drank Apricot Caramel Torte by Teavana
5 tasting notes

Disclaimer: I’m a tea newbie and I drink my tea with Splenda and a splash of light soy milk.

I don’t generally like green tea all that much, but I visited Teavana for the first time today and it smelled so intoxicatingly yummy that I had to try it. It’s beautiful to look at, chunky with bits of fruits and bright orange carrot!

It definitely smells like caramel, both dry and steeped. I taste the apple more than the apricots and raisins, but the caramel flavor comes through. It’s smooth and sweet and creamy, just like I like my teas. I think the company’s description of “dessert in a cup” is a good description. There’s an unusual sweet tartness to this tea—I know that probably doesn’t make sense, but that’s the only way I can explain it.

I’m on the second steep, and it’s still quite good, though the flavors are more delicate this time around. I can smell and taste the apricot more with the second steeping.
