Smell, Dry: Sweet, reminds me of brown sugar and maple nut candies, with a hint of rum.
Smell, Wet: Much stronger maple and molasses smell that finishes with brown sugar and then black tea astringency

Tastes: very sweet, almost like a slice of fruitcake or gingerbread with a sugar glaze. As it cools, I get rich fruit notes such as plums and dates. The sip finishes with lightness and even slight cooling taste that keeps it from getting too heavy.

This is a very resilient tea that can stand up to long steep times. I wish it wasn’t pre-sweetened as it can get a little heavy and rich if not drinking as a dessert tea.

Flavors: Brown Sugar, Dates, Maple Syrup, Molasses, Peppermint, Plums, Rum

Preparation
1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

I really enjoy this tea whenever I’m feeling down. It has a lot of nutrients and seems to help with whatever ails me, whether headaches or a sore throat.

It smells savory, peppery with a hint of baked bread. The taste itself is much sweeter due to the rock sugar and dried fruits, though it’s kept from being to sweet by the flowers. I generally re-steep this and add more than the typical 8 ounces so that it isn’t too sweet.

Flavors: Dates, Flowers, Goji

This tea is not for me. It has an odd aftertaste that is almost soapy and overly floral. It is astringent and slightly savory in scent.

The scent is malty, dry, fresh, with a finish of caramel. The taste is surprisingly sweet, astringent, but in a refreshing way. Caramel, hints of cocoa, a little earthy and at times reminds me of a pu-erh. As it cools, the astringency increases and it has almost a “chewy” finish with hints of grain. The nots of grain increase and remind me of barley tea or fresh corn.

Flavors: Caramel, Cocoa, Corn Husk, Roasted Barley

The scent is buttery, grassy, and sweet. The beginning of the aroma smells like green tea but finishes closer to an oolong. I really like the flavor of this tea because it is sweet and floral, reminding me of blooming jasmine teas, but it is grounded and well balanced.
