I’m always slightly amused when I see that people still have Teavana in their stashes :) glad it was still good!

Very drinkable, a bit of fruitiness, not too heavy or overwhelming. But not too light either.

drank Caramel Almond Amaretti by Teavana

When Teavana was closing, I bought an 8 oz tin of this, which I finished within weeks. I’ve been thinking about this tea ever since, so when a large bag showed up in a TTB, you can bet I grabbed a decent portion of it. It makes the most beautiful pink cup of tea with milk. The flavor is warm and nutty. Due to age, the flavor isn’t as strong as I remember it being, but overleafing seems to help. I don’t know if this tea is actually that great, but it’s great for my tastes.

A delicious, slightly astringent black tea. The flavor is a bit more subtle than, say, a breakfast blend, but it has a floral complexity that I find compelling.

Flavors: Astringent, Floral

For my first time trying this blend it was actually really good. A lot of the time I find myself trying new teas iced first to enjoy the flavors that way before transferring over to hot. This blend was different, I actually really enjoyed this one as a hot tea after a long hard day. Today especially has been pretty cold so having a good hot cup of tea to warm up with really came in handy!

I also found for this blend there weren’t teas in Steepster to choose from so I had to add my own. The blend that I could find, and many of, was Citrus Lavender Sage by Teavana. I was guessing this was what this blend use to be before the company did their remodel because the blend I drank today didn’t have any sage in the ingredients.

Flavors: Chamomile, Lavender, Lemon, Sweet

Most of my cup of this was drank cold as I was busy baking for my family’s Halloween Dinner tomorrow. This tea bag was given to me by someone who snagged it from their work. It’s actually quite good for a green tea bag. There wasn’t any bitterness or astringency at all which is impressive alone for a green tea bag. The citrus is lovely and fresh tasting and I wouldn’t mind picking up a box of this. Although I haven’t seen this one before so it may be part of an office sampler. I wish this was one Starbucks carried.

This one was extremely sour and It was to the point where after a few sips I had to dump the mug.

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.

Ended up with a light, slightly tart, flavor. I was hoping for the pineapple to come through. That’s alright though, it’s old.

drank Earl Grey Creme by Teavana
1515 tasting notes

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.

I don’t usually care for the EG blends with lavender, but this one wasn’t overpowering like some can be. The base was strong and fortifying – I really enjoyed it.

Such a nice treat for a Saturday morning. I’m really surprised I never tried this one when Teavana was open. If I did, I never left a note about it here. It’s a fluffy marshmallow bergamot delight.

drank Youthberry by Teavana

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

drank Jade Citrus Mint by Teavana

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

Mine was made by a Starbucks barista so perhaps they made it poorly. The beginning flavor was light and not noticeable different from a normal green tea. End flavor tasted like a pile of cut grass that had been sitting for a couple days. Drinkable but barely.

Flavors: Cut Grass

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.

drank Beach Bellini by Teavana
1738 tasting notes

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.

Flavors: Pineapple

Weird, I remember people going wild for this one when it first came out. I haven’t tried it.

It may just be my taste preferences. I was never a big fan of Teavana’s Pineapple Kona Pop either, at least not by itself, but my husband loved it.

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

I also own some of this very, very old tea! I’m glad it seems to be holding up.

Cameron B.

I think mine may have been semi-recent, as it said Starbucks somewhere on the wrapper…

Leafhopper

Ah, that makes sense. I have some of this tea from when Teavana was still an independent store.

gmathis

I haven’t been in a Starbucks for years, but need to burn a small gift card. May have to see what they carry in the way of Teavana items locally.

AJRimmer

Oh I have a Starbucks gift card too and didn’t even think of that! Thanks for the idea, gmanthis!
