625 Tasting Notes
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
‘Tea, Earl Grey, hot!’
I’ve been having a lot of EG lately, I blame a certain Starship Captain. My latest sample from the local shop. I’ve had lavender EG, and rose EG, but not in the same cup. Smells nicely like lavender with some rose. The rosemary scent comes out better when brewed. There is a mostly bergamot and rose scent. With the lavender notes as it cools. Then there are hints of rosemary. Got this because I thought the blend sounded interesting, but it’s very good too. (Had the first cuppa with cinnamon rolls.)
Flavors: Bergamot, Lavender, Rose
Having a tea the same colours as the Irish flag sounded cool. So I got this tea. The scent is more on the strawberry side, with some coconut. There is a sweet, creamy berry flavour. Not sure what I was expecting, but the tea is more smooth in the second cup.
Goes well with lemon pastries.
Flavors: Coconut, Creamy, Strawberry
I’ve been hoarding this tea for a while, and today I decided it was time to make another cuppa. It smells so nice. A scent of cocoa and vanilla. There is nice vanilla/ chocolate flavour as well. Mainly, it reminds me of creamy milk chocolate truffles.
Glad I found this sample today.
Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa, Creamy, Vanilla
