Once Upon A Time-
There was a girl who moved from her coastal town to a new one in the desert mountains. She packed away her tea for travel. When she got to the new land, she was unsure where her tea ended up. Some was found fairly soon, but the girl did not find it all. So, in the Winter, she visited a local shop for something to have on snowy days. While she was pleased with her new finding, the girl knew she still had other tea somewhere. Then one day, the girl found some of the tea she had stashed away. It was time to have some old favourites. Upon brewing, she noticed that the tea did not smell as fruity as it had it the past. However, it was still a creamy pineapple. The cake flavour was no longer so present.
Flavors: Creamy, Pineapple
I’ve been hoarding this for a while, so it was time for a cup. It smells nicely chocolate. Then I get the orange scent more in the brew. There is a chocolate flavour with some citrus notes. A bit like orange hot chocolate, actually. With some notes of malt.
Flavors: Chocolate, Citrus, Cocoa, Malt, Orange
My book cup today. Finally getting around to reading Alcott’s ‘Little Men’. The tea has a scent of spices. Mostly cinnamon and nutmeg. There is a creamy, spice flavour. Might not have brewed it warm enough, but still good. Will trying with almond milk next time.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Creamy, Nutmeg
Picked this up from the store earlier in the year. Since it nearly time for Autumn, decided to have this for my afternoon cup. It smells nicely malty, and a bit more fruity when I brewed it. The flavour is a sweet malt, with some red and dark fruit notes.
Flavors: Fruity, Malt, Red Fruits
Why don’t they use they name ‘creme brulee’? It’s an actual dessert. ‘Brulee’ just means burnt. This is another tea I had at the store. There are sooo many scents/ flavours going on here. First, there are the usual pumpkin spices. Then there is the creamy white chocolate. And a cocoa flavour. Didn’t really notice any pumpkin. Thankfully, the chicory decided to hide in the sample I tried. It’s okay, but trying too hard.
Flavors: Chocolate, Cinnamon, Cloves, Cocoa, Cream, Nutmeg, Spices, White Chocolate
Had this at the store today. It smells like apple and spices, mostly. Then there is the hibiscus, which comes out strongly in the flavour. Should be called hibiscus cider instead. There is a cinnamon scent/ flavour as well. With some cloves.
Overall too sweet, and too much hibiscus.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Hibiscus
