301 Tasting Notes
I enjoyed this tea a lot. I wish that the oolong flavor would be a bit more prominent, but the orange with a bit of spice was very pleasant. As my cup cooled down it was just as tasty, but the orange became the primary flavor. I definitely prefer this hot, but am thankful that it doesn’t become a terrible tea experience if it cools!
I was pleasantly surprised by this tea. I wasn’t really expecting a whole lot, and some vanilla flavors taste incredibly fake. Not so, here. When it is hot the scent wafts up and it smells absolutely delightful! Upon first sip, the vanilla is very rich and pleasant and plays better with the green tea taste than I could have ever anticipated. Definitely tastes like dessert in a cup!
I love this kettle, though it is my first one. Before this I was using the stove or hot water from my Keurig for tea. Once I realized how much better certain teas were with more precise water temps, and that I was breaking my Keurig with 5-8x daily use, I found this. Got it 20% off at Bed Bath and Beyond with one of those coupons, and it is my most used and loved appliance. I have had it 8-9 months and it is still going strong. Should it pass for some reason, I will absolutely be repurchasing.
This is hands down the best tea Teavana sells, in my opinion. The citrus, lavender, and sage flavors are all equally present and they balance each other very nicely. I like to add just a hint of sweetener and ice it. The only issue I have is that I go through it super fast and don’t like paying any of Teavana’s jacked up prices, so I must wait for it to be on sale before I get more!
