Prepared in store bc I was craving some jasmine, and apparently you get a free refill! Sooo yeah. I got my free refill today and I DIDN’T THINK IT WOULD BE FREAKIN TRAFFIC AT 2PM AND I HAD TO PEE SO BAD AND IT WAS SO PAINFUL WOW but tea was okay. The lady who prepared it didn’t really wash the steeper out so it had the previous taste which was like chocolatey and weird and did not work with this tea at all.

Bummer! It’s annoying when we do it to ourselves but for a tea shop to not clean out the steeper is inexcusable.

I have having to pee and hitting traffic. Hello, tea drinker here. Drive faster, people!!!

And really, that’s inexcusable to not clean out the infuser.

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!

Ehh… this is a tea that I drank that’s halfway decent.

Backlog!

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

Tried a bit of this from the box and it definitely smells like chocolate! It was… a weird mix of flavours though. Nice and creamy, but the flavour was a bit off. Back in the box it went!

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.

Tatiana

I would be so stoked if a regular person I ran into not at Disney wished me a magical day. Though I might be kinda weird about it and freak them out with my “Oh my god do you work at Disney do you love it are you best friends with Goofy I bet you’re best friends with Goofy…” and so on without pausing for breath. Incidentally, I wish they sold loose leaf tea at Disney World. XD

I used to work at Walt Disney World, and they actually have a tea and spices store in Downtown Disney! It’s in the Spice and Tea Exchange, attached to Mickey’s Pantry and Earl of Sandwich . If I needed a loose tea fix, I always went there when I did my College Program in WDW. Well, there and they also had the Disney Wonderland tea from the regular store.

Tatiana

I should actually give Downtown Disney a fair chance. I went once for a little while and hated it, but it was crowded and there was a lot of construction. I’m going to check out this tea place though, thanks!

jump62359

See, when I worked, they were just starting construction.
Try getting there earlier in the morning, like before noon! Usually when it hits the afternoon, that’s when everyone heads over to DTD.

It’s not like a massive tea store like Teavana or DAVIDs, but they have a nice collection of blends and smelling jars

Tatiana

Thanks. :)

Also, is it cool if I use your tea rating guide, or something like it, on my profile? I’d credit you. It’d be nice so I can get some consistency with my ratings, most of the time I’m still like “uh, this is good, but what number, out of 101, to give it?” Or, “well, I rated this tea as an 80 but I cant remember what it tasted like; is this tea better than that one? should I give it an 85? 90?” etc. XD

jump62359

Hahah yeah sure, you can definitely use it if you’d like!

Mmmm a lovely roasted oolong to start off my morning! I haven’t had an oolong like this in a while :)
Nice tightly rolled leaves that expand like lovely, pale/light yellowy/green liquor after the first steeping.
Just a really great tea!

Cheri

I like this one quite a bit. It’s just the right amount of roastiness.

Tea rating guide:
100-95: Best thing to ever touch my mouth and I want more. Restocking is a must
94-80: Love this tea. Restock if I can
79-70: Decent tea. Neither love nor hate.
69-60: I won’t be upset when it runs out. I’ll drink it but won’t restock.
59-30: I’ve done whatever I can to like this tea and I’ll finish the cup.
29-10: I’ve done whatever I can to like this tea. It may or may not have gone down the sink…
9-below: Let’s not even hide it. This definitely went down the drain.

I love tea.
I drink it.
I log it.
I have a good time.
Lather, rinse, repeat.

I first discovered my love for tea with jasmine teas because that’s all my mother would buy, so for the longest time, I thought that all teas were jasmine! And then in 4th grade, I watched the tea episode of Good Eats and that’s when the education started! I’d like to blame Alton Brown for starting this obsession because now I only like loose leaf tea.
It wasn’t until my second year of college that I actually expanded my tea taste buds. Special shout out to Cara McGee, Tea Queen for her Adagio Fandom blends. Because of Cara, I actually started drinking blacks, herbals and whites and pretty much everything else in between. I still have a special love for my jasmine though :)
I (try to) drink tea daily. Usually just straight up, no sugar or milk. This little obsession started young and just… kept going, I guess.

also I apologize in advance for lazy tasting notes and horrible grammar in everything I write. I was an avid fandom blogger on tumblr and tumblr talk can get in the way of everything kthxbai
