drank Prosperous Peach Oolong by Teavana
50 tasting notes

I had such high hopes for this tea. It’s not amazing. I can’t really taste the peach, it really just tastes like a lighter oolong. Meh. What the previous taster said, it tastes vegetal. I don’t hate it. It just doesn’t taste like much.

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 0 sec

Teavana is such a crap shoot…

Which is bad because i just ordered about 2lbs of various teas online from them…BEFORE checking steepster. shakes head. BOOOO to my wallet.

To be honest, there appears to be a bias on Steepster against Teavana anyway, so I’m not sure how useful reading the reviews can be. I’m sure part of it is because tea connoiseurs have a refined taste, but it’s important to keep in mind that all tea shops will have teas you like and teas you hate. I read tons of praise for Adagio and DavidsTea and half of those I find disgusting. Thus, sometimes we have to chalk it up to different tastes. My personal experience with trying many other sources for tea has not pulled me away from the favorites that I did find at Teavana, and the ones I liked less I just stopped drinking. So, don’t be disappointed in your shipment yet!

Erin , I did the same thing. And I have found a few of them that I actually liked so they aren’t all terrible but I am leery of them, to say the least.
