650 Tasting Notes


I recently got this as a sample, but I’ve already tried it.

There is a nice floral scent, and some fruit- perhaps lychee. I get more lychee in the flavour, and some green grapes. Much more fruity than I remember. Went very well with my breakfast (French toast). Thanks to Teavivre for letting me try this again.

Flavors: Floral, Fruity, Grapes, Lychee

When it is snowing, I drink more tea. Makes it nice to watch from inside if I have a nice warm beverage. Today, I decided to try this. Mostly for warmth and because this is my first mug of oolong tea this year. The dry leaves have a sweet, dried fruit scent, with some roasted nuts. Brewed, I get more roasted nuts. That comes out more in the flavour, along with something toasted grain bread. Thanks to Teavivre for this sample.

Flavors: Dried Fruit, Grain, Roasted nuts, Toast

After hanging out in the snowy woods again, I decided to have this tea. There is a sweet, bread like scent, with hints of honey and sweet potatoes. The flavour is more molasses and bittersweet dark chocolate. It is a bit darker than the others I’ve tried this weekend, but still good for snowy evenings.

Flavors: Dark Chocolate, Grain, Molasses

While staying inside for a bit (snow again) I decided to have this tea and a Beastmaster episode. There is a scent of maybe dark brown sugar or molasses. The flavour is on the sweet side, with some plum notes. It is good for winter afternoons.

Since it’s snowy outside, I decided to have my first Teavivre tea of the year. Yesterday, it was with an Elizabeth Chadwick novel, and today with Stargate SG-1 (my second favourite television show). This tea reminds me so much of dark chocolate. It has that dark cocoa scent, with a little bit of malt. The flavour is a little sweet, and has the chocolate notes. Glad I got to try this, as I haven’t had any keemun in a while. Thanks to Teavivre for this sample. :)

Flavors: Cocoa, Dark Chocolate, Malt

This is a nice tea for a snowy evening in my new state. The malty scent is nice, though a little more mild now. There is still a sweet citrus flavour. Very good.

How to know you’re very into tea- making different teas in Harvest Moon (farming video game). Question- do some people really put jam in their tea?


Apparently jam in tea is a Russian thing. I haven’t tried it myself.


I’ve seen “tea jam” but had no inkling it was a actually for tea. Interesting!

Tried to use jam, not I used hot enough tea. It tasted a little sweeter and more like berry (jam flavour), but it didn’t all melt.

There is snow again, so I’m inside with tea and a video game. This tea reminds me of English Breakfast. It has that sweet, dark malty scent. The flavour is bold, and a bit molasses. Good for Winter, but on the strong side.

Thanks to Tealated for this sample.

Thanks for the sample, Tealated. It smells nice, I really like the scent of bergamot. There is a prominent creamy flavour, The vanilla really comes out. This was one I had several cups when it was snowy here. Makes a good Winter tea.

Flavors: Bergamot, Creamy, Vanilla


Thanks for trying our tea!

Ah, Winter. My excuse to drink more tea. Today was the birthday of Professor Tolkien, so I made lembas cake. It turned out well. This was my tea of choice. The flavour is nice, almonds and some cinnamon. Went well with my cake too.

The Road goes ever on and on…


Sounds like a nice tribute.

While traveling, it’s much easier to have bagged teas. This is one I tried at a relative’s house. I liked how this tea smelled so nicely like spices. The flavour reminded me a bit of wassail or a similar Winter beverage. Had more while watching snow yesterday.
