98 Tasting Notes
Wow. It’s been awhile since I last reviewed anything.
I like this tea. I don’t love it but there is something endearing about it to me. There is a fresh grassy taste that can be a little strong at times but usually isn’t too intrusive. It actually reminds me of Matcha only with out the consumption of the powdered leaf. I would really enjoy drinking this on a nice temperate day during the spring. Maybe one day the weather will get to that point.
Backlog from last night. This is a very sweet tea and I feel like it would make a nice refreshing iced tea. I enjoyed the first steeping of it more then the few that followed after, most likely because the sugar that they obviously added to the blend was all used up the first time through. Enjoyable though, even though I prefer plain tea.
I think there might be something wrong with batch of this tea…. It looks like dirty dish water. I mean, it’s like I went to a restaurant, entered the kitchen at the end of the night, and took some of the dishwater. That or like it came from a bucket of water mop water. It tastes about the same as this too. It’s funny though, since it looked so appealing until I poured water over it. Oh, well got it as part of a gift set for 75% off regular price and my parents paid for it, so I’ll finish it.
Nice little white tea. There is a light semi-sweet flavor that I haven’t encountered too often in most of the white tea’s I have tried.
Oddly, I loved this better then most other Jasmine scented teas. The smell is very intense, which could be off putting, but with this one I just didn’t mind. The taste is fantastic to me. You taste the Jasamine yet you can still taste the green tea underneath.
So I just got home from visiting family and found a lovely package filled with tea from Infussion Tea! This one smelled the most interesting so I decided, why not? It tastes pretty much how it smells, which is like some sort of red wood. It’s not bitter or anything and the taste is rather nice, it’s similar to something that you would find in a dry rub for chicken or beef. I wanna just chew on some for some reason, and I just might.
So this was a fun one. I did 2 steeps of this which was fine since that is all I was planning on doing with this. The first one ended up very light and the pearls didn’t open fully yet. It tasted fine to me, a little light but still tasted fine. Now the second one is where things hit the fan. While waiting for my water I took one of the half opened pearls out and unraveled it. It was burnt in the middle. This is the point I realized this next steeping was dangerous. I steeped up the tea still, because why not. The liquid was slightly brown like someone mixed black tea and white tea together. Now the taste… The taste was like someone burnt silver needle tea, which is exactly what happened since the middle of almost all of these were burnt. So my conclusion is that I would drink this again only if I were to throw out the tea before it opened up all the way.
So, this is enjoyable. I have had better but for the most part this passes as something I would get again from Teavana if I had no other choice.
Been awhile since I reviewed something, mostly since I am visiting my parents and they drink different tea then me. On the plus side the Teavana near my parents was having a sale on everything in store, not just the Heavenly sale items. So they kindly picked me up a few large containers of tea, apparently for 75% off the original price.
I have had better green tea then this before but for something from Teavana, it’s not bad. It has a very very light flavor that is not bad and it smells a little like Chicken Noodle Soup. I would probably steep this longer myself, since I like to have a stronger flavor some times. Would get this again though, probably not as much as they got me since it’s going to take me a long time to use all of this hahaha.
Ricecake!!!!! That is what I get from this, that or rice cereal that isn’t very sweetened in almond milk. I love it and it makes me feel full.
