This was my first yellow tea and I really loved it. I usually blend this with green teas to get that extra buttery taste, but on it’s own it has an almost soba-butteriness to it. I drink a lot of it at work and will be sad when it leaves.

One of my favorite green teas. It’s lite and sweet and has a very simple misty taste. It really does taste like a misty morning on a high mountain. If you’re not a fan of the more vegital and earthy green teas this one would be good to try.

Flavors: Mineral, Plants

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 1 min, 15 sec 3 tsp 14 OZ / 414 ML

Cold brew. Sipdown.

This is much better than the hot brew I made last night! Still slightly disappointed that the woodsy rooibos taste was overshadowing the tart and juicy blueberries though. Sweetened with a touch of agave and it’s so much better! A nice refreshing drink now that SoCal is starting to heat up again.
Had a very nice and pink colour which I loved! It’s in the fridge right now in my Coronado cup thing which I honestly didn’t think I’d actually use.
Once again, thank you MissB for sending me some of this!

I couldn’t resist, I picked this up with my Starbucks reward again. I feel like after a week of black teas, this was a welcome reminder of the fact that I do really prefer lighter softer teas.

I had this one to go as it’s one I’ve been meaning to try. While my hopes were at a medium-ish level for this I was still disappointed. It seemed rather weak to me. I really did not get a lot of chocolate, no heat, and just a muddy citrus flavor. The cup was drinkable in that “it’s freezing today so I really don’t care much as long as it is warm” kind of way.
However I had a great experience in store today which is always nice considering their reputation.

Not a long review, as I just worked my 3rd 12 hour day in a row, but I took the “leaves” from last night and added a teaspoon of Adagio Vanilla Rooibos which I really dislike on its own. Together, the blend is really nice, in fact, better than I was expecting. Really speaks to this blend’s mixing capabilities.

drank Precious White Peach by Teavana
348 tasting notes

I had this one after dinner because I didn’t want something too heavily caffeinated so late in the day. Also, I guess today was just a fruity tea kind of day. Anyway, I let the water cool down quite a bit to avoid bitterness, and it worked! I’m definitely getting a strong peach flavor, but it kind of tastes like what I imagine a dried peach would taste like (like dried mango, but peach). As is Teavana’s style, this tea is on the verge of being too perfume-y, but dialed back just enough that I can actually enjoy it. I don’t think this one will be a repurchase, but I will definitely enjoy what I have left!

So it’s past 6pm and that’s it with the caffeine for the day! Only managed to drink two cups of tea. Dang :/
Well, caffeinated tea, that is!

Sticking strictly to caffeine-free teas now and I got this from the ever so wonderful MissB!
I realized pretty recently that I enjoy blueberry teas, whether it’s in a black/fruit blend, or a rooibos blend like this.
Dude. Blueberries are SO FREAKIN GOOD OKAY JUST GIVE ME ALL THE BLUEBERRIES.

Hmm.. this is an okay tea. There’s a buttload of blueberries so this was way more tart than I would have liked. And the rooibos gave a bit more of a woodsy flavour, instead of enhancing the tart blueberries. I’ve definitely had some rooibos with a more refreshing taste so maybe that would have worked better with this blend.
A nice tea! I just wasn’t expecting it to taste a bit heavy, I was expecting a bit more of a bounce.
I’ll be putting this into my mason jar to leave it to brew overnight in the fridge :)

This tea tastes like cake. Angel food cake to be exact. It does smell horrendously sweet though, which I had to get past at first. I actually had to leave the room while it was steeping because the smell was just too much for me!

But once I got past the smell, which mellows considerably once the tea is steeped, I did really enjoy this taste. It’s definitely a sometimes tea though, rather than one I would drink often. I can see how this could cure a sweet tooth in the evening, because seriously… cake.

Okay. This tea is a bit strange at first, but you get used to it after a while. As some other tasting notes mentioned, some ingredients just don’t go well together. By the way, I just got a cup of iced youthberry at Teavana, so I did not make this.
At the end of the day, this tea isn’t special, but it’s good enough to recommend.

A friend is visiting and so I decided to use this opportunity to sip on a pretty blooming tea while we study. This way, I don’t need to drink a whole pot of tea on my own and we have something nice to look at as opposed to just our computer screens and textbooks.

As for the tea, it is actually surprisingly good. I always expect blooming teas to lack in flavor but this has a mellow peach taste atop a smooth white base.
