drank Strawberry Blush Rosé by Teavana
31 tasting notes

Waitwaitwait, there’s oolong in here?! All I can see are huge fruit chunks. It smells great, steeps a pretty pink, but this to me is purely a fruit infusion. If I want tea, I want it to contain mostly TEA. It’s ok for a cold, afternoon drink. But to me, it’s basically like watered down fruit juice. Another one I got as a gift and wouldn’t buy for myself.

drank Blackberry Mojito by Teavana
31 tasting notes

This was one of the first teas I ever got from Teavana as a gift. It was before I realized that teas don’t have to always be hot (haha!). I hated this tea at first, but once I realized it was better iced, it became a bit more enjoyable. Still, it is really tart, almost sour. I’m also not a fan of hibiscus so that adds to my initial dislike. It’s not that I hate this tea… I just probably wouldn’t buy it myself.

drank Wild Orange Blossom by Teavana
14 tasting notes

Was kind of disappointed when I saw it had rose hips in it, since teAvana always overdoes it on the Rosehups but it had a nice flavor. I got it in a sampler set but don’t think I would purchase separately because it’s quite expensive and disappears pretty quickly. Plus you don’t get many resteeps. First time tastes best, second time is meh, and forget about a third time.

Flavors: Orange, Rosehips

drank Pumpkin Spice Brulee by Teavana
32 tasting notes

Yuck. The pumpkin spice is very evident in both the aroma and flavour of this tea, but nonetheless this was not a fun cup to drink. I’m used to liking most pumpkin-flavoured things, so this tea was somewhat of an impulse buy. However, I think I’ll stick to pumpkin spice lattes, scones, muffins, etc. in the future. Speaking of lattes, I think I need to prepare the remainder of this tea with milk each time.

Flavors: Pumpkin, Spices

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 3 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

This tastes like water with the vaguest hint of buttered green beans. Even oversteeping, there’s not much to this tea. I’ll stick with the Japanese greens.

It seems drastic to disregard all Chinese green tea based on something you got at Teavana ):

Hoálatha

Perhaps, but what I’ve had of other Chinese greens I haven’t been wild about either. I realize I’m still pretty new to my explorations, so I’ll try to keep a more open mind. :-)

Lol I sent you some bi luo chun with the a&p sample so maybe you’ll be pleasantly surprised if interesting is what you’re missing, :P

drank Citrus Lavender Sage by Teavana
191 tasting notes

Today’s cold brew. Started it this morning grandpa style and I was able to taste flavors within 10 min. This herbal always is citrus, then lavender, then sage. Like each flavor is entirely separate from the next.

So 4 hours- I think I should have stired before drinking. Top was overly sweet with pineapple and citrus. Middle was a bit of a mix and the bottom was overly herby and sage. Separate tastes ended up making an odd cold brew. I’m going to add more water and see what I get.

I think I prefer this hot or cut with something else. I’m finding it a bit overwhelming by itself.

Edit: 2nd steep – Much lighter, citrus and lavender. The sage is missing. Pretty sure I drank it during the last steep.

Flavors: Citrus, Herbs, Lavender, Pineapple, Sage, Sweet

drank Chocolate Chai by Teavana

First time I tried it, it tasted like tootsie rolls. I’m not normally a fan of the candy but I kind of liked it. However the more cups I had, the more it just tasted like cinnamon tea, kind of dissapointing.

Flavors: Chocolate

drank Beach Bellini by Teavana

I was innocently walking through the mall and suddenly a Teavana jumped out in front of me and forced me to try this lovely iced tea. I think many of us have mixed feeling about Teavana but occasionally they have something good. ;p

This tea is a pineapple fruit blend which actually has a pineapple flavor in it. Pineapple has been a somewhat elusive flavor for me to find in teas. Often pineapple is drowned out by other fruit flavors.

I made this as a cold brew . That is always a difficult decision with Teavana teas. They take a lot of tea leaf/fruit blend to make a good cold brew. I think I used almost an ounce in my Tekata iced tea pitcher. I did get a good well developed pitcher of tea and did a decent re-steep.

Flavors: Fruity, Pineapple

drank Chateau Blanc by Teavana

Old sample from Tea Sipper. Thank You!

This is ok. It mostly tastes like grape, artificial sweeteners, and a hint of something floral. It ends up being too sweet for me, and I think I would prefer it if they had been a little lighter on the grape. I would be interested in trying something similar that was less sweet.

I made this as an iced tea and it was delicious. It strongly tastes of pineapple and tropical berries. I can taste sweet and sour notes from various fruits.

Picked up about 25g of this blend at Teavana yesterday because I have tasted this several times before and I really enjoy it. It makes a smashing iced tea! It brews pink and fruity with a slight floral note.

I must admit that the tea’s taste versus the tea’s smell threw me off. I read about this tea online and had to go to Teavana to smell it—I am a HUGE fan of Jasmine teas. Their Jasmine Pearls and Peach Tranquility blend is amazing, so I thought the added berry in Peachberry would be just as sweet and floral. The dry leaves promised a sweet but delicate floral tea.

I brewed about 4 scoops in my Tea Forte Pugg teapot for about 1.5 minutes. The strength was perfect, but WOW it was TART! I was not expecting such a tart, Jasmine tea. I suspect the hibiscus has much to do with this! BUT I then added some rock sugar, and voila, the tea balanced out. It was no longer so tart—I could taste the notes of peach, jasmine, and strawberry. I then quickly finished the pot and brewed another! Delicious ! I think it will mix well with extra Peach Tranquility or Strawberry Lemonade. I cannot wait to try it iced!

I would recommend this, but it does need some sweetener to counteract the tart hibiscus!

Flavors: Floral, Jasmine, Peach, Strawberry
