drank S'mores Chai by 52teas
254 tasting notes

The leaves have a light spicy sweet aroma that intrigues me. Because the spice is one of the first to catch, I suspect the s’mores taste might get overwhelmed.

And I was right, as the spicy chai flavor is above all the taste in this blend. It is not a bad flavor, a sweet and creamy variation with a smoky touch.

The marshmallow and others are subtle, but you catch them in different sips, as the spice still does overwhelm.

Nonetheless, for chai lovers, this is a great variation.

drank Coconut Cream Pie by 52teas

The aroma right when you open the bag is mind-blowingly delicious coconut, I will instantly like this.

The first few sips give me that light creamy pie taste with a subtle flavor of coconut, although I would prefer more coconut than pie.

Nonetheless, this is a great tea for any time of day, as it is light and delicious.

drank Almond Biscotti by Teavana

2nd steep of last of the leaves, with no rock sugar.

It is still buttery, but because of the 2nd steep, it loses some flavor.

Despite, it is still delicious.

The last of my first bag from Teavana, more is on the way.

I believe the last bit was a little under 2 teaspoons, as I wanted the flavor to overflow this morning.

Very buttery, still very delicious.

Today, the brew is satisfyingly spicy, with a still strong aroma of pepper and cardamon.

I love when this tea has a bit of a bite to it, it gives me that extra kick either in the mornings or afternoons.

Very fruity, you can barely taste the white tea.

Although the citrus flavor is present, it is not a typical orange flavor, more grapefruit, which doesn’t deter from the deliciousness overall.

This was a sample that came with my Teavana orders, which included rock sugar, so it was easy steeping right out of the bag.

Just realized I’ve been oversteeping this tea, as it is flavored white tea, it should be steeped for 2 minutes instead of 3.

It is less bitter, a bit lighter on spice, but the flavor is still bright and full, and this is still my favorite chai blend.

The blend of spices and nuts tell me “holiday drink” the more I sip this.

I may have to buy more for winter.

Beautifully sweet and fruity, the cranberry and peach is very bright and stands out with its similarly sweet aroma.

It is surprisingly sweet enough to not require rock sugar, as I have done adding just under a teaspoon. Next time, I will try it without sugar.

drank Cacao Mint Black by Teavana

A very rich and very nutty tea, with a slight refreshing mint.

The chocolate taste does not overtake the overall richness of the tea, very balanced.

I added more rock sugar than I usually add to other teas, approximately 2 teaspoons.
