Merlin sipdown. I recently discovered that I really like assam. This is nice, with mild vanilla flavor. It needs to be sampled with the rock sugar.

This smells like sweet tarts for some reason. Well, candy and fruit anyway. The flavor kinda reminds me of these mango flavoured candies I used to like. Not sure but I was expecting, but it’s certainly different.

This is pretty much the sugar plum, but only more fruity. It has a nice fruit/ cinnamon scent. The flavour is nice too, since I do like plums. Perhaps I was supposed to have this iced.

I’ve not had any monkey bread, so I don’t know what it’s like. So this tea makes me think of cinnamon rolls. The flavour is sweet, creamy, and spicy. And also like having the pineapple cake tea (sans pineapple.)
It certainly smells really good.

Mmm… smells like berry truffles. The flavour is sweet berry and white chocolate. It works well. And the taste of the hibiscus is mild.

It mostly like pudding, or maybe a cream pie. The flavour is like somebody put a banana in spiced hot chocolate. Though a bit mild, it’s still a good blend. Maybe needs cinnamon though.

Mmm… orange and spices. That is both the scent and flavour. It’s like having a hot orange cider, except is summer.

Lemongrass! Why is there so much lemongrass? It does have nice scent brewed though. Not really the flavor I was expecting. There is a definitely an herbal taste, but I don’t pick up much ginger.

This smells like fruit snacks. Those mixed berry ones. I was expecting a good fruity flavour, but it tastes more some sort of powdered drink. Can I have mixed berry fruit snack flavour tea instead, please?

This is my evening tea for Autumn, so I have to try in on a Summer afternoon.

It smells really nice. The predominate flavour/ scent would be the coconut. Otherwise, I kinda tastes like a coconut treat with a little caramel sauce and some almonds. And it is sweet. So, that worked well.
