639 Tasting Notes
In this sampler pack, this one was fair-to-middling. It’s good if you like coconut, and the coconut flavor works well with the roasted dandelion and chicory base, because toasted coconut is a thing. Not as good as the Caramel Nut and Dark Roast blends, and not something I’d be in the mood for every day… but again, as with the Mocha Mint blend, I’m not unhappy that I got to try it.
Flavors: Coconut, Dandelion, Nutty, Roasted
Absolute perfection for anyone looking to reduce or eliminate coffee from their diet! Will definitely be purchasing a whole box of this flavor. The experience is a lot like having coffee. It smells like freshly-brewed drip coffee and has a similar mouthfeel. Has the roasted bean-y bite that you want in a cup of black coffee, but no caffeine and no acidity. I personally did not add any milk or sweetener to it, but you totally could if you want to and the brew would hold up to it like coffee.
Flavors: Coffee, Dark Bittersweet, Nutty, Roasted, Toasty
Easily my favorite from the dandelion blend sampler pack I got. Just so, so, so good. The sweetness/ burnt sugar notes from the caramel complements the burnt, roasted note from the dandelion root, and the extra nutty flavoring enhances everything as well. Smells heavenly and feels like having a second cup of coffee, but without the caffeine or the acid.
Flavors: Burnt Sugar, Caramel, Coffee, Dandelion, Nutty, Roasted, Roasted nuts, Sweet, Toasty
Pretty good! Perfect, barest hint of sweetness from the dates rounds it out a little and makes up for the fact that the roasted flavor of the dandelion root and chicory doesn’t pair perfectly with mint. Wouldn’t buy a full box of just this flavor, but definitely not unhappy about having it in the sampler pack.
Flavors: Burnt, Chocolate, Dark Bittersweet, Mint, Nutty, Roasted, Toasty
Dug this one out of my tea cupboard and cold-brewed the last of it in a big pitcher. Just to get rid of it. Obviously, it’s super old. But I think since the concentration of the brew is strong, it helped keep the flavoring from being watered down, even with the ice I poured it over.
It’s cloyingly sweet, as was/ is characteristic of most Teavana blends. Lemongrass and strawberry are the dominant notes, with the dragonfruit and pineapple adding a slightly acidic-perfume-y, fruit-punch like kick at the end. It’s not my favorite thing in the world, but it is a lovely bright reddish pink color and it refreshed me just fine during this heat wave in Northeastern US.
Flavors: Artificial, Fruit Punch, Lemongrass, Perfume, Pineapple, Strawberry, Sweet
A good, affordable substitute for the Recover tea from Teavana, which I still miss at this time of year. The ginger and lime together remind me of Coca-Cola, although I got a note of coconut as well. It’s… almost Christmas-y. I quite like the smoother flavor of white hibby.
Flavors: Citrusy, Coconut, Ginger, Pleasantly Sour, Spices
