142 Tasting Notes
I am a really big fan of this tea! It is mild but doesn’t lack in flavor. It has a definite tropical pull but the rose is present and keeps things a bit unexpected. I will absolutely be buying this once my tin from the subscription runs out!
I really enjoyed this, but didn’t think it was necessarily worth the steep price. It held up to many steepings, and I had to quit well before it seemed to. But it just tasted like a standard oolong that has grassier, greener notes than some. Tasty, but not repurchasing considering the price.
I really enjoyed this tea – it definitely has a sweet and floral scent and taste that I enjoy from this kind of oolong. However, it can’t receive a perfect rating from me because I have enjoyed similar teas that I found to be a bit higher quality for the same price. That said, I do wholeheartedly recommend giving it a try – very enjoyable!
I very surprised at how much I enjoyed this pairing. To me, rooibos is more of a sweet tea that goes with foodier, sweeter flavors. The jasmine is very floral and gives you the perfumey aftertaste but plays remarkably well with the jasmine. A solid option for those who like jasmine scented green teas and such but want to avoid caffeine. However, I do prefer this flavor in a green.
I love this blend, and love that Teavana sends a sample with each order. I don’t love that it is so spiked with sugar! If they must sugar it, half of what they currently use would be sufficient. That said, I enjoy the combo! I love cinnamon, and that is the primary spice here.
