Recent Tasting Notes
I really, really dislike this tea.
The smell and taste remind me of chemicals. Sort of like the smell of the plastic sandals at Walmart.
When I concentrate I can taste chocolate, coconut and maybe a bit of a mocha flavour….but the chemical taste sticks out way too much to me
I took a few sips then dumped it down the sink. I’m really not having much luck with Teavana. I don’t know what I’m going to do with the remaining 45g or whatever I have…
Flavors: Artificial, Chocolate, Coconut, Mocha
Brewed this as an iced tea. It is sweet and tart. It is quite tasty. I brewed it hot then poured it over ice. It melted all the ice but it is still good. This is a combination of their Blueberry Bliss rooibos and Pineapple Kona Pop herbal teas. I was at Teavana yesterday and it looked interesting when I saw the blend in the store. I was there primarily to buy some more of their liquid rock sugar but I saw this blend and thought it would be a good iced tea. It is.
This is one of my all time favorite teas. I have been making it for a few years now and it continues to be at the top of my list. For some reason, I really enjoy this tea come the fall. It has a wonderful spice to it that perfectly compliments crisp autumn mornings. A combination of apple, cinnamon, ginger, cardamon and clove are what stand out to me the most. It may just be placebo effect but I like to think this tea gives me a jolt of energy and focus when I need it. Would highly recommend.
Flavors: Apple, Cardamon, Cinnamon, Clove, Ginger
I found that I had to brew this tea extra strong to get a full flavor out of it, as I have found with most of the teavana teas I’ve tried. When I brewed it according to the directions, it was a light pink color and although the flavored were there, they were very light. After I doubled the amount of tea it was much more enjoyable. I could drink it everyday. It comes out a bright red color and many different notes are tasted in the tea this way. I love it!
I’m very open minded when it comes to food and drink. I ordered this because it was on sale and I was ultra curious.
The smell was not quite what I expected. It really made me go “Heh?” I’ve smelled it quite a few times and I still can’t make up my mind on how I feel about it.
So I brewed it. I iced it and took it in my giant travel mug. Tasted it. Not BAD, but not good either. I added hot sauce because I wanted it savoury. Drinkable but still not yum.
I tried again the next time, this time hot. The first thing I picked up on hot was cinnamon. Cinnamon? Really? And I got the sweetness of the raisins. I dumped it down the sink. I have too many nice teas to waste my time drinking something I’m not in love with.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Raisins
Nothing about this tea says ‘S’mores’ to me. If I didn’t know what it was supposed to be, I’d say it trying for a café mocha sort of flavour. The chicory is pretty noticeable, especially as the tea cools. It’s like an earthy chocolate, with the small hint of spice. You get a sweet marshmallow/vanilla note at the end. The oolong and maté are not there (looking at the ingredient list again, I’m not surprised), and it leaves a heavy feeling in the mouth. It’s not the worst thing, but it’s also not that good. The chicory probably ruined it for me. It would likely taste much better as a latté.
Flavors: Chocolate, Earth
I don’t know how long I’ve had this sample. That’s what I get for not logging samples into the spreadsheet, sigh. Latte again this morning as I thought all the spices in here would be to much for me. I think this turned out wonderful. I was worried. I am having to use tea bags as my tea collection isn’t fully unpacked and I don’t know where the rest of my gear is yet. The steeped cup of this with 2tsp of the tea didn’t look all that dark and I was worried the addition of a little over a cup of milk would drown everything out. It turned out quite pleasant! The main flavor I am getting is cinnamon but there is something else hanging out with it that I can’t quite pick out, maybe the cardamom or the pepper? I don’t get any of the pineapple or papaya. Overall, I think this would be great for lattes in the near fall.
I remember getting this tea and it smelt lovely, however when I went to try it at home I was thoroughly disappointed. It taste like hot fruit punch—YUCK. There is too much artificial flavouring in it and I’m not a big fan, however it actually makes a lovely ice tea! I wouldn’t recommend it as a hot tea, but I can deal with it iced. I won’t be buying this again.
