407 Tasting Notes

I might have brewed this too long, as it was stronger than I would have liked. The flavour is kinda creamy chocolate. It really does taste a bit like malted milk balls. (Wonder how it is with the chocolate strawberry).

I really like yams. Really, really a lot. This smells nicely like yams, but tastes more like spices and marshmallows. Decent, but not what I was hoping for.

Saturday sipdown (cold- brew). This is so good cold. The pumpkin flavour is a little stronger, as are the spices. Added a little sugar and soy milk, and it’s like having a pumpkin ice cream beverage.

Got this one in the post yesterday. I have had the black version, but I like this one better. Smells awesome, I almost want to put some in a little cloth bag to carry with me (like those lavender satchels). The flavour is nicely minty, with hints of chocolate.

I still need to a comparison sipdown with my other chocolate/ mint blends.

I like black based chocolate mint blends better than rooibos based. :)

Cold- brew sipdown. I’ve thought this would be good cold since I got it, and I finally got to try. It still smells really good.

I taste the green tea more now. The juice flavour is still there, and a bit stronger. In summer, I’d prefer a pitcher of this to lemonade.

Pears were my favourite fruit for a long time, so I had to try this. It smells great. Like getting fresh pears at the market. Brewed- oh, sparkles. Has a nice, crisp fruit flavour. (Need to try this with the apple pie tea.)

This is another one of those teas that smells like Autumn. I do so like the apples and cinnamon. The flavour is a nice blend of apples and spices. Another good dessert tea.

The scent is pretty nice, both chocolate and cherry. And the flavour is pretty much like those cordial cherries. It’s good, but would be better with a little vanilla. (Now I need to find another chocolate tea to try it with.)

This smells nice and fruity, mostly like mangoes. The flavour reminds me a juice blend. Good hot, but it might be better iced.

Update- it’s actually pretty awesome iced.

I just tried this as a cold brew. Still smells amazing. The creamy pineapple flavoured works really well iced.
