419 Tasting Notes

The folks in the chat room kept saying I should try this on. So today I finally got to. It smells like earthy dark chocolate. There is a flavour like rich, dark, slightly sweet hot chocolate, and the name makes me think of a certain candy bar.

Since I joined the Dark Side long ago, it was certainly time to try this tea.

The very nice Ost sent me this to try. It has a nice green and fruity scent. This has a good peachy green flavour, along with some creaminess from the vanilla. I had fresh peaches with it, which was even better. Now I’ve tried all their peach teas. :)

Flavors: Green, Peach, Vanilla

According to the Steepster Chat Room, this should be my evening cup. I really like the name of this tea. It smells fantastic… very much like a rich, creamy chocolate. There are notes of fruit, and a bit of malt from both bases. The flavour makes me think of a really good hot chocolate with a light cherry/ chocolate dessert in a rich graham cracker crust, and a bit of creamy vanilla ice cream. And now I’m hungry.

Thanks Cheri for letting me try this.

I got this in the post from Cheri today. And it was selected by the folks in the chat room.

This is a nice blend of two teas I really enjoy, and one type I really like. Most Yunnan blacks i tried give me notes of yams, and I get a bit of that in the nose. There are also some scents of chocolate, honey, fresh baked bread, plums, and general sweetness. The flavour is all the things I like about black teas (and the WP ones I tried)… cocoa, honey, bread, and a bit of yams. Overall, it tastes like fabulous.

At long last, I get to try this. White peaches are one of my favourite fruits, and this tea smells so much like them. Great scent of peach in both leaves and brew. The flavour is sweet, and a bit juicy, certainly tastes like white peaches.

Worth my trip out of town for some yesterday.

It seems kinda low rated, but I like it. White peaches win all!

I thought this would be good out camping during a full moon, so I’m of course having it on a sunny day at home. It smells so herbal… there is mint, and lemongrass. There is something else that comes out in the brew, maybe the elderberries. Flavour— mmm, lemongrass, then there is some mint (spearmint, I think), there are some hints of smoky/ toasted marshmallow. Mostly it is just nicely herbal.

Flavors: Lemongrass, Marshmallow, Mint, Toasty

I got to try this one at the store. (The tea name is French, and I like it.)

Scent- nutty, cocoa. Flavour- creamy, chocolate, a nice nuttiness. Kinda reminds of Nutella, but a chestnut version. It also reminds me of this really good chestnut/chocolate torte I made in a baking class. Very good, and much better on the hot side.

Flavors: Chestnut, Chocolate, Cocoa, Creamy, Nutty

Mm that sounds so good! Didn’t even know they had this tea. I’ll have to get it next time I order or go to the store. :O

Stephanie

Ooooh I want to try this one some day :D

I’d like to thank the folks at Teavivre for choosing this tea for me.

This smells a bit floral. The flavour is mild, sweet, and somewhat green tasting. Another tea I like, but need to experiment with some more.

This is the first time I ever tried a tea like this, so I’m not sure if I made it correctly. It smells both like leaves and earth, and light and herby. The flavour is smooth, and mild, but seems like it could have been richer if I brewed it a little longer.

Overall, good. Thanks to Teavivre for letting me try this.

This is another I tried in the store. It smells like orange chocolates in the tin, and in the brew. Though when I had the sample, the flavour got way more orange. There was some chocolate, but it was really mild. Alright, but not what I was hoping for.

Flavors: Chocolate, Citrusy, Orange

You should try Three Friends from Butiki if you’re looking for chocolate orange. :D

Lariel of Lórien

Is that one also vegan marshmallow?

Cameron B.

Yes, the chocolate chips and flavoring are both vegan.

Lariel of Lórien

Yum! If anyone wants to send me a sample, I accept.
