I completely forgot about the teas I got at Argo after Christmas. Oops. Nothing really screams “this is for winter only!” about any of them so since I was in the mood for a green, I chose this over the herbal one I’ve yet to try.
And I see why. This is not for me. For some reason I really really cannot do almond flavor in anything but black tea. Something just doesn’t taste right to me in white/green teas. I’m getting it in this and I really don’t like it with the orange and cinnamon. Without that almond taste, this reminds me of a cookie.
If anyone wants this, let me know, because I don’t think I’ll even be able to finish this cup. And if you can do almond flavoring, this has to be a really excellent cup of tea. Boo, taste buds.
Just got home from nightfloat. This is day 2! I always have this strange boost of energy around 7am hence the tea drinking. I figure I will become sleepy again. I steeped this for a shorter time because I wanted to try to avoid the bitterness. Again, the crushed up leaves don’t appeal to me.
Sip… am I drinking straight up hot water? This is a tea that I can’t get right. I drank this down so I have none left. I am thankful for that for sure! Now I can open up and try another tea!
This tea is bitter today. I can’t wait til I’m done with this tea. Blah…
Today was my last day of ICU. I’m a little sad about it because I enjoyed it. The nurses and attendings are all so awesome. My fellow resident and I went out to eat then she drove me home. I came home craving some tea and settled for this. Bad decision. I will make a different tea later. blah!
I’m just glad I only have enough left for one tea.
I received this one in a swap (so sorry I mixed in with my box and forgot to note who it was from)!! Thank you regardless!
This is quite nice :)
The Orange and Vanilla are lovely together. The hint of cinnamon goes a long way and the almond helps with the nutty-sweetness and overall smooth factor paired with the vanilla. The green tea base it’s grassy and it’s mellower in green-tea flavor but everything works very well together and I can see myself enjoying this most any time of day!
So on my flight schedule yesterday was Guatemala City to Houston. Houston to Chicago. Chicago back to Akron/Canton. Two hour layover at O’Hare and I need something to eat. Before I settled on the golden arches I found Argo. I love the concept of this place and wish there were more places like it in Ohio. So I order the English Breakfast and the Mate poached turkey sandwich. The tea is not bad your basic English Breakfast tea. Malty and a little bit of that Keemun kick. The sandwich though fabulous! I liked it better than the tea.
I had been wanting another one of these bottles for storing cold brewed tea, so I grabbed this one at Fresh Market…I hadn’t seen it before so even better.
I haven’t liked rooibos when I cold brew it, but I like this…probably because it’s sweetened. It’s got a good amount of pomegranate juice in it, because it looks more like juice than tea. It’s a nice refreshing flavor.
I think they are kind of overpriced to buy regularly at $2.39 but now I can keep 2 bottles at home and 1 at my boyfriend’s place and have cold brewed tea ready all the time. It’s also not bad if you really want tea and you’re out somewhere without any…like me.
Thanks to oOTeaOo for a sample of this one. Flavored greens can be tricky. A lot of time they can overwhelm the tea so I wonder if they are made for people that don’t really like green tea. I was worried this one would be too sweet but it isn’t. The cinnamon and orange flavorings both seem to be very subtle which is nice. Something about this combination always seems to remind me of the holidays.
This seems to be a lighter Chinese green although I’m not sure which one. I feel like the cinnamon is quite predominate here especially in the finish. That isn’t really a problem for me because I like cinnamon. Although I liked I am not sure I would buy this for myself. Now I wonder if I can find a green chai I would like?
Well, it looks like Argo sells loose leaf too, but I had a RTD from them, the Carolina Honey. Got it at the local Safeway (Von’s).
Although I am not a fan of honey, I am starting to appreciate it’s subtle sweetness in my teas, and this one just confirmed it. The tea wasn’t particularly impressive, and I could not detect any lemon. Wasn’t bad for a RTD, better than Lipton or Snapple that’s for sure! And a nice glass bottle that I think I can reuse for a while. I might try some of the other ones, there was a RTD Mojito one and a green.
I am so freaking tired! I don’t know what came over me this afternoon. I was just chugging along fine, and then out of nowhere, bam!, utter exhaustion. I really want to go climb into bed right now, but that is not really an option. Oolong seems to have done nothing for me, so I thought I would give this roasted maté a go.
Man, I used to really love this. Way back in the day before I was really a tea drinker, I loved drinking this. Now it’s not really my style anymore. It’s kinda sad, actually! Adding to the fact that it’s pretty old and I feel like it’s lost some of the almondy chocolatey flavor I remember and now it kind of tastes like toasted cardboard (with the almondy chocolatey flavors lurking underneath). Man this is totally not working because I am too apathetic to drink this cup. Oh well, hope I’m not getting sick.
(estimated guess on temp and time…still a gnoob ;P)
Bought this to try something new…my first “wow, I have never heard of this varietal” tea. When I steep it, the smell reminds me of some shwag weed. Taste is a bit woody, but not overpowering. Not really getting the sweetness the other reviewer talked about, but I don’t think I made this very strong. Overall, not bad, but not amazing. I would give this varietal another try, but not this company.
Thanks Amanda for this one, too!
Sort of reminds me of a Tea Forte Mix of flavors (but at least it doesn’t have Hibiscus!)
Smells like cinnamon, roasted almonds, a bit of soy sauce…
tastes like roasted almonds with a bit of soy sauce, a bit of spice but not over the top or enough to identify as cinnamon (maybe a little bit in the aftertaste), and cocoa powder, but I can barely taste the “zest”. Having said that – this isn’t too shabby! I can see myself drinking it once in a blue moon…why not.
E for Effort!
This is interesting. I didn’t like it at first because it tasted too much like bad apple juice, which I think was just the spices and the apple.
But as it cooled, or as I drank it, I really started to enjoy it. It’s different. I just don’t think you can tell that it’s white tea at all because so much is going on.
This was another RTD that I picked up from Safeway the other day, since I didn’t hate the mojitea I figured I’d be safe with another try from Argo. I like this one much better than the mojitea … LOTS of bits of ginger in it and I like that. I taste the touch of lemon and it offsets the ginger flavor a bit, which is nice, but I feel like the green tea gets a little lost in this RTD, but fortunately, it isn’t too sickeningly sweet so that’s a plus. I could definitely drink this one again.
Special thanks to Amanda for this one!
I passed my 5,000th Tasting Note!
This is actually my 5,002nd Tasting Note!
So…I think it’s time for me to give away some tea! If you would like to throw your name into the hat for a mystery box please leave a comment on this post! Tomorrow I will choose ONE person to start gathering teas for and in February I will mail a box out to the winner! It will be an assortment of teas, companies, sample sizes from my stash!
My thoughts on this tea…
It smells like a cross between crust, mushrooms, apples, and pepper, and popcorn.
It’s a yellowy color and the taste is very different from other apple whites I have tried.
The Pink Peppercorns threw me for a loop at first but I got used to them. The apple is toned down by the peppercorns but still present. I can tell there are spices at the begging and end of the sip…they are mellower.
This is ok. Ballsy mix of flavors here and I appreciate that! Not my fave but not bad either :) So glad I was able to try it!!!
