drank Strawberry Misaki by Teavana
25 tasting notes

This one was a pleasant splash of color on a wintry day. The kids liked watching the tea bloom at the bottom of the carafe. As it began to bloom it turned the water into the normal light gold color with a hue of subtle red. After steeping a bit, I poured a cup and was surprised but the smell of strawberry and the slight taste of strawberry followed up by the gentle taste of white tea. I’m not normally a white tea kind of person, as it often comes across as too light, and is often overpowered by the accompanying flavor. In this case it was strawberry. I noticed this particular tea can’t steep past it’s allowed time or you can end up with the flavor of a strawberry potpourri which can be a bit off putting. However if you want to get more of that strawberry flavor this might be your best bet. If was different and I enjoyed it more for the aesthetics than the taste. Worth a try though:)

Just a normal guy that gave up the normal daily coffee for a healthier, more flavorful, more intrinsically complex beverage. Being a US marine and deploying on the regular makes enjoying a decent cup of tea difficult at times but shows that even the “rough” guys can enjoy a great cup of tea.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: Absolutely awesome! I don’t know why i’m spending time typing about them instead of drinking!
85-89: pretty damn delicious, and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the cream of the crop.
84-80: Tasty teas that I enjoy and would drink again when i can find it, but more than likely will not make a second appearance except for freebies and samples.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but wouldn’t seek out. They don’t quite do it for me in one aspect or another; often just not quite my style
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: The unfortunate bottom category. This tea is just disgusting to me.
