791 Tasting Notes
Had a cup at a local coffee/tea shop. It was okay, but the tea seemed to be hiding behind the fruit.
This is my favorite pumpkin tea I’ve had yet. I’ve been on the lookout, but so far hadn’t found a good match. Enough pumpkin to be pumpkin, and perfect spices. My office smells so great right now!
Just finished off a tin of this, out of season despite my previous reviews. It’s such a nice cup of tea. My inclination is to replace it immediately, but I’m going to go with autumn teas from now until the holiday season.
I wasn’t sure what Canadian Breakfast tea would be, so I picked this up at a local coffee shop. It’s good! Strong! Would love some (almond or soy) milk and sugar!
Weirdly, I picked up raisin—or something like it—in this cup. It doesn’t appear that others have had that sensation, but it was really noticeable to me. Also, much better piping hot than after sitting out for a little while.
Solid cup of black tea. I expect a bit more than “solid” from Samovar, so I think I’ll stick to my regular sources for breakfast blends, but it’s a quality cup.
Excellent cup of green tea! I had this yesterday, so at this point I can’t even pinpoint why I liked it so much, but it’s a green I’d be happy to return to.
I’m wondering if this blend has changed over the past few years based on reviews. For me: it was an unusually nice cup of camomile. I don’t normally love that herbal, but the other herbs in this balanced it well. It was also really pretty steeping: several flowers that expanded to fill the teabag.
