drank 9 Treasures by Teavana
35 tasting notes

This is another discontinued tea I’ve been hoarding my last canister of – darn Teavana and their sneaky discontinuing ways. :p

In the tin and in the cup, this one has a nice fruity scent – kind of pineapple-y. While the tuo cha cakes are kind of a pain to break up, I prefer to have a bit of the pu-erh taste in there with the other flavors. The fruit flavor in this is pleasant, but it doesn’t overpower the green tea. I usually do a heaping teaspoon for 8oz, and add a little honey. Yummy!

I adore Nine Treasures as well. Didn’t know it was being discontinued. :( Will have to find a good substitute.

Susan- Sadly they discontinued it in ’09, along with another favorite of mine, Ginger Peach Apricot. :(

The link below is from their blog and lists what they discontinued in ‘09 and some suggested alternatives, but all it says for an alternate is “New Tea coming”, and they don’t seem to have updated their suggestions unfortunately.

Bio

I hate coffee and I love teas of all stripes (including herbal/tisanes)! My tea stash is getting out of control, so I’m trying to work through it – current count is 152+ flavors/types of tea/tisanes, bagged and loose. Woo!

My ratings:
0-10: Undrinkable. Probably threw the container away in a fit of rage.

10-25: Urgh. Gross. I need to give it away as it is taking up valuable tea cupboard space.

25-40: Uhh…why do I have this? May attempt foisting it onto my boyfriend.

40-55: Kinda funky, might drink it if I’m feeling under the weather and find it helpful, but that’s about it.

55-70: Ok, no great shakes, but I’ll drink it without complaint. I probably wouldn’t buy it again though.

70-85: If I come it across it and I’m in the mood, I’ll probably repurchase it.

85-100: Awesome! I will take extra time to find this again, and cry bitterly if it has been discontinued.
