‘Tea, Earl Grey, hot!’

I’ve been having a lot of EG lately, I blame a certain Starship Captain. My latest sample from the local shop. I’ve had lavender EG, and rose EG, but not in the same cup. Smells nicely like lavender with some rose. The rosemary scent comes out better when brewed. There is a mostly bergamot and rose scent. With the lavender notes as it cools. Then there are hints of rosemary. Got this because I thought the blend sounded interesting, but it’s very good too. (Had the first cuppa with cinnamon rolls.)

Flavors: Bergamot, Lavender, Rose


Haha! Geeky Teas has an Earl Grey Tea, Hot! That I just got yesterday. Cracked me up.

Ah, September, second best month of the year. Now begins the countdown to Autumn. The first scent I get is apples and ginger. With some nutty notes. There is a nice apple flavour, and some spice. Reminds me of apple pastry (not quite pie though).

Flavors: Apple, Ginger, Nutty, Pastries

Having a tea the same colours as the Irish flag sounded cool. So I got this tea. The scent is more on the strawberry side, with some coconut. There is a sweet, creamy berry flavour. Not sure what I was expecting, but the tea is more smooth in the second cup.

Goes well with lemon pastries.

Flavors: Coconut, Creamy, Strawberry


I like this one and it can be picked up super cheap on Amazon sometimes.

Tasting note number 550. I went to an art event this morning without having any tea. So I had this as my first cup. Which also happens to be the first note. There is a scent of honey and fruit. The fruity sweetness comes out in the flavour as well.

Flavors: Honey, Red Fruits

I’ve been hoarding this for a while, so it was time to have a cuppa. There is a somewhat pine scent, and a little bit malty. The flavour is mostly honey and baked bread. It has pine notes as well. Having another cup in my pinon pine forest.

Flavors: Baked Bread, Honey, Malt, Pine

When life gives you lemons, make lemon bars. But make sure to use the right sized baking pan. Decided to have this tea with mine. It smells like caramel and baked bread. The flavour is a bit more chocolatey. The bread taste goes well with my dessert.

Flavors: Baked Bread, Caramel, Chocolate


This is a good one…

I’ve been hoarding this tea for a while, and today I decided it was time to make another cuppa. It smells so nice. A scent of cocoa and vanilla. There is nice vanilla/ chocolate flavour as well. Mainly, it reminds me of creamy milk chocolate truffles.

Glad I found this sample today.

Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa, Creamy, Vanilla


This is a good one.


I think that I like this one over North Winds…just a little sweeter to me.

By Yavanna, this smells good. There is a malty chocolate scent at first, then I get more yams. The flavour is pastry flavour, along with more sweet cocoa notes. Goes great with my fantasy novels, and my Japanese historical fiction.

Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa, Pastries, Yams

Picked out as a sample for me. This smells mostly vegetal. The flavour is a bit sweet, and a little medicinal. Probably not the best to have with my eggs.

Not really my cuppa, but glad I got to try it anyway.

Flavors: Medicinal, Vegetal

Since I don’t have a gaiwan (yet), I’m having this in yellow flower much. Smells nicely like rose. Like I put some flowers in my kitchen. The flavour is mildly floral and a little sweet. Don’t really get much of the base tea, but I like the rose.

Flavors: Floral, Flowers, Rose
