296 Tasting Notes
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!
I think this is one of Teavana’s more standout blends. However, be warned, to enjoy it like I do you have to be really into basil. Basil is the primary flavor here, which I like, because it is sweet but different compared to most other teas. I like it best chilled, and it is one of my favorite iced teas in the summer because it is so herbal and refreshing. I bought a ton of it at the last 75% off sale, and would repurchase if it were on sale again.
This is a great iced tea! I enjoy it hot as well, but I think the sourness and tang from the orange really lends it to being a particularly refreshing iced tea in the summertime. It isn’t so special I would buy it full price, but if it were on sale I would repurchase.
This is an enjoyable, mostly fruity tea. I wish I tasted more rose, and I definitely wish I tasted any oolong, because I think it could have been really fabulous if it were more balanced. Alas, it is not, and I will finish up what I have and enjoy it, but probably not get it again.
This makes a pretty tasty iced tea, but isn’t super special. Like all of my other Teavana tea, I got it during a 75% off sale, which is the only thing that really makes this one worth it. It was dirt cheap, but not particularly special. I will enjoy using it up, and perhaps pick it up again if it is on sale again at a later date.
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.
