A birthday chocolate from a couple years ago. Having an orange colour hot cocoa is really pretty cool. I’d forgotten the flavour was not orange as well. However, it is a nice and creamy white chocolate. The sachet is very cute, and Autumn appropriate.

Flavors: Creamy, White Chocolate

Happy Birthday, Lariel! That sounds like a fun hot chocolate! :)

My birthday and lunar eclipse tea. I brewed this and went outside to watch end of the total lunar eclipse. The smells sweet and herbal. There is some vanilla cake frosting taste. Mainly this tea is like herbal cake frosting. Interesting, and goes with my lunar event.

Flavors: Cake, Frosting, Herbs, Vanilla

Oh, I get to be first! My evening cup while I watch Sleepy Hollow (the series). The scent is nicely creamy and floral. There is a kinda strong rose flavour, and the vanilla gets a little lost. As it cools, there is more creamy vanilla taste.

It’s interesting, and I want rose ice cream now.

Flavors: Creamy, Floral, Rose, Vanilla

When I went to make this, my first thought was that it smells like a Yunnan tea. There is certainly a baked bread scent, along with the citrus. The flavour is like if I was fresh baked wheat bread with orange zest. Very good, wish I had more.

Flavors: Baked Bread, Bergamot, Citrus, Orange

So you’re saying this pretty much tastes like….lembas bread??

Lariel of Lórien

Hmm…perhaps. More testing is needed.

This was my box of samples from Star. At first, it smelled nicely minty. When I brewed it, the licorice root flavour came out. There is way too much of that root for my taste.

Flavors: Licorice

I haven’t tried it yet and I will keep that in mind.

drank Yuzu by Lupicia

I tried this at the store today. It was so good iced. There was a nice citrus scent, similar to lemon. The flavour was bright and citrus. Now I want to try more Yuzu things.

Flavors: Citrus

Yum! Did you get to try Kumquat?

Lariel of Lórien

It was not a sample there, I asked.

I wanted to try this because it sounded so fruity, and there was no hibiscus. It smells like these fruit snacks I liked as a kid. They came in either cherry or kiwi, and with rolled coconut. The flavour is on the apple side. Reminds me of fruit punch, which I’m having warm for some reason. There isn’t much kiwi flavour though.

Praise be to the Giver of Fruits!

Flavors: Apple, Cherry, Coconut, Fruit Punch

I like raspberries, but not so much raspberry flavoured things. Mainly because they’re blue for some reason. This tea is thankfully not blue, and even has the actual fruit. Huzzah! The tea itself smells and tastes like a raspberry sorbet. While I still lean towards this fruit paired with chocolate in tea (and in general), I like the creamy flavours.

Flavors: Berry, Cream, Raspberry

Now catching up on the show Forever (kinda makes me think of Castle/ Sherlock Holmes/ Highlander. The male lead makes it even more watchable.) I wanted to try this because it reminds me so much of a blend at the ‘local’ shop. This smells like pumpkin and melons. While I’m used to the certain spice blend, this one tastes like a pumpkin shake. It’s nicely creamy. Overall, a good evening cup.

Flavors: Creamy, Pumpkin

Terri HarpLady

Now I want a pumpkin shake!

drank Butter Rum by 52teas
461 tasting notes

So, I am a Tea Pirate, and I sail on the Jolly Teapot. Once again, I have a rum flavoured tea instead of my preferred beverage. This one is rather pleasant. It has a creamy, butterscotch type flavour, along with the rum. Not the coconut of my last rum tea. In fact, this kinda reminds me of the rum raisin ice cream, sans raisins. And warm. If that makes sense. Thanks to my boatswain for sending this for me to try.

Flavors: Butterscotch, Creamy, Rum
