10 Tasting Notes

drank MateVana by Teavana
10 tasting notes

Drank this last night. I wasn’t sure what I thought while drinking the first cup, but I resteeped, and the second cup was delicious. Got a total of 4 steepings, and probably could have gotten a 5th – 2nd & 3rd were definitely my favorites. I couldn’t imagine drinking this all day every day like I do green teas, but it is a very nice morning drink.

A pretty tasty tea, but I am finding that a really prefer either straight teas or very mildly flavored teas, and this had too much other flavor to really become a favorite of mine. I’ll enjoy it, but these 2oz are probably going to last me quite a while since this couldn’t be a daily tea for me.

drank Haute Chocolate by Teavana

Ordered this for my wife – she enjoyed it, but it really wasn’t for me. Might have been good with a little cream, but by itself really wasn’t what I was looking for in a chocolate-flavored tea.

Second steeping was much better than the first and had much stronger chocolate flavor. I was a bit disappointed that I didn’t really find any “heat” in this mix, as that was the primary reason that I ordered it.

Agreed – the “heat” quality is definitely lacking. I dare Teavana to prove to me that chili pepper really was used in it; I have my doubts!

This is my go-to teabag tea. It’s not great, and I don’t enjoy it anywhere near as much as my loose leaf varieties, but it’s a decent tea for me to drink while I’m on the run at work and is also still decent when it’s cold, which is very helpful. I brew 34oz at a time w/ 2 tea bags in a Nalgene bottle 2-3 times per day.

drank Sweet Dreams by Bigelow

This is my wife’s favorite bedtime tea. For bagged teas, this is probably my favorite bedtime tea as well. It is naturally sweet and even tastes good cold when I finish a cup in the morning.

I am not a fan of this tea, but my son likes it. Definitely more of a kids warm drink and less of a “tea” as far as I am concerned. Not something that I would ever be interested in drinking.

A good beginner tea for this variety. I prefer stronger Pu-Erh teas personally, but this would be a good introduction. It was good for a second steeping, and I probably could have done a third.

drank Wellness by Joy's Teaspoon

This tea was great for a first infusion – possibly even a little too fruity and sweet for my taste, but very good (would have been fantastic iced). I did not feel that it was very good on a second infusion though.

*edit: Just realized that the second infusion generally wouldn’t matter for iced tea…
