24 Tasting Notes

75

Went to the Padres game last night ( 5-0, Suck it Giants!) and visited the concession stand. Sure, I could’ve paid $10 for a $2 Coors light, but why when I saw this little guy? It has that nice “Wow” factor when activating the Gizmo that drops the tea into the purified water and mixing it all together, and the flavour wasn’t half bad. got a sour pomegranate flavour and not much else. Says white tea on the label and I’m sure it’s in there somewhere, but the fruit flavour os very strong. All in all it quenched my thirst at the ball game and i got a a new iced tea experience out of it.

Found a box of this for 3 bucks whilst out shopping with the missus at big lots. Figured for 3 bucks “don’t expect much, just enjoy a bagged white tea on a hot day”.. I actually really like this. It’s got great flavour, not too bitter or sweet; I’d say mild but that doesn’t do it either as the taste is very present.
All in all its a steal and I’ll probably go back for the rest of their supply just to fill up a tin and enjoy every now and then, especially on hot days, which seem to be every day here in San Diego.

Nice iced tea. Had the pre-brewed bottled version. It wasn’t bad at all.

This is a delicious blend. I’m not terribly keen on chai tea or blend even, but this hits the mark on both for me. A nice spicy chai. Add a splash of milk and and a little honey, and oh yeah, I’m there!

This oolong is brilliant! It really does inspire thoughts of camping fireside drinking a nice hot tea after a long chilly hike. For me, teas that can bring back specific memories are invaluable.
This tea is very fragrant, has a toasty, roasted, woodsy scent. The taste isn’t bland, but not as strong; still satisfying. An all around delicious tea!

I love teavana. Even though that puts me in the minority but can’t help it. I’ll be looking to get me a cup of this next time I am at the mall to try it out myself.

Same here. I don’t particularly care for the brand label,it’s the tea leaf inside that I care about what it tastes like to me, if Teavana sells a tea that I like, then I I will definitely buy it. I am sure that I got the better end of our last swap, so if you want I can send you a small sample of mine.

Received this and a few other goodies for Father’s Day.

Opening the 4oz bag immediately filled the room with the titular caramel toffee aroma. I just HAD to try a cup right then and there! The pu-erh base tasted earthy, musty, and well…dirty, but I dove right in; baited by the powerful English toffee notes, your humble narrator’s Achilles heel.

I felt the base just wasn’t good enough for the flavour added by the toffee pieces and is the main reason for a lower rating on a recommended tea. The addition of a splash of milk and a tsp sugar help tremendously. I don’t feel it lives up to the name of “dessert in a cup” but it definitely smells like it. I enjoyed it and will have no problem getting through 4oz, but it could’ve been so much better.

Got as a free sample with my Father’s Day gift teapot.

Upon opening the bag you are instantly smacked with a lemon citrus aroma wafting in your face; it’s pleasant. The brew is a glowing red as the lemon scent continues to fill the room. The taste, though not living up to the expectation built up based on the smell, is also pleasant; though the typical chai flavours are subtle. So subtle in fact it’s like pulling teeth to get the to reveal themselves, but they’re there.

Now I rarely do this, but after half a cup of unimpressive tea I opted to add milk and sugar; true chai fashion. Night and day difference. The lemongrass flavours burst forth and the chai spices jump out at you! I enjoyed this tea so much more with this addition.

The missus isn’t a fan of tea, but she did enjoy the smell of this one!

Flavors: Anise, Cinnamon, Cloves, Lemongrass

I’ve had nothing but good experiences from enjoyingtea.com. Not a big fan of chai tea myself but very interesting note from you on this tea.

ahhh… The PBR of the tea world.

Nothing complex, compelling, or even interesting to this tea. It’s brews your basic crowd-pleasing iced tea. It suits my needs by taking the place of my after-work beer as I try to get healthier, and at $4/8ounces you cant go wrong as it doesn’t try to be anything it’s not…

This is brilliant. Light notes of honey and sweet chocolate. I’ll definitely be ordering more when I’m out.
