I’ve been hoarding this almost since I move here. It smells mostly like chocolate, and some fruit. Decided to make it iced. There is a pasty flavour, with raspberries and cocoa. Not sure if I really get waffle, it’s more like a croissant. Might have sweetened it a little much, but it tastes like a nice dessert. Brewing it hot, I get more raspberry.

Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa, Fruity, Pastries, Raspberry

I like breakfast teas, so I got this. Originally, it was purchased in winter. The brew has a nice dark red/ amber colour. There is a lightly malty scent. That comes out in the flavour, along with slight sweetness. And it also nicely smooth.

Flavors: Malt, Sweet

Well, this does smell floral. There is a citrus scent as well. The flavour has more chocolate notes this time, with hints of rose and orange zest. Still really good.

My latest sample from the local tea shop. This is named well, since it’s also monsoon season in my state. The brew smells sweet, and a little floral. That is what I get in the flavour as well. Overall, it’s just smooth and good.

Merry Teamas! (aka… Christmas in July. It would make more sense in June, but alright.) This tea came from Canada. Thanks, Uniquity. This tea smells and tastes like the Kasugi gummy candy. Which is nice, since they use fruit juice. Decided to have this iced, as I would likely have iced tea on Christmas if I lived in the Southern Hemisphere. I added a little sweetener, but that was not needed. Having it cold did bring out the melon flavour nicely.

Cold- 95

Flavors: Melon


This one is really nice iced


Oooh, I just thought to check and see if you did a review. The smell when I finally opened the bag was drool-worthy. Maybe I’ll make myself some in a little bit, finally! Glad you enjoyed. :)

Since I don’t live near certain stores anymore, I got this from my new local shop as a Summer tea. Firstly, it smells awesome. A nice blend of citrus and strawberry. The flavour is more lemon with hints of berry, but not as strong.

Good, but will have to try it iced.

Flavors: Berry, Citrus, Lemon, Strawberry

Makes great iced tea, I get much more strawberry flavour.


I tried making it iced with Frank’s quick pourover method and it was great!

I make it for one 8 oz service. Brew hot, then add ice and sweeten.

My latest sample from visiting the local shop. This tea smells so good. Really like the scent of cardamon. There is a nice spice flavour, it’s almost like a masala chai. It also has a little bit of a dark malty taste. (Would probably be better for snow season.)

Flavors: Cardamon, Malt

St. Coombs from Figments Tea Shoppe- I got this one from the local shop because it was on sale. There is a nice malt scent. The flavour is dark, with a little malt and sweetness. Might have brewed it a little too long though. It’s a good rainy day tea.

Ah, apricots. They go with so many things. Today, it was French toast. While reading part two of the quest to destroy the Dark Lord’s evil jewelry. This tea smells really good. I get a scent of cocoa, with hints of honey. The flavour is more honey, and generally mildly sweet.

(Have two cups with adventure stories.)

Flavors: Cocoa, Honey

When you get many apricots, make crisp. Then eat it while reading about a quest to destroy the Dark Lord’s evil jewelry. This tea smells so nice and sweet. I get mostly a scent of walnuts. The flavour is on the sweet, nut side as well.

Pairs well with both the crisp and my adventure story.
