My book cup today. Finally getting around to reading Alcott’s ‘Little Men’. The tea has a scent of spices. Mostly cinnamon and nutmeg. There is a creamy, spice flavour. Might not have brewed it warm enough, but still good. Will trying with almond milk next time.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Creamy, Nutmeg


Ooh, I love ‘Little Men’! In fact, I’ve always preferred it over ‘Little Women’. The boys stole my heart.

So far, I like ‘Little Women’ more. But this is a good book too.

Decided it was time to have this tea. As it is almost Autumn. The scent is a nice apple. And I get some brandy too. There is a sweet apple flavour. Makes me think of apple pastries, actually. Has a some of the Assam base in the flavour, but not much.

Flavors: Apple, Pastries


I’m so excited for Autumn – this month’s teas will really reflect that!

My other press sample. It smells like being in the woods. Somewhat like leaves and trees. There is a very herbal flavour. Not what I’m used to, and… it’s, um, unique.

Another afternoon black tea. This one smells very much like plums. It has a sweet, fruity flavour as well. Had it with some really good dark chocolate.

Flavors: Plums

Picked this up from the store earlier in the year. Since it nearly time for Autumn, decided to have this for my afternoon cup. It smells nicely malty, and a bit more fruity when I brewed it. The flavour is a sweet malt, with some red and dark fruit notes.

Flavors: Fruity, Malt, Red Fruits

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


Haha! Geeky Teas has an Earl Grey Tea, Hot! That I just got yesterday. Cracked me up.

I know! There’s also a Star Trek Picard blend somewhere.

Ah, September, second best month of the year. Now begins the countdown to Autumn. The first scent I get is apples and ginger. With some nutty notes. There is a nice apple flavour, and some spice. Reminds me of apple pastry (not quite pie though).

Flavors: Apple, Ginger, Nutty, Pastries

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 like this one and it can be picked up super cheap on Amazon sometimes.

Lariel of Lórien

Amazon sells teas now?

Amazon has about everything now! That’s how I bought my BANA tea starter kit
