drank Blackberry Mojito by Teavana
576 tasting notes

This is another tea from Teavana that I tweak. I love the base of tart (but not bitter) blackberry and the subtle taste of lime and mint. But I go one step further and add more spearmint. It’s a sweeter mint and blends well with the base. I love bold blackberry and mighty mint.

That being said, this is still one of my favorite blends from Teavana. A nice flavor hot and even better iced.

As am I. I will have to see if my local shop has any as I can never catch it online. My husband loves this one. I will have to try with the added spearmint as that sounds like a nice addition.

@JoeCool – I just sent your package out, but I could mail you a sample if you want. Just let me know. I’m always happy to share. @Meghann: I can send you my tweaked version if you’d like… I’m not trying to be pushy or anything but I know how expensive teas can get… especially if you don’t like one kind and it collects dust in your cabinet.

Meghann M

That would be wonderful, YUM! Let me know if there is anything I can send you.

Oh that would be awesome if you don’t mind. I just got another blend that I think you might enjoy! I’ll send it out today for you! Awesome!

Bio

Hello fellow tea fans!
I’ve been a tea enthusiast for years but just recently started brewing my own. I’ve created some blends, and enjoy researching about new teas. I combined my love of tea and writing to create a tea-devoted blog, Keen Tea Thyme. I have been writing for most of my life and am a former journalist with a degree in Communications and Social Psychology, and a minor in Writing. Journalism is in my blood, so that means I’m inquisitive by nature, will double-check sources and/or get a second opinion as needed, but also fair and balanced in my reviews. If my reviews seem more positive, energetic and have high ratings, it’s because I love tea. :)

If you are a tea company, I’d love to review some your tea! Free samples are always welcome so I can fully enjoy the freshest selections. I’m also open to tea swaps as I always have too many teas on hand to drink & would love to share with other tea enthusiasts! :)

My Simple Rating Scale (as of Feb. 2011)
>50: I’m NOT a fan. I could barely finish the cup, if I even did. I wouldn’t even recommend this to my worst enemy. Not worth my time nor yours.

51-65: Good aroma, good flavor. Just nothing pops to give the tea that special kick. Recommended to try; our tasting palates differ.

66-79: Yes, finally, tea – unique flavor profiles, great aroma & flavor. Recommended to try; our tasting palates differ.

80-99: These are cupboard essentials – delicious, aromatic and perfect everyday teas. Re-steepable (beyond at least one steeping). Highly recommended, fun for all ages.

100: These are my favorites, the ones I would take with me if stranded on a desert island. Beyond Highly Recommended.
