I like raspberries, but not so much raspberry flavoured things. Mainly because they’re blue for some reason. This tea is thankfully not blue, and even has the actual fruit. Huzzah! The tea itself smells and tastes like a raspberry sorbet. While I still lean towards this fruit paired with chocolate in tea (and in general), I like the creamy flavours.

Flavors: Berry, Cream, Raspberry

Now catching up on the show Forever (kinda makes me think of Castle/ Sherlock Holmes/ Highlander. The male lead makes it even more watchable.) I wanted to try this because it reminds me so much of a blend at the ‘local’ shop. This smells like pumpkin and melons. While I’m used to the certain spice blend, this one tastes like a pumpkin shake. It’s nicely creamy. Overall, a good evening cup.

Flavors: Creamy, Pumpkin

So, I am a Tea Pirate, and I sail on the Jolly Teapot. Once again, I have a rum flavoured tea instead of my preferred beverage. This one is rather pleasant. It has a creamy, butterscotch type flavour, along with the rum. Not the coconut of my last rum tea. In fact, this kinda reminds me of the rum raisin ice cream, sans raisins. And warm. If that makes sense. Thanks to my boatswain for sending this for me to try.

Flavors: Butterscotch, Creamy, Rum

This is one of the teas my boatswain, Starfevre sent for me to try. I think teas with chocolate notes have spoiled me in regards to actually chocolate teas. The smells like a chocolate bar, but that doesn’t really come across in the flavour. It is sweet, but doesn’t really have the cocoa I was expecting.

A suggestion for a tea to go with my dinner of popcorn shrimp. It worked. I liked the roasty/ nutty flavour. The scent was a bit on the nutty side too, and was a little stronger in the tea itself rather than just the leaves. Overall, I still very much like this variety.

I have this and haven’t yet tried it. I guess I should.

Selected by the ladies of the Tea Chat Room. I made a bit of a storing fail, it got left on a grape scented candle by accident. So now it smells a bit like grapes. It also has a scent of plums and malty chocolate. The flavour is plum hot cocoa. Which is pretty good.

Make sure you don’t leave samples with your candles, kids. At least it was a complimentary fruit and not ocean breeze or something.

Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa, Malt, Plums

Don’t remember where I got this, but it was time to try it. This really does smell like cake. The flavour is more caramel, and maybe pecan. I know this is a cake tea, but it is really sweet. Overall, I’m glad I picked up the single serve bag, but don’t need a canister.

Flavors: Caramel, Hazelnut, Pecan, Vanilla

I’m having this while watching the newest episode of Once Upon a Time. It smells pretty fruity. The flavour is similar, but more mild. Green tea works better with the fruit flavours. Still tastes like Summer, but it’s nice than the black tea version.

Flavors: Fruity, Mango

This was from my b-day sampler. It smells like seaweed salad a little. And also spinach. The flavour is sweet, and mildly green. Makes me want sushi.

Flavors: Seaweed, Spinach

I’m not sure of my opinion of sencha, so I always want to try more. It smells nice and green. The flavour is a tiny bit sweet, and reminds me a lot of spinach. Not bad, but I think this something I need to try at a tea house sometime.
