321 Tasting Notes

It’s good for what it is. It’s bright and citrusy and sweet. It tastes like summer, and it’s delicious iced. My problem with it comes in in terms of cost – it’s really only good for one strong steep, and it’s a weak tea so I brew it strongly. That being said, I can purchase the ingredients straight for much less money and blend it myself. I’m glad I bought it though, as it is delicious, just not worth the price.

FYI, it’s currently 75% off at Teavana right now on their After Christmas sale so if you really like it you might want to grab some more at that insanely low price. I picked up 13.10 ounces today and paid $11.14.

drank Chamomile by Adagio Teas
321 tasting notes

It tastes like chamomile. It’s certainly a lot fresher than the chamomile found in bag form. It’s a little apple-y with a bit of grassy floral notes toward the end. It’s good with honey, although I can’t see myself drinking this every day. I imagine that I’ll be using it mostly in blends or for sick days in the future – it’s calming, if a little overpoweringly strong. I used 1tsp/8oz for 6 min and I think I need to adjust the ratios a bit.

drank Coconut by Adagio Teas
321 tasting notes

This was decent. The aroma of the coconut in the bag was really warm, although it subsided when I brewed it. I brewed this gong fu style, and I found the coconut flavor really coming out on subsequent brewings – there were notes of coconut and butter. It was toasty and mellow. I have a feeling it’s going to be a great base for blends – I’m going to try it in a mug, and then maybe try using it as a base.

drank Korean Sejak by DAVIDsTEA
321 tasting notes

This has a beautiful bright green color. The dry leaves are small and brittle, with an earthy, vegetal scent. When steeped, they open up into large, brownish green leaves. They don’t smell particularly strong, although they certainly smell dark. The tea when brewed is vegetal and slightly sweet with little notes of honey toward the finish. I brewed this gong fu style, and the flavor just kept getting more and more complex.

drank Dragonwell by Teavana

This is a beautifully sweet green tea. The leaves are flat and silky, and they smell warm and vegetal. On a first steep, the tea has a vegetal flavor with a lingering finish, and notes of nut and butter.

I thought this was pretty good, but I just got some premium dragonwell from Teavivre and wow, it was great.

drank Chateau Blanc by Teavana
321 tasting notes

This leans a bit toward the fig/currant flavor profile instead of the grape, which makes me a bit sad. Still, it’s not a bad tea. It brews a very pale, golden yellow and smells a bit malty. The white tea comes in at the back of the flavor and the fruit dominates; it’s a tea to drink quickly. It’s not one that you sit with for a long time and savor every different flavor.

drank Mudslide by Teaopia

I couldn’t drink this tea. I don’t particularly like strong rooibos teas – once in awhile, but not often – and I really didn’t like this one. I may have brewed it a bit weak, but I wouldn’t want to try it again. I found the banana to be overpoweringly cloying, and the chocolate didn’t mesh well in it. Additionally, the walnuts in it gave me a bit of a headache (but I think I’m mildly allergic, so that was to be expected).

drank Body + Mind White Tea by Teavana
321 tasting notes

First steeping: very light, jasmine scented tea. It’s fragrant and floral and very slightly sweet. The delicate brightness cuts through the light smokiness of the oolong. The tea brews a golden color and has a short, dry finish.

Second steeping: The floral and oolong flavors come out more clearly. It brews a bit of a darker color, and the white tea is more difficult to taste here. It’s smokier, and the oolong leaves have expanded much more fully .

The leaves when dried are bright green and tightly rolled into little twists and curls. On a first steep, they unroll partially and have a very vegetal aroma. The tea liquor is a very light green and smells grassy. It has a very light, clear taste. It’s mellow and delicate with notes of honey and almond, and has a smooth, lingering finish.

I found the tea to be too dark and earthy. And did not think that the peppermint meshed at all. I could see the idea working, but not the execution.
