This one smells lovely steeped! I’m getting kiwi with hints of bergamot and rose.
This reminds me of a candy, but it’s not really candy-like (I seem to be lacking in actually describing things as of late). The green tea is a nice base for these flavours. I really liked this tea, despite failing to describe it in any way that will be helpful if I need to look back XD.

Wow — both the blueberry scent and taste here are strong, but well done and somehow not cloying or obnoxious. There is a maple aspect here as well that adds to this as well. There is a natural sweetness here, but yet not a sweetness? This is akin to blueberry maple syrup – delightful.
This is not one I need in my cupboard, but tasty nonetheless.
This has a fascinating scent that isn’t altogether my favourite, but it really does smell like the components noted — vanilla and rose at the forefront with subtle peach.
I would say the taste is a mix of vanilla and peach, with the vanilla more predominant. Vanilla really isn’t my favourite and often causes my stomach to rebel. For someone who enjoys vanilla, this would be a good tea!
This came in my order in error instead of Pêche Abricotée, but when I contacted DF, they immediately sent the correct tea and let me keep this one — customer service for the win!

Thank you Cameron!
This is a really smooth tea. There is an upfront light vegetal flavour, followed quickly by a subtle buttery note. The flavours are soft here, but still delightful. I have been enjoying two steeps of this and somehow made it through 25g without making a note!
This one smells like that Quaker peaches and cream instant oatmeal from my childhood.
I would say this tastes very similar to the scent. The peach is more at the forefront, while the passionfruit, very subtle, falls to the back, but is definitely identifiable. I also get perhaps a hint of apple here, which adds complexity to the tea and is quite nice.
It says strawberry, so I’m going to concentrate more on my next cuppa to see if I can find it. At least I have lots to experiment with!

I’m smelling hints of orange from the steeped tea, and perhaps the scent of baked goods.
The taste has a lovely almond baked good flavour that’s reminiscent of an almond croissant from a nearby vegan bakery that I love. There are hints of orange that come in as well, but subtle and complementary. I’m not getting very much/any ginger, but I’m secretly thrilled about that. This is a really delicious tea. I would definitely consider ordering this one.
