65 Tasting Notes
I love strawberry teas and this one from Teavana does not disappoint. It is still not as good as the Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait from Davids but still good. It has a sweet cream flavor that I rather like. It tastes like a warm strawberry yogurt. Again not as good or as cheap as the tea from DT so changes are I won’t be buying it again, but I was pleasantly surprised with this one.
Yum! This was super good and a great cup of morning mate. It was like having a water down version of a hot cup of cocoa. I added a splash of milk to make it creamier. I think, although, I like it it is not something I need to have every day. It will be enjoyed but probably not replaced once its done. I have just too many other teas I must try before this one is replaced.
Had this this morning and it was perfect. It was refreshing and invigorating. I loved the mango with the hints of pomegranates. I had it in my Aladdin mug so it might have overstepped, but it didn’t not make the tea bitter. It was a great juicy tea!
I had a long day at the science centre with about 7000 kids…. Needless to say I needed a cup of tea when I got home. This tea called my name.. It smells amazing. It tastes really good to. Sweet coconut with a smooth texture. Reminds me of Coco Lemon Thai but more subtle. I really like it.
Went to David’s today and bought 20 g of all the new teas, plus 100 g of Strawberry Rubarb Parfait… I tried copabanana first, the dried smell is so good, bananas galore. The first sip was okay but not great. I think I was getting more coconut than banana, but as it cooled it got better. The banana went back to the front and the other flavors took a step back. I think I like it more than Banana Dream Pie (DT) and Choco Banana Foster (Teavana). I will be adding more of this tea to my stash.
I have had this tea a few times but have yet to write about it. First few times it was okay…. not bad but not memorable. Today however, I am really liking it. I don’t really know if I steeped it differently, the only thing I know I did this time was add a tsp of rock sugar. Maybe the rock sugar brought out the sweet flavor of the caramel.
A nice smooth and sweet tea.
I got this tea for my 8 year old who really wanted to try it iced. I made my cup hot as a night time treat. The smell scares me, I am certain I will not like this tea. It smells odd. Taste: yup, don’t like it. It tastes a bit like soap or aftershave. I can’t place it but I really hate it. Darn. Hope it is better iced.
This tea is weird…. It is sweet and tart, cinnamony and fruity. It tastes like a mishmash of favors, yet I don’t hate it. No, I don’t love it, but I don’t hate it. It is hitting the spot tonight as my nighttime tea. I am sure I will have no trouble finishing my 25 grams.
Having this tea right now and all I can think is…. wow, love the color. The brewed liquid is awesome, gorgeous cherry red color. The leaves are very pretty too, I see big chunks of dried fruit, cherries and pineapples. Stepped it for about 4 minutes instead of the recommended 2. I tend to forget that I am making tea and always forget to set the timer.
Okay so taste…… its interesting, it tastes just like cherry cough drops. hmm, not sure I can get past that thought. It tastes like someone melted a Cherry Halls into my cup. Not my favorite, and not something I will buy again, but I am sure I will finish what is in my stash.
Lets start by saying I don’t like rum, which makes me wonder why I even bought this tea. I love steepster for just that, guiding me to a tea that I would never get because of its great reviews.
I am happy to report that I really like this tea. The leaves are pretty and smell sweet and buttery. I steeped it for a really long time, no idea how long, maybe 10 minutes. It is absolutely delicious. I don’t taste the rum, I do get a creamy buttery taste with tiny hints of coconut. I had it straight but will try it with milk and rock sugar next.
