Recent Tasting Notes
I got a sample of this from CarolWho, and I liked it a lot. I’d tried recently some orange-type teas from other places, and none of them had the orange taste I wanted. This one did. I do agree that it might taste a bit artificial, but I’m ok with that, if my other choices are bland.
First tea to try in a swap box I just got. At first, I really tasted the berry flavor! Wow…that must be what an elderberry tastes like! At the back is a chocolate flavor…I’d have to say a weak dark chocolate.
As I keep drinking it, the berry flavor is subsiding. I’m not sure I’m tasting any tea base. It’s not a bad tea, but not sure I’d buy it over and over, either.
There have been so many RLT flavored matcha tasting notes on my dashboard lately that I’ve been feeling a little left out. I haven’t really played with matcha very much – had a couple of inexperienced didn’t do it right ewwww kind of moments and moved on to something else. Since then I’ve been lurking, reading, watching how all the matcha lovers around here are experimenting, and have decided that pretty much anything goes. Soooooo….
I have a tin of this in my cupboard – and no idea what I’m going to do with it, but should either drink it or pass it on before it goes stale.
If RLT can add all kinds of weird and wonderful flavors to their matcha, and if people say you can just toss it into milk, give it a shake and voila something fun – I’m thinking why can’t I do that. Ummm Dex – hate to point out the obvious but this isn’t fun RLT matcha. Riiiiiigggghhhhht – ok so lets go the other way – why because I can…
I put 1/2 tsp of matcha powder in a glass, added 1 cup of orange flavored milk, insert stick blender. 30 seconds later I had a very odd colored frothy concoction in my glass. HHhhhhmmmmm frothy is good right? This is actually pretty good. I didn’t blend it enough, I had some sediment in the bottom of the glass, but tasty enough that I would do it again.
I can buy chocolate, strawberry, caramel, coffee, cookies and cream milk (I think I can also get some of the chocolate bar brands flavored milk – just not sure which)- so I think I will be doing this again…..
This is a big, chunky tea. It’s got big pieces of strawberries and raisins and apples and who knows what else. I didn’t actually see much in the way of oolong in the leaves/stuff or in the taste. It’s also very, very light in color and very sweet and perfumey in aroma. The taste is nice, though I think I’d prefer more of the strawberry and less of the rose, since the rose kind of reminds me of body wash or lotion. I don’t think I’ll buy more when this runs out, but I don’t regret buying it. (It was my first experience in a Teavana and I think I still prefer buying online with nobody giving me the hard sell, but hey, it was on sale!)
I received this as a gift and was very excited to try it. I HATED it! The taste was just overwhelmingly bitter. I couldn’t even choke down a whole cup (although I tried as I was with the person who gave it to me. Awkward!). In fairness though, I am a legitimate super taster (I’ve been tested), so I am particularly sensitive to bitterness.
I have quite a few banana heavy teas, but this one is probably my favourite. I don’t get a ton of chocolate, but this is just chock full of banana and nut sweetness. It gets sweeter and sweeter as it steeps longer. The banana flavour is also nice and natural. It tastes like a ripe banana not the banana pudding kind of banana. It is an easy tea to drink and one everyone seems to enjoy!
I was excited to try this one because it has some amazing reviews. I have to admit that sometimes when a tea is highly rated and well reviewed, I wonder if it’s just issue with ME and maybe I don’t get it.
So I made this according to how the people with the good reviews did, same temp and two minute steep. All I get is a weak tea with an aftertaste like someone poured perfume in it. No fruit at all. I don’t even think I can finish the cup. I let it cool completely to see if it was better cold, and it tastes the same.
It tastes sort of like old lady perfume smells to me.
This has a pretty strong pear flavor. I find that Teavana teas usually have interesting names, but taste nothing like their monikers. This actually resembles pear though the taste is slightly artificial. It is intensely fruity with a slight green oolong aftertaste. Though the tea is pretty sweet without any added sweetener there is also a slight tartness. It makes a good iced tea, which is how I’m enjoying it now.
Sipdown no. 145 of the year 2014.
As I am hopelessly behind on the daily sipdown project, I am now adjusting my goal to keep myself on an average sipdown of 1 per day, and as it is the 98th day of the year, I’m still in pretty good shape. I keep hoping that as things settle down I’ll be able to establish a new habit, but the problem is lately things have not been settling down.
Today I even ran out of the house without my Timolino, which was tragic. I had a slice of bread with peanut butter in my hand which I wolfed down in the car. Wolfed being the operative word, because it felt as though it stuck in my chest on the way down. It was really uncomfortable and I had nothing to wash it down with so I had to stop and buy a drink at the closest gas station.
But having now gotten through two training sessions and a couple of phone calls, I am taking a break to have some tea. I forgot, somehow, that this had rooibos in it. Now at sipdown, I’m remembering—because it appears that a lot of the rooibos sifted down to the bottom of the tin.
As I’ve mentioned, this doesn’t taste bad, it’s just weird and not very oolongy. It’s sort of a smoother, lighter version of the Constant Comment flavor profile, right down to the orange. It actually reminds me of the “tea” my mother made for my father when he had a cold, which was essentially some cinnamon sticks and clove and a touch of lemon. I can’t now remember whether she just boiled these up in water or whether she added them to Lipton. Either way, it wasn’t a particularly subtle flavor but also not horrible.
This is actually pretty flavorful and not at all offensive. I just get no oolong at all in the flavor, and the toasted nut brulee name baffles me. I think it should be called orange cinnamon cardamom. Wouldn’t you know, Teavana still carries this one. Figures.
This tea gave me a headache, it was so sweet. I had a cup brewed for me in store without anything in it (after smelling it, I figured additional sweeteners were just asking for diabetes). The flavours were certainly interesting, and I give Teavana props for trying to do something completely out of the box. It just wasn’t for me.
If I was to make this at home, I’d use half of the tea.
We picked up my fiance’s new car yesterday and everything went really smoothly! The car is nice and exceeded his expectations in terms of highway performance — woohoo! Plus, we almost immediately agreed on a name for the car (yes, I’m the sort of person who names vehicles and other inanimate objects … and then talks to them …)!
I made this when we got home from the dealership as a post-dessert treat. Really should have skipped dessert for this tea — all the sugar I’d just consumed really threw the flavor off for the first quarter of my cup. After that, tart fruit with a dusky chocolate background. Yum!
I stocked up on this tea when I found out they wouldn’t be selling it any more. I have worked to try to create it. I lack carrot bits, and knowledge of what some of the ingredients were. I love the light taste with the fruity undertone. It even has a slightly bitter finish that keeps me satisfied. Overall I find it to be a very relaxing tea. I am sad to slowly work through what if have left of it.
Tastes quite a bit like grape juice, which is a bit comforting when the initial smell is more of an artificial grape candy type smell. It’s definitely very light, but I’m almost disappointed that it doesn’t have more of a grape-ier flavor to it. Definitely a good iced tea, though!
It is with a very, very heavy heart that I have to lower my rating of this tea. Teavana, in its “wisdom,” messed with a good thing and changed this tea’s recipe. I restocked it several weeks ago, but as soon as I opened the new bag (having not paid that much attention in the store), I knew something was different. Sure, the fruit and coconut pieces are a bit bigger and healthier looking, but… and I shook the bag a lot just to be sure… there are no pink peppercorns. Anywhere. Sure enough, after I steeped some of the new stuff, the flavor is MOSTLY the same, but it’s missing that delicious spicy bite that I loved so much.
You’ve ruined my day, Teavana. Ruined it.
