50 Tasting Notes
I loved it! I steeped it a bit long the first time because i walked away from it, so it was steeped for about 6 minutes which made it too strong for me, but on the second steeping it still held a rich smooth flavour. It’s kind of like Black Dragon pearls but more rich. This is the perfect morning tea. If people like English Breakfast, they’ll likely love this! I have to add milk to it, but it’s a great new tea for me!
I have a hard time loving Oolong, but I love Kombucha so this one makes it in my good graces. This one is so totally awesome dude (psychedelic even) :) It’s lovely and tropical and I’ve had it straight and with milk, and I think i prefer it without. If you have a hard time with Oolongs, try this one. Becareful to follow brewing instructions, it can be bitter if you oversteep.
I was in the mood for some green tea love today. I’ve steeped it twice and it’s still pretty amazing. Love the grassy taste of this tea, not bitter at all.
Hummm. I had high hopes for this, I mean, I like Rooibos, I like Coconut and I’m guessing the lavender was a wild card. It wasn’t very earthy like most rooibos’ i’m used to, and it had a hint of mint, almost a cooling feeling as you drank it. It was just an odd combination. It was really coconutty, which is really fine for me, but the lavender did something odd to the end result.
This one is not for me, I didn’t realize it had cloves and cinnamon, and i could have probably dealt with the cinnamon but not the cloves. It’s got a rich chocolaty taste with a light dusting of cinnamon and cloves. It tastes better than it smells, but it’s still not for me.
This is one full tea. And surprise surprise I’m not a fan, it’s too tart, too fruity with a hint of mint as it cools. It looks like I should eat it instead of drink it. This one is up for grabs!
I’m not sure what I think of this one yet. You can definitely taste the Cacao. It’s got a smoky taste to it that i’m not sure I like. Smoky like a fire, not like a cigar. It says it’s like coffee but i’ve yet to find a tea that actually lives up to that promise. When you drink coffee you WANT coffee, not tea that tastes like cacao. *ok, end rant. I think it’s the rooibos in the tea that is making me rethink steeping time, i steeped for 4 minutes, and it is a bit too long as i’m getting a real earthy/clay taste to it. Will try again.
Yikes, some nasty reviews here! I actually quite like it. It’s light and fruity… 1.5 tsp and steeped for 2 minutes. It’s not tart and I haven’t added anything to it. As with all of teavana’s tea’s it smells amazing. It’s got a light pear taste to it but I can definitely taste the white tea behind it. White tea’s are generally very soft, and this one has more flavour than most i’ve tried. I would have this again.
Well, i’m quite surprised, I don’t hate it. It’s quite tasty, fruity and pepperminty… I think i quite like it. I would have it again. But make sure you don’t let it cool as it becomes quite tart. For those of you who know Mr. Sketch… it smells like the light blue marker…. Oh and I said “quite” quite often, buahahahaha
