drank Strawberry Slender by Teavana
355 tasting notes

I taste absolutely no pu-erh in this, but perhaps that’s not a bad thing. This tastes straight up like strawberries and cream. Actually, it tastes a lot like SpecialTeas’ Strawberry Cream, which is delicious.

Thanks for the sample, wombatgirl!

You know, the names of these teas make Teavana sound like one of those cheap, snake-oil diet plans.

Bethany

Ugh, I know. It’s really unfortunate, because they do have some pretty great teas – but everything is marketed for their supposedly amazing health effects.

Jillian

I’ve heard that too (among other things) about Teavana. I wonder how much of it (if any) is backed up by peer-reviewed scientific research? -And what ever happened to enjoying tea just for its own sake?

Some information I got from Rishi says Pu Erh helps metabolize fatty acids and oily foods, may reduce cholesterol and blood sugar levels, and is cleansing and detoxifying to the blood stream. Unlike a lot of health benefits that are true of all true teas, these seem to be pu erh specific.

I’m (almost) always up for a trade, so comment on a tasting note if you’re interested. I try to keep my cupboard up to date.

I’m a 23 year-old grant writer who loves having a good strong tea by my side as I write. I love The Mountain Goats, cooking, the Steelers, writing, beer, and singing in my office band.
