drank JavaVana Mate by Teavana
11 tasting notes

This… is not my cup of tea. At first I thought it was a novel idea, putting assam and mate and cocoa and vanilla together, but everything about this jarred with what I enjoy. It tasted like bitter chocolate water, with this weird aftertaste- a kind of tang that was just ehhhhhh. I’ve had other tea with cocoa in them that have been good, so I’m gonna stick to those.

Flavors: Chocolate, Malt

Boiling 3 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 250 ML

I’m a 24-year old grad student who’s been drinking tea since I was itty bitty and having tea parties with my grandmother. Got serious about it my freshman year of college and have been exploring the wide world of loose-leaf ever since!

I like pretty much anything, really, except for blends that are super heavy on the sugar. The only thing I’ve ever truly hated was Teavana’s JavaVana Maté. As Scary Terry so famously said, these halves don’t belong together.

My ratings are pretty arbitrary. Anything above an 80 I like enough that I’d probably buy it again at some point after I run out; anything above 90 basically gets an A. Anything under 70 and I probably didn’t like it too much.
