787 Tasting Notes

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!

drank Lemon Lime Kampai by Teavana

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. :]

drank Earl Grey Creme by Teavana

One of the first Earl Grey teas I’ve really tried. But all I can say is I loved it! Has a nice balance of cream flavor and bergamot. It had a very creamy finish. That’s all I really have to say about this tea :] Very simple yet delicious!

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.

Try it cold! Or even steep it at room temperature for about an hour and add ice, it’s so good that way.

KallieBoo!

Hmm I’ll have to try it like that. I tried a second steep and it turned out pretty good. Thanks for the suggestion :D

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.

I didn’t know what to expect when I bought this. But I really like it! It starts out as kind of a chai, cinnamon taste and goes into a chocolate/licorice taste. It’s actually REALLY good. Kind of a creamy taste. Very delicious! :]

drank Blueberry Rooibos by Rishi Tea
787 tasting notes

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 :]

While grocery shopping this tea caught my eye. It has a sweet/spicy taste to it. First taste is slightly spicy then it takes a turn for the sweet side leaving a vanilla/caramel aftertaste. You can definitely tell it has rooibos in it, too. It is a very nice “before bed” tea :]

Thank you Angel and the Teavivre team for the wonderful samples!
I’ve had this tea from a few different companies. But in my opinion.. Teaviver does it the best! Most other ones have a SUPER strong licorice taste and that’s all there is to it. This one starts out as a warm, dry flavor I honestly can’t explain. Then there is a mild aftertaste of sweet licorice. I got about 3 steeps out of it. I followed the steeping directions on their website..
1st- 1 min.
2nd-2 min.
3rd- 3 min.
Turned out wonderful :]

Boiling 1 min, 15 sec

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 :]
