687 Tasting Notes


My sample box came today, and this is the first sample I tried. There is a nice mild nutty scent. I also get some vegetal notes. The flavour is sweet with a bit of chestnut. It is a subtle flavour, but it goes well with my almond cookie.

Flavors: Chestnut, Green, Nutty, Vegetal

Computer, green tea, hot.

Captain’s tea log.

Part of a past tea sampler. This tea has a roasted/ nice nutty scent. The flavour is mostly toasted rice, with some other grain notes. It makes me think of the autumn or the woods.

Very glad I was able to try some green teas again.

End log.

Flavors: Grain, Nutty, Roasted Nuts, Toasted Rice, Toasty

Another of my new samples. It has a very nice scent of yams and stonefruits, with some honey notes. There is a lovely sweet yam and apricot flavour.

Overall, it is very good. Goes well with Pokemon too.

Flavors: Apricot, Nutty, Sweet Potatoes, Yams

Playing farming simulation games makes me want tea. At the moment, it is Skytree Village. So far, I’m enjoying fishing. (Spring is a pretty season.)

Anyway, this smells really good. There is a scent of almonds and cranberries. The flavour is also cranberry and almond, with mild chocolate notes. Makes a good winter tea.

Flavors: Almond, Chocolate, Cranberry, Nuts


Can you grow tea in the game? ;-)

Not sure yet. You can in the Story of Seasons games though.

One of my newest samples. It looked interesting.

There is a very nice cream, and lavender scent. The flavour is creamy vanilla, which is really good with the lavender and bergamot. Very glad I finally tried some.

Tea for wizards who like earl grey, so I HAD to try it. The scent very nice and mostly bergamot. There is also a little chocolate, and berry. Blackberry, chocolate, and earl grey make for a very nice flavour. Pairs well with certain fantasy books.

Flavors: Bergamot, Berry, Blackberry, Chocolate, Cocoa, Cream

The Autumn Moon (aka Harvest Moon) is today. So I got some of this tea at the Adagio store in Chicago before my train. It smells fantastic. There is a scent of creamy citrus, with a little coconut. The flavour is cream and bergamot, with mellow coconut notes.

Very glad I was finally able to try this.

Flavors: Bergamot, Citrus, Coconut, Cream, Creamy

This smelled pretty good in the store, like a nice blend of spices. The scent when brewed is mildly cinnamon and a little chocolate. There is a spice flavour, but I don’t really get anything s’mores. Not bad, but a little disappointing.

Flavors: Chocolate, Cinnamon, Spices

I tried this iced the other day and was pleasantly surprised! I thought it tasted very s’more-like.

Lariel of Lórien

Oh, I’ll try iced then.
