda when it’s brewed.

Still, it’s nice and very relaxing.

I mean, the coconut flavour gets lost. And it tastes of lavender.

This is my attempt at chocolate pumpkin pie. So I guess it’s inspired.

Smells nice, like spiced chocolate. The flavour is sweet and a little spicy. Not really much chocolate (there, but subtle), but I do taste the pumpkin. It’s like having creamy pumpkin pie with a sprinkling of chocolate chips.

This smells really good. Like almond extract, and cookie batter.

The flavour is sweet orange almond. It does sorta have the winter feel I was going for too. (So of course I must try in Summer.)

This is my version of the blueberry creme. Or muffins. Maybe both.

The scent is so nice. (I really like their blueberry tea.) It has a nice creamy blueberry flavour that goes well with the rooibos vanilla. Maybe not really muffin, but still a good brunch tea.

My blend… because I like their almond teas.

The flavour is nutty, creamy marzipan. There maybe needs to be a little more of the cream tea. Otherwise, it makes a fine brunch blend.

This smells nicely floral. The flavour is more sweet and fruity. It’s not overwhelming like similar teas I’ve had either.

I like yams (sweet potatoes), I can’t remember what the proper name is anymore. Anyway, I like the pie which results.

This was my attempt to give the pie a little more flavour. The added cinnamon is really nice. And now it’s more liking having pie with cream and almond.

Sadly, I am without coconut cream pie. So I decided to make a tea instead.

Perhaps I added too much vanilla. Reminds me a bit of those coconut ices I get at the Ren Faire. The coconut is nice without being too strong. So, I tried to make pie tea but ended up with ice cream tea.

This is my blend. I made because I like chocolate, and blueberries.

Smells really nice. The flavour leans mostly towards the blueberry, with a more mild flavour of creamy chocolate.
