9 Tasting Notes

68

Not a bad tea, got from a Chaplain’s care package here in Afghanistan.

A little bit of sweetener makes it a pleasantly fruity taste.

If you are on the go, it’s worth it— if not, try Anjou Pear-adaise from Teavana instead!

This is a great, refreshing tea. Good to drink hot, let cool down just a little, or completely iced!

Nice fruity taste. There is a lot going on with it and suprisingly, the second brew is almost as good as the first!

drank Almond Biscotti by Teavana
9 tasting notes

One of my favorite teas from Teavana. It’s yummy smelling and tasting. A little bit of sugar is great but vanilla creamer is also great. So many ways to prepare. I’ve been drinking this tea for a good while now and had not noticed the cinnamon notes in the tea. I guess I just accepted the almond and moved on.

The second brew, though a little weaker is still pretty good.

I put in a little more than one teaspoon per water, just for that second brew.

2 teaspoons of this plus 1 teaspoon of pear luna and body +mind blend with a little bit of sugar!

Very good way to use these teas— don’t think I’ll buy any of them again, but blended they are very nice. The Jasmine is no longer overwhelmingly strong and the pear luna seems to have a better flavor when blended!

drank Pear Luna by Teavana
9 tasting notes

I wanted a tea that I could drink at night to unwind and fall asleep after drinking. The girl at the store swore by this one, but I’m not digging it. It’s a strong flavor, but it doesn’t seem to be pear flavored. It smells great, but it doesn’t taste that way. I mixed it with Body + Mind and it’s drinkable, just not something I will be buy again.

Very soothing tea with just a bit of sugar to bring out those tropical tastes.

Maybe it’s boring, but I kind of like it that way sometimes!

Scary by itself. Much too strong of a flavor. Will be trying again soon.

drank Haute Chocolate by Teavana
9 tasting notes

At first taste, we thought it was dirty dishwater. It is a very dark color and does appear to have some chocolate in it, but the chocolate flavor is not very strong. The other tastes seem to overpower it.

Second taste of it (after a 24 hour break from this tea!) we made another pot. I tried sugar and some french vanilla creamer and it’s actually very good. Similiar to the idea of a chai latte. Just, not quite. I’m a little ambivalent, but no longer think it’s dirty dishwater!

Profile

Bio

I like drinking tea but I might not always sounds “smart” or sophisticated about it.

I must admit I still drink coffee too. I don’t have one type of tea that I like more than another. I might drink fruit one day, chai the next, and black on the final day.

I love being outside and being active, but I also love hanging out being a homebody.

Oh, and I’m in Afghanistan right now :)
