515 Tasting Notes

This smells really good. Like almond extract, and cookie batter.

The flavour is sweet orange almond. It does sorta have the winter feel I was going for too. (So of course I must try in Summer.)

This is my version of the blueberry creme. Or muffins. Maybe both.

The scent is so nice. (I really like their blueberry tea.) It has a nice creamy blueberry flavour that goes well with the rooibos vanilla. Maybe not really muffin, but still a good brunch tea.

My blend… because I like their almond teas.

The flavour is nutty, creamy marzipan. There maybe needs to be a little more of the cream tea. Otherwise, it makes a fine brunch blend.

This smells nicely floral. The flavour is more sweet and fruity. It’s not overwhelming like similar teas I’ve had either.

I like yams (sweet potatoes), I can’t remember what the proper name is anymore. Anyway, I like the pie which results.

This was my attempt to give the pie a little more flavour. The added cinnamon is really nice. And now it’s more liking having pie with cream and almond.

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.)
