571 Tasting Notes
I can’t believe I’ve had this tea so long now! Yikes! But it’s still so amazing and still tastes fine. I’ve been drinking this one before bed for a few weeks now so that I can relax and I think it’s doing the job. There has been a lot of stress in my life lately and I’m glad for something like this. I will definitely be getting this one again once i’m out of it.
So, I’m starting to realize I don’t care for sweet blackberry leaves either…
I steeped up this one for 7 mins in my ice tea press and wow, it’s yummy but wow it was different… I ended up adding some agave and some extra water to it to smooth it out a bit as I found the blackberry leaf sweetness as really weird and didn’t quite sit right… I’m not too sure why I don’t like the blackberry leaves.. I feel like they give me a weird taste in the back of my mouth… Again, I blame baby #2 for that. My body seems to still be a bit weird after that. Babe is 3 months old but I think I’m still trying to get back to myself.
It seems strange to me that I am the second person to review this one…
Anyways, took my last 3PS of this one and made it into a lovely latte. It was so good! I got the chocolate and the graham cracker, but not as much the marshmallow flavour. I got more of the sweetness and creaminess from the marshmallow more than anything. Glad I finished it up. I probably wouldn’t get this one again only because I think this is the only tea from Teavana that I’m really enjoying at this moment. Plus I really like the Citizen tea version right now. So I’ll stick with that one.
This makes me think of Cherry Vanilla coke, but without the coke under taste. I don’t know what it is about this one, but I absolutely love it. I added some milk and rock sugar because I prefer it that way. I find the sugar pulls out the cherry flavour much better. And I like the milk to just smooth it all out and bring it all together. This tea is just such a lovely blend.
