8 Tasting Notes
So, this is a tea blend that I made for myself upon getting to work because I hadn’t had Blackberry Mojito in a while and hey why not?
I didn’t want just Blackberry Mojito though because I just wasn’t in too much of a mint mood. A little mint kick can be too much for me sometimes, but hey, I wanted this tea! So I mixed in Strawberry Lemonade which is super tasty!
The combined result ended up with a very berry flavor with a spearmint throughout. It was actually very refreshing. I drank it really fast but I don’t know if I would quickly reach for tis cup again. However, it was delicious enough to recommend as I am SURE that so many other people will love it even more then I did.
Again 6 teaspoons of each tea for the end result of a 22 oz cup. 4 teaspoons of sugar.
Flavors: Berry, Fruity, Spearmint
First my tip about this blend: Get it separated! You will find that it will taste more like it does in store because we keep it separated. ;)
I wanted an extra spicy cup of chai so I used a little more then I usually would for a cup, 2 teaspoons of each for a 12 oz cup. Would have made a full 16 oz but my cup can’t hold that much so I stuck with it. Haha!
I love this blend. It’s not too overpowering in any sense. With it being double strength currently (as I brewed it) I am enjoying the stronger presence of the Cinnamon. The spice feels nice on the throat going down. Nice and sweet. _____
Flavors: Cinnamon, Spicy, Sweet
I got a massage this morning which was amazing and saw that the Massage Envy location I was at had these teabags. Cranberry Pomegranate is one of my favorite flavor combinations in other companies so I decided to pick one up and take it home to review it.
First, upon opening the packet it smells hopeful. However, it does not smell like pomegranate or cranberry at all. Instead it smells of blueberries. It’s almost like Teavanas blueberry pineapple in smell… I wonder if it will taste as such? This is ironic because it is a mix of rooibos, hibiscus, and cranberry and pomegranate flavorings so why would it be giving off that aroma? I do not know.
After steeping it I was very disappointed. It wasn’t the worst thing to ever grace the planet but it was not close to great either. I was a cup of blaaaaaaaaaaaaah and didn’t really taste of anything remote to cranberry/pomegranate.
Oh well, I have more teas to love.
“if you like pina coladas…. and getting caught in the rain” you got to steep yourself a cup of this tea then!
Seriously. This tea made cold (which is what I did) with a little creamer or milk added in tastes EXACTLY like the stress relieving pina colada. If you can’t drink at work but you are allowed to drink tea, HERE’S TO YOU! Beat that stress!!!
Made for a 22 iced cup of tea
6 teaspoons of each tea
4 teaspoons of sugar
*making your tea hot and cooling down in the fridge will result in more tea with less tea leaves ;)
Flavors: Coconut, Pineapple
Berry Kiwi Colada and Pineapple Kona Pop is a great blend if you want something that is sweet and just a little tart at the same time. Berry Kiwi Colada is just a little too tart for my liking when it is by itself, but combine it with pineapple kona pop and it knocks it out of the park!!
I work for Teavana. We created this one on accident. Originally we were just testing if Pineapple Kona Pop really does make everything better (it does!) but we accidentally forgot to set a timer and ended up steeping it for 15 minutes!! It was just like drinking sour straws. My sweet tooth soul was craving it today so I made it (10 minutes steeped this time) and it was just as good as I remember. You got to try it!!
6 teaspoons of each tea and 4 teaspoons of sugar = delicious.
Make hot and then refrigerate more for more tea with less tea use ;)
Flavors: Fruity, Pleasantly Sour, Tart
Last time I had it hot so of course I have to have a cup cold.
This tea is sweet without the added sugar but I had a sweet tooth that had to be taken care of so I added a medium amount. It tasted amazing again of course.
Made hot and poured over ice it was an instant gratification and refreshment (after the four minute wait of course).
The citrus notes do come out more throughout the drink when made cold. The strawberry was still there and prominent of course but not with the creaminess that comes from being made hot. I could drink this all day!!
Made with 6 tsp strawberry lemonade
6 tsp strawberry grapefruit
4 tsp perfect rock sugar
for a 22 oz cold cup, brewed for four minutes.
Flavors: Citrus, Strawberry
This blend is delicious! It’s a blend of Teavanas strawberry grapefruit xue long green tea and strawberry lemonade herbal tea.
Has a beautiful red hue when Brewed.
The strawberries create a nice almost creamy texture and the citrus notes provide a nice twang at the end. Tastes like jello with a little Belgian rock sugar added in!
Flavors: Citrus, Fruity, Smooth, Summer, Sweet
