drank Berry Basil Blast by Teavana
871 tasting notes

Unsure about how this one smells dry. It is kind of fruity but also has the smell of steemed green vegetables. Not two things I would normally mix together. There is a spicey and basil smell to it.

The brewed tea is actually not too bad. More like fresh berries in a spinach salad. I am not getting much basil per se, but I am getting a general spice type taste. This one is definitely better after it cools.

Edit: this one is better cold (I forgot my cup and it cooled off after a number of hours). There is more basil taste but still fruity. The berry and basil go well together.

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
