650 Tasting Notes
Phoenix, rise again in my tea mug. It has a baked bread, and raspberry scent. Got a little wood in the dry leaf. The flavour is kinda toasty, with hints of raisins. Mild raisin toast, perhaps. There is a nice, mild sweetness. (Goes well with anime and farming games.)
Thanks for the sample, Teavivre.
Flavors: Baked Bread, Grain, Grapes, Raisins, Raspberry, Wood
Another of my samples. When I first opened the package, I got a fruity scent. Perhaps dark cherries or plum. And a little pine. There is a more bread-like scent in the brew. The flavour is mostly fruit, with some baked bread notes, and very mild smokiness.
Flavors: Baked Bread, Cherry, Fruity
Having tea in the Grand Canyon with dragons is fun. The leaves smell so nicely like strawberry. There is more of a floral scent in the brew. I get a light, sweet berry flavour, with floral notes and a mild hint of cream. Better than I remember. Still tastes like Spring.
Thanks to Teavivre for the sample.
Flavors: Creamy, Floral, Strawberry
My sample was in the box went I went on my walk this afternoon. Oh my, this smells so good. A rose garden with hints of cocoa. There is a sweet floral flavour, and chocolate notes. I get a slight yam taste as well. Overall, fantastic.
Thanks Teavivre. :)
Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa, Floral, Rose, Yams
My samples arrived pretty quickly. At about the same time as my DVD from Texas, actually. The leaves have that pretty gold hue. There is lovely yam scent, with a bit of sweetness. It has a mostly sweet potato flavour, with hints of honey. I need to try more later to see how well it goes with historical Chinese movies. Because science?
Thanks to 3 Leaf for this sample. :)
Flavors: Honey, Sweet Potatoes, Yams
Why do the Star Trek writers call the 19th century ancient? Anyway, having coffee for a week only made me want more tea. The dry leaves have a scent of cocoa and sweet potatoes, but I get some smoke in the brew. There is a bit of a raisin and caramel flavour, with grain and nut notes. Overall, it tastes like I kinda want pie.
Flavors: Cocoa, Grain, Nuts, Sweet Potatoes
Tea! Earl Grey! Hot! (I would have tea with Picard, if he asked. Or Patrick Stewart.)
There is a nice creamy, bergamot scent. The flavour is vanilla/ citrus. Not too strong, and a little the sweet side. Goes well with brownies and Star Trek episodes.
This was a sample, so I’ll have to get more.
Flavors: Bergamot, Cream, Vanilla
Tea, the final frontier! These are the voyages of the Starship Teakettle.
So, I am back home now. After a week of drinking coffee, it’s nice to have tea again. This smells like malt and cocoa. There is a nice malty flavour as well. Watching the very first Star Trek- TNG episode. Q is pretty amusing.
Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa, Malt
