669 Tasting Notes
Such a fantastic tea that I love so much!
Love the gunpowder and vanilla rooibos and spearmint :)
Thank you tons to shmiracles for splitting the bag with me!
This was a sipdown of the last 5g that I had. So sad to see it go, but I’ll definitely reorder when I get my tea stash down to a reasonable amount! I keep saying that. I already know my next Adagio/DAVIDs/Nina’s/Butiki/every other tea store order out there soooooo yeah. It’s going to take a while haha
I feel like with all my morning shifts that I had a couple weeks back, I was never able to drink tea! Since I never had time in the morning to drink it, and when I got home, it was already late in the afternoon so I couldn’t drink caffeine because I knew I wouldn’t wake up.
But now, I’ve been getting closing shifts so I can drink a cup or two before work starts, and I don’t care about caffeine since I get off at 2am and still need to stay awake to drive home!
I haven’t had this tea in a while, but it still smells oh so wonderful from the package. It definitely smells like mango. Like ripened yellow mango, which is my favourite! May be a bit too ripe, but it tastes wonderful :)
I’m a lazy butt and it’s almost bedtime so tea filters it is!
I just measured 2g of this into my filter and I’m just going to drink and drink until I steep all the flavour out :)
It’s a lovely tea. I seriously have no idea how to differentiate the peppermint teas I’ve had from different companies since peppermint just… tastes the same all around. I’ve only ever tasted peppermint tea or absolutely terrible peppermint tea. This is on the plain ol peppermint tea side so it’s good :)
Thank you Shmiracles for sending this my way!
And thank you to my roommate, Angie, for choosing my three teas of the night hehe :) I don’t have anything to do till 5pm tomorrow so I’ll just DRINK ALL THE TEA!!
I don’t remember drinking this so I’ll probably just write this note as a first time tasting of this tea :)
Lovely cinnamon-y chai scent right out of the package (and can we all agree that Karen packs her teas in the absolute cutest way?) I do smell the oolong bits coming out (and I’m just going by what steepster says okay) BUT THE CHAI. IT’S LOVELY.
I do need milk soo… I’ll see if my roommate has some?
But this is a lovely tea! Because it is a chai tea, I had to add sugar and milk to it. But it’s definitely a nice cuppa :)
Flavors: Chocolate, Spices
I got out of class early today so I decided to go to the mall to pick up my free oz of tea! But dude. Malls are dangerous. I’m not much of a shopper, but I saw an Aldo and I needed my shoe inserts. And I passed by a Crabtree & Evelyn and I knew I needed some hand lotion since work is getting my hands all dry from work aaand I sorta splurged haha.
So Aldo, Crabtree & Evelyn, and free tea from Teavana! But I did purchase a tin since it was 50% off :)
I decided to go for this tea for my free oz. I wanted a green tea, and this one sounded cool so I went with it! And I don’t have that many spinach/vegetal teas so I figured I’d go with a strong green.
This one has a very strong vegetal scent dry. Leaves are super cute and nicely rolled up hehe
Once I poured the water in, it started getting a nice vibrant green colour to it!
Oh, this is a very nice tea! Not too vegetal, which I like. I did steep it for 1min, but it wasn’t flavourful enough. So I added 30seconds and it’s good! Maybe a tad too much spinach so next time I have this, I think 1min 15sec would do the trick!
And I can tell there’s still plenty of flavour in the leaves so I can’t wait to see how well it’ll resteep :)
Flavors: Broccoli, Grass, Green, Moss, Spinach, Vegetal
I feel a cold coming on and this is not okay since I have an 8day work week ahead of me!!
I got this as a free sample from my last DAVIDs order a while ago and I’ve been saving it for a day when I’ll feel under the weather… and today is that day.
Opening up the pack it smells so healthy and it smells like medicine. Gross. BUT AT LEAST AT FIRST SNIFF IT SMELLS LIKE IT’S GOING TO CURE ME IN AN INSTANT. Mint, juniper berries, citrus. Yeah I’ll stick to those ingredients for the next week or so just to make myself feel better.
I like how the orange peel is coming out as it steeps!
Oh gosh. IT TASTES SO HEALTHY. Happy that there’s no ginger in this, and the orange and eucalyptus oils are very strong.
I think… I think I like this? I might get some of this when I go to DAVIDs (in like a year ha) just so I have tea for when I feel all gross and groggy
Flavors: Eucalyptus, Mint, Orange
