I ate the last mango in Paris…. but there was still mango tea in the pantry.

Mango is the unofficial fruit of today. There is a scent of mango and some citrus notes. The flavour is nicely mango, with a little peach. A good fruity blend.

Flavors: Citrus, Mango, Peach, Tropical

Tasting note of the beast.

One of my recent teas from the local shop. There is a nice mild mango aroma. The flavour is lightly sweet and tropical. Would probably be good iced.

Flavors: Fruity, Mango, Tropical

The weather has been kinda nice, and spring-like lately. So I’m listening to Jimmy Buffett (The Last Mango in Paris album) and having this tea. There is a nice mango scent. It has a sweet tropical flavour. This is a very good fruit blend.

The dry aroma is toasted grains and roasted nuts. When brewed, I get more of a popcorn or ricecake scent. There is a nice toasty flavour, with nutty notes.

I wonder how it would be with toast.

Flavors: Grain, Popcorn, Rice, Roast Nuts, Toasty

I got as a sample because it sounded interesting. The scent is certainly vegetal, and a little earthy. There is a sweet vegetal flavour. It is almost like a light green tea.

Flavors: Earth, Green, Vegetal

Lunch tea, as selected by tea chat. There is a bit of smoky scent, with plum notes. It has a more nutty aroma when brewed. The flavour is sorta roasted nuts.

Pretty good with fried rice.

Happy Year of the Boar!
One of my new tea samples. I decided should drink more green and oolong teas. There is a nice ginger scent, with more fruit notes when brewed. The flavour is sweet and mostly ginger. It does have a lemon and lychee flavour, but that is slightly hidden.

Overall, I really like this blend.

Flavors: Citrus, Ginger, Lemon, Lychee

There is a nice aroma of flowers and chocolate. The flavour is more floral with mild chocolate and vanilla notes. It is nicely sweet, and a good dessert tea.

Had some while re-reading “Peony in Love” by Lisa See.

Flavors: Chocolate, Cocoa, Floral, Rose, Vanilla

My tea while playing Harvest Moon- The Tale of Two Towns. (This game always makes me want tea. As my favourite town has a nice little tea house.) There is a nice floral scent. The flavour is a bit sweet and lightly floral. It is a nice relaxing oolong.

Flavors: Floral, Osmanthus

The tea of my Star Trek re-watch. There is a nice citrus scent. Mostly bergamot, with some lemon notes. It has a sweet citrus flavour. A good tea for winter mornings.
