THIS BOX IS MASSIVE and there’s so many teas I’ve never had before! This is a definite first.
Nice, sweet, light aroma coming out of the package.
Definitely has that roasted genmaicha smell right when I poured the water in! Now with the matcha, what difference does the matcha make? I haven’t a clue, so that why I’m here to find out!
Hmm.. Tastes like a slightly buttery version of the generic genmaicha I’ve had. Nice, and I can definitely tell the difference between the two.
And back into the box this goes!
Flavors: Butter, Roasted, Toasted Rice
Teeny Tiny Tea Box round 2
I went through a chocolate phase not too long ago, and I just had to try this tea! Smells super chocolatey, not getting much mint though.
Not exactly the best tea out there. It went a bit bitter and it may have been my fault for letting it steep a bit too long, but nothing a splash of milk can’t fix! Decent tea, just nothing I would go out of my way to purchase
Teeny Tiny Traveling Tea Box round Two
Drinking this iced right now since it’s STILL SUPER HOT.
It’s a lovely fruity, hibiscus-y tea. It didn’t turn super bitter from the hibiscus, which tends to happen whenever I drink any tea with hibiscus. I think this could have done with a tad more agave, but it’s pretty good!
A nice fruity tea, and back in the box it goes!
I was on Steepster mobile and wrote this note in the wrong tea…
So yesterday I went in to Teavana to pick up my free tea bc Starbucks rewards, and the employees there were kinda frantic and all over the place and they were a bit impatient with ringing me up so they just gave me my tea for free? Service wasn’t too great, but hey, FREE TEA.
So today I decided to visit another Teavana (the one on the way to my Aunt’s) and I was being helped out by Grace and she was LOVELY. I got this tea prepared in store, and got my free ounce of Jasmine Oolong to take home. We talked a bit about tea (of course) and I told her about how I’ve had like half their tea wall already bc I send tea out to friends and they send tea back to me. She said that was one of the best things she heard that day and I’m all I KNOW RIGHT. IT’S THE BEST THING EVER.
Then as I was leaving, I wished her a magical day and it slipped out oops. I’m totally not a Disney cast member. Not at all.
