500 Tasting Notes

Sadly, I am without coconut cream pie. So I decided to make a tea instead.

Perhaps I added too much vanilla. Reminds me a bit of those coconut ices I get at the Ren Faire. The coconut is nice without being too strong. So, I tried to make pie tea but ended up with ice cream tea.

This is my blend. I made because I like chocolate, and blueberries.

Smells really nice. The flavour leans mostly towards the blueberry, with a more mild flavour of creamy chocolate.

Is there apple in this? The flavour is mostly spices, and fennel. Oh, so much fennel. And aniseed. Mainly I taste those two herbs. It’s interesting and different, and odd, and kinda good all at the same time.

Smells nice like pumpkin. Maybe I brewed this too long. The flavour is mostly spicy, and caramel. A little of the pumpkin comes out, but I don’t get any cheesecake. It’s nice as an autumn caramel tea.

This smells kinda chocolatey. The flavour is more coconut/ almond with hints of chocolate. (Not really an Almond Joy, but I don’t have one for the comparison, and it’s pretty close.)

This is kinda like mild caramel, both in flavour and scent. Don’t really get any of the toffee popcorn, but maybe I should drink it with Doctor Who.

I decided that David’s Birthday Cake needed some berry flavour, so I added this. It smells so nice like strawberry. The flavour is creamy berry. Goes very well with the other tea, it’s like having strawberry milkshake cake.

Peaches for all my rabbits, please. The strongest flavour/ scent I get from this is the peach. While I like peaches, I was expecting something different.

This smells like the Lemon Lime Tart (except with ginger instead of cream). Which is to say…. so very good. The ginger comes out well in the flavour too (with a bit of fruitiness). And this would be good iced.

Tried this again with cinnamon chips from NMTC. I prefer my yams with cinnamon, so maybe that’s what was missing before. Better with a little bit of spice. Still smells really nice. (With added cinnamon- 79)
