42 Tasting Notes
An excellent product. This is my first of such a thing. Bought it back when Teaopia wasn’t Teavana. It works great, and is a perfect addition to my loose leaves collection. Easier to use when steeping tea for more than one cup. Also, pretty to watch the leaves float around and brew. I have never tried to wash it in the dishwasher, but so far it’s decent to wash by hand. Not sure if it comes apart completely to wash one by one pieces (been too nervous to even try that!)
I feel weird that I enjoy this tea so much because it’s not my usual brand, but I have bought it back when I was grocery shopping in college. It was on sale, I needed a new tea fast, convenient, and sounded like a great blend. IT WAS DELICIOUS! Probably much better than I expected because I didn’t have such high hopes for it, but it had a great balance to it. Great chocolate and mint ratio.
I enjoyed this tea, however I think because of the big hype it was getting from my friends that I had my expectations too high and didn’t think it was all that it seemed. I agree with some other reviews on here, that it just doesn’t have the unique flavour I wanted. Tasted similar to others, but still good tasting.
It has a great little kick to it, which some may or may not like (depending on your taste). What’s great for me is that it’s not an over powering taste. With all the great ingredients steeping in the cup, every flavour seems to be at the perfect balance. This blend is pure whole leaf, that has it’s own unique scent, taste and personality. The anticipation of taking the first beauty sip while it steeps is invigorating!
When I first received this tea, I did not know what to expect. I have never sampled a health + beauty tea before, but was eager to give it a try. It was an excellent cup of tea to have first thing in the morning to help clear your mind and get you ready for the day ahead of you. I imagine that their Nightly Beauty tea would be perfect to clear your mind of wanders right before bed for a restful sleep.
I am very excited to let my boyfriend give it a try. He’s big on drinking health related products and I just know this will be the perfect cuppa for him in the morning. BijaBody also has a man’s tea, so if all goes well I may give him that for Christmas!
I was fortunate enough to try Utopia’s rich and tasteful blend of Chocolate Strawberry Saffron tea. It’s loose Indian black tea leaves are the perfect match for the dark chocolate, luscious strawberries, white chocolate chips and aromatic saffron.
The moment I opened the package I began to smell the sweet, and beautiful aroma of the exquisite blend. Combining the succulent taste of sweet strawberries and rich, creamy dark & white chocolate helps the tea release it’s calming sensation to the indulger.
I prepared the tea with no milk and no sugar because of it’s fresh sweet-floral, berry flavor, smooth and sugary texture; I found it didn’t need anything added to it. The tea already has “the taste of perfection!”
The tea leaves were arranged in paper tea bag that was nice prepared by Utopia Tea. Irish Breakfast is an organic tea that some coffee lovers may enjoy. If you’re into a tea that is a bit stronger than usual and enjoy a nice wakening then I would suggest this one. I was iffy at trying it at first because I never had good experiences with Irish flavoured products, but to my surprise, it was actually a smooth, and refreshing tea. I prepared the tea with milk and a hint of sugar because of the bold taste it contains. The bold taste helps enrich the flavour and is a great way to start off an early morning. Also, because of the bold taste with the hint of strong flavours I was able to reuse my tea bag for a second time and enjoy another warm cup. It’s usually not my “cup of tea” to reuse a tea bag or any tea leaves but this tea is worth the bargain!
Romantic. Invigorating. Fantasy.
My top three words to describe this pot of green tea. Steep this tea with a loved one. Enjoy the invigorating taste. & escape to your fantasy. Love Spell is a mixture of papaya chunks, coconut chips, red sugar hearts, pineapple bits, safflower petals, and fruit flavours. The appearance of the tea is simple with a hint of love from it’s heart shaped red sugar.
In my opinion, how a tea smells will let you know how it will taste. When opening the package for the first time there was a blissful scent escaping. I thought right away that this tea would be an exciting experience for the much needed taste I desired. I’ll admit, I thought it smelled a lot better than the actually taste itself, but I was still amazed at this lovely green tea combination.
To prepare the tea, I steeped the loose tea leaves directly in warm water for about 3 minutes in my Tea Master also from Teaopia. I feel this allowed the leaves to release more flavours and give a richer blend. Typically, green tea is drank with nothing extra added into it. Love spell has the perfect sweetness already because of the sugar hearts that cast a spell for you to fall in love with the tropical beverage. A bonus feature for this tea is that if a hot drink loses its appeal for you during the hot summer season, this one would be delightful chilled over some ice with a few slices of fresh fruit floating in the pitcher.
I seem to feel like my afternoon yesterday became a bit better after indulging in some love spell. It had the perfect hint of energy to provide the consumer with it’s fruity flavours. Drinking the tea helps you sit back and think of a hot vacation getaway on a Caribbean island. A perfect time to daydream and visit your fantasy place. Only to step back into reality after the last drop in your teacup.
