576 Tasting Notes
Holy heck, Batman! This one is hot Hot HOT! I love it! Basically this tastes like cinnamon red hots – a perfectly spiced tea. I’m a nut for anything cinnamon and this delivers with a punch. I love to alternate between my morning chai blend and this one; one coworker thought I actually lit a cinnamon candle, the scent was so strong! (She’s a new fan to the taste.) This is the first Harney & Sons tea I tried, and from the get-go, I’ve been happily in love. :)
This has a pleasant aroma while brewing and tastes as good as it smells! The chocolate & mint medley is one of my favorite pairings so of course I would indulge in this low-cal dessert. I agree with others that the mint flavor is strong, almost overpowering the hint of chocolate. However, if you steep for five minutes or longer the chocolate taste lingers more. For a bagged tea this is pretty decent. It’s a great AM wake-up tea too!
I really enjoyed the flavors in this unique, strong blend. First off, the aroma hits you the second you open the package. The aroma reminds me of fresh snickerdoodle cookies cooking in my grandmother’s oven. The taste is very similar – strong cinnamon and vanilla. This is a perfect heavy fall tea – and I can’t wait to try it blended with soy milk and honey. However, plain works just perfect.
I’m intrigued about Brandon’s gummy bear tea – ingenious! When can we expect that?!
This is a nice minty flavor, with plenty of spearmint tones and a slight tarragon fragrance. (In fact I smelled the tarragon more than I tasted it). Refresh is definitely aptly named; I do feel this tisane refreshes my senses. I find it perfect hot, during a stressful day or as I unwind. Delish! A side note: I added sugar free vanilla syrup to it and loved the additional flavor profile.
My curiosity led me to purchase this tea – and this was my first purchase from 52teas. I am a definite fan! I’m sure everybody’s will taste differently, but mine was wonderful – very fruity and sweet. I could taste apricot, berry, lemongrass and a hint of ginger in my first cup. My second cup was much more fruity – apricot, cherry and berry. The green tea is high quality, too. Overall, this is a very refreshing and unique blend. Yummy!
This is a pleasant find, although I must admit I was a bit hesitant about drinking a lavender tea (really makes you rethink HERBAL teas, eh?). Surprisingly, this became one of my favorite teas. I love the lavender flavor – and the fact that the tea brews up a bit purple-y tickles me. However, I can’t drink this all the time – once every few days. It is strong, which is nice in a cup or two, but not all the time.
I normally avoid tart teas (or anything with hibiscus as the third or fourth ingredient) but I was looking for a nice nighttime tea and found this one. It’s decent! The hibiscus is very subtle and more floral than tart which I appreciate. Night Night is calming and mellow, a great finish to a stressful day.
I have mixed feelings on this one. I love the aroma of the tea but the taste is off-putting. I think the tea is stale or something, because even if I brew it at 2 mins, the strong taste of smoky lemongrass comes through. There’s not a lot of citrus flavor. I’m tempted to try again, but not from Teavana. Can anyone recommend another brand to try?
