67 Tasting Notes
Ummm. Not sure how I feel about this. I can taste the fruit and the chocolate but not a strong flavor of either. There is not much ‘fire’. I also think I over steeped this which is really not the teas fault but it did affect the taste of the tea.
Incidentally I bought the Teavana Tea Tumbler which I hoped would be a good replacement to my Timolino. Basically, I was hoping it wouldnot be as good as the Timolino. I think I like it, it keeps the tea hot but not scaling hot. I also added an ice cube inside which might have helped keep the temp to a drinkable temperature.
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.
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.
