786 Tasting Notes
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 :]
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.
3rd- 3 min.
Turned out wonderful :]
