So… Weight to go… Really? hahaha… Well, the ingredients sounded interesting, regardless of silly names or not.

This tea smell delicious. It really does. It has a very candy like berry/mint thing going on that seems to be an addictive scent to sniff… Though, I do have to agree with teatoad that it is remarkably similar to the smell of Trident Strawberry gum. Almost exactly… Wow… Anyways… The tea base is pu-erh, though I see very few tea leaves in relationship to the fruit pieces (apple squares, strawberries…). I can’t see any spearmint, but I can unmistakably smell it.

Once again with Teavana’s teas I was worried about the fruit to tea ration when steeping, so I used 2 heaping teaspoons for my 12oz cup. It smelled great while steeping. The spearmint became a bit stronger in the scent and the fruit a bit less candy like.

The tea itself was a pretty pinkish color. It tasted pretty much exactly what it smelled like. I got absolutely no pu-erh… None… Even after exaggerating the amount of tea. I still got Strawberry Trident. I am not sure that this is what I want in a tea.

I have a full 2oz of this one (the least I could purchase online). I think that I will eventually drink through it, but surely won’t purchase again. I will try it iced to see if it works any better…

On a side note…

Today is the Harvard-Yale football game! My whole time at Yale I only went to one of these games, and we lost. : ( I lost track of the scores, but apparently Harvard has beat Yale for 5 consecutive years… That is not good news… Hopefully this year Yale will win!! Go Yale! : )

Teavana always has bad names! I never feel that their names actually convey what the flavor is. Slimfull? Weight to go? Creme Brulee? I have no idea what they’re talking about…

Yeah… More of a marketing ploy than an actual attempt to portray what to expect of tea in terms of taste. But, I have liked enough of their teas that I can’t complain too much…. hahaha….
Also, if tea actually made you loose a significant amount of weight, with the amount that I drink that I might have disappeared by now! ; )

LOL Me too on the weight loss thing! Oh yes, marketing gone bad! I normally think of them by flavor/smell instead of their actual names.

Ninavampi

Good approach Tamm!

Wow… Just noticed an extra that in my last response… Ooops! Glad that it still made sense!

Tamm

You know what? I didn’t even read both of them! I think my brain skipped the extra one… O.o

Bio

I love tea and have since I was a little girl. Once I could buy my own tea, I began to explore and learn about the extensive and delicious world of tea!

Also, love my French Bulldog (named Sencha…) and my tea oblivious boyfriend. I enjoy ice skating (I am a part time coach), reading, writing, baking, running, and lots of sweets!

My favorite teas tend to be on the sweeter side. Both flavored and plain teas are great to me. Currently going through a flavored tea phase. Enjoying it greatly! : )
