Moving is stressful, so I had to have some of this tea. It smells like the green base at first, then a little brown rice cakes. The flavour reminds me of noodle soup. This would be a good tea for winter, as it has warm and homey feel.

Flavors: Toasted Rice

Yum, noodle soup! :D

Cheri

You’re almost ready to go, right?

Lariel of Lórien

Kinda. It will be a busy weekend, we leave on Monday.

Cheri

You so got this.

Stephanie

It’ll be over before you know it Lariel! Good luck :)

Lariel of Lórien

Thanks. It’ll likely take lots more of this tea.

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

Sounds yummy!

Well, I still can’t make matcha correctly. I tried it the way I make hot cocoa. Perhaps I used too much of the powder. It certainly smelled good, but the cookies and cream didn’t come out in the flavour until I added a little sugar.

Cheri

I don’t get a lot of flavor out of the flavored matchas until I upped the flavor strength in my orders. I usually get at least distinctive if not robust flavor.

I always have to sweeten my matcha…that’s part of why I don’t drink more matcha

Oh, sweet malty. This is very good with my apple pie. It has the nice, malty flavour. There is also a sweetness, and it is smooth. Thanks to cookies for the sample.

Flavors: Malt, Sweet

Today I learn that Assam can go with Mexican food. Or I’m just weird. There was the malty scent when I brewed. The flavour seemed a bit darker than I was expecting, but still good. This might be something used in the breakfast blends.

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

Veronica

I have this sitting in my waiting-to-be-tried basket. I’ll have to open it later today. It sounds great!

Starfevre

Glad you like it. Happy Birthday!

Lariel of Lórien

Everyone should try this with apple pie.

Anlina

I love bergamot and berry flavour but for some reason, every time I’ve looked on 52teas at this, it just didn’t register in my brain that this is bergamot with berry flavour. :P So I think I need to try it.

So, on Sunday, I went to the Lupicia store. This tea was one of the samples they offered me. It smelled very much like herbal pumpkins, and the sweet potato. The flavour was like having a warm pumpkin pie. Would have preferred more sweet potato though.

Flavors: Pumpkin, Sweet Potatoes

Tealizzy

I really want some of this. Going to try and stop in to the store at lunch today!

Lariel of Lórien

They’ll probably still have it as a sample.

TeaBrat

I think they only have it until the end of October, fyi

Tealizzy

I went today! The sample was the ginger one they advertised, but I picked some of this one up anyway. I like it! :)

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.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 2 min, 0 sec

Sounds yummy!

KiwiDelight

But Mirkwood is scary…Greenwood?

TeaBrat

their green teas are really good

Lariel of Lórien

Yes, I meant when it was still the Greenwood.
