7 Tasting Notes
This blend was put together for me by one of the Teavana girls. I’m one of the regulars in there and she thought I’d like to try something new. I was planning on getting the Blackberry, but I was planning on getting it alone. She thought it would be fun to blend it with the Watermelon Mint. I love that flavor by itself. Those two flavors together make an awesome pair. It tastes very fruity in the beginning, I can really taste the blackberries. And there is a nice clean finish at the end. It is very refreshing, especially on a hot day. The flavor really comes through with some rock sugar. Don’t steep it too long though, or it will become bitter. About 2 minutes at 175 degrees is perfect. For iced tea about 50 seconds. This tea is absolutely delicious!
This has to be one of my favorite teas of all time. I think the peach, raspberries, and blackberries go really well together. And I love the refreshing mint at the end. It’s very flavorful, very fruity, and very light. It’s very pleasant on the pallet and is even better with some rock sugar. It’s a treat to drink any time of the day. The only thing I dislike about this tea is that they discontinued it! This tea was absolutely perfect!
I found this tea in my cabinet a little while ago still in its bag and I totally forgot I bought it. I was actually deciding whether I should keep it or throw it away. I had no idea when I bought it, if I had bought it online or in the store so I just decided I’ll smell it first to see if it’s still good. It smelled ok, so then I decided I’ll make a little tester glass to see what it tastes like. It actually didn’t taste that bad. It was very clean and fresh and had a nice buttery aftertaste. It’s very light bodied and can be enjoyed by anyone. Just be careful not to oversteep it or it will get bitter very easily.
This is a blend I created because I had a canister of herbal Berry Kiwi Colada Tea and a canister of green Sakura Allure green tea. Seeing as herbal tea isn’t technically a tea, it’s just a blend of herbs and fruits; I wanted to put real tea into it. So I mixed some of my green tea into it. It actually tastes pretty good. It’s very fruity, and by adding some rock sugar to it, it really gives all the different fruits a chance to shine. It’s definitely one of the better blends I’ve made. I recommend it to everyone who likes fruit teas. It’s not too strong and it’s not too weak.
