drank Lemon Lime Kampai by Teavana

I didn’t think I’d like this one. I love lemon as a fruit but can’t stand it in tea – although to be fair I am talking about that nasty fake lemon flavoring added on to iced tea. The lemon in this, while overpowering, felt very cleansing in a way. I could see myself drinking this when sick as a remedy of sorts. It will likely not be an everyday tea by itself, but I think the flavor would lend well to blending, so I’ll try and experiment.

drank Strawberry Slender by Teavana

I wanted so badly to like this tea. I think I would have, if the strawberry didn’t smell so artificial once brewed. The smell detracted from the taste, and there was a funky aftertaste (I’m assuming this was the pu erh?) that didn’t seem to mesh with the fruit. I’ll definitely experiment with this tea some more, because I have to use it up, but it wouldn’t be my first choice for a drink right now.

drank Earl Grey Creme by Teavana

I am new to the world of loose leaf tea, but I have always had a fondness for black tea in general. Usually the bolder the better. I love the creaminess of the vanilla in this – the ‘tea’ taste is still there, but it finishes so nicely. This is definitely one of my favorites from Teavana.

My tea habits:

*I am an unashamed Lipton iced-tea drinker (mass quantities, year round).
*I like hot teas but only in cold weather (and occasionally late summer nights or mornings).
*I love Japanese greens (the more seaweed-y the better) and good strong malty black teas.
*I do NOT love smoke in any form.
*Vanilla, cinnamon, or lemon anything will usually pique my interest.
*I’m working on pu-erh but it’s definitely going to take some time to grow on me.
