drank MatéVana Herbal Tea by Teavana
1112 tasting notes

My coworkers gave me a gift certificate to Teavana for my birthday! This was one of my choices when I spent it (online, of course ;).

I like it. It’s nutty and chocolatey and roasty. Honestly, not coffee like or tea like in my opinion. Sweet treat like, maybe nutty hot chocolate like?!

I think I have to play around with the amount and time a little to my taste. It can definitely go more than 5 minutes, and I used 1.5 teaspoons in my 10oz brew mug, but I could have used two easily.

I am curious if this will grow on me if I make it stronger. I think it has potential.

Do you like chocolatey teas? I have a very large collection of Teavana teas and one tea I got by accident ( I sent my mom to Teavana and they convinced my mom into buying?!…I normally don’t like chocolatey teas) was “Slimful Chocolate Decadence” (Oolong) which is actually very good!! If you need any other teavana recommendations…Just ask ;)

I do like chocolatey teas! I’ll have to try that one – I like that it’s an oolong!

Doesn’t that one have some puerh in the base? I bet that would be so good with chocolate!

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
