My work tea buddy and I tried this together. Our conversation about its taste made another person laugh at us.

“I’m not tasting caramel,” she said. “Here. Try this.”
Me: “I’m totally tasting the caramel.”
Friend: “What? It’s ALL ginger.”
Me: “Yeah. Ginger, too. But a sort of molasses-caramel, too. Like, maple syrup.”
Friend: “I think I’m hyper-sensitive to ginger.”
Other person in room 1: “Are you drinking the same thing?”
Other person in room 2: “It smells like a candle in here.”
Me & friend: “WHAT KIND OF CANDLE?”
Other person in room 2: “A gingerbread cookie?”
Friend: “GINGER. SO MUCH GINGER.”
Me: “Let’s add some almond milk.”
(afterward)
Friend: “THIS TAKES IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL. THE TEA IS ELEVATED.”

In summary, guys, there’s ginger in this. Possibly too much.
And possibly not enough caramel, or any at all.
And you might prefer it with milk.
Depending on who you are.

This is a totally subjective tea.
This tea might prove that we live in the Matrix.

Flavors: Caramel, Ginger, Maple Syrup, Molasses, Spices

drank Raspberry Limeade by Teavana
15 tasting notes

Again with the hibiscus- this does have a cherry limeade kind of kook aide taste. It does have a bit of artificial taste. I do like the. A died pieces and after I figured I didn’t like it as much I started to pick out the candied pieces. It’s just ok. Wouldn’t purchase again. Also it’s quite heavy and you don’t get much for the price

Preparation
1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

drank Strawberry Blush Rosé by Teavana
33 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
33 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
15 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
33 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

drank Dragonwell by Teavana

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.

Preparation

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
237 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
15 tasting notes

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
463 tasting notes

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
475 tasting notes

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.

This is very sour is brewed too long, be careful with brew times!

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.
