650 Tasting Notes

Review re-post.

So, I ordered a sampler pack… and it came today. This smells pretty good, like malty chocolate. In the flavour I get more fruit, and bread… along with the cocoa. So pretty much it’s chocolate covered fruit, with plums, and some really good bread. Seems a little out of place in the Summer though, I think this is an Autumn morning tea.

Flavors: Baked Bread, Chocolate, Cocoa, Fruity, Malt

Finally got around to trying this. The smell kinda reminded me of French toast, the maple and cinnamon scents. It had a too sweet, and mild spicy flavour. There isn’t any apple that I noticed. So I ended up with a cinnamon tea instead.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Maple Syrup

Finally got around to trying this again. Might have accidentally brewed in a basket that formerly had strong black tea. This one does smell nicely like orange and chocolate at first. The flavour reminds me of citrus dark chocolates. Good tea, but for some reason the first brew turned out better. Thanks to Cheri for this sample.

Flavors: Dark Chocolate, Orange

When I first went to make this tea, I forgot it was green. Oops. So, today I decided to try it again. The is mostly green, with a little bit of spice. There is a creamy, veggie flavour. Wish I had more of this to try. Thanks to Cheri for the sample.

Flavors: Cream, Creamy, Vegetal

A sample from the nice Cheri. It smells so good. There is a caramel scent, and it reminds me a little of creme brulee. The flavour is creamy caramel with some malty notes.

Flavors: Caramel, Creamy

Mmm, that’s one of my favorites! :)

Exciting, I get to be the first review. Came back from my holiday to find my samples from Cheri had reached my post box. Didn’t really drink much tea on holiday, as it was mostly bagged, and heating water on the stove took a while.

Since it’s raining today, I decided to try this one. It smells mildly malty. The flavour is a bit of malt and fruit. Good for rainy days.

Flavors: Dried Fruit, Malt

I was unpacking some yesterday, I found my sample. It smells nicely nutty, either like almond or natural peanut butter. The flavour is similar, with some grain notes. Overall, an interesting tisane. Thanks for the sample, Bird Pick.

Flavors: Nuts, Nutty, Peanut

Ah, snow… it makes me want to stay in to drink tea and read Dickens novels. This one smells nice, with a mild malty scent. The flavour is a bit of dried apricot, with some notes of sweet potato bread. I also really the colour of the leaves and brew.

Very good tea for my new winter weather.

Thanks to whomever sent me this… Marzipan? We had snow here yesterday, so I need to drink more black teas. This one has a malty scent. The flavour is somewhat malty with hints of dried orange, and some other fruit. It certainly warmed me up today.

Flavors: Malt, Orange Zest

drank Grenada by Lupicia

The name of this tea makes me think of Granada. I got a sample sachet the last time I went by a Lupicia store. There is a fruity smell and flavour. While I don’t really taste the individual fruits, together it kinda reminds me of tropical starburst.
