461 Tasting Notes
I wanted to try this again because I had not in a while. In fact, I didn’t take very good so notes. So, Mandy was nice enough to send me some.
It smells nicely spiced. Not sure what a pumpkin creme brulee would be like, but I want to make one. This does have some creamy pumpkin flavours. Though I mostly taste the spices. Now that I tried the Ceylon, I rather like this one for the base tea.
Flavors: Creamy, Pumpkin, Spices
The snozzberries smell like snozzberries! Er, I mean raspberries. Which is pretty good, and a little bit of cocoa. There is more of the berry in the flavour, but I do get the chocolate notes as well. Towards the end of the cup, more of the base tea comes out. Which is very good, as that is the Kundaly I’ve gotten to like so much. Thanks Mandy for this.
Flavors: Berry, Chocolate, Cocoa, Raspberry
I’m not sure, but I might have some sort of tea powers. While I was searching for another caramel houjicha, somebody mentioned this company, and I found this tea. It smells nicely nutty and like caramel. The flavour reminds me of this soft serve I got from the Japanese market. This will now be one of my evening teas.
Flavors: Caramel, Nutty
My second darjeeling of today. First off, it pairs nicely with apple pie. There is a lovely scent of blueberries, and bergamot. The flavour is more on the earl grey side, but with nice blueberry taste as well. Having it with the pie was a bit like really good fruit salad.
Flavors: Bergamot, Blueberry
One of my Steepster friends told me about this company. I wanted this tea because it sounded interesting. It smells different, like a darker green or dark oolong. The flavour is on the sweet side, with some smoky taste. There is mostly a smooth and mellow cup, and the smoky taste is subtle enough to be present and not overpowering.
Overall, it is very plesant and kinda makes me think of the forest of Mirkwood.
