I’m not a big mint tea fan but this tea caught be off guard. It may have converted me to trying more minty teas in the future. It has a very specific flavor and it’s a tea that knows exactly what it is. Very sharp minty flavor but not too overwhelming. It was quite refreshing and I enjoyed it both hot and over ice. This company just continues to surprise me and I have yet to try a bad tea from them. Highly recommended!
27 Tasting Notes
I’ve tried a lot of senchas and I really enjoy the subtle green tea flavor. This one is on par with the others that I’ve tried. Nothing quite pops out to differentiate it but it is definitely a solid sencha green.
Finally got my first order of Teaves tea in the mail. I ordered this peach oolong as well as a sencha reserve and I have to say that both of them were pleasant surprises. I don’t like to try new companies often because I don’t like change, BUT I think I should change that about myself. I gave this company a try because the site looked appealing and I am interested to see what other companies have to offer. This peach oolong tea is the best one yet. Offers a great balance of fruit flavor to tea flavor ratio and I’m a sucker for oolong’s and peach so they had me from the start. Packaging is interesting and unlike any I’ve seen yet. It’s a very clean and simple look with all the necessary directions and information that should be on a package. I’m definitely checking them out again to see what else they have to offer. So far so good!
I enjoyed this tea cold over hot. It has a very tropical and clean taste that’s not too overpowering even though the aroma is very strong. It has a natural sweetness provided by the pineapples and has a nice light greenish yellow color. Adding a little bit of sugar did the trick for me but it can definitely be enjoyed without any sweeteners as well. If you like green teas and amazing tropical smells and flavors, I would recommend this tea for you.
I tried this cold brewed and it turned out okay. It wasn’t too tart or too sweet but I felt maybe it was lacking in overall taste. I guess that’s what cold brewing does, but I did still enjoy it. If you enjoy a light tasting fruit tea this ones for you. If you like bold strong flavors you may not enjoy this.
I tried a sample of this as an iced tea and it was surprising. I didn’t get too much strawberry flavor but I got more of the cinnamon which gave it a root beer-like taste. In that sense I did enjoy it because I like root beer, but for those of you who don’t, you might want to stay away from this tea or drink it with an open mind. Don’t expect an overwhelming strawberry flavor.
Received a sample of this tea and decided to try it iced. First I hot brewed it, added a bit of sugar, let it cool down and let it chill over night. I was happy with the results. I was hoping for an iced coffee like flavor and it really delivered. You really all the flavors in one sip and it’s delightful. You get the nuttiness of the pistachio and a hint of honey after taste. I added a drop of milk and it felt just like having an iced coffee on a hot day. I would recommend this tea to those who have similar flavor palettes and enjoy a nutty and sweet black tea.
My first impression of the aroma was that it smelled exactly like fruity pebbles cereal. This really excited me but as I took a sip the hibiscus turned out to be a little too overwhelming for me. The tartness came on a bit strong and I think I’m starting to realize that I’m not a big fan of this flavor profile. By the way, I cold brewed this so I’m not sure if that has anything affect on it. It still smells nice but I don’t think I can handle the tartness.
A very interesting tea to say the least. I love the sweet caramel popcorn flavor mixed with the apple and maple but I agree that the tea itself is a bit underwhelming in the flavor department. Nonetheless, I enjoyed this tea and would recommend it to any lover of movies, popcorn or both! It is at least worth a try and please don’t let the light flavor scare you away as you can just add more tea to bolster the flavor or steep a tad bit longer. This seemed to do the trick for me. Sweet and satisfying!
I thought I’d give Tazo another tasting but this will probably be the last time I do so. Definitely not my cup of tea. The theme for all of their teas seems to be tartness or bitterness in this case with beautiful coloring and not much else. This morning blend has bold flavor, a bit too bold for me and the addition of milk, honey or sugar does help but I don’t want to drown out my tea flavor with such additions. I wouldn’t recommend this tea to anyone with similar taste as me. For everyone else, check more reviews and be cautious.
I’ve heard of Cherry Blossom season in East Asia and about the beautiful festivals. I believe it’s around this time of year so i thought it would be perfect to snag one of these and try it out. As all the other reviews say, GREAT balance. With two or more distinct flavors I think it’s key to get a good balance between them and this tea does so in a great way. Sweet and tarty mixed with a great floral scent, for a split second, you feel like you’re experiencing the Cherry Blossom festival first hand. Loving the balance of flavors and would recommend this tea to everyone to at least try and judge for yourself, especially if you’re a fan of cherry blossom tea. The best one I’ve tried so far.
Delicious, smooth, creamy, flavorful. There are many words to describe this tea but I’m having trouble finding the perfect one that describes all of these wonderful flavors. I agree with some of the other reviews that I was a bit nervous and worried as to how all of these flavors would blend together but it does masterfully. I love a good oolong and let me say, this is a good oolong. Silk, that’s the word :)
I found this EG to be quite delightful. The hint of bergamot adds a great quality and scent to this tea that is quite refreshing. I usually enjoy my EG’s with some milk and sugar but this one I found to be quite good on its own as well. If you’re a fan of EG’s you should consider this tea, it might just become your favorite.
I read the reviews for this tea and had a good laugh and thought to myself, “it can’t be THAT bad can it?” For a tea that was this unanimously disliked, I should have trusted my fellow steepsters. After drinking a cup I felt almost ashamed of myself for trying it. Tartness and citrus to the max. I reviewed Tazo’s passion fruit tea last week and thought that was too sour. If you’re into this kind of taste, be my guest but be cautious and make sure to read all the reviews to get a better idea of what you’re buying.
I found the tartness in this tea to be quite overwhelming and too sour for my taste. Otherwise, it has great fruit flavors but I agree with the others about the hibiscus being a bit too much for me to completely enjoy it.
Sweet Lychee taste with a touch of smooth vanilla. Has an almost creamy smoothness to it and is rich in flavor. I agree, that those who do not like their tea to be too sweet may want to stray away from this one but all others I recommend!
Delicious smooth creamy refreshing taste. I preferred it over ice with added condiments such as milk and sugar but has a good natural straight taste as well. Something I could see myself drinking for a long time and never really lose interest. Highly recommended.
The deliciously sweet flavor of mango comes through with the signature bold flavor that is black tea. I found this tea to be very enjoyable and similar to peach zinger in many ways. I recommend this tea for tea drinkers who enjoy fruit flavors mixed with their dark tea.
Serves as a great tea for jolting your senses but the overwhelming flavor was too strong for my taste. I appreciate the aroma and tons of flavor in each sip, but I prefer lighter tasting teas. If you love strong, bold, spiced flavors then this tea is perfect for you.
I found this tea to be equally refreshing both hot and iced. It contains a sweet peach flavor with a bold kick of ginger. Makes for a great dessert tea or an early morning tea as well.
Has a smooth, creamy, yet light flavor. A bit disappointing and just an average green tea.
A premium green tea that must be tasted at the very least by any tea lover. Offers a deliciously subtle flavor that can be both simple and complex.
A bit bland and disappointing, but I still found it enjoyable because of my love for peaches. Adding sugar and drinking over ice is my preference.
Emits a strong aroma and an equally strong flavor. This tea is refreshing and bold. It makes a great summer drink on ice with additions of mint leaves and/or sugar.
