Picked this up in the store because it smelled really nice. It certainly has a nice strawberry scent dry. The flavour is somewhat tart, but still good.

Will have to try it iced.

Flavors: Berry, Strawberry

On a quest, I found this at the town market. Thankfully I’d brought enough gold. It has a nice berry scent. And is pretty fruity in general. The flavour is a mild berry, but really good. Have with scones before going on adventures.

Flavors: Berries, Berry, Black Currant

So, I’ve decided living in the city isn’t for me. I’m moving to a town called Konohana to take over a farm. One of my new neighbours has a tea house. Decided to make this tea for her. It has a nice berry scent. As I’ve not had elderberry before, I’ve no comparison. There is a cranberry scent/ flavour. The flavour is a little tart, and probably would be good iced.

Flavors: Berry, Cranberry, Tart

Hoppy Easter! Since I don’t have any chocolate at present, decided to have this tea instead. Playing some Fire Emblem Fates (Conquest) while waiting for it to cool. There is a nice scent of chocolate and berries. A little darker on the chocolate than I remember though. The strawberry flavour is somewhat hidden on a creamy dark chocolate. Overall, still a really good tea. Had some with my strawberry french toast this morning.

My latest sample from the local tea store. The scent is mildly floral, and slightly earthy. There is a bit of a honey flavour. It’s a bit on the creamy side too.

Good for overcast days when you just want to play Harvest Moon.

Happy Spring! This weekend, I went to a gem and mineral show, and a chocolate festival. Picked up this tea on the way home. More of a summer fruit, but I like blueberries. It has a nice berry scent. The flavour is a mildly sweet blueberry. Simple, but very good.

Will have to try it iced soon.

So, I am finally watching all the (on DVD) Star Wars movies in order. Today is ‘Revenge of the Sith’. Not sure if they have currants in a galaxy far, far, away. Haven’t much in the way of currants, except in scones. Anyway, certainly smells nice. Like a cross between dark berries and raisins. The flavour is similar, but a little on the sour side.

Alright, but there are better fruit flavours.

Flavors: Berries, Berry, Raisins

Cranberries are good during winter, though I usually like them in pastries. There is a cranberry and raspberry scent, reminds me a little of juice. The flavour is somewhat tart, a bit sweet, and mostly berry. Good with rooibos cookies.

Flavors: Berry, Cranberry, Raspberry

“15 miles to the Love Shack” Okay, the name does make me think of the song. Got the tea from the local shop because it smelled really good. There is mostly a chocolate scent, and more mild on the cherry. The sprinkles are a nice touch. It has a good creamy chocolate flavour, and there is some fruit. Mostly sweet, and makes me think of dessert.

May or may not have a tin roof.

Flavors: Cherry, Chocolate, Creamy

Post breakfast while watching The Paradise. There is a nice scent of bergamot and other fruit. Perhaps grapefruit. The flavour is a bright citrus.

It would be good with cookies.

Flavors: Bergamot, Citrus, Cookie, Lemon, Orange

I like eating shortbread cookies with Lady Grey.

Shortbread cookies are great with nearly any tea.

I like shortbread with Scottish Breakfast, and I guess Grey blends too.
