107 tasting notes

Heads up guys, I got some lawyers on my tail about reviewing Teavana teas on here (apparently it looks like statements endorsed by the company if you have lawyer goggles on), so I will not be doing that for the time being. Sorry, you all will have to taste them yourselves!

Don’t be surprised if some of my reviews vanish, or for this blog to vanish entirely…but I will be contacting people personally if that’s the case. I’m not completely sure what’s going to happen yet, or what I may have to take down, but I will not be touching Teavana teas for the near future. I have a HUGE backlog of samples from other tea companies, so I may get to that some evenings instead. Otherwise, since Teavana teas are mostly what I’m drinking now (and I am not around as much to comment on other people’s tasting notes), I may appear to disappear. I’m not actually dead, never fear.

P.S. To whoever is watching me so closely, could you do me a favour and pass on to the appropriate department that we need more Earl Grey/Earl Grey Creme on a continual basis? MUCH APPRECIATED, KISSES.

That’s kind of awful.

Mercuryhime

Wow. That sucks. And I just started reading your entertaining logs. :(

Ninavampi

Sorry about that… I loved reading your notes!

Claire

That is terrible. I will miss your reviews!

Alphakitty

I feel like this happened to someone else on here too, they’re so strict about social media. A few of your reviews have made me REALLY want to try the new flavors, seems like good publicity to me. :(

Helena

Damn legal mumbo jumbo! Oh well review some other teas and stay with us! (Don’t go into the light….)

@Alphakitty – I feel like no reasonable person could read my reviews and think they were coming from the company. But I am not a lawyer, so I don’t know what would hold up in court.

@Helena – Don’t worry, I still have something like 100 other teas in my stash, LOL.

Profile

Bio

I’ve always been a tea drinker – I grew up drinking Tetley’s Orange Pekoe and their Chai, and considered myself to really like tea.

I’ve been working various retail jobs to put myself through higher education. One day at my store, a customer left a newly purchased bag of loose-leaf behind. We waited for three days for said customer to return, but they (likely not realizing where they had left their bag) did not return to claim the would-be brew. Too bad for them; lucky for me! I claimed the bag, took it home, and awkwardly made my first cup of loose-leaf tea with the only strainer we owned which was small enough.

I haven’t bothered with Tetley since. For the most part (and due to convenience), my patronage is limited to David’s Tea and Teavana. I also order from 52teas and Verdant Tea.

My rating system – hah, I don’t have a rating system. I rate teas a lot like Ebert rates movies. Everything’s relative.

I may often forget to mention it, but you can safely assume everything I drink is sweetened in one way or another – most rock sugar, or honey for green and white teas. I have not yet achieved drinking most tea clear. The few teas I drink unsweetened include milk oolong and genmaicha so far.

I currently work for Teavana. But I just work there, and my opinions about any of their teas are entirely my own and not meant to be reflective of the views of the company.
