12 Tasting Notes

Made this blend during work and it was absolutely terrible. It was so tart and acidic I thought I had thrown up in my mouth. I’ll have to try these two teas by themselves, but together they’re terrible.

Recently purchased this along with a bunch of other tea from Teavana, and it has to be my favorite. Great hot by itself or with a touch of honey.

Yeah I think so. I don’t think you were that fond of Spice of Life either, lol.

I thought I was ok with Spice of Life, but it was just nutty and heavy and I was feeling cheap.

drank Houji Fruits by Lupicia

Quite possibly my favorite tea from Lupicia. It has the nutty flavor from the houjicha as well as the sweetness from the muscat and apple fruits.

Boiling 2 min, 0 sec

drank Blackberry Mojito by Teavana

Much better iced tea than hot. It leaves a slightly weird feeling in your mouth as you drink it, kind of like it’s not quite carbonated. I’m guessing that’s the mojito part.

There’s a strong coffee flavor to this tea, which for those not used to coffee, like myself, makes this a little less than enjoyable, but with milk and honey it’s manageable.

This was my very first loose leaf tea. It still has a very special place in my heart (or stomach). By far my favorite chai, it doesn’t have the potential to be bitter like ones that are black tea based. Great by itself or with a touch of honey.

Much better iced tea than a hot tea, but it’s still doable. I really love mixing this with Lupicia’s peach melba. All kinds of tasty nomz.
