This became my favorite white tea for some time due to the amazing floral notes. But since the strong floral notes were so unique, it was only a “sometimes” tea for when I was in the mood for those flavors. I was sad when Teavana discontinued it, and have never found a suitable replacement since.
This was likely the tea blend that got me into loose leaf tea over a decade ago. Teavana often had this as a sample tea, and while I’m not a huge fan of either of the individual teas alone, they blend perfectly. As someone without a sweet tooth, it’s just sweet enough, and can be enhanced with some rock sugar if you like. Very refreshing for a hot tea, and was my staple blend for many years.
Prepared as family pot tea. A tea I have received from derk. Thank you for second chance to try Teavana tea.
It is in high volume pot and 5 teaspoons in my DIY tea bag.
It’s not bad tea per se, but something is lacking. Maybe I have expected more fruity notes. It’s generic, somehow tropical, lemony, but somehow weak.
I have quite a lot left. I will see how it changes, when prepared for myself. Maybe it needs longer or shorter steeping. I let it steep for about 10 minutes, but I needed to steep whole pot, don’t forget.
Overall, quite average.
Flavors: Lemon, Tropical
Finishing off this sample from Arby with a second try. The first time, I felt it needed a cooler water temperature so here we are.
Still reminds me of a combination of Yunnan black and Chinese green teas. It definitely very light, like a golden needle or similar tea. I get some light bready, malty notes, and also a strong apricot flavor and slight fuzziness, which brings me more to the green side of things. As it cools, it’s almost completely like a green tea. There’s a light floral note at the end of the sip and in the aftertaste as well.
It’s very interesting, but not something I would feel the need to have around given how similar it is to some other teas. Thanks Arby!
Flavors: Apricot, Astringent, Baked Bread, Floral, Malt
Another one from Arby (I think). I’ve never had a yellow tea that I can remember, so this should be quite interesting. The leaves are long and spindly, with a mix of dull grey-brown and light gold. They look fairly similar to a Yunnan black tea, and smell a bit similar too.
This is certainly an interesting one. To me, it’s like a mix between a light Yunnan black tea and a dragonwell tea. The beginning of the sip is more Yunnan, with bread and some malty notes, and a light stonefruit flavor. In the middle of the sip, a strong buttery quality appears, and some nutty dragonwell-esque notes. The end is a little bit bitter, and I probably should’ve steeped this at a lower temperature… A light floral hit in the aftertaste as well?
It’s definitely interesting. Holding off on rating until I can try the rest of the sample with a lower water temperature.
Flavors: Apricot, Astringent, Baked Bread, Bitter, Butter, Floral, Malt, Nuts
Wow, that’s the most inoffensive, generic tropical fruit flavor that’s ever graced my tongue. I’m sure this is older’n since this was from Teavana but I guess it’s held up ok… Mild, mineral, lightly fruity, barely sweet.
Flavors: Mineral, Tropical
I had planned for an Earl Grey this morning but as I pulled it from the cubby I realized what I really wanted was chai. I found this opened bag of chocolate chai from Teavana that my husband picked up from the local store right before they closed. I remember Teavana’s chocolate blends being pretty light and watery, so I doubled up and steeped a good deal longer than the package recommended. It’s a good strength, but there is no chocolate to be found – it’s all cinnamon chips. As it cools, I like the flavor less and less so that now it is almost undrinkable.
