506 Tasting Notes
I remember when I first ordered this tea and I couldn’t drink enough of it. Now that I am used to its place in my cupboard I am not that desperate to have it ALL THE TIME, but I still brew a cup pretty regularly. I love the apple and cinnamon combined with the toasty notes from the popped rice. It is festive and wintery, but also just plain delicious. I adore this blend and I think it will continue to be one of my favourites!
Took this to work for a sugar hit today. I do love this tea for its pure caramelly sweetness. It is not fussy, it take boiling water, a bit of sugar, and a normal steep time and turns it into something that tastes like it should have a whole lot more calories than it does. It was the decadent tasting tea I needed this morning!
I think I might have bought this tea, put it away, and forgot to try it. That’s embarrassing… Oops. Oh well, I found it this evening and brewed up a cup. I think I picked this up based on my love of Pink Passionfruit and Guava Cadabra, this is neither. Nor is it a perfect fusion of the two. It is, however, an alright tea on its own.
Like most Teavana blends, I get very little white tea, but the fruit flavours are nicely blended and the overall flavour is mellow and reminiscent of tropical fruits. I would drink this again, but it is no replacement for my Pink Passionfruit love. Nor do I think it would cold steep particularly well actually… But it is a nice cup on its own, and worth a steep once in a while.
This tea surprised me, it was actually really good. I am not a huge mate fan, but this one was more than okay, it was delightful. I tried it cold steeped from the fridge. What I liked most about this tea was the subtlety of the mate. The dominant flavour, to me, was definitely the melon, the mate just served to enhance the melon notes. I was really impressed with this tea, I am going to have to give it a shot brewed hot as well.
I am really falling in love with this tea, and green tea in general. It is not really a strong mango tea, but there are definite hints of mango throughout the tea. I think that they really got the idea right with a green tea with just the suggestion of mango. I find it responds best for me with a lower temp and a short steep time. I am enjoying my cup this evening for sure!
I gave this a try today after the less than stellar experience I had with Lime Chiffon. What a difference a bit of sugar and a short steep time did for this tea! I can taste that the flavour is similar to Lime Chiffon and I got stronger notes of lemon and cream in this tea. The rooibos base was there, but it was not unpleasant. Overall, it was a really nice cup of tea!
I liked this tea, but I did find the rooibos base to be a little strong for my tastes. I have such a love hate with rooibos, I like it, but it needs to have a good strong flavour other than the rooibos base. I think next time I am going to try this with a pinch of sugar and see if that coaxes out the lime a little more.
