I not sure what this mint is , but I shall assume this is peppermint. Smells really nice. The mint goes out well, there is more vanilla in the flavour. And somehow it makes me grave ice cream. (Mint chip with cream soda maybe.)

Sipdown. I had some of this with the Sugar and Spice blend. Still not sure why pineapples are coffee cake, but it went well with the spices.

This does smell nicely like chocolate… something. It tastes, uh—- fruitastic. There are other fruit flavours in here. Very sweet too. (On the artificial side.)

One plus- no hibiscus. (Which I enjoy botanically.)

Flavors: Sweet

I wanted to try more green rooibos. This does smell like blueberries, other fruits, and hibiscus. Why has the hibiscus invaded my mug again? There is some blueberry flavour, but it’s pretty hidden. Perhaps I need to try this cold instead.

This is perhaps the best brunch tea I’ve had recently. Goes very well with French toast.

I how this tea actually smells like figs. The coconut is nice. There is more coconut in the flavour, but I don’t really even notice the fennel. Don’t think I brewed this hot enough, and I didn’t really taste the puer, but went well with breakfast.


Fig coconut puerh sounds good. Never thought to try it because I hate fennel.

The fennel didn’t really declare itself.

I saw figs in this, I swear. Hidden in so much other fruit. Smells nice though, in a “I’d totally want this as a scented lotion or lip balm” way. It tastes sweet and fruity. Not much in the way of fig flavour (but maybe that didn’t make into my steeper), but at least the hibiscus didn’t decide to declare itself supreme lord of my tea mug.

Flavors: Apple, Fruity, Rose

I am on a quest to try as many Chinese black teas as possible. This smells really, I like the honey scent. There is a sweet, malty flavour. (It went well with my doriyaki.)

Glad I finally got to try a Golden Needle tea. Thanks, Tao Tea Leaf.

I had so much green tea yesterday, it was time to try something different. This one smells really nice, like toasted coconut. It has a light, sweet flavour. The coconut is less prominent on the second steep, but it’s still nice and creamy.

Thanks for the bonus sample, Tao Tea Leaf.

I wanted to try this for uh, tasting reasons. It smells like toffee and licorice. And I’m sure why paprika goes in a tisane, but that is a scent I get too. There is some chocolate in the flavour, but I mostly get salt, spice, and licorice root.

This is certainly an interesting assortment of flavours.

Flavors: Licorice, Salt, Spicy
