625 Tasting Notes
Sample sipdown. Having a mug while catching up on Downton Abbey. The rose scent is very nice. And there is of course, some bergamot. Then there is chocolate from the base. Flavour- the rose and citrus go really well together. I rather like floral grey blends. And this makes for a very good afternoon tea.
Flavors: Bergamot, Citrus, Floral, Rose
" The studio was filled with the rich odor of roses, and when the light summer wind stirred amidst the trees of the garden there came through the open door the heavy scent of the lilac, or the more delicate perfume of the pink-flowering thorn."- The Picture of Dorian Gray
Since I finally decided to read the novel, this seemed like a good pairing. There is a nice scent of bergamot and apples, with some sweetness. The flavour is a nice citrus, and caramel notes. It is a good tea for the winter months.
Flavors: Apple, Bergamot, Caramel, Citrus
A long, long time ago… in a tea mug far away. I got this while on snowy planet with fellow Resistance member Stephanie. It smells so nicely like chocolate and mint. When, I first brewed, there was more of cocoa scent. There are only mild notes of mint in the flavour. As it cools, I get more of a puer taste. Not sure how it compares to a grasshopper pie (hard to come by on this planet), but it’s pretty good.
May the Force be with you.

First tea note of the New Year. Happy 2016. Since it was too snowy to go anywhere, I am home with tea and books. Got this tea from the other local shop. Because there was a sale. Smells nicely like bergamot. There is a mild citrus flavour, and base tea is kinda dark. At least, it does when first brewed. More bergamot flavour comes out as it cools.
Flavors: Bergamot, Citrus
