drank Boston by Harney & Sons

I found this in the back of my tea drawer at work. It smells and tastes exactly like this weird christmas candy my grandma always had when I was a kid. I’m okay with it. Probably wouldn’t buy it again (not that I even remember buying this) but I’m not mad about this being my last drink of the day before I go home.

Flavors: Caramel, Chocolate, Vanilla

I hate cinnamon. I only tried this because they sent it to me as a sample, and I noticed on their website that it’s their most popular tea. I’m freezing in the office right now, and thought I’d give it a shot.

Welp. I love it. I don’t know who I am anymore.

This is one of my favorite blends of Teavana teas. I got a huge bag of it for $6 at a store closing sale, and my life will never be the same! It’s the most delightful floral and fruity blend, without being too much of either. I’m going to be super sad when I finish this bag.

Flavors: Citrus, Floral, Fruity, Jasmine

drank White Chocolate Chai by DAVIDsTEA
63 tasting notes

After my Candy Cane Crush white chocolate fiasco, I was a little hesitant about trying yet another tea with actual pieces of chocolate in it, but no issues here! The taste is weird, though. I’m definitely getting cardamom and your regular chai flavors, but I’m not tasting white chocolate. Just a general sweetness. Probably won’t be drinking this again.

Flavors: Cardamon, Cinnamon, Sweet

Oh, man. This stuff smells heavenly. It reminds me of the little mints my grandma always had in her purse. However, it plugged up my steeper pretty badly. It took forever to get it out, and I think it may have had to do with all of the white chocolate bits melting. I’m not sure. The flavor is nice, at least.

drank Sakura Allure by Teavana

Just bought this last week during my Teavana spree. It…doesn’t taste like anything? Like, I get a very small hint of cherry, but I feel like I’m just drinking red, sour water.

drank Arabian Nights by Tea Sparrow
63 tasting notes

My first tea from my first Tea Sparrow subscription!

(Also, I made this entry since it wasn’t in yet, and it wouldn’t let me add “natural grape flavor” as an ingredient. It’s an ingredient!)

This kind of reminds me of the grape wulong Teavana had forever ago, but doesn’t smell like cough syrup as much. The leaves smell really pleasant.

Steeped for three minutes, per package instructions. This is tasty, and definitely less grapey than the Teavana one. I’d consider buying this.

Flavors: Astringent, Grapes, Green, Sweet

Preparation
3 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

drank Strawberry Paraiso by Teavana
63 tasting notes

Found myself at a Teavana this weekend. I told the guy behind the counter I was desperate for a fruity tea that didn’t have apple or hibiscus and this was one of the things he recommended. (I also got some gyokuro genmaicha that I can’t wait to dive into after lunch!)

It smells and tastes like straight up strawberry Big League Chew, the preferred bubblegum of my childhood crew. I don’t think I’d drink this every day, but, damn, it hits the fruity-but-not-apple spot right now.

Flavors: Strawberry

Preparation

Couldn’t decide on my first tea of the morning and found a sample of this in my tea drawer.

I like the taste! But so much of it escaped through my tea strainer. Way more than anything else ever has. In fact, I think I’ve only had one other tea do this and it was because I wasn’t thinking and emptied an Irish Breakfast tea bag in with some other stuff to make a blend. Big mistake. Huge.

Anyway, yeah. I like the flavor. I wasn’t sure if I would because I’m seriously sick of apple teas, but I’d consider ordering a small bag of this. Or maybe another sample.

(Which reminds me that David’s left out a sample in my last order and I’m kind of bummed about it.)

Flavors: Citrus, Cream, Orange, Vanilla
