729 Tasting Notes
This is the first matcha I have ever tried. My boyfriend got me a clear matcha bowl and a whisk set for my birthday. I was so excited.
First few attempts were a fail because I didn’t make it correctly.. But now.. Woah! I love the frothy light green. I love the taste of this green tea. Very vegetal and a bit of sweetness. It has a very creamy finish. I always feel so special when I drink this. I found that this pairs very well with a relaxed morning and some Ingrid Michaelson!
This tea reminds me of a chocolate strawberry. Fruity and chocolatea (aaahh see what I did there ;D). Can’t really find the red pepper in this tea. It reminds me of something Teavana has. Not really liking the aftertaste. I might have to save this tea for when I’m craving something chocolate covered. Sorry :/ Not really a whole lot to say about this one..
When I opened this sample, I thought “Woah! This looks weird.” Then I smelled it.. and I was in heaven. I LOVED this tea. It has a strong cinnamon taste with nice notes of cardamom and clove. You can barely taste any chocolate. It is the last flavor you get a hint of. The only thing I would change about this tea is to add just a tad more chocolate. But it still was an awesome one!
The first sip of this tea was very citrusy. But not too IN YOUR FACE citrusy. Very light, very refreshing. I imagine it would make a marvelous iced tea!
For some reason all of Teavana’s teas leave a weird aftertaste in my mouth..
Other then the aftertaste I really did like this tea. :]
Like all of Teavana’s teas, this one took a few sips to decide if I liked it or not. Well I forgot I was cooling the water in my kettle before pouring it over the tea.. so this tea was brewed at a cooler temperature then I wanted to brew it at. It turned out ok still. The liquor is a very pretty pink color. The aroma is floral and fruity. I think I liked the aroma better then the actual tea. The fruit flavor is light. Hints of berries and peach. I couldn’t really taste any jasmine or floral notes (But then again I only brewed this at 165 ish.. next time we will try it a little bit warmer.) Slight tart aftertaste.. didn’t really like that.. But I liked this tea. Not my favorite but I think I would order it again.
I have wanted to buy the truffle set by Mighty Leaf for some time now. Finally I had to just give in! Anyways, on to the tea! The aroma of this tea is absolutely WONDERFUL! Warm and chocolaty. :] What more could a girl ask for?
The taste is very mellow. A slight chocolate taste. A slight pu-erh taste. For some reason I feel like I taste a hint of mint, but from what I’ve read there is no mint.. There is a slight citrus end note.
I got this as a sample with my Teavana order. It’s ok, but it’s way too sweet for my tastes.(I usually NEVER use sugars..) I can see why they recommended trying this iced. I think I’d really enjoy this tea if there weren’t as much rock sugar in it. Very fruity and you can definitely taste the blueberry.
As soon as you open the tin of this tea a sweet blueberry smell hits you in the face(In a good way of course..). It’s very strong and as it’s hanging out and steeping it makes your entire kitchen smell like blueberries :] It made me SO hungry sitting there and smelling it. The taste isn’t so bad either. A bit tart but it’s very light. It reminds me of blueberry pie! Honestly.. I REALLY wanted a scoop of vanilla ice cream with this wonderful rooibos. I really liked it :]
