277 Tasting Notes

This tea is tasty but I will never purchase it again. It is ridiculously overpriced given what you get, and other oolongs from other brands are just as tasty.

This flavor is very mild, floral, and green. It holds up to many steepings, as most oolongs of this kind do, my main gripe is that it just isn’t that special considering the price.

drank Lavender Dreams by Teavana

After learning how to best brew it, I am a big fan of this tea. It is VERY floral – it is like drinking straight flowers. So if that isn’t for you, then steer clear! I’ve found this does not taste good if oversteeped, and actually is most balance when I stick to 2 minutes of steep time. I had never had lavender tea before this and now I plan to seek out others. The only problem I had was that I was introduced to candied violets. My cup has never seen the candied violet because I admit, when I see them I pick them out and just eat them straight. I am now on the hunt for candied violets that aren’t an arm and a leg!!

drank Rooibos Chai by Teavana
277 tasting notes

Chai is my favorite to drink in the cooler weather, and I love having a caffeine free version. I got a lot of this during one of the 75% off sales, and sort of wish I hadn’t. It is delicious, but I wish the spices were a bit stronger. I have to use more tea than I normally would to make a cup that has flavor even after I add almond milk.

I was shocked how much I love this tea. I prefer to steep it for 10-15 minutes, because then it takes on this very sweet, very spicy, “red hot” candy kind of flavor. From there I usually drink it plain, or with a bit of milk, as a dessert tea.

Boiling 8 min or more

drank Mango Melange by Adagio Teas

I enjoy this one very much (iced particularly), though it is slightly more bland than the berry herbals. I prefer being hit in the face a bit more with these, as I only drink them when I am looking for a healthier, less sweet, juice replacement.

drank Sour Apple by Adagio Teas

This was tasty but kind of mild without any kind of sweetener to give it some depth. I definitely expected a more sour punch to it, given the name, and was somewhat disappointed in it.

drank Dewy Cherry by Adagio Teas

I really enjoyed this tea iced, though I was surprised at how sweet it was. Definitely not a sour cherry flavor, which is fine, but anyone looking for that be warned! I personally prefer a more sour, tart flavor from these kinds of herbal teas.

I really enjoyed this tea for a before-bed dessert-y cup. It is a bit sweet, the flavor of the white tea comes through as well as the fruitiness.

drank Mocha Nut Mate by Adagio Teas

I really enjoyed this tea. It has a definite chocolate flavor, and a smokiness that does resemble coffee enough to really bring out the mocha aspect. I could taste the toastiness of the nut too.

I am a 29 year old return-to-college student working on my certification in Early Childhood Ed, who discovered the (incredibly vast) world of tea about 3 years ago. In that time, I have learned so much, and am hoping to learn even more by joining the steepster community.

In my non-tea times, I am usually watching netflix while writing lesson plans, cuddling my two kitties, or trying to find new things to do in a town that is sometimes a bit limited!
