Recent Tasting Notes
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
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.
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
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
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
This is a delicious, full-bodied black tea! I love the dark, sweet body and the slight salted note I get towards the end. I find myself reaching for this over many of my other black teas due to the fullness and the gentle, natural sweetness of the flavour.
Flavors: Caramel, Honey, Salt, Smooth
This is the first pu’erh I’ve ever tried. My initial impression is mixed, but overall positive. The aroma is aged and earthy, and the flavour is earthy, suggesting mushroom or root. It has a warm, dark body, and a very slightly tannic finish. It’s not something I’d drink all the time, but it’s certainly worth trying.
Flavors: Earth, Mushrooms, Tannin
