drank My Morning Mate by Teavana
12 tasting notes

I used a solid tablespoon of tea, and I feel like this is very weak in flavor. I didn’t want to over steep since the blend contains black tea, but maybe I need to do it longer because I find this tea incredibly underwhelming.

When I smelled it at Teavana it had these magical chocolate and caramel notes to it that once brewed seem to come through on the nose, but lack in the taste.

It’s overall not something that I would purchase again. For Teavana mates the Samurai Chai and Rasperbby Riot are MUCH better.

Bio

I don’t regard myself to be a fine tea connoisseur in any way. I’ll drink anything once, and if it is sweet (I mean Southern sweet) chances are I’ll drink it more than once.

That being said, I can taste the difference between “cheap” and “expensive” teas, and tea made in a paper cup versus in glass/ceramic/whatnot. I frequently try different brands of tea and my tastes do change over time.

I’m also currently pregnant, and if there is anything pregnant women are notorious for it is having bizarre tastes, though really the only change I’ve noticed is that all bleu cheese tastes sour to me. (^_^;;)

I do try all tea unsweetened first, but I am not afraid of sweeteners. Most of the time I use agave nectar, but will use honey (raw or processed), sugar, xylitol, stevia, or most anything relatively natural that I can get my hands on.
