I really enjoy this tea. It’s simple, but tasty. :)

Tried steeping the leaves a second time, though, and it was NOT tasty. :(

This is a very delicious tea, with a really nice balance between the mint and the chocolate, with a bit of a nutty flavor as well. So far, I haven’t added sugar when I’ve had it, as I don’t like adding things to my tea unless it’s iced! But I do think it would benefit from a little bit of sugar, so I will try this next time. Definitely a tea I would recommend. :)

Brewed this once so far, and I wasn’t impressed, as it turned out rather flat. It did improve as it cooled. Next time I will use more tea, I think, and maybe add a bit of sugar.

You really have to like jasmine to enjoy this tea, as the jasmine pretty much overpowers everything else, in my opinion. I’m not that big a fan of jasmine, so I was rather disappointed by this tea, unfortunately. Though the jasmine does give a nice sweet flavor to the tea, I would prefer for the other flavors to come forward a bit more, but I can’t say I hate this tea. I just find it rather so-so.

This is quite tasty mixed with Teavana’s Rooibos Sweet Amore, so that’s how I’ve been drinking it lately. The Sweet Amore adds some light, fruity flavors that bring the jasmine flavor to the background a bit more. I very much like this combination! Next, I will try it with the Rooibos Tropica, as Teavana suggests.

Brewed this one a bit strong the first time, but it was still tasty. Next time, I tried blending it with Haute Chocolate Rooibos, and that was a very delicious and chocolatey combination. Then I brewed it alone again, using less tea than the first time, and it was still a bit strong, but still delicious. Next time I’ll try even less tea. :P

This is a very flavorful black tea, malty and a little chocolatey. I really like it and would definitely recommend it!

This is not as spicy as I was hoping it would be, though I did feel a bit of a tingle in my throat. It’s tasty, but not something I would want to have all the time. I’m looking forward to mixing it with some of my other Teavana teas. :)

I recently bought a whole bunch of teas from Teavana, this being one of them. Out of everything I got, this is by far my favorite. I would recommend this to any Earl Grey fan. :)

I really enjoy this tea. The first time I brewed a cup, it was very bland-tasting, even though it had a really nice fruity aftertaste. The next time I brewed it, I used more tea, and it turned out very tasty! Not sure I would purchase again, but I do enjoy it. :)

Bio

I blame half of my tea obsession on Japan and the time I spent there in a study abroad program. Tea is everywhere in Japan, and I drank it daily while staying with my host family. When I came back home, I found myself craving it!

The other half of my tea obsession I blame on my job as a barista at Borders, where we serve Tazo loose leaf teas. I hadn’t even considered loose leaf teas a possibility until I started working there! The freshness and the difference in quality really turned me on to loose leaf teas.

So bit by bit, I’ve been increasing my tea self-education, and I drink tea at least once a day. I love trying new kinds, and unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it), the more I learn, the more I want to try!

In addition to tea, I also enjoy books and music. If you would like, look for me on last.fm (user: giragirataiyou) or Goodreads (user: thexquietxlife). :)
