Post breakfast while watching The Paradise. There is a nice scent of bergamot and other fruit. Perhaps grapefruit. The flavour is a bright citrus.

It would be good with cookies.

Flavors: Bergamot, Citrus, Cookie, Lemon, Orange

I like eating shortbread cookies with Lady Grey.

Shortbread cookies are great with nearly any tea.

I like shortbread with Scottish Breakfast, and I guess Grey blends too.

Found this while I was out doing errands. It smells really nice, a bit creamy. The flavour is a good, creamy vanilla. Tastes a little like ice cream or cookies. Went well with my caramel chocolate. (Going to make another cup while watching Death Note.)

Not the right season, but I am watching an anime about werewolves. It smells so nicely like blueberries. A little a berry fruit leather at first. There is a scent of chocolate too. I like little Force ghosts, I mean ghost sprinkles. The flavour is a sweet blueberry, with some creamy chocolate. Sorta liked those chocolate covered dried fruits. Very good.

Flavors: Berry, Blueberry, Chocolate, Cocoa, Creamy

Meant to have this around X-Mas, but it got kinda misplaced. Well, it’s still winter. I like the white chocolate chips. It smells creamy, with spices. Nutmeg comes out more in the flavour. Otherwise, it has a cream-like taste. Okay, but it might be better cold.

Flavors: Cream, Creamy, Nutmeg, Spices, White Chocolate

Sipdown. The sample was too small. Wish I could get more. This tea still smells awesome. Has a very nice chocolate scent. And it’s a bit nutty too. There is a good cocoa and nut flavour. With a bit of toasted rice, which comes out more as it cools.

Having another cup while reading Discworld novels.

Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa, Nuts, Nutty, Toasted Rice

Liquid Proust was looking at the possibility of blending something similar to this in 2016. You may want to watch or ask him about it.
It’s listed as one of his projects in this thread. I too love it and would like something similar. :))

Surprisingly, I haven’t review this yet. Was pretty sure I had.

Anyway, there is a kinda roasted grain scent. I also get a bit or toast or nuts. The flavour reminds a bit of houjicha, except more mild. It has that similar nutty taste. Got the sample because it sounded interesting, and it turned out pretty good.

Flavors: Grain, Nuts, Nutty, Roasted, Toast

Another tea I picked up for travel. At first, it has a nice malt scent. Once brewed, it is very… bold. There are a few different teas in this blend, but I mostly get Assam flavours. Which is normally something I like, but comes across a little too strong here.

Flavors: Malt

Picked this one up from one of the local markets. I’d originally planned to get this for a road trip. It has a very mild bergamot scent. There really isn’t much in the flavour either. Does seem like something I’d have while traveling.

Flavors: Citrus

Sample sipdown. Having a mug while catching up on Downton Abbey. The rose scent is very nice. And there is of course, some bergamot. Then there is chocolate from the base. Flavour- the rose and citrus go really well together. I rather like floral grey blends. And this makes for a very good afternoon tea.

Flavors: Bergamot, Citrus, Floral, Rose

" The studio was filled with the rich odor of roses, and when the light summer wind stirred amidst the trees of the garden there came through the open door the heavy scent of the lilac, or the more delicate perfume of the pink-flowering thorn."- The Picture of Dorian Gray

Since I finally decided to read the novel, this seemed like a good pairing. There is a nice scent of bergamot and apples, with some sweetness. The flavour is a nice citrus, and caramel notes. It is a good tea for the winter months.

Flavors: Apple, Bergamot, Caramel, Citrus
