123 Tasting Notes


Man, I always manage to oversteep this, so it always has this bitter aftertaste. Otherwise, the flavor is very mild, sort of a light neutral fruity flavor.
It’s a good blending tea, I think, if you want to try to punch up another drink with some antioxidant goodness, but it’s too fussy and easy to screw up when brewing, and even if you manage preparation times properly you end up with a rather weak tea.


Use more tea :D I will make it for you!


I used up 2 oz bag of this tea and still couldn’t get the steeping right… it’s very tricky to brew.

I’m so bummed that Rose Marzipan Delight has officially been discontinued and my local Teavana is completely sold out. It is such a beautiful tea. It is sweet enough that extra sugar or honey isn’t needed, and the flavor complex and balanced between nutty and floral.
It’s also one of those rare black teas that doesn’t get overwhelmed by bitterness if you aren’t paying attention and forget to take the steeping leaves out after a few minutes.


Count me as also bummed out that this one is gone.- this was one of my favorite treats. :(

drank Sakurambo Vert by Lupicia

One of my favorite teas. It’s very green and fresh tasting. I don’t get an overpowering blast of heavy cherries, more like a light fruity breeze. Perfect for iced tea.


I will have to try this one :)

I love books on tea, but not tea on books.
