I now have my own stash of this tea (I first tried it through a coworker). It’s a windy cold day, and I’m really in the mood for something spicy. I feel like my indie cred is totally blown drinking Mall Tea but guess what – I don’t care! I really like this! It’s spicy but citrusy and tastes so mellow at the same time. That mate gives quite a kick energy-wise, but tastes nothing like black tea. I feel like I could drink this allllll day. Love, love, love!

I think the place Teavana is going to have in my life is only online, and only for these unique blends (I know where to get much better single source tea for less money), but after years and years – I have caved. I love that Youthberry Orange concoction, I love this. and I also got a Vanilla Honeybush which I forgot to review but I will next time I drink it – but it’s super yummy too. The bigger they come, the harder they fall, huh?

This is one of my all-time fave teas. If you ever want to split an order, let me know. :)

Will do :) I wouldn’t be surprised if I sipped through this 4oz quickly!

I’ve tried to replicate this blend over and over to no avail. I too go through it quickly as I let it steep the length of the cup. It’s so delish! :) Enjoy!

Mall tea! You are too funny! I am probably going to get the Youthberry to drink with my oldest daughter when she comes over. The younger girls hardly touch flavored tea, but oldest likes it best, except she also likes puerh well enough now. I had hubby pick up their Golden Monkey about a year ago. Good, but not as good as Harney and Sons. Have you tried the more recent harvest of GM? Much stronger, and quite delicious!

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
