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 enjoy drinking tea at the end of the day, so I aim for caffeine-free teas or herbal tisanes. This and the Sleepytime Extra are my favorite selections, especially if I’m not sure what tea mood I’m in. I love the light, comforting flavors and it truly does help me wind down.
I love this tea year round – it’s spicy and minty, aromatic and flavorful. I tend to stock up around the holidays so I can enjoy the tea throughout the year. These make great gift ideas too; I got my mom hooked last year.
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.
Plum Harvest is a fruity tea – which isn’t usually my cup of tea (lol, sorry). It packs a powerful punch in the cup and is pretty sweet alone.
I highly recommend blending with cinnamon black tea – or stir with a cinnamon stick. The blend of juicy, fruity plum and spicy cinnamon is a real treat!
I enjoy sipping Cinnamon Plum because it features right blend of cinnamon spice and hearty plum. It’s a bit too much in the summertime, though. And I don’t enjoy iced. This is a nice variety during the holiday season/winter months, because it packs a lot of flavor in a rich base.
