17 Tasting Notes

Not normally a white tea person, but this hit the spot this morning. It was a little bitter because I left the bag in way too long, but the sweetness of the peach balanced it out well; it ended up being robust enough for my second morning cup without kicking me in the face. Smells amazing too, and both smell & flavor is not obnoxiously peachy but definitely there. Used 1 Splenda & boiling water.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more

Mmm, this tea is always tasty. Such nice fruity notes but still definitely black. Yum yum yum. I especially like it because it never seems to get too bitter even when I forget to take the bag out (which I almost always do). Used a Splenda & boiling water.

This tea is seriously like crack. It’s SO GOOD. Picked it up when in Nassau last week and now I have no idea what I’ll do when I polish off the ten bags in the box! A little agave nectar is the perfect compliment to the sweet and surprisingly fresh taste of the coconut in this tea. I’ve been able to make a big ol’ mugful on my way out the door to work and not have to worry about oversteeping at all. I ADORE this tea!

I just returned from a cruise and purchased this tea. I LOVE it! Have you found it online? I’d love to order more. World Market doesn’t have it.

They don’t sell this online yet — their website says they may be opening an online store soon. Here is hoping these are in it!!

drank Monkey-Picked Oolong by Teavana
17 tasting notes

Prepared with some raw sugar and boiling water, I must say that considering the extravagant price tag I’m not overly impressed. It’s not bad, but there’s nothing overly remarkable either. It’s smooth and green-tasting. I just really don’t care for green teas is what it comes down to, I suppose.

Boiling

You’re not supposed to sweeten oolong…

Angela

Well see, I didn’t know that. =) Honestly, the sugar was what made it palatable to me. I’ll probably try another cup (and this time I’ll leave out the sweetener!) but I don’t see this being a favorite of mine either way.

Debbie

If you’re used to drinking flavored teas, oolong is probably not for you. The natural flavors of oolongs are very subtle and could be floral, buttery, creamy, etc.

Though I honestly have not been impressed with Teavana’s oolongs. They lack a lot of the layered flavor notes I come to expect from oolongs. Not to mention they are overpriced as heck.

I’m not usually a fan of not-black teas but this is seriously tasty. A bit of agave nectar seals the deal! It’s lovely, light, and sweet without being overwhelmingly so. This would be a great before-bed tea! I wish it was a little punchier, but no one’s perfect. =)

Got two bags when I bought some lotion and was pleasantly surprised! Light but full in flavor, just ensure you don’t steep too long or it gets bitter fast. Pleasant with some milk! Yum!

I really wanted to like this tea… My sister bought me some. I’m a huge earl grey fan, but for my taste the raspberries were overpowering and it reminded me of the smell of a Bath & Body Works lotion. It could have been worse, for sure, but I wouldn’t buy another tin.

A nice enough tea. Good for an afternoon pick-me-up, it has a great aroma too, very zen. For a bagged chai it does the trick.
