I was expecting a lot of fake flavors with this tea. But it actually tastes like real raspberries. It has a ruby red liquor and a very sweet-tart smell. The taste is very juicy with a slight tart aftertaste. Excellent iced or hot! Honestly, this is one of the best Teavana teas I’ve ever had.

I woke up slightly grumpy this morning. I went to the kitchen to start the kettle and saw a tin of this staring at me, begging to be made. I grumpily gave in. Once my water was at the correct temperature I opened the tin to find beautiful little rose buds. My mood lightened at the sight of them. But no. I was determined to be grumpy. After about 2 minutes I poured it into my delicate tea pot and then into my little blue cup. The aroma was wonderful and would not give up until I cracked a smile.. the taste.. so light.. so soft.. so florally.. hints of jasmine and rose.. a sweet flavor from the white tea.. this tea was so.. delicious.. I gave in.. this tea instantly made me give up my grumpy mood and let me have a peace of mind feeling. Well.. that and Enchanted by Taylor Swift :] I feel like her music and white teas go together quite well!
TL;DR: This tea is amazing. And so is Taylor Swift.. :D

I got this as a sample with my package. The smell was wonderful! The first sip I thought “Oh.. It just tastes like another black tea.. I can’t really find the vanilla..” right after that thought..BAM… the vanilla hit my tongue! Very smooth and creamy with a slight bitter finish :] For me this would make an excellent morning tea!

I was expecting a bit more from this tea. It was ok. I couldn’t really find any chocolate, just mint. Wish I could say more, but I just wasn’t impressed by this one..

The smell of this tea reminds me of those chocolate orange sticks that come around during Christmas time! The flavor of this tea is kind of weak but you can still taste the chocolate with a hint of citrus(but it’s still very light..). This tea is a solid ok. Not the worst I’ve had and not the best either.

This tea smells delicious! It has a caramel taste that comes off a bit bitter and the aftertaste is where you can find the pear and a hint of chocolate. It is a very nice blend of flavors. A delicious treat if you’re looking for a dessert tea!

This is one of my favorite pu-erhs. It has a wonderful earthy flavor followed by a sweet/slightly tart fruit flavor. Honestly it’s a weird taste but it blends very well together! It’s really, really good iced, too!
I got about 3 steeps out of this tea with just a tad of flavor lost on the third.

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!

Bio

I love camping, longboarding, listening to and making music, hiking, yoga, cooking, the color blue, The Beatles, and of course the wonderful world of tea!
My journey with tea started about a year and a half ago. Since then I’ve learned a lot and that my favorites include oolongs, pu-erhs, and silver needle. I love a good dessert tea but I have found recently that I’m craving pure teas more and more! I look forward to learning a lot more from my fellow Steepsters :]
