563 Tasting Notes
1 tablespoon for 375 ml
The brewed tea has a nice balance of black tea, maple and oatmeal aromas. There is a smooth baked goods quality to the smell that I attribute to oats. Hint of chocolatey-ness in the aroma that may be the result of me letting this sit too closely to chocolate-themed tea.
Flavour is extremely mild. There is only a hint of the smoothness from the aroma near the end of the sip. Almost metallic flavour in the middle of the sip which hints to some other flavours that may have been lost in the transit of this tea. Slight astringency (almost sharp bitterness) near the end of the sip from the black tea. Only the slightest hint of sweetness. Hint of roasted taste near the end of the sip.
Thanks Kittenna for letting me try this!

The brewed tea has an enticing aroma. Creamy and baked good notes with a soft sweet peach. Reminds me a bit of peach oatmeal.
On the sip, pleasant malty sweetness. The sweetness is a sustaining note appearing slighty at the start of the sip, blooming into the middle and carrying through until the aftertaste. Very smooth tasting. Creamy notes in the flavour. Black tea notes present and peek out in the flavour near the end. All the flavours are very well blended. Velvety mouth-feel. Hint of flavourful astringency in the aftertaste.
Thanks to Kittenna for letting me try some of this one!

Garlic flavour is pleasant- not too strong. Slightly bitter and wheat-y mouthfeel in the middle of the sip. Vanilla sweetness is present into the aftertaste. Tomato-y hint and maple syrup sweetness from rooibos flavour into the aftertaste. Overall, the flavour profile is rather plain. Slight creamy mouthfeel.
1.5 tablespoons for 375 ml
Light eggnog flavour on the sip. Strong creamy taste and distinct eggnog sweetness near the end of the sip. Oceanic qualities of the green tea detectable but very well blended. The flavours are balanced in a way that they complement each other. Very well captured eggnog flavour on the aftertaste. Milky-type flavour comes out as the tea cools.
2 tablespoons for 375 ml of water
Primary mint flavour with spices in background. Licorice sweetness in aftertaste. I am not detecting any floral or orange flavour in this blend. Only minimal lemongrass flavour but it seems to be well-blended and not overwhelming with a 6 minute infusion.
