576 Tasting Notes
This is a decent example of green tea lightly flavored with apricot. This smells as good as it tastes, which is pretty darn close. It’s not one of my favorites, but I do enjoy the pleasant taste of juicy apricots mixed with quality green tea (which tastes just slightly grassy). I always recommend to brew green tea less than other teas, so I never brew this longer than 2 1/2-3 mins. I do like the decaf factor, especially in the afternoons.
I love the Constant Comment flavor – it’s my go-to bagged tea. I love the medley of spices and orange-y citrus. The aroma is so soothing and reminds me of spending time with my Oma and mom. I do tend to enjoy the black tea version better as it offers up a more robust flavor profile, but I’m trying to drink more (healthy) green tea so this satisfies too.
I truly wanted to like this tea – after all I love cocoa and spice.
BUT – and this is a WARNING for fellow migraine sufferers – this blend gave me a headache within a few minutes of the first sip! And it didn’t even taste that great, so it wasn’t worth the pain.
The cocoa flavor was far too weak for me, and the spices seemed…off. Not as fragrant and not the spices I would have blended with cocoa (like perhaps more cinnamon instead). Overall, I’m not happy about this purchase. I donated the bags to my office.
This is a wonderful marriage of spicy licorice and soothing mint – I love it! I stumbled across this one by accident. I bought it my mistake at the organic food market thinking it was another one I really liked. Sure, I could have returned it – but I’m adventurous. I’m glad I took the risk, this is one tea I hate being without!
Sweet strawberry bursts with tart but tender lemon for a welcoming tribute to a summertime classic. I enjoy this iced most of all but is decent hot as well. However, please note: you must be very very very careful about how long you blend this! Too much, even slightly over the recommended amount and your cup will be bitter and sad. But if you can brew in the sweet spot you’ll be treated to a satisfying cup. YUMMY!
I love a great jasmine tea and this one delivers! Teavana blends these pearls with rooibos tropica for one of their most popular blends, but I enjoy brewing these little gems alone. In fact, these pearls work well with other teas if you want to custom blend your own selections. I’ve paired with peach, mango and strawberry teas (both black and green) and loved each creation.
