Another that came as a sample from my classmate. It smelled so nice as leaves. Brewed- there is mostly a berry scent, with some apple. In the flavour, the berry still comes out more. Mostly, it’s just a sweet green tea.

Flavors: Berry, Green

I find that I am usually disappointed by fruity green teas. :(

Lariel of Lórien

Yeah, I am liking their fruity black teas more.

Because I wanted to try some green tea, I got this one too. Apples! It smells so nicely like apples. Not so much Autumn apples, but Japanese apple candies. The flavour is fruity, mildly sweet, apple, and I like the base green.

This would be something I’d like to try iced.

Flavors: Apple, Apple Candy, Green Apple, Red Apple

I got to try this iced. Mmm… grapes. There is a nice, fruity scent. The flavour is sweet, and certainly tastes like muscat. Somehow a lot of their fruit flavoured teas end up tasting like Japanese candies I like. This one reminds me of a certain gummy candy.

Liked it, but I prefer the oolong.

Flavors: Fruity, Grapes

drank Milk Caramel by Lupicia

This is one of the teas my classmate sent when she went back to the store.

Such an interesting sounding tea, so I had to try. There is a nice roasted, sweet scent, slightly nutty scent. The caramel came out more in the flavour, it made for a very different tasting pairing with the houjicha. I was surprised how much I liked it, and it made me think of dessert. Perhaps a dessert I need to make. (Now I want to try other flavoured houjicha.)

Flavors: Caramel, Nutty, Roasted, Sweet

This was the winner in today’s game of “Help Lariel select a tea” in the chat room. Teavivre was nice enough to send this so I could try more white teas. I get a mild floral/ honey scent. The flavour is pretty similar to scent, and still mild.

Not really my preference, but it was nice to try something different.

Second steep- Used a bit more leaf, and I like the floral flavour more.

Flavors: Floral, Honey, Sweet

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.

Flavors: Cocoa, Dark Chocolate

Preparation
Boiling 1 min, 15 sec

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.

Flavors: Peach

Yay! That’s a good one!

Lariel of Lórien

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

Stephanie

Yay you got your momo :D
