drank Blackberry Mojito by Teavana
4231 tasting notes

I have Wifey-Woman to thank for sending me a bit of this tea to try. Since I don’t shop at Teavana very often (hubby is under the false assumption that I have “enough tea” – whatever that means), I am glad to have on-line friends who are willing to share bits of these teas to try. :) Thanks Wifey-Woman (aka Little Mew Brew!)

This is really good. I can taste the blackberry and the apple, and even the plum and raspberry. It’s pleasantly sweet and tart. The spearmint is a bit hidden in the first couple of sips, but the flavor develops nicely. Underneath it all, I can also taste the green tea peeking through.

If I were to change anything about this, I would make it hibiscusless. (Yes, it’s a word, I just made it up) I think that the hibiscus is a bit much here – it doesn’t really overwhelm the other flavors, but, I’d rather not be tasting it at all.

Other than that, though, I really am enjoying this blend.

hibiscus can certainly do overwhelm a good tea! I find places like teavana rely on it for lack of tea blending inspiration *grumbles

I am a Green tea drinker at best; I am newly to other teas. I am amaze at how much information there is out there and the types all from Camellia Sinesis. Fantastic, uh?

I have yet to sample to Mojito from the Tea Forte sampler I received. Will let you know if I can discern the flavors; not sure what is Mojito; although description depicts refreshing notes of Spearmint with Rooibos.

I can’t know as yet since not tried it. You noted spearmint as hidden in the first couple of sips; keen taste buds.

Mojito is a South American inspired drink that mixes lime, mint, and I think rum, sometimes coconut. Very yummy indeed!

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:
http://www.teareviewblog.com

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
