drank ChocoNut by Teavana
200 tasting notes

Hey, it’s another night of discontinued tea as I work on my comp paper for grad school. I bought this from Teavana a while ago. It smells wonderful, which I’m sure is part of the reason I bought it. I brewed this along time ago, probably found it too bitter, and put it away in the “Tea Box Void”. I resurrected it recently and found it still had a pleasant smell, so I thought I would give it another try. This time, I did some homework, and found out you shouldn’t brew it for more than 2 minutes. Check and check. The short steeping helped a lot, and it is a pleasant tea to drink.

As it’s cooling down, I think I would prefer it iced. Also, I agree with the other reviews that these flavors would have worked better with a black tea. The green tea they’ve used is just too unforgiving. Well, not like it matters since it’s discontinued.

So the short story is, a few years ago I was VERY MUCH into tea. And then a lot of things happened, and I got out of tea for a while. And now, I’m back.ⁿ

To me, tea is the missing puzzle piece for my healthy lifestyle. When I drink tea I am encouraged to eat healthy and be active. I drink tea because I simply enjoy the taste, but the health aspects are just an added bonus.

I love all types of teas, although greens and oolongs tend to be my favorite. I’ll drink herbals if I’m feeling a little under the weather. And recently I’ve been getting more into young shengs (also chasing that elusive “cha qi”).

Unless otherwise stated, I drink my teas straight. I’ve been doing gongfu mostly these days, so I use a ceramic gaiwan with an electric kettle. For greens and some oolongs, I’ll do a western style with a glass mug or regular infuser. I try to specify if my brewing parameters are outside the norm.

I’m kinda strict when rating my teas. I rarely give a tea above a 95. Teas that I really like I keep in the 95-85 category. I’ve yet to give a tea 100 yet. So, if you see a tea about 95, that means I thought it was an amazing tea!

ⁿ – Note: I did step away from tea for a while.. again. But now I’m back for REALZ. Usually I have to put this interest on hold when real life takes over, so I’m hoping for no major life events these days.
