736 Tasting Notes
Got a late, unexpected Christmas package from the lovely Albertocanfly today!
She sent me some of this tea which i was excited to try. I love kiwis, and strawberries are pretty good in tea form. Not really a fan of real strawberries anymore even though I loved them as a kid. Think I had too many sour ones so I stopped eating them.
But I’ve found that strawberry flavors in tea is actually really good. In this tea the strawberry flavor is super sweet and present. Very in-your-face. Which I like!
The kiwi on the other hand is the sour one. 0_0 Like super sour. The kind of sour only Warheads should be. xD
For that reason, I do not like this tea. Strawberry and kiwi would make a great mix, as long as neither of them are sour. It was so close to being good, but just not close enough! D:
Thanks for the sample though, Albertocanfly!
Flavors: Fruity, Sour, Strawberry
I’m nearly finished with my first tin of this tea! Has been a few weeks since I last had it. I still really enjoy this tea so much. I really hope that by the time this one runs out, they have it stocked on their website or in the store closest to me. I cannot run out! D:
Still as perfectly sweet and juicy as always! Wonderful tea for bad mornings!
Every time I have this tea, I remember how amazing it is. For some reason in my head I keep thinking it’s gonna be a really sour lemon that I really really gotta be in the mood for. But it keeps surprising me and making me realize how amazing it is. It’s such a creamy and smooth lemon. It’s actually pretty amazing-and I wish my brain would stop lying to me! It’s annoying! ><
I’ve always wanted to love this one. It was always so popular at Teavana, but it was always too citrusy for me. The bag we have is a couple years old now-not stored properly at all since we got it so long ago when none of us knew anything about tea.
So maybe this is an accurate review, but maybe it’s not. Because I can’t tell if it’s lost flavor yet. xD I know it certainly hasn’t lost its smell yet!
Whenever I open the bag I’m hit with a strong citrus smell. While steeping the strong orange smell turned into a grapefruit smell. Which didn’t give me any confidence that I’d like it.
But I tried it anyway.
This tea has the weirdest texture. It’s like…fuzzy, and kinda leaves a weird dry sense in your mouth after each sip. That probably doesn’t make sense, but I have no idea how to describe it!
As for the flavor, it’s a lot more mild than the steeping or dry leaf smell. It’s kinda fruity, mostly citrusy. Not very sweet, like the other Teavana teas I actually like. It’s kinda just there. It definitely needs sugar, and I’m not one to add sugar to any of my drinks…So yeah.
This one is not for me! >< I can see why everyone loves it though. I’m a weirdo since I don’t like citrus xD Oh well! Saving money I guess!
Flavors: Citrus, Fruity, Grapefruit, Orange
Took this one in a tumbler to church with me this morning. Was a rough morning to be out and about, but this tea made it a bit more enjoyable. Still trying to decide if I should purchase more of this when I finally run out. Today it tasted really fruity and almost like grapes. Which I usually don’t like in teas, but in this one it worked for me. But I only used those leaves once, and couldn’t re-steep them later. Maybe by the time I’ve finished the two ounces I have, I’ll know if I want to make this one a keeper.
But today It was nice! (:
Flavors: Fruity, Grapes
This one hit the spot today! The lemon flavor isn’t too overwhelming, and the coconut really balances it out. I can’t explain how it totally tastes like perfume because I don’t taste any floral notes in it…But somehow it does.
Feel like as my sample of this runs out, I’m enjoying it more and more. And Butiki is closing. xD I bet my last few cups of this tea will be amazing haha-I will savor them! XD
Flavors: Coconut, Lemon, Perfume
Sample sip down.
Had one last tsp of this tea left, so figured I’d finish it off. I can’t remember what I thought of it before, but today I found it much too buttery for my taste. It’s so buttery, it’s almost salty. And ever so slightly floral-y. Way too much butter for me ><
Flavors: Butter, Floral, Salt
