I really enjoy making iced tea with this. As a person who began drinking tea to help kick a soda habit, I like that I can have something so resembling a sugary drink while only sweetening it a little. I do recommend some sweetener, or all the citrus rinds will be very bitter.

Brews up mildly sour, grape has dominated and you can’t taste the tea.
The leaf really swells up too.

This only steeps twice, though they’re both good steeps.

Flavors: Grapes

Work tea.

This one was sweet though the chocolate was subtle. A roasty and earthy tea.

I found the chai flavor to be way too bold (I’m sensitive to it and it’s not my favorite taste), but I found when I cut this 50/50 with unflavored mate, it backed off the intense chai flavor and allowed the mate to come through.

drank Caramel Chai Rooibos by Teavana

This needs more leaf.

It is sweet and creamy with caramel. The flavour is fine but for a first steep, this is WEAK.

Edit: used double the amount and is steeps a second time well. But that’s 4 tsp in 10 oz!

Flavors: Caramel

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 45 sec 4 tsp 11 OZ / 325 ML

drank Coco Caramel Sea Salt by Teavana

It’s alright…. it’s a weird flavour if you think about it, so even if it’s fairly accurate it’s still weird.

First steep I turned into a latte with International Delight Vanilla because it was too oily. Turns out this chocolate-y latte drink.
Second steep (steeped forever) straight is actually not bad.

It’s fine for a whatever tea.

Flavors: Chocolate

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 45 sec 2 tsp 14 OZ / 414 ML

drank Earl Grey Creme by Teavana
4 tasting notes

I sincerely enjoyed my first exploration into writing a tasting note; however, I do not have the time to write such long tasting notes regularly. I also contend that anyone reading my tasting notes may prefer that I keep it a bit more succinct… so here it goes.

This has been one of my go-to teas of late. I tend to prefer black tea in the mornings and Earl Grey is the tea that got me back on my tea kick after a several year hiatus. This was my first voyage into the flavor of Earl Grey Creme.

This is a loose leaf tea. The dry leaf is dark and intermingled with yellow petals (Marigold, apparently) which gives this tea an inviting character. The smell of the dry leaves is a rather strong floral perfume of bergamot. I LOVE Bergamot. I like the more perfumey as well as the more citrusy flavors.

The color of the steeped tea again reminds me of stained cherry wood. The aroma of the steeped tea is much more heavy on the vanilla and the bergamot gets a bit lost for me. The tea is very smooth and has an almost creamy mouth feel. I can tell this is an Earl, but the bergamot is a bit mild for my tastes. I am enjoying the 2 oz I purchased immensely. This is a great breakfast tea and gives me a pleasant start to my day. I plan on sipping on this during morning rounds today.

Preparation included 1 packet of Truvia, my sweetener of choice. I have also enjoyed this tea with a splash of cream/milk; however, the flavor gets a bit lost so I prefer this tea alone.

Flavors: Floral, Perfume, Smooth, Vanilla

drank Jeju Island Green by Teavana

I’m still a tea novice. This is my first pure tea from Teavana. I was so excited because it’s from Korea and I’ve never tried anything from Korea. It has very strong spinach notes. I don’t like that. But something in the aftertaste is quite nice. But the spinach note brings it way down for me.

Flavors: Seaweed, Spinach

I love this tea, and this is coming from someone who is not a big fan of pumpkin. Something about the spice combination. I love making it into a latte with just a little bit of sweetener.

Flavors: Nutmeg

Tastes very weak and only one good steep out of it. It mostly tastes like murky cinnamon water. Not a fan at all.

Flavors: Cinnamon, Lemongrass

I really like this one. You have to use a lot and it doesn’t do well with resteeps. It tastes a bit sweet and I pick up grapefruit notes from it. I really do love it…but it’s pretty expensive and there is barely and tea in it.

Flavors: Grapefruit

(HOT) Back again on Golden Dragon. Decided to pull this one out again from my shelf after a long hectic day. Trying to be awake for the next few hours without being jittery and a nice floral sweet tea is just what I need. Perfect tea for relaxing on the couch, must be sipped to be appreciated. I think I like this tea more the second time around. added white honey and german rock sugar from teavana.

From the Herbal TTB.

This rooibos blend has a strong aroma and tastes of cinnamon, nuts, and slight vanilla. I can detect the added artificiality, but it doesn’t interfere that much.

Nice to drink once, but I wouldn’t have it again. It was OK.

Preparation
Boiling 7 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

This is one of my faves. Mellow and rich, the creaminess shines thru without being overly sweet. Could drink this anytime.

drank Royal English Breakfast by Teavana
21 tasting notes

I realized that I have a huge selection of teas from unknown sources. However, I was sipping on a cup of Teavana’s English Breakfast, and instantly knew this tea.

It’s very malty, earthy, smooth, and semi-sweet. It isn’t super heavy like an English Breakfast tends to be, though. I have had better English Breakfast teas, but this isn’t a bad tea at all. Overall, I like it.

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML
