drank Strawberry Paraiso by Teavana
469 tasting notes

I did a rare trip to a mall today and had one of the best Teavana experiences ever! The sales people weren’t pushy or rude at all! The main gal I was talking to was really chill and it made me feel really comfortable and didn’t raise the urge to run out of the store like I have done before.

I decided to get a cup of this iced to go. It smelled really good and didn’t have hibiscus in it like the other strawberry tea I was interested in. The first few sips were good, but then it changed. The beginning of each sip was nice, light and strawberry like, but then it morphed into a light, but very distinctive smoked salmon taste. Like lox without the salt. I’m sure if I added salt it would be dead on. I really do love lox, so I was able to drink it, but I think I prefer that taste NOT in my tea. Glad I didn’t get any of this to take home!

Aww, that’s so great about your store visit. Less great about the, uh, salmon. Fish should never be liquid.

LOL. Liquid fish makes me think of SNL and the Bass-o-Matic.

I think there is a time and place for liquid fish… like in a bisque with some fish chunks, but I think that is the ONLY time and place.

I never saw that SNL skit. I’m going to have to youtube it.

Found it. Oh god… ewww! Drop some strawberries in that blender and it’s probably a close match to that tea!

My name is Dustin and I like tea.

I’m an added flavor kind of tea fan. I want my tea to remind me of cookies and cakes with coconut and almond slices with a hint of chocolate drizzled on top. I want dancing ponies and flying monkeys shooting off fireworks! I like a little sugar in my tea. I love caffeinated tea, but since I limit myself to one cup a day, I have been exploring more rooibos and honeybush teas. Rooibos now = meh and I have upped my caffeine tolerance. BRING ME CAFFEINE!!!!
