576 Tasting Notes
I made Swampwater iced cubes…and added them to a glass of plain water, one of Swampwater, and one of my lemonwater (a packet of True Lemon and Splenda) and the results were phenomenal! Each tasted good, although the Double Swampwater blend was best. I ate some of the iced cubes by themselves too. So good – I highly recommend!
This one is really fun. It’s spicy and sweet, and not too much of either. Using green tea as the base helps with the flavor profile – I can taste both distinctly. I’m using this as my wake-up cuppa. I barely slept last night thanks to migraines (one went away and then another took its place), so I need all the pick-me-up I can get today!
Made this the “real” way to make iced tea (with ice instead of cold brew). I made this before Swampwater and I gotta say, when comparing it with that one, I had to drop the rating a bit. It seemed too tart for me; I ended up adding some Splenda, which I hate to do, but it was either sacrifice my tea principles or dump it…and I couldn’t bear to dump the little pistol-shaped ice cubes. Turns out the only tea I can drink multiple cups of from Teavana and not lose total respect for the company is the chai blend.
Tried this iced yesterday; the “real” way to make iced tea, no cold brewing. ;) I ended up drinking about a gallon of it! I really do love this tea, from flavor to liquor. Best of all, you don’t need to add sweetener, which I had to do when I brewed up the Strawberry Lemonade/Blueberry Bliss combo earlier yesterday.
Currently I am making Swampwater iced cubes – they are freezing in my fridge while I’m at work. My plan is to make a super concentrated cuppa Swampwater. Will report in tomorrow… :)
I got this tea after a fellow customer at Voila told me how awesome it was. “You just want to rub it all over your body,” she said. At first I thought, OK, weirdo, but then I brewed it up myself and I see what she means!
This is in-your-face mango and citrus bliss. I ate some of the mango pieces before brewing – OK, now I’m the weirdo. Dry, this tea smells like sunshine. Steeped, this will knock your freakin’ socks off.
I would rub this over my body, take a bath in it, name my first born after it. It is so yummy – citrusy, mango-y, smooth, sweet and utterly satisfying. If you want a mango tea, you really don’t – you want this tisane. If you want an afternoon tea, you really want this. Trust me, it’s phenomenal. Delish. Worth going to work to enjoy (I left my tin there). So, so, so yummy!
I finished the cuppa before I finished this posting. Seriously.
As a paranormal investigator and a fan of the paranormal, of course I had to get this one!
Love the blend of vanilla and mint – one of my favorite combos. This is light and airy (ghost-like, if you will), but still very flavorful and tasty. The vanilla has a very marshmallow quality to it versus a vanilla bean flavor, which works well with all the other flavors you’ve got going on in this tea. I taste peppermint and spearmint, but I did just have a peppermint cuppa so perhaps I’m in that mindset… none of the flavors are overpowering, which is perfect with the veggie green tea flavor.
I’d love for this to be a permanent 52Teas flavor…or at least in the Christmas collection (hint hint, Frank). This is right up there with Pancake Breakfast. Love it! :)
Got this with my Graveyard Mist purchase because you can’t buy just one of Frank’s gems! :) This is a really unique flavor. I taste the lemon and the marshmallow, but it’s not an artificial of either, which is nice. I wonder how this is iced?
The kitten on the package is adorable too. Makes me miss my kitty-cat, Reesi. We put her to sleep in 2006 after 15 years of awesomeness. Seriously, she was the best cat ever. She’s spoiled us for other cats! Anyhoo, she would probably enjoy this…or at least enjoy a snack while I enjoyed this cuppa. :)
It’s always nice to be the first to review a tea, so you’re not swayed by any descriptions from previous sippers. :) Still I’m surprised that I’m the first to log this one!
Mint is typically an afternoon enjoyment, because I blend it with my herbals. But with the Assam black tea I gave this a try. Went terrific with a bagel!
I only taste peppermint and a black tea base. There are supposedly other flavors, according to the ingredients, but it’s a bagged tea so I don’t think it’s high quality enough to allow all the flavors to mingle and dance. No worries, though, as a peppermint black tea this is terrific.
