drank Jasmine Oolong by Teavana
669 tasting notes

((I’m never on here oops))

I haven’t posted for 3 months now, but I’ve been having tea here and there!
Sipdown day today bc I’m legit getting rid of 90% of my teas!

Ehh any free tea is good tea. Not my fave jasmine.


In other news, the reason why I’m getting rid of my teas is because I’m going to Walt Disney World! I’m very excited :) I got a management position over there (a management internship in food and beverage).
Yeah things have changed in the past three months. I took and passed my level 1 (introductory) sommelier exam for wine, and I got this internship aww yeahh. But it’s kinda stressful bc I really do have to minimize what I bring to Florida D:

Okay that’s it for now. I’ll hopefully have more sipdowns/tasting notes today!

drank Tranquil Dream by Teavana
1147 tasting notes

Picked this up the other day because it looked interesting. I thought it was a new tea but I see there are already a lot of reviews. It seems to remind other reviewers of a tea called Sleepytime but I have never had that. There is nothing in this tea that is likely to have the effect of putting me to sleep. A number of flavors emerge from this tea, first the chamomile, and secondly the lemongrass. I think there is another flavor in the background but I’m not sure what it is. This is a nice tasting herbal. Because of my insomnia I limit myself to herbals at this hour and the occasional cup of decaf. My new job has me getting home late at night.

I brewed this one time in a Teavana Glass Perfect Tea Maker/Gravity Steeper with 3 tsp leaf and boiling water for 8 minutes.

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more 3 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

My wonderful boyfriend picked some of this up on our adventure to Teavana this past weekend. He was looking for a low maintenance, high caffeine, loose black tea to have at work, and this fit the bill.

We made some to try. The dry pearls smell fishy and earthy. Once sipped, it’s very malty, smooth, and hearty. Reminds me of a Scottish Breakfast tea, although not at all astringent. He’s very happy with his purchase.

Overpoweringly fruity tea with nearly imperceptible oolong flavor. By itself it’s lacking, but blending with a smooth black tea gives it much needed body and depth.

Flavors: Champagne, Rose, Strawberry

drank Black Dragon Pearl by Teavana
3 tasting notes

As this tea is only harvested in Yunnan Province in the Spring (late march/April), the tea I purchased at Teavana was likely 2015 harvest, and therefore about a year old.

This tea is a strong yet very smooth tea that takes some time to brew as it is rolled into little balls. Eastern-style brew methods should splash (or perform a rinse) with a bit of hot water and allow the balls a minute or two before first steep. Western-style brewing will take 3-5 minutes. This tea worked very well ‘grandma-brewed’ – leaves left to sit in tea pot all evening/night – the next day the tea was still smooth and tasty.

Teavana claims 30 leaves to a ball. As these balls are the size of large peas, I doubt that.

It may be true in other brands of Black Pearl, where the balls are much larger (quarter-sized, one ball per cup) and the leaves are rolled and tied.

This version of black pearl is just ok on it’s own. It is definitely not the best black pearl I’ve had.

drank Comfort by Teavana
1147 tasting notes

This is a fairly interesting herbal with a lot of ingredients. The main flavor that comes through though is the ginger, probably followed by the lemon. The rest of the ingredients are not really noticeable. I like this tea well enough so it will probably become a regular night time tea for me as it is caffeine free.

I brewed this one time in a 16oz Teavana Glass Perfect Tea Maker/Gravity Steeper with 3 tsp leaf and boiling water for 8 minutes.

Flavors: Ginger, Lemon

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more 3 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

Herbal and Decaf TTB.

This is sweet-tart and fruity. I’m not really tasting almonds or plums, and it doesn’t taste anything like what I would have imagined from that name, but it’s not bad.

Flavors: Fruity, Sweet, Tart

Preparation
Boiling 8 min or more 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML
