God does this tea smell good in the bag. Like luscious fruit candy. I let it steep for 6 minutes on everyone’s recommendations. It’s better than I remember- sweet, but not cloyingly so. I think it would be an excellent summer iced tea with frozen fruit. Peach is mostly on the aftertaste- initial taste is citrusy and orange, maybe some of the pineapple or apple. Definitely fruity, but not much else. Still, pleasant cuppa.
Flavors: Apple, Citrusy, Peach, Pineapple
1 sachet for 275mL water @100C, steeped 5 minutes, evaporated milk added.
A decent ‘breakfast’ blend, though not worth the premium price charged. Stands up reasonably well to a teaspoon of thick and creamy evaporated milk … but could be stronger. It does have an unexpected and most welcome floral-bread scent. If I had to guess, I’d say this blend is Nilgiri-heavy, with some heft but no depth and very little maltiness.
Enjoyed this iced, girlfriend’s purchase and recommendation.
Steeped hot, let cool overnight, iced the next day. We enjoyed a few tumblers of it next to the pool. Light, fruity, and sweet! I look forward to diving in for a full review with a future steeping. I will definitely be trying this tea again.
It’s good but it’s another one that I can’t help compare to another that I like better. This is peachy, no doubt about that but Just Peachy by DAVIDsTEA just tastes juicier. It’s always the number one pick of my friends from all my teas when they come over. Teavana is more tart, less sweet and has more flavours mingling with the peach whereas DAVIDs tastes like pure peach and is very sweet and almost has a fruit juice-like quality to it. I’m sure that both would make a great iced version. As long as I can buy Just Peachy, I won’t bother getting Peach Tranquility but it still makes a decent replacement in a pinch.
Flavors: Citrusy, Peach, Sweet, Tart
Received one tea bag from someone in Switzerland (she sent me actually 5 different ones)
I have again some panic attacks lately. I think it is caused by staying in household with same people and I actually do not meet other people too much. I rather stay at home, doing school shit work. I began being more rude as well, maybe I am stressed out somehow. My mother thinks I spend too much time in front of screen of my laptop and when I told her, I have to – because everything is on the Internet, she was just angry that it doesn’t make any sense and that I should not do that much to school. Well – if it was normal life outside, I guess, I will spend all days in University, so what she expects?
I miss inventory checks. The money for summer will be short too I guess. They haven’t replied to a summer job yet, I wrote them e-mail week ago, so I guess I will try it again.
To the tea:
I tried to do it as much as I could do with instructions. 80°C water, 300 ml water (they recommend 236 ml (8 fl oz) and filtered) and 3 minutes of steeping.
It made bit of foam, which is weird. Aroma little peachy and mostly grass seed. Taste? Quite weak, I hoped for very fruity flavour. Some warming notes of ginger, but not spicy at all. Base tea? Meh. Grass seed flavour as well.
Expected way more than I actually get.
Flavors: Ginger, Grass Seed
Another sample from the lovely derk!
So, I’ve been having umm, issues with Rooibos lately. Don’t get me wrong, I love rooibos when done right. But I keep having trouble with brewing times. Since this was a sample, and Teavana has gone POOF, I couldn’t exactly look up brewing instructions or times anywhere but here. So I went with about what it listed here: 205F/6min/2tsp/12oz.
The problem is it still isn’t as strong a cuppa as I would like. I certainly get the tropical vibe that it presents. And the rooibos isn’t too woody, which I’m not sure is a plus or minus (for me anyway). Primary flavor notes are pineapple, citrus, and I swear I taste a touch of passion fruit. But it’s hard to pick out individual notes because the flavor is so weak. If it were up to me, I’d have this same cuppa, with the flavor turned up about three or four notches. I wouldn’t want to make it too strong – these kinds of teas can get super artificial fast. But I would love to have a stronger flavor in general.
Overall? It’s decent. Maybe even above average. I still have half a pouch of this from the sample, so I’m pretty sure I can make another brew. When I do, I’m just going to have to remember to steep it a bit longer than 6 minutes. Maybe 8 or 9 would be better. But I would gladly drink this again.
Flavors: Citrus, Passion Fruits, Pineapple, Tropical
I grabbed a bag of this I think from the tea box. It tastes like orange and spices. It’s okay but a little bit like potpourri. I don’t love orange and spices together in tea, so it’s not necessarily the tea’s fault, but it’s also not one of the better versions of this concept I have tried.
Mixed 2 teaspoons Mango Black with 1 teaspoon Peach Tranquility.
I’m not sure I got much actual tea in either of my two scoops of Mango Black. This basically tastes like apple, maybe some peach candy. Not as good as I thought it might be, honestly. Bummer. I’ll finish it, but really only to get to the next cup.
Flavors: Apple, Candy, Peach
No notes yet. Add one?
I’m not much of an herbal drinker, but my husband loves this one so I thought I’d try it for an evening cup. Teavana’s fruit blends have always been a hit or miss for me. This one is basically like drinking grape juice with just a touch of sweet balsamic vinegar added. Sounds weird but it really works. Also, for some reason, I am so often smelling tobacco with these herbal blends. Not sure what that comes from, maybe the elderberries or juniper?
This was just a really nice blend. I’m sad we won’t be able to get more of it.
Flavors: Berry, Grapes, Tobacco
Side Gongfu Session (Read previous note):
I acquired 2lbs of this about 4-5 months ago. A friend was trying to rid their stash of a few Teavana teas which they had too much in their storage. I jumped on the chance to get this into my collection.
I’ll admit, it wasn’t my favorite tea, even when Teavana was in business. Firstly, it was too pricey for the quality of the leaf. I felt that it was a mid-ranged TGY, but it wasn’t worth the $25/2 oz that was listed. Fortunately, I worked at Teavana, so I was able to brew a cuppa at any given moment.
Secondly, despite it not being my top pick, I still drank a cup of this on the daily, amongst the other cups I had during my shift. It was something that became a tradition during my time at the shop.
I alternate this one with a milk oolong at work. I think that it’s soothing, despite the fact that it’s two-ish years old. I don’t think that this has spoiled in any way, but it does have a bit of a sour note, when steeped for too long. I noted yesterday, while sharing a cup with a coworker who once was the die hard Teavana fan, that it reminds me of a sour ale. Not for everyone, but the tartness gives it a unique flavor throughout the session.
I like to gongfu brew this, though. I think allowing the leaf to open up naturally, in small flash steeps, results in less sour notes, and more generic floral flavoring during the session. I oversteeped the first two rinses, but the tartness wasn’t as strong as it might’ve been when Western brewed.
I’ve a long way to go until this tea is gone, but I’ll continue to savor each moment, as I typically do with all things that are no longer available.
This is one I really enjoy so I’m surprised I don’t have a note here for it. The aroma is menthol and peppermint candies – the little pillow-shaped ones that dissolve in your mouth. The peppermint is strong enough that it’s making my eyes burn a bit. Do you know the sensation I’m talking about? Like smelling a really strong essential oil. There is a little artificial sweetener taste there but mostly this is just straight peppermint candy. Such a treat.
The more I drink it, the more I’m picking up on that artificial taste. Maybe it’s licorice instead of a fake sweetener. Yup, just looked it up and there is licorice root. Bummer.
Flavors: Artificial, Candy, Licorice, Menthol, Peppermint
Another old tea, another round of questionable coconut.
I really like this one! I was worried because of the coconut, but it is delicious. I think I’ve always put off drinking this one because of the prominence of the ginger. It can really be overpowering sometimes. It’s not in this blend though. I can taste it and feel the spice but it isn’t too much. It’s really like a nice chai.
Flavors: Ginger, Spices
