7 Tasting Notes
this is my favorite so far! i love a nice jasmine tea. this is flavored with peach extract so not overwhelmingly peach but it plays nicely with the jasmine
i steeped for 2 minutes. the pearls werent able to completely unfurl so i will try a second steeping to see how it will affect the flavor
I’m always scared to try peach anything, same with cherry. I love fresh peaches (and cherries), but dried and/or artificial flavors hardly ever compare and are often an affront to my taste buds. It’s good to hear that it’s not overwhelming.
one of my favorite teas is fruta bomba from teavana. its a green with peach in it (and other things). they use real fruit and its a lovely flavor. not overwhelming. on the other hand, teavanas sakura allure is a green that has real cherries and its such a strong cherry flavor that the tea isnt even green, its dark red. i love cherries also, that one is so strong i typically like to ice it to thin it out some
i steeped for 3 minutes which gave it a very light amber color. the leaves were able to unfurl all the way to release the full flavor of the oolong.
the strawberry flavor is from strawberry extract and i think because of this the flavor is very light, secondary, and not overwhelming. the tea has a faint strawberry fragrance also.
overall, i like it. its nice if youre in the mood for a flavored tea that isnt strong.
i caught this at target on clearance (i think because tazo redesigned their boxes). i was very excited given that i like apricot and vanilla. i tried it iced first (as per the box instructions) and it was ultra bitter. poured it out and tried it again hot for 3 mins (as per the box instructions) and it was still bitter. i tried it one more time for only 2 minutes because thats what i brew my loose white teas at; still bitter. also, the temp i used the whole time was the white tea setting. i am really sad, i wanted to LOVE this tea
another one of my favorite spring/summer teas. light strawberry flavor with rose tones. i especially love the little roses in the tea. this one is great hot or iced. lately ive been blending it with teavanas peach tranquility for a delicious iced tea.
