4 Tasting Notes
A pretty mild Earl Grey-type tea. It is pleasant, but not my favorite. I appreciate the prominent bergamot and lavender-ish flavor, but the overall blend doesn’t have the bite that I expect from an Earl Grey.
I bought this tea with several others from Teavana’s spring collection of new teas. I was really skeptical of a chocolate tea—I tend to prefer spicier black teas. WOW, was I blown away! I absolutely love this tea and it tastes spectacular sweetened with honey or unsweetened. I recommend steeping this tea double the usual time as it can be a bit on the milder side. I find it tastes fantastic when paired with a snickerdoodle-type cookie such as Lucy’s Gluten Free Cinnamon Thins. Really fantastic tea for anyone seeking a great dessert tea! I don’t really taste the banana, but the overall blend is perfect.
I had this tea brewed with Teavana’s Peach Tranquility herbal tea. It had a pleasant, mild flavor (not personally my favorite) but quite enjoyable. It was one of my favorite herbal teas, but I usually prefer black tea varieties over milder teas. I couldn’t really taste the Oolong; the strawberry overpowered that flavor undertone.
