drank Blackberry Mojito by Teavana
7 tasting notes

Steeped for 2 minutes at 175F, as per tin!

Inspection prior to steeping doesn’t seem to show a lot of green tea leaves, but a lot of dried fruit, which makes me wonder about the actual classification of this as a green tea blend.

That said, it tasted very nice, with a pleasant blackberry aroma. initially it tasted tart on the tounge but then the blackberry and apple came through, with a pleasant fresh aftertaste. I assume this was the mint catching me on the rebound, because I didn’t smell or taste it before or during imbibing.

The second steeping was a LOT weaker than the first run. The colour was also a lot paler, so I am guessing this is a one and done infusion, either that or I need to double the steeping time. The initial brew was a healthy purple and almost glowed in the sunlight.

That said, it made for a very pleasant drink, my main gripe would be I am slightly concerned about how much green tea I actually drank – which was the whole point of the exercise!

Hi there new person. This is one of the only Teavana tea’s I like. I tastes like real Blackberries to me if you steep it a long time. I used to pick berries with my kids in the Coast Mountains close to Santa Cruz California and both my daughter and I like this tea for those memories.

Hello not-so-new person. I have just tried this cold-brewed for 24 hours in the fridge in a mason jar – a lot less cough droppy, a lot more subtle. Of course it helped that it was hot outside and my a/c was broken in my car.

Thanks for the hello!
