drank Rose Marzipan Delight by Teavana
911 tasting notes

This was sitting in my fridge for a couple of days. Oops. Drinking the second steep iced. I can taste more of the purple flower and rose compared to when the tea hot. Might actually be better iced. Not that it does me any good to discover this now as is it discontinued. Boo.

Just out of curiosity, what does lilac taste like?

Auggy

Well, it’s the candied lilac so there’s a sweeter floral taste that is sweeter than the rose (but just as floral). So I more taste the candy part of the candied lilac than the lilac. But yeah, sweet perfume-y flower. Sweeter than the rose and more… spring-ish?

Auggy

And reading that back I don’t think it made any sense. Sorry about that!

You know, I’ve been wondering if it’s possible to blend something yourself that’s vaguely similar. For instance I have a very nice Marzipan rooibos aswell as some rose tea that is too floral for me to drink its own.

Suzi

The candied purple things are actually candied violets :) So yummy! I like to eat ‘em and try to convince the folks at Teavana to fish one out for me from the various teas. :-/ I don’t think they have any teas left with candied violets, tho’.

Auggy

@Suzi: Oops! Violets then! Some purple flower thing. Hehe. I knew I got lavender and lilac mixed up, now I need to add violet to that list!

This sounds delicious! Does the marzipan flavor come across strongly? I love macadamia nuts, and I could see myself eating them out of the dry tea mix. :\

This is discontinued? Really? awwwwwwwww. I really need to try it somehow.

I’m trying to be a better tea logger and actually post semi-regularly again! I’ve let my tea tasting senses become too complacent – it’s time for some focused and attentive tea drinking!

Sometimes my notices for PMs and such have been questionable. Email me at your own risk at aug3zimm at gmail dot com.


1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. Most likely will see if the husband likes it iced.
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!

Not that anyone but me particularly cares, but there it is.
