576 Tasting Notes
Due to the price, I have tried unsuccessfully to create my own blend similar to this, but have just given up; I purchase this without hesitation on the price tag. This heavenly blend of chai mate and white chai is out-of-this-world! A perfect blend of autumn spices, this tea can be re-steeped. I love strong tea, so I often let this steep until I finish the cup. The result is a wonderfully spicy last gulp. This is my go-to tea; if I’m not sure what tea I’m in the mood to enjoy, I reach for this. It’s good iced, although best hot.
Christmas Eve Herbal is the perfect compromise of spice and mint, with a little citrus. The aroma and taste do remind me of Christmas; the tea is all-season, though. Brew a cup in July to reminisce about the holiday season!
I LOVE the tea bag version of this tea, but not the loose tea kind. The loose tea offers up a tart, hibiscus aroma that, in my opinion, doesn’t blend well with the other Christmas flavors of spice and mint.
I rated this tea based on the tea bagged version – which is the perfect compromise of spice and mint, with a little cit
This is a decent green tea blend, good enough but not my favorite. I find the flavors (mint, lemongrass and green tea) are not properly balanced – the mint is too strong, most often. While I enjoy mint teas, I would have preferred a subtle mint taste blending with the green tea. Still, I’d buy it again.
Teavana’s Moroccan Mint is one of my favorite morning blends. The minty and smoky flavor, when properly brewed, is refreshing and pleasant – just the right medley of mint and gunpowder green. If you like a stronger tea (like me) I add a heaping teaspoon per 8 oz of water and brew almost three minutes. I do recommend being careful about the temperature. I guesstimate well below boiling; that is how I enjoy it. The flavor is uplifting and refreshing – even as a hot tea in the heat of summer. This is delicious iced as well.
I love the subtle cocoa aroma of this tea. Black Dragon Pearl brews up strong but can be re-steeped (re-stept?) if needed. A pinch of sugar or Splenda, in my case, finishes this full-bodied flavor.
