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.

My version of the gingerbread tea.

Smells nice, the added cinnamon is certainly an improvement. The chocolate chip and caramel makes a nice flavour with the spices.

Er, the chocolate and caramel complement the spices for a nice flavour. I shouldn’t write things I’m tired.

Well, it’s definitely got an autumn scent. The flavour is leans towards the pumpkin. And the spice blend is good, along with almond notes.

Maybe needs a little vanilla and milk. Now I want pie.

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.)
