Not going to rate this one, as I’m not sure how old my sample is. I’m getting a weak apple flavor and a bit of cinnamon, but mostly the rooibos base coming through. Apple seems to be a hard flavor to get right in tea for some reason!
Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon, Rooibos
I am generally a big fan of strawberry teas so I picked up 50 g of this to try from my local Teavana before it closed. I’m glad I only got 50 g because I wasn’t a big fan. I found this tea to be too tart. All I really tasted was tartness. There wasn’t much of a strawberry or any other flavour. I wouldn’t repurchase this one.
Wasn’t expecting to like this much, since I am not a big fan of tiramisu dessert. I was actually pleasantly surprised! Nice light chocolate flavor with a distinct coffee tinge that is not overpowering. Decided to re-steep again and still had decent flavor on second try (although I don’t typically need a strongly brewed tea in the first place to enjoy). Happy to say this will be a new nighttime dessert swap-out favorite.
Another one of Teavana’s popular blends with appeal I just don’t quite understand.
This was vaguely citrusy. It wasn’t a sweet citrus note. It was a mild orange note. I’d liken the flavor to that of an orange that’s been plucked from the tree too soon. Apart from that, there was a random berry note that I couldn’t quite place.
It wasn’t anything to write home about, but it was more palatable than Pineapple Berry Blue.
I really don’t understand the appeal of this tea. I’m glad I didn’t care for it since Teavana’s closed up shop.
I didn’t get any distinct pineapple or blueberry flavors. I got primarily hibiscus, red rooibos (ICK!), and a very nondescript berry note. I drank one glass over ice and won’t be steeping another.
Before Teavana shut down their online store I bought a bunch of this. The BF is a fan of all things peach, and I like that flavor pretty well, too.
I think next time I may use a bit more of the mix. Generally these sorts of blends taste better to me “overleafed.” Doing the math, I actually underleafed from the directions in retrospect. I don’t usually make more than just enough for me, and since I made enough for the BF too I got confused.
This definitely has a predominant peach aroma and flavor and is plenty sweet even without doubling. Fortunately, the pineapple doesn’t drown out the peach. The citrus note is just enough of an accent not to detract from the rest. It seems to serve the purpose that the tarragon serves in Refresh — it keeps the dominant flavors from being too too.
There’s a slight sour/bitter undertone that comes through in the finish and that may be the chamomile, but I think overleafing may result in this being lessened or removed. We’ll see next time.
The peach is fine — it tastes natural. The color is a little strange — it’s a light golden yellow, which I didn’t expect for some reason.
Flavors: Citrus, Peach, Sour, Tart
This is a nice tea. The leaves almost look like pine needles. They’re straight a green. The liquor is a light gold color when brewed. It smells like seaweed chips, like sea air. It has a bit of a salty taste. It has qualities that are typical of a green tea astringent, grassy, plant-like, vegetal, herbaceous. It’s smooth and light and flavor. To me, it doesn’t taste bitter when brewed properly.
Flavors: Asparagus, Astringent, Grass, Green, Hay, Herbaceous, Kale, Lettuce, Plant Stems, Plants, Seaweed, Smoked, Spices, Spinach, Straw, Vegetal
The leaves are small little and tight before brewing. They’re a nice bright green as well. They look almost like pine needles. It’s amazing how they unfurl to almost a full leaf and look almost brown when brewed. The liquid is a golden yellow color. It smells very floral. Almost like a chamomile. It tastes floral, astringent, it has a vegetal note as well, like grass. It has a mild nutty flavor.
Flavors: Astringent, Floral, Flowers, Nutty
Never thought I would see them try to make a sea salt caramel into a tea. Then again it seems like Teavana will try anything. Well from the very first smell I thought it would be a hit. Wafts of chocolate and cream first hit you when you open your tin. I honestly didn’t notice much of a smell as it was steeping and the wet smell is just.. there. Honestly, the flavor isn’t bad but the liquid is not fun to look at. Like hmm… what is all that floating in my cuppa?
If ratings were based off of smell and taste this tea would lose most of its points. It smells, so weird. The liquid isn’t very pretty to look at either. As far flavor goes, it definitely lives up to it’s name with hints of coconut and spices and an interesting after taste with a ginger zip. But it’s not one I would go out of my way to buy. Surprisingly the rooibos isn’t as strong as I thought it would be. Just not my digg.
This is one of my favorite blends of Teavana teas. I got a huge bag of it for $6 at a store closing sale, and my life will never be the same! It’s the most delightful floral and fruity blend, without being too much of either. I’m going to be super sad when I finish this bag.
Flavors: Citrus, Floral, Fruity, Jasmine
Teavana’s Strawberry Daiquiri Herbal Tea is light-bodied and sweet. It is predominantly strawberry with a tinge of tart lemongrass and a faint boozy aftertaste. It goes over better chilled than hot, but it’s still nothing remarkable.
Flavors: Alcohol, Lemongrass, Strawberry
It feels like I’ll never get through my stash of this! I’ve had it for years and go through periods of ignoring and rediscovering. The flavors seem a little lighter at this point, not quite as rich as I recall even tho I over leafed in an effort to work through the tin. I’m under the impression that it is light on caffeine as well, which is why I sometimes ignore it. It looks like it is a mix of black tea, mate and rooibos, but the rooibos doesn’t overpower.
Someone pointed out to me that the flavors were similar to Tevana’s Tiramisu Treviso, a rooibos blend that I loved, which is likely why I have kept it around for so long. It still has a deep feel of chocolate with a touch of coffee in it, a nuttiness too. It’s very nice with a bit of cream. It was never one of my top favorites from Tevana, but it has been consistently good with flavors that don’t seem like an over the top cluster like many of their other blends. I’ve enjoyed it a lot over the years, but am ready to move past it.
