Is this tea trying to be a burnt French dessert? If so, I’m sure why it has so much tropical fruit. It smells nice though, like cinnamon and almonds. I taste more rooibos than oolong.
This really more of a mildly spiced nut herbal blend. Which is fine, just not what I was expecting. Could use more nut, and a little less fruit.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Fruity, Nuts, Rooibos
I really like the scent of this. The lemon and fig makes me think of scones. Not sure if I’ve ever had a scone like that, but there should be one (even if I make it myself). Lemon comes out more in the flavour, but it is a cup of fruity goodness.
Thanks for the sample, boychik
Flavors: Fig, Lemon
I’m having this totally out of season, but I didn’t write a review in winter. It smells like wassail, like a lot. Must be the blend of spices. There is hibiscus in this, so it turns a nice red colour. The flavour is a mix of cranberry, orange, and spices. Pretty much, it tastes just like it smells, only hibiscus… which is mild, but unneeded.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Cloves, Cranberry, Malt, Orange, Spices
I have now reached 300 tasting notes. Exciting, isn’t it? Anyway, this tea has a stronger rose scent brewed. The flavour is bit milder compared to other rose teas I’ve had. It still has that nice floral flavour to it.
Since it’s a ‘Summer’ tea, maybe I should have a cold brew.
This is the latest in my quest to try as many Chinese black teas as possible. It has a lovely scent of honey and maybe bread as well. The flavour is sweet with hints of orange, along with a bit of wheat toast. Overall, I’ve found this to be a good morning tea.
Flavors: Baked Bread, Honey, Orange
I was looking forward to this sample. It smells awesome! Like sweet potato crisps and honey. The honey comes out a bit more in the flavour, and I get a little roast yam too.
Any tea that can taste like my fave tuber is a hit for me.
Flavors: Honey, Yams
This is the last of my new Teavivre samples. It smells so good… like malty cocoa. The flavour tends toward grape. Reminds me a little of wine somehow. I might need a few more cups… for uh, science. And tasting purposes.
Flavors: Cocoa, Grapes, Malt
