2 Tasting Notes

99

As I sit here lovingly sipping my third cup of this today I wonder why I originally rated this a 92. Changed the rating to a 99 because this is now my favorite tea. I drink 2-3 cups every morning and love it so much that when I traveled to my sister’s this past wknd it is the one I had to take with me. The caramel/molasses flavors in this tea make it wonderfully sweet all on it’s own. Adding just a touch of milk to it gives it a creaminess that makes it just perfect.

Two of my nieces turned out to be big tea drinkers-something I never knew before I really got “into” tea because it had really never come up. One of them totally fell for this tea and is now interested in loose leaf teas as well. The other….well, she’s still on her Bigelow bag tea that she has been downing as a pregnancy craving…lol.

In any case, I will NEVER be without this tea unless they stop selling it. It is so good I can’t even “hoard” it and “save it for special occasions” like I usually do when I find a really good one I love. I am addicted to it so if I run out I’ll just get more. LOL.

This is one of my favorite teas. I bought it because my oldest son and I share a love of fine teas and he requested it so I surprised him with a pot of it for our weekly tea time one evening. We both fell in love. We drink this tea without adding anything.

Flavors: Butter, Honey

I can’t get my youngest ones(4 year old twins) to like any of it-though I keep trying. :)

if you like teavana maybe try the coco caramel sea salt blend? our kids love it (even though they’re older) and it’s caffeine free so bedtime isn’t hampered!! lol.

I actually have some of that. Never tried giving it to the kids. Maybe that would be a good after dinner “treat” for them. I’ll try it. :)

Profile

Bio

I’m a mom of 4 boys- 20,13,&4 yr old twins, an RN, an animal fanatic, breeder of show rats, and lover of all things created.

Having just started getting into tea, I am excited about trying all new flavors and kinds so I have kept Teavana busy with orders and have just started branching out to other companies.

Tea profile: I LOVE black teas most of all, but I also like flavored whites and oolongs. Not overly fond of green tea unless it’s highly flavored. Usually only add a TINY bit of German rock sugar to my tea, but only after I’ve tasted a new one and decided on it. Only add milk to English breakfast tea- which I LOVE in the morning.

My tea rating is:

95-100 The absolute best stuff I have had. I will always keep this available- although may be stingy about drinking it for fear of running out…lol.

90-94 Excellent. Will have to keep in stock as well as a staple of my tea drinking experiences.

80-89 Very good. One that hangs on the “border” in between being a favorite and one that is just “liked”.

70-79 Good. Might buy again if in the mood for it.

60-69 Fair. Wouldn’t pass up a free sample, but probably wouldn’t buy again.

Below 60 Fail. These are ones that are so bad I would never waste my time, money, or tastebuds on them again.
