What a fun blend. Chocolate & Pumpkin! I made a latte of this today. Nice balance of spices and chocolate. Great flavor.
This is a cheap and delicious Ice Tea bag that I buy for $3.99 a box at World Market. It makes that generic sweet tea that you find at your typical Thai restaurant. I usually add a generous amount of cream and sugar with this and steep for extra long (it never gets bitter). This is not a perfect Thai Tea but its a very affordable and quick solution. I’m still a big fan of the Cha Yen Thai from Teavana.
This is my #100 Tasting Note!
This tea has more champagne going on than raspberry. But that’s ok, I love champagne! Its still delicious. Also, The base of this tea tastes like green tea rather than a white tea. It has slight grassy qualities and hint of citrus. Not really getting raspberry though. I bet this would be great iced as well. Thanks Jackie T, this was a really good tea to try.
This is pure lemon bliss. Its both light and smooth yet flavorful. This is definitely one of my top white teas. You can taste the white tea and the lemony dessert aspects of this blend. In my opinion, this is better than Lemon Chiffon blends that I have had. Thanks Azz!
This is a yummy and sweet first cup of tea today. This tea suffers from the same problem as other “salted” teas I’ve had… Where is the salt? Don’t get me wrong, this is a yummy tea, just doesn’t match the name. It tastes identical to Caramelissimo by Teavana. This is a good tea for when you are in the mood for creamy caramel. I used some sweetener and milk with mine. I’m just acting like this is a maple creamstick. lol
Thanks to Jackie T for this sample.
As I try these rare and exotic teas (at least that’s what I consider them), it really opens my taste buds and my mind to what is truly out there! Teas like this make me realize that I had been missing out on this whole other world of flavors. It sounds hokey but it makes me feel closer to other cultures and regions trying all these interesting teas from different parts of the world. Its just so much fun.
Anyhow… This is a such beautiful tea. It starts off kind of earthy or woodsy and as it cools it has a floral & honey way about it. Finally, it ends with a citrus aftertaste. All of these notes in a very smooth oolong base. This is the type of tea I like to savor and hold in my mouth to appreciate. I decided to make this at the end of the night, so I could relax and sip slowly. I love the smell of this tea brewed as well. The scent has a dark and exotic way about it and tastes so different than the typical Oolong.
Thanks Azzrian for this delicious sample. My tea journey just gets more and more fascinating with every taste.
Another Strawberry Teavana Tea… This one is better than the strawberry pu-erh, which seemed to have an imbalance of flavors. It seems that the green & white tea compliments the fruit flavoring better. I guess I’m just not in love with this. It’s very flat, like warm unsweeted strawberry Kool-aid. No “tea” taste with this one at all. It is not bad just kind of boring.
I think the Strawberry Rose Champagne Oolong is their best strawberry tea so far. This may be a lot better iced, a lot of ‘fruity’ teas I prefer cold. It does have a pretty color once steeped
This is part of my teavana taste testing at work. My co-worker is a die-hard teavana fan and we get to share tea a lot of the times. This Pu-Erh is just ok. The biggest flaw is that The strawberry is kind of artificial tasting. I do like the earthy, smokey, peppery tones of the Pu-Erh. Definitely not one I would buy. Glad I got to try of course.
This is a flavorful and quality green tea. The fruit flavors are delicate and yummy. I do like it warm but I may try it out cold as well. I really love green / fruit blend teas cold. This isn’t a cup I would drink all the time but it is very good for what it is. Thanks Azzrian for the sample :-D
I got a used one as a gift from a friend and it is heavenly! I am no longer guessing on water temperatures. It heats water very quickly. It is such a luxury to have this in my kitchen. For as much as I drink tea, I can’t believe I’ve not had an electric kettle sooner.
