222 Tasting Notes
It’s been a while since I’ve been pleasantly surprised by a tea, particularly from Teavana. I cannot handle a lot of spice, so I have to admit I was kind of apprehensive about this tea (Well it still might kill my stomach, but generally I know right away when something is to spicy for me. And if that happens, then I will put some kind of non dairy creamer in it.) 1st cup wise this is a damn good tea. There is enough curry to make the other flavors pop a little bit, but it doesn’t over power. I think there is also cinnamon. Which seems to make others think of Christmas. It doesn’t with me. Mangos make me think of being on the beach or in a cabana with someone special ;) While I have thought this many times before, I think I will mostlikely want to get this tea again when I’m finished with the bag.
Like the other I just added and reviewed,(And I think these were bought from the same company…they kind of taste similar.) It’s an ok tea, I think it would be smashing iced. And is light on the fruit taste. Truthfully I would like it with just alittle bit more. Not overtaking the tea, though. Yes I know-I’m picky. So shoot me already;)
This is an interesting tea. For those of you who prefer alot of actual tea in their cup, avoid this one….(Though I imagine most of you avoid Teavana like the plague anyways.)
I like this tea so far…only had a few sips. I had meant to concentrate on mostly fruity blends when at Teavana’s but since they were out of this tea the last time I went…I decided to jump on it. It’s nice and sweet, warm…I’d say more of a fall/winter tea, but it’s been threatening to storm all day so, I’ll use that as an excuse to enjoy this. I enjoy this better then the Cha Yen Thai Tea I had earlier, so in comparison I think I’d be more likely to get another bag of this when I run out.
Got this yesterday, along with Fig Rose, Spice to Life and a bag of German Rock Sugar. For fans of Teavana’s Zingiber Ginger Coconut, and the Maharaja Chai Oolong/Tulsi Dosha Chai Rooibos blend, you might want to check this out.
I think I like this tea well enough to finish the bag, but don’t think I’ll buy it again.
This was a sample thanks to Teajo Teas. I look forward to being able to buy some tea from them soon:)
Smell wise: I had gotten this on Monday…I think? But hadn’t been able to test it til now. And of course I could not resist opening it and sniffing it. It smells quite good, just like Mangos though I can see why people would smell Peach, too. However, there is an odd underlying smell of chemicalness that puts me off. Kind of reminded me of how oranges can get when they are getting old.
Taste Wise: It’s an interesting tea, not boring. Though I cannot say that I am especially inspired by this tea. But…I am impressed to the extent that I think I will come across teas that I do like even love from this company, most likely in the ‘Around the World’ sampler that I intend on buying in the next few months.
Another that I got today:)
I like this tea that I think I would like finishing this off, but I am not sure I would want to get this again. I have not had dragonfruit so could not say whether this tastes like true dragonfruit or not. Luckily the flavor profile that I tasted tastes very little like most of the other fruity teas. Actually, the only taste that it reminded me of was Citrus Lavender Sage. Which in fact was suggested on the site as a combo.
Went shopping today at Teavana! There were alot of teas that I’ve been wanting to try for a long while and since who knows when I’ll be able to tea shop next, I mind as well go now! I picked this because the concept of Mojito flavored tea intrigues me, and I wanted a green tea to drink tonight.
Well, I can’t say that I am impressed with this tea. Truthfully I am rather dissapointed. It doesn’t taste horrible, it tastes nice, but the flavor reminds me alot of Teavana’s other fruity teas. (Such as Peach berry Jasmine Sutra) I can’t help but think that with a longer steep that the flavor would come out a bit more, yet it says on the directions to only steep for a minute. Granted, even with that minute when I picked up the lid, the color was already a deep purplish red that looked lovely. While I have the feeling this would taste better iced, I will probably not buy this again.