Flavors: Artificial, Cinnamon, Citrus, Grapes
So I had passed by Teavana the other day and couldn’t help but take a peek and I noticed that this tea was on sale. It was $10 for 5oz! Sounds like a deal to me! I don’t drink many white teas because I am more of a black tea/oolong drinker, but I’m always looking to try new teas. When I smelt this tea I could instantly smell the grape, but also the delicious scent of jasmine and when I sipped it, it tasted just like that. This tea is very mellow and has a strange grape taste, that I haven’t tried in many teas, followed by a wonderful jasmine flavour. I wasn’t a huge fan of the grape flavour, however it wasn’t too bad, but I probably wouldn’t buy it again.
Flavors: Floral, Grapes
Masala Chai has been one of my favorite chais for a while, I nomally get it from Rishi tea, but I was in Teavana the other day and thought I would try theirs. I enjoyed it This one does not have as much of the spice that I am use too but I did enjoy the ginger, it came out more in the Teavana version.
I perfer all teas iced, so this recipe was: 8.33 weighed ounces of hot water 3tbs of tea blend for 4 mins and 8.33 weighed ounces of iced.
Flavors: Cinnamon, Ginger, Pepper
I still have this sample from two??? years ago that I never got around to trying until now. I was going to try measuring it out into a one cup portion, but the fruit chunks were huge and it’s already got rock sugar mixed in, so I just followed the instructions and dumped the whole package into my gravity steeper.
It’s very sweet (like, on par with their in-store samples kind of sweet), and has a kind of bubble gum-y fruit punch taste. It’s bright pink, which I think is cute, and sweet enough that the hibiscus doesn’t bother me. It’s supposed to be a white tea/herbal infusion blend, but I couldn’t taste any of the white tea at all.
I wouldn’t ever buy this myself, but I didn’t mind drinking it. My brother hates all my teas, but he liked this…probably because it’s closer in taste to something from a juice box than it is to tea.
I was skeptical. As a s’more lover, I’ve tried many “s’more” flavoured products. How many have actually captured the essence of s’more? NONE.
But at this moment I sit at my computer, eating granola and sipping S’more Oolong. Well done, Teavana. I taste the chocolate, and some how, almost by magic, I taste graham cracker. This feels like the perfect tea as we start rolling into fall. It’s warm and toasty tasting. Reminds me of sitting out by the fire.
A note on the steep time, I tasted it after 3 minutes and it seemed a bit weak so I left the bag in while I drank it.
That being said, I enjoy it – especially for the current price -, but I won’t restock it.
Flavors: Chocolate, Creamy, Graham Cracker, Spices
I’ll save you all the disappointment. Tastes like hibiscus. And it is nearly identical to Davidstea’s Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait. I expected a more sophisticated taste since it’s a delicate white tea base, and David’s is straight up fruit.
I’m thinking a splash of vanilla soy milk might make it nicer, or maybe as a latte… Or I say screw it, brew it all as a great big jug of iced tea and let the husband have at it.
I won’t rate this low because I’m only disappointed that it didn’t have a more complexed and unique flavour – my own fault. And for the price that I paid I should just shut up and drink my tea.
Flavors: Cream, Hibiscus, Strawberry
So, I recently stopped by Teavana the other day and saw that they had this tea half off and knowing that this is the most expensive and unique tea they had, being a yellow tea, I had been waiting to give it a try! At first, this tea tastes closer to a Yunnan to me with a buttery and subtley sweet taste. I tried a second steeping, adding some of teavanas German rock salt, and noticed that the honey flavor was starting to show more. I tried steeping it a second time and noticed a more vegetal taste, but still with a hint of honey. Having never tried a yellow tea before I was pleasantly surprised! The price is a little steep for me, but I would definitely try it again if it were on sale. For now, I have a good 4oz to enjoy!
Flavors: Honey, Sweet, Vegetal
