1178 Tasting Notes
I’m not too much of a chai person but I do greatly enjoy s’mores so I decided I’d give this a shot. The first time I made it, I didn’t like it at all. I thought I’d give it a chance again tonight, this time with a bit of sugar and milk. I like it way better now.
I get smoky and cinnamon, a little bit of marshmallow (I think using vanilla sugar helped there) but not so much chocolate. I could eat chocolate with it I suppose, but I already had hot chocolate tonight. Oh well. The milk and sugar makes it less spicy, because it was a bit too peppery for me before that.
It’s hard to make this without getting bits of tea in the cup because it’s ground up so finely. I tried shaking it out before making it but realized I was gonna soon lose all the tea!
I’m still not entirely sold on it, but it’s not awful by any means.
This is different. I let it steep for a really long time because it was pretty blah after 5 minutes. It’s somewhat better now, but nothing jumps out at me about it.
I get the apple and a bit of papaya, the sweetness comes with a beet flavor. I don’t know what the popcorn is adding, I got a big kernel in this cup, and I’m not getting anything toasty or savory from it.
I like this way better cold. I can taste the fruits in here a bit better, but I’m still not entirely a fan of it.
It tastes like very sweet cider. I’m gonna see if it’s any better if it’s cold.
As soon as I opened the packaging, I liked this tea. It has that classic tea smell, earthy, smoky, sweet, all in one.
I love how much this tea tastes like caramel. I go through caramel obsession phases and I am in the midst of one right now.
It’s a good, hearty tea that is absolutely perfect to have with how cold it is here today. Perfectly smooth, just a tad sweet, and not at all bitter.
I still love this tea, and I’m glad it’s been tucked away since they discontinued it. It still tastes just as good as before.
I can’t figure out if I like it better hot or cold. I think it’s sweet enough on its own, and the flavor is so good that I don’t want to ruin it with milk, so I don’t make any sort of fake Thai iced tea.
I can taste everything in here: vanilla, almond, coconut. It doesn’t come off like a cookie like other teas I have of this same flavor, which is nice. Like I said, it’s just sweet enough.
My mom bought some of the more expensive “Thai tea” they introduced after killing this one off but she left it in the bag from the store so I guess I won’t be trying it anytime soon to see if it even tastes the same. I think it smelled spicier than this one so booooo Teavana, this one was good.
I’ve never been much for white tea, but this one has made me think otherwise.
I always thought they were too light and delicate for my liking. Wrong. I steeped this three times, and I could probably keep going.
The first time it was so sweet and it really tasted like cucumber. The second infusion was super flavorful, less cucumber tasting and more floral and all around good. The third I didn’t like as much as the second, but I really, really liked the second steep.
I love all the information given about the tea on the package. I really like this tea.
(a sample was provided to me to review)
This is so good to have along with chocolate that isn’t too sweet. I am not getting too much of the cream cheese flavor this time around, but the sweet fruity flavor of raspberry goes so well with some chocolate cake.
the most notable new thing was that I spilled it on myself. on my birthday. There needs to be some kind of award for that.
Other than that, still love this and it’s toasty goodness.
I bought this from ZenTea’s shop, so it just says “organic Darjeeling,” but on their site it looks to be “Darjeeling Avongrove (organic)” so now I have at least some idea more of the tea. (Although not much since the description just talks about the different kinds of Darjeeling and not about this tea itself. Agh. I should have asked but I had been there to brainstorm and I was too excited by my idea.)
I’m guessing it’s a second flush, because I’ve seen the liquor of first flush Darjeelings and this is much darker, and that Muscat grape flavor is really, really there. This tastes more like grape than teas I’ve had with grapes in them and it’s creeping me out…in a good way.
