613 Tasting Notes
Finally got around to trying this sample. And thanks to Tea Spot! :)
This blend smells really good, the chocolate scent is pretty strong. The flavour kinda reminds me of coffee. I can see why this would be a gateway tea for the coffee people. It’s probably too late in the day for this, and it’s most flavourful.
This was part of my Steepster Select box. It’s rainy here, so I needed some black tea. The scent reminds me of a breakfast tea blend, except a little sweeter. I enjoyed the malt, and honey flavours, but that is a little hidden under the black tea flavour.
I’d probably enjoy this on Winter mornings with oatmeal or something.
Flavors: Honey, Malt
It feels a little wrong to brew this with an electric kettle, but I don’t have a gaiwan (yet).
I’m really liked the scent of these Teavivre greens. This one smells mildly of jasmine, and slightly sweet. There a little bit of peach in the flavour, it’s mostly jasmine. For some reason jasmine makes me crave steamed rice dishes.
Thanks to Teavivre for sending me this sample. :)

Green tea steeping… successful! I made a cup of this while watching Castle.
This smells so good. The scent is a bit fruity, which I really like. It has a nice, mellow green and fruity flavour. Thanks to Teavivre for letting me try this sample.
If it wasn’t so late here, I’d have another cup.
Thanks Teavivre for letting me try this sample.
This is my breakfast cup. As soon as I opened the package, I smelled the straw berry. Which is a fantastic scent when you’re waking up, or any other time. The scent carries over to the brewed tea, along with the nice green scent of the leaf. I like the strawberry flavour a lot, and I really like the light flavour of the oolong.
Thanks for the free sample, Tea at the Sea. It comes with a cork sailboat? I’ll need to make that for my bookshelf. I do like the little sample bags.
It’s something that would look nice a gift shop of a port town.
It smells lovely. I really should have more unflavoured black teas. This has a sweet, malty flavour. Shall have to make some again in the morning.
