drank Berry Basil Blast by Teavana
240 tasting notes

Thanks to KallieBoo! for this sample!

I was feeling adventurous tonight and once I discovered this was a white tea and thus low in caffeine, I went for it.

It’s actually not bad! I sweetened it and it basically tastes like strawberry jam though the sample contained quite a few strawberry chunks. I’m not getting the basil really, maybe a hint at the end of the sip. I’m not sure I’d go out of my way to buy this, but I’ll use up the sample.

2 heaping teaspoons in my 16oz steeping mug

Bio

I recently discovered loose leaf tea and am already addicted (much to my husband’s dismay)! I prefer fruity teas iced and savory teas hot. Looking forward to drinking and chatting.

Some likes/dislikes I’ve been noticing:

Likes:
Pineapple
Jasmine
Fruity White Teas
Assam Black

Dislikes:
Spicy flavors unless in chai
astringent black teas

For my own reference, I’m only placing “full size” teas in my cupboard.
