Yet another tea from my Teavana haul. I haven’t been in a huge tea mood lately, and I don’t know why, but I blame it on stress. I’m trying to get back into the swing though!

So I’ve had this once before this. I liked it waaaay better this time. Last time I got mostly strawberry but this time I made sure to get more actual tea in there, causing it to brew to more of a tea color than the bright red I got the first time. I’m curious as to just what teas are in the base…. I see mostly green oolong but there’s also some pu-erh in the mix when you pick through it. I’d be interested in trying Teavana’s pu-erh alone, but they don’t offer it as a straight tea, which leads me to believe that they get it from another company/supplier and rebrand it.

Regardless, this is just okay. Like the other teas I’ve tried from Teavana. It tastes like strawberry and I don’t really get too much tea flavor. I’d be interested in seeing if this will actually aids in weight loss….. Interesting.

Even though the teas I’ve tried so far have all been “eh” (except the Cha Yen Thai…. I bought some full size and I LOVE it), I won’t give up hope in Teavana. Believe it or not, I’m really trying to like their teas. I’m going down to Valley Forge in April and we’re going to the King of Prussia mall (the largest mall in America….. DON’T BE FOOLED. The Mall of America has the most stores and is certainly more impressive but King of Prussia is the physically biggest mall, with the most leasable retail space) and they have a Teavana and I do plan on picking up some teas to make iced…. Their fruity blends look like they could really shine iced, and it will be that time of year!

Don’t worry ol chum…it’s Spring Fever you know…got a bit of the Feev and the tea thirst has bezazzled you for a short while. It will return I promise you. We will see to it. I for one am a magic Grandmother and have uttered a magic Grandmother word (it’s a bloomin secret Ian) so I am confidant that the tea urges will be back in no time at all. Cheers!

Hello!

I’m Ian and I’m a 15 year old student who lives in Vermont. I started (heavily) drinking tea in Late 2010 and have been obsessed ever since!

I tend to drink more black and herbal teas, though I do enjoy oolong, green, and white, and I’m exploring other facets of the tea world (I’m still trying with pu-erh!)

I tend to lean towards sweeter and fruity flavors in my teas, and I’m not a big fan of smoky flavored teas, or anything that’s VERY bold.

I also enjoy a cup of coffee every once and a while, though it does mess with my stomach sometimes so I don’t drink it as often as I drink tea.

In addition to tea drinking, I’m also really interested in:
Classical music (I’ve been playing clarinet for 5 years now and it’s my favorite thing to do), independent arts/music, education on environmental sustainability, reading, Fair Trade and safe-trade practices, Cognitive science, art history, and a lot more.

I’m open to swaps, but I don’t have a very wide collection. Regardless, if I review a tea and you would like a sample, feel free to message me and we can work something out! If you would like to just try something without a swap, feel free to ask too! I know that I personally don’t have a lot of teas to swap and if you’re in the same position as me just feel free to ask for a sample and I’ll send you some, no strings attached!

I run a blog on TeaTrade which you can find here: http://serendipitea.teatra.de/. The goal of my blog is to better connect tea with the arts and go beyond just the taste aspect of tea. Enjoy!
