249 Tasting Notes

drank Almond Biscotti by Teavana
249 tasting notes

This has quickly become my favorite morning tea.

Very buttery, lightly sweet, and extremely dreamy; a perfect description would be like drinking a delicious cookie.

Because of the quality of the blend, you can’t really taste the black tea over the almond flavor, which I add just under a teaspoon of rock sugar to maintain sweetness.

drank Toasted Almond by Sanctuary T

Mixed with assam tea, this maintains its sweet, almost buttery taste.

It is a nice light tea to start your morning mixed with a proper black tea.

drank Chocolate Chai by Sanctuary T

This is barely chocolate and/or chai, the honeybrush overpowers everything and gives this tired rooibos taste.

I am extremely disappointed with this, as I was expecting some kind of chai flavor.

drank Fruit Sangria by Argo Tea

Fruity and flavorful, this tea is bright, lush and juicy.

Best served iced cold and preferably mixed with fresh fruit.

This is one of the perfect summer teas to enjoy.

drank Blackberry Mojito by Teavana
249 tasting notes

Very fruity and very refreshing, with the spearmint; truly delicious green tea blend.

This is more fruity than green tea, with a dash of refreshing mint.

I’ve only had this hot, but I imagine this would be much better iced on a hot sunny day.

I like oolong; before really getting into chai, oolong was my tea of choice.

This tea is quite strange, as I was expecting a different kind of sweet with the typical oolong earthy undertone.

What I got was more of a green tea flowery taste, coupled with the slight sweetness of fruit and roses.

The tea is very light and bright, which would require more sweetener than usual.

Iced or hot, this blend is possibly the most perfect chai you will ever have.

It is very citrusy, but is also overcome with spices galore with combined white tea and mate that gives it its very distinct delicious taste.

It is a blend you can drink all the time and not get tired of.

Strong, but not overpowering, with delicate fruity notes.

I pair one heaping teaspoon of Darjeeling with 1.5 teaspoons german rock sugar for a light sweet taste.

Makes a perfect afternoon tea, with or without milk, I prefer without.

Boiling 3 min, 0 sec

drank Carnival by Sanctuary T
249 tasting notes

Because I love chai tea, this tea seemed perfect, as it is the right amount of spice.

The flavor is quite smooth with a creamy & buttery finish, and everyone kept noting that it smells like coffee.

I add an equal amount of rock sugar to one teaspoon in 16oz of boiling water to compliment the buttery taste.

For chai lovers, or coffee drinkers that want to wane themselves, this tea is perfect.
