5 Tasting Notes
I’m back! I’ve still been drinking tea, but have taken a little leave of absence from Steepster. I’ve been trying a lot of different Teavana teas, just because I know that there’s more to discover with them—at least more than a Celestial Seasonings type of tea. So this was one of my first Teavanas, and I love it. I’ve shared it with multiple friends, and they’ve all really enjoyed it too. It has very earthy tones, and I like that about it rather than the fruity teas that I usually drink. Today I over sweetened it a little bit, so that gives it a different flavor. But I still enjoy it, and it’s a great tea that works just as well throughout the day as it cools down a little bit. Love it!
Got this tea today as my first tea from Teavana. I made it using the Teavana Perfectea Maker. I’m on the road traveling, so I wasn’t able to use boiling water—but the tea was still delicious using water heated the microwave. 2nd steeping was a little bitter, but I didn’t add as much water—I’ll probably try it again tomorrow morning. I’m also excited to mix this with a Dragonwell tea I have from an organic shop I visited a few weeks ago. definitely worth the $10.00!
you probably shouldn’t use boiling water with this tea anyway. It’s a personal choice, of course, but, for me, the only teas I use boiling water on are black teas, and I use boiling water on guayusa, yerba mate, rooibos and honeybush, so long as they are not in blends with other herbs.
Hi there, Mr. Taylor. If you want to have some samples of tea without spending a lot of money, take a look at my cupboard and let me know what you’d like to try out or if it’s confusing…I can select some different types of tea and send them to you. Many of us share samples or we’d go broke! I send samples to college students, people starting out with tea and so on. Check me out. No cost either. I get a lot of my samples from tea companies. I’m the grandma in the room! Take care, Bonnie
Tasting this tea while sitting down with a friend before choir. I have to say, it wasn’t as sweet as I expected with the name “Wild Sweet Orange,” but it is the perfect afternoon tea for a warm day like today. It’s light, but still has a distinct flavor that I enjoy. Can’t wait to enjoy it more as it cools.
