I don’t seem to have enough plain (unflavoured?) black teas, so I got this on a recent road trip. I originally like the scent, but it turned out to be a tea I wanted to try anyway. It has a mild citrus flavour. Good for a morning cup with almond milk. (Have it warm though.)

Oh, maple, how nice you smell! I can’t have anything maple without thinking of waffles/ pancakes. I do have another maple tea, but it’s black. This has a great flavour as well. Nice creamy, and sweet. Reminds me of these candies I like, or maybe fudge. (Now I must have it with waffles.)

This was a sample I got from Teascent (meant to review sooner, but I have been having trouble with my computer).

I don’t usually drink oolong (and it’s mostly flavoured). This has a floral/ grassy scent. It had a light floral taste as well. Not really something I’d pick out, but glad I got to try it.

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.
