370 Tasting Notes
I just brewed this before I hit the airwaves. It hit my palette and I noticed familiar flavors to me….definitely the lemongrass, and cinnamon….but what I really noticed is that it reminded me of Tazo(Starbucks) Passion tea. In addition the Pu-Erh. Quite enjoyable this time around especially after chinese for lunch. Got 2 good steepings out of it.
I decided to try this while my future wife and I were out. Overall I didn’t think it was too bad. As I sipped it more on the way home I realized how much it tasted like the Yunnan black tea that I got at the local Asian supermarket…..except there for .75 cents an ounce. It’s good but I’d rather save the four dollars an ounce for something else.
more back logging I tried this one because I liked the Strawberry blend that Teavana has. I gotta say that this one tastes funny to me. I can tell they use the chai blend that they put in the Samarui Chai and smell delightful but in a cup it’s just ok I was hoping for more Pu-Erh taste to come out….still pretty good.
As a coffee drinker I love this tea. The hints of cocoa and vanilla are amazing. I love that Teavana added the Assam to this blend. Being a former cigar afficianodo this tea reminds me a little of a black and mild in a good way. This has been my morning starter at least for the past 2 week.
Had this after dinner tonight. The it’s like an Andes mint in you cup. The aroma is fantastic. The chocolate is the first thing you taste and then whoa! Hello mint. You could. definitely use this tea to replace sweets. I like it. I steeped it a second time and added some Pu-Erh that I have. The chocomint flavor still was strong along with the Pu-Erh.
