drank S'mores Oolong Tea by Teavana
296 tasting notes

From the uh, Herbal TTB!

So I was almost 100% sure this was an herbal. I did not see anything that looked remotely like a leaf from the camellia sinensis plant. There was only a tiny amount left in the box when I opened it up, less than I would use for a single pot, so I killed it.

It was pretty good. Like a chocolate covered marshmallow and some crumbly graham cracker. I didn’t like the chocolate bits or the sludge it left in the bottom. But I drank my whole mug nevertheless.

Looking into the infused basket I saw one single leaf and a chunk of stem. Hmm. All the package said was ’S’mores – Teavana.’
I think that just goes to show that Teavana should just go into the tisane business and give up tea altogether.


Their Body + Mind blend is quite good. No fruit in that one.

I dream in tea.

My name is Maddi. I like to take boiling hot showers and meditate in my closet. I think and talk about tea so much that it has become a punchline of sorts with my family and coworkers. Besides my unhealthy obsession with the drink that gives me life, I do yoga frequently, I make green smoothies out of any vegetables and fruit in the nearest vicinity, I am obsessed with Korean Dramas, I run as a form of moving meditation, and play video games with my easygoing and forgiving boyfriend. I used to cook for a living, and I almost always eat at least one waffle a day.

Favorite types of teas:
Aged Oolongs hold my heart. Sneaking their way in are Korean Greens. Roasted oolongs and I are not on speaking terms as of late. Black teas of all types, but especially Fujian and some Yunnan are nice indulgences more often than not. I know and love Japanese greens more than any kind, while Chinese greens bore me. Certain White teas thrill me, but most have me changing the channel. I love using my Yerba Mate gourd, we have become steadfast amigos. Puerh and I are still getting to know each other, and while sheng is playing hard to get, shou is there to hold my hand when no one is looking. I sometimes make my own functional herbal blends, and if there is a hell, it is filled with Rooibos. Above all else, direct – trade tea is my favorite.

LEAST Favorite Flavors/Flavorings
Herbs, if they are out of place (I’m talking to you, thyme)
Strong Bergamot
Chocolate (added flavorings)
Cloves/strong cinnamon

MOST Adored Flavor Profiles
Majority of chai
Stone fruit/melon

“Tea is naught but this:
First you heat the water.
Then you make the tea.
Then you drink it properly.
That is all you need to know.”
