Recent Tasting Notes
I remember having a bag of maharaja chai many years ago, so I was happy to see a little sample in a previous TTB. The scent really takes me back. The flavor isn’t very complex. It’s sort of just a tang of cinnamon stick. It’s a little thin, and I never used to drink it with milk, but I tried some this time and think that helped a bit. I’m not really sure what the samurai chai mate adds since I feel like I only taste the other tea. I don’t need more of this one, but it’s always nice to sample some classic Teavana!
My sister had a sealed tin of this from many years ago, and we knew it would probably be weird, but we decided to give it a try anyway. Yeah, I really didn’t like it. The powder didn’t mix up very well, and the flavor was super savory, powdery, and unpleasant. My sister thought it was fine, so I let her have the rest of my cup. I’m sure it was better fresh, so I definitely won’t rate it.

I remember liking this tea years ago, so when a bag popped up in a recent tea box, I was happy for the chance to try it again. This really is one of the better EG cremes I’ve tried. The flavoring is interesting and tasty. You get a little bergamot, but also the nice creme and some other flavor notes happening. I’m not sure I would really be able to tell this is EG without the label, but the flavors certainly combine pleasantly. The whole thing ends of pretty light, mostly just tasting like the fake creme flavor, but I like it.
Another gift from a friend.
Drinking this cold today. I had it warm over the weekend and thought it would be a good candidate when chilled; it is better cold, in my opinion.
The description on the container states that orange is the key flavor in this, but I don’t taste that at all. I taste mango, pineapple, strawberry, and some sort of artificial candy flavor that reminds me a bit of Hawaiian Punch. It is fine if I am in the mood for something like that. It isn’t something I’d grab if I was in the mood for tea, though, since you can’t taste the white tea in it at all.
Overall, I’ll save it for when I am in the mood for something fruity to drink—it’s definitely a healthier option than Hawaiian Punch! :)
Flavors: Candy, Mango, Pineapple, Strawberry
Something I received as a gift. I was pleasantly surprised by this tea! As someone who generally drinks heavy, black teas, the description didn’t appeal to me very much initially but I have grown to appreciate it for what it is: a light tea—perfect for evenings. The lemongrass is the strongest flavor, with spearmint undertones. Sadly, I don’t taste the green tea at all. I appreciate having this for times when I am in the mood for something completely different than my usual.
Flavors: Lemongrass, Spearmint
Got a cup of this from Starbucks and it over-steeped on the car ride home but I was just so excited to have a cup of plain green tea that I didn’t care. It’s vegetal and perhaps slightly nutty-tasting. It was also sweet aside from the slight bitterness from having over-steeped and buttery with notes of seaweed in the aftertaste. It was too early in the morning for me so I wasn’t really paying too much attention to the cup aside from how much I enjoyed it.
Flavors: Butter, Seaweed, Sweet, Vegetal
This doesn’t have much flavor, even with less water, so I’m leaving the tea bag in. I think I’m picking up some pineapple flavor? I don’t really like this so I’m putting it in the fridge to see if it’s better cold. Will follow up later.
Later . . .
This is gross. Being cold doesn’t help it at all. It’s a drain dump for me.
Note: This was a sachet from Publix, not an old Teavana loose leaf blend, so I don’t think this was due to age.
Sipdown! (61 | 265)
Had one wrapped sachet of this from a swap.
It’s quite good actually! I’ll be honest, I never expect much from Teavana… But this has a lovely rich vegetal and nutty flavor. Smooth and comforting, and very good for a teabag!
I could definitely see this being a nice option for a good bagged green tea, but I’m a homebody so I have no need for teabags, heh… XD
Flavors: Creamy, Grain, Nuts, Smooth, Spinach, Vegetal
This tea is really not as good as I remember from years ago. Possibly that is in part because the tea I have is a few years old (though well-stored). It has a marked minerality, and is a bit astringent and quite drying in texture. I think my initial favourable impression of it was probably due in part to its being the first loose leaf oolong I ever tried, about a decade ago now. Having tried many good oolongs since then, it no longer seems as delicious.
Flavors: Astringent, Drying, Mineral

#drinkwhatyouown January spot 20/25
Tuesday 2/9 So from Starbucks when you used to get free refills on brewed coffee/tea while in house I’d sit around in Starbucks and get “refills” of teabags and just put them in my purse as I would continue drink whatever tea/beverages I had with me. Anyway, this was 2 teabags best by almost 4 years ago, brewed lukewarm and plain.

Anise was the first thing I smelled and tasted in this first steep. There is a sweet cinnamon note lingering too. Can’t taste any of the bitter, smoky mate, and the clove/cardamom you’d expect from a chai is muted as well. This is a nice warming cinnamon, licorice chai. A nice choice for a tea advent!
I seem to be behind on my advent, my excuse is that I was traveling this week. This is strawberry with a slight edge. If it had a salty taste I’d say it was a margarita, but this is sweet like a a strawberry pop tart. Festive for this time of year, I could see this in the punch bowl at an office Christmas party. If I still worked in an office, or we could still have Christmas parties.
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.
