drank Kamiya Papaya Oolong by Teavana
104 tasting notes

I picked this up at Teavana the other day because a) I work in a mall with a Teavana instead of a DavidsTea and b) it was on sale. I was intrigued by the scent and I love love love iced tea. I have to say though – this 50g rule that Teavana has is super lame. I only wanted 25 to see if I would like it.

What I liked about the tea was that I could taste the oolong throughout the sip – often the base is hidden in other iced teas. It also had a strange cinnamon note that I really like. However, I find the tea to be a bit too perfume-y for my liking.

Often when I have an iced tea at Teavana, it tastes like crayon. Not that I eat crayons… but y’know, it’s waxy! Luckily this tea doesn’t have that quality.

How the story goes is that one day, a feeble, weakened graduate student decided to stop ingesting so much caffeine and additives (sugar, cream, milk) and instead headed for the land of tea.

I should probably mention that I’ve been drinking tea… pretty much since I can remember. The beauty of growing up in a still-semi-Euro family! I was introduced to green teas and pu’erhs by herbalists and acupuncturists in my teens.
