3 Tasting Notes
This is my FAVORITE tea!!!
I have always been a fan of figs and roses in my tea and this sounded really interesting. So one day I was in the mall with my dad and we ended up in our local Teavana and I actually decided to try it. I have started to not trust Teavana and I wasn’t so sure about this tea. So I decided I might as well buy a cup of it. After ordering it brewed. I was sold! It was FANTASTIC. There is definitely a fig and rose flavor as well as a caramel-ly taste. Also a hint of spiced wine. It’s super easy to brew and I would recommend sugar (I think it brings out the rich flavors). If you love rich yummy herbal teas that are delicious and lush, I would definitely recommend.
This tea wasn’t bad…. it was okay. It has now become a staple in our house because my dad has fallen in love with this. To give you an idea about my dads taste: 1. It must be sweet and by sweet I mean very VERY sweet. 2. It must be fruity.
To make it short and sweet, my dad LOVES iced herbal tea.
I personally am not a fan of this blend. To me it tastes dull, bland, and a bit like watery gummy bears. It also looks a little like funky water. The aroma is nice but there is little to no taste. There is barely any taste of pineapple or blueberry. It’s also a pain to brew. When brewed at the recommended temperature and time it has no flavor and it’s gross. I ended up brewing it for double the time and waited to see if that did the trick…. nope. Still gross…. I have used the silly german rock sugar and everything but it’s still not what I tried in the store.
I would recommend not buying this tea and save your money. It’s not worth it and there are better teas out there. Another strike for Teavana.
