647 Tasting Notes
First tea note of the New Year. Happy 2016. Since it was too snowy to go anywhere, I am home with tea and books. Got this tea from the other local shop. Because there was a sale. Smells nicely like bergamot. There is a mild citrus flavour, and base tea is kinda dark. At least, it does when first brewed. More bergamot flavour comes out as it cools.
Flavors: Bergamot, Citrus
Decided to open this one today. It smells fantastic. Like spices, and holiday baked goods. The closest in would probably be snickerdoodle or sugar cookie. Great blend of spices and sweetness in the flavour. One of my very favourite winter blends.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Cookie, Creamy, Spices
From the English Favourites collection at the local shop. First brewed, I got a floral and citrus scent. It does also have rose petals. The citrus comes out mostly as mild lemon, and there is some orange flavour as well. Mostly tastes bright and sunny.
Flavors: Citrus, Floral, Lemon, Orange
Merry Snowmas! Picked this up from the Nob Hill local shop on Solstice. Turns out I already had some at home. Which is fine, since I like this as a Winter tea.
It smells a bit malty, with some notes of cocoa. Not really smoky once brewed. The flavour is really good dark chocolate, with mild fruit notes. Because I’m so festive, I’m having this while listening to Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker and reading “Hogfather” by Terry Pratchett.
Flavors: Cocoa, Dark Chocolate, Red Fruits
On the third day of Winter, I decided to have this tea. From the Phi tea box. Has a fantastic scent- caramel and nuts, with chocolate. Very much like those ‘turtle’ candies actually. The flavour is like caramel covered pecans. Really tastes like those candies.
Flavors: Candy, Caramel, Chocolate, Nuts, Pecan
