drank Caramel Chai Rooibos by Teavana
109 tasting notes

I almost wonder if I got the right tea in this package! It’s straight from them, and sealed, but wow – no caramel in the slightest! This really tastes like liquid red hot candies to me (which Teavana’s cinnamon flavor often does). I get a little whiff of ginger (and a slightly stronger taste of it), and that’s about it – it’s pretty much one-dimensional. Having said that, I weirdly like it. Not enough to buy more, but my 2 oz will be used up and not passed on to others or discarded.

Flavors: Candy, Cinnamon, Ginger

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 5 min, 30 sec 4 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

This tea is definitely for dessert. I have had it with and without milk, and it tastes wonderfully sweet. It is almost too strongly sweet, but the spices mellow this some. The scent is an amazingly strong caramel, but the taste is comparatively light. Color is coppery, and I always have dregs in the bottom no matter my infuser type. I do recommend if you are looking for a snack, not an accompaniment to a meal.

Flavors: Anise, Caramel, Chocolate, Nutty, Salt, Spices

Delicious! Light, nutty, luscious. A perfect balanced tea to finish the day with, or enjoy on a cozy afternoon. NOTE: I hear they have changed their recipe recently, and reviews suggest it’s not as good as it used to be. Oh, Teavana.

Flavors: Almond, Caramel, Nutty, Sweet

drank Moroccan Mint by Teavana
7 tasting notes

A minty green tea that makes for a great serving tea when company is over. It’s easy to over-steep, so keep it on the light side of the timer. It gets bitter fast. Be careful! If done right, this tea is refreshing and quite lovely.

Flavors: Mint, Spearmint

drank Earl Grey Creme by Teavana

Earl Grey with a creamy twist. The vanilla notes are strong, possibly stronger than the bergamot notes. But if you’re looking to make a London Fog (Earl Grey Tea Latte), this is a great tea to use.

Flavors: Bergamot, Vanilla

Not a fan. Too expensive and too grassy.

I honestly would not even brew this tea if it was given to me as a gift.

The combination of pumpkin spice and chocolate is interesting. I don’t hate it, but I don’t love it either. Something in this blend reads like oatmeal on my palate. Alas, this is another hyped up tea that’s mostly pumpkin spice with no discernible pumpkin flavor. I probably wouldn’t mind it so much had the pumpkin spice been tempered by just white chocolate and more vanilla, but the chocolate/carob throws off my taste buds. It’s not terrible but it’s not something I’ll be repurchasing when I’m done with my 2 ounces.

Flavors: Chocolate, Cinnamon, Oats

I really like this tea in the morning. It is sorta like coffee but has a slight hint of vanilla. It’s a nice rich tasting tea. I drink it plain.

Tastes like vanilla rooibos. It’s an okay cup of tea but nothing special to me.

drank Caramel Chai Rooibos by Teavana

Oh my goodness! This is some seriously delicious caffeine free chai. Prepared it as a latte and I must say that I am totally impressed. It has a spice kick that I love and the amount of ginger is perfect. The only bad thing is that I only have enough for another latte then it’s game over for this one since I cannot order teas from Teavana in Canada any longer. So sad…oh well, there are plenty other delicious blends to discover.

drank Apple Pie à la Mode by Teavana

Smelled intriguing…tasting it is another story though. I can definitely taste the apple and that is fantastic but there was just an off flavor in the background-a mix of ingredients I did not much care for-I blame the licorice part of it. Not my cup of tea.

This is one of my favorites. I steep it a long time – not sure how long. I’ll try to time it next time :)

Flowery, calming before-bedtime tea, I find this very similar to DAVIDsTea’s Dream On; I’ll have to experiment a little more to find out which one I prefer.

This tea is quite different than many of the other oolongs I’ve tried. The leaves carry a toasted, grainy aroma, and the brew comes to a nice golden amber. The flavour is very smooth, almost a bit flat (although that could’ve come from me not using enough leaf), but certainly not unpleasant. It has a distinctly toasty, almost nutty taste to it with a smooth, lingering finish that is somewhat sweet. It’s unique in that it doesn’t really taste like what I expect from and oolong, but it doesn’t taste overly dark or like a black tea either. Very cozy and warming!

Flavors: Almond, Mineral, Smooth, Toasty

drank Tung Ting Oolong by Teavana
12 tasting notes

A delicious and smooth oolong tea with a mildly sweet body and a slightly salty top note. I find when brewed stronger, the finish takes on a bit of a creamy feeling. I find the vegetal notes much milder and smoother than many green oolongs I’ve tried, and the brew is not overly astringent.

Flavors: Cream, Salt, Sweet, Vegetal

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 3 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 9 OZ / 266 ML

All the descriptions I’m reading sound lovely, but I hated this one! It tasted like hot spinach juice to me, although now that I’m reading others’ thoughts, I can also see asparagus and mineral flavors. I really didn’t get any subtlety from it, and really my nicest thing to say about it was that it wasn’t bitter at all. I do think I probably oversteeped it, but I don’t think that would make enough of a difference for me to want to try it again.

Flavors: Asparagus, Mineral, Spinach, Vegetal
