220 Tasting Notes

Like the other I just added and reviewed,(And I think these were bought from the same company…they kind of taste similar.) It’s an ok tea, I think it would be smashing iced. And is light on the fruit taste. Truthfully I would like it with just alittle bit more. Not overtaking the tea, though. Yes I know-I’m picky. So shoot me already;)

This is an interesting tea. Might be fun as a iced tea, which I was tempted to make earlier, but I generally prefer to make teas that I havn’t tried out hot 1st.
Ideal if you don’t like a heavy fruit taste. Almost too artificially sweet.

drank Spice of Life by Teavana
220 tasting notes

This is an interesting tea. For those of you who prefer alot of actual tea in their cup, avoid this one….(Though I imagine most of you avoid Teavana like the plague anyways.)
I like this tea so far…only had a few sips. I had meant to concentrate on mostly fruity blends when at Teavana’s but since they were out of this tea the last time I went…I decided to jump on it. It’s nice and sweet, warm…I’d say more of a fall/winter tea, but it’s been threatening to storm all day so, I’ll use that as an excuse to enjoy this. I enjoy this better then the Cha Yen Thai Tea I had earlier, so in comparison I think I’d be more likely to get another bag of this when I run out.

Got this yesterday, along with Fig Rose, Spice to Life and a bag of German Rock Sugar. For fans of Teavana’s Zingiber Ginger Coconut, and the Maharaja Chai Oolong/Tulsi Dosha Chai Rooibos blend, you might want to check this out.

I think I like this tea well enough to finish the bag, but don’t think I’ll buy it again.

drank Tropical Mango by Teajo Teas
220 tasting notes

This was a sample thanks to Teajo Teas. I look forward to being able to buy some tea from them soon:)

Smell wise: I had gotten this on Monday…I think? But hadn’t been able to test it til now. And of course I could not resist opening it and sniffing it. It smells quite good, just like Mangos though I can see why people would smell Peach, too. However, there is an odd underlying smell of chemicalness that puts me off. Kind of reminded me of how oranges can get when they are getting old.

Taste Wise: It’s an interesting tea, not boring. Though I cannot say that I am especially inspired by this tea. But…I am impressed to the extent that I think I will come across teas that I do like even love from this company, most likely in the ‘Around the World’ sampler that I intend on buying in the next few months.

drank To Life by Teavana
220 tasting notes

Another one:)
Meh. It is an ok tea. The taste kind of reminds me of Chateau Blanc, though (Least at the moment.) It tastes better then that one. Would I get this again? At this time I am leaning towards ‘no.’ But as always I could change my mind.

Another that I got today:)

I like this tea that I think I would like finishing this off, but I am not sure I would want to get this again. I have not had dragonfruit so could not say whether this tastes like true dragonfruit or not. Luckily the flavor profile that I tasted tastes very little like most of the other fruity teas. Actually, the only taste that it reminded me of was Citrus Lavender Sage. Which in fact was suggested on the site as a combo.

drank Blackberry Mojito by Teavana
220 tasting notes

Went shopping today at Teavana! There were alot of teas that I’ve been wanting to try for a long while and since who knows when I’ll be able to tea shop next, I mind as well go now! I picked this because the concept of Mojito flavored tea intrigues me, and I wanted a green tea to drink tonight.

Well, I can’t say that I am impressed with this tea. Truthfully I am rather dissapointed. It doesn’t taste horrible, it tastes nice, but the flavor reminds me alot of Teavana’s other fruity teas. (Such as Peach berry Jasmine Sutra) I can’t help but think that with a longer steep that the flavor would come out a bit more, yet it says on the directions to only steep for a minute. Granted, even with that minute when I picked up the lid, the color was already a deep purplish red that looked lovely. While I have the feeling this would taste better iced, I will probably not buy this again.

drank Peachy Keen White by Unknown
220 tasting notes

Got this from my favorite tea store:)

This has become my newest favorite white tea. I have done 2 steeps, (the 2nd is ok, not very impressive, though still some taste.) The peach flavor is subtle but recognizable, (Less so in 2nd steep.) The vanilla bits in the tea make it seem like marshmallow. I most likely would be getting this tea again.

drank Alpine Punch by DAVIDsTEA
220 tasting notes

I enjoyed this enough that I wouldn’t mind to much in finishing this tea, but not enough (Though this could change!) that I would be on fire for keeping it in my cabinet. It reminds me a lot of Oh, Canada (Which I didn’t really care for, but I liked the design concept.) Though Oh Canada I would have a lot of trouble drinking down. I don’t taste any hint of apple or of ginger. Some of cinnamon. Ahh well.

Profile

Bio

Currently 40 years old…

Been a tea lover for most of my life, though it’s only in the past? (5-8 years.) That I’ve been drinking loose leaf tea.

I like mostly blended teas in Black, White, and some Oolong. Sadly not much Green tea that I really like. And of course Herbal.

Rating Guide that I use, though I am not terribly consistent;)

100 Excellent
90-99 Very Good
70-89 Fair
50-69 The only teas that I am interested in in this rating are teas that I can buy locally, such as at a grocery store, fruit market, tea shop, etc. Or is fairly cheap/add on thru a website.
50 and Below No redeeming qualities whatsoever or is too much like a tea that I already have.

Some teas such as Constant Comment by Bigelow I still drink on occasion, it is one of my comfort teas from when I was growing up. Others are Perfect Peach, Mint Medley and Cozy Chamomile.

I am a bookworm, though I also enjoy art journaling/mixed media, making jewelry, spending waaaaaay to much time online…particularly bingeing various tv shows on Netflix and Hulu. Also various forums like this one (On and off.) Quora, Goodreads, Youtube and misc. others. If you see the nicknames Lynxiebrat/Lynxiegrl,Lynxiedove, Zaaron or Sarikcat, then drop me a message:)
