drank Lavender Crème by Teavana

Discovery tea box – Tea #3
I’m not usually jumping to try a Teavana tea…. especially stored in a sandwich baggie. But what the heck. Oddly enough, the ingredients really clogged my basket infuser, so it wouldn’t drain… at all. I couldn’t get the tea liquid out of the infuser into the mug for anyway. Hmm. That never happened. I’d say the name of this tea was definitely accurate despite all the wacky ingredients… it tasted like lavender with slight hints of cream. I couldn’t taste chocolate at all. Or figs. Or cardamom. Overall, the flavor just seems like SWEET so I wish more of these fantastic ingredients had a stronger flavor. The blend has figs and vanilla and caramel and lavender, so if any Teavana tea is for me, it was probably this one. I just don’t like the weird clogging infuser though!

drank Tung Ting Oolong by Teavana
13 tasting notes

Not a completely bad tea but definitely not one of my favorite teas. Something about the taste just does not remind me of other oolongs. The flavors from other oolong teas that I like are not found in this tea. This tea leaves an almost dry taste in my mouth.

I believe that fruit teas are my favorite. I really enjoy drinking this tea iced because it brings out the fruit flavors more.

Years ago, this was actually the first loose leaf tea I ever bought. I frequently tried samples at Teavana, but this is the first one I ever had to have. I ended up with a few bags of this after Teavana closed, and it makes such a tasty, nostalgic treat. I’ve tried other chocolate mint teas since and have never been much of a fan. It might be because the white chocolate goes so much better with mint than other chocolates. So anyway, the tea tastes mostly like a mint candy with some desserty depth underneath. And it leaves a bit of a tingle on your tongue. This is one that definitely gets stale with age, so I guess I’d better hurry up and finish what I have.

Candy Cane Crush from David’s Tea would likely make a good substitute when you need a refill. :)

Oh yeah, I totally forgot about that one! I got a tin of that in a holiday sampler last year, and it was really good! I’ll be on the lookout during their after-Christmas sale (:

really really delicious- however, since it is so similar to DT forever nuts I have to compare them. DT has more of a warm cinnamon flavor. I don’t get any caramel notes in CAA. I have some left for a few more cups but after I don’t mind at all just having forever nuts.

Terrible. The lavender is so overpowering it made me feel nausea, wouldn’t reccomend.

This tea was too strong and bitter. I did not enjoy the taste honestly. It smells good, but does not have a pleasant taste when drinking. Very leafy.

Flavors: Flowers

This is my new favorite oolong tea. It’s simply delicious. It is a sweeter oolong and I love the honeysuckle flavor. The flavor is light but still comes through very well.

drank Weight To Go! by Teavana
1685 tasting notes

I know I’ve had this before, but for whatever reason I don’t have a note on it.

I take any sort of weight loss claims from tea with a mine full of salt grains. Yes, caffeine can make your metabolism run a tad faster and yes, drinking a lot of fluids, including tea, can help curb appetite given that many times the body interprets thirst as hunger. But beyond that, I haven’t seen enough proof to convince me that tea does much of anything to help one lose weight.

Oh and it does, sometimes, enable me to have a tasty after meal treat that makes it less likely I’ll want a dessert.

So for me, the reason to drink this isn’t because of the name. It’s because of how it tastes, which isn’t half bad.

Next time I’ll overleaf more — like all Teavana and other chunky fruit blends, more is better. The blend has a fruity, minty, slightly musky smell in the tin. It’s a bright red color and clear after steeping (thanks beetroot!) and it smells tartly fruity with an undercurrent of mint and a depth that I think comes from the pu-erh.

It tastes more like a fruit/herbal blend than a tea. I do taste an underlying leathery note that I think is from the pu-erh. It’s not overly tart despite the hibiscus — the tartness it does have is tempered by the fruit’s sweetness and blunted by the mint to some extent.

It’s quite tasty and I can’t help but wondering how it would be as a cold tea. I’m torn about going there, though, given that Teavana is kaput and that would use up most of my tin.

This tea is one of my favorites. It’s light, refreshing, and fruity. It is very aromatic, and when brewed too long it becomes overwhelming. Personally, I like it iced with lemon. It takes minute maid.

Flavors: Apricot, Flowers, Strawberry

Found these pyramid sachets at Walmart, to my surprise. It’s Earl Grey, so nothing mind-blowing, but there is a light root beer note to this that is kind of interesting.

Although this tea was very tart, I really enjoyed it. I tried it both hot and cold and prefer it cold, however. I personally like tart berry flavors but I know some people might not. The color isn’t a dark pink color which was very visually appealing.

Flavors: Strawberry
