Ok, so I want to start this review by saying that the tea isn’t bad, not great, but not bad… my experience in the store however ensures I will never step foot in a Teavana store again… So I guess I better start from the beginning…. So, I’ve never visited Teavana before but this morning my cousin sent me a link to a cute tea cup from them I just had to have! Since I was heading to the mall this afternoon I decided to make a stop at Teavana… Big Mistake! I walked in and headed straight to my coveted cup when I was stopped by the sales assistant, would I like a taste experience? ummm, sure, i responded. The assistant then proceeded to walk me through the shop to four different tasting stations before asking me which one I would like to purchase…. ummmm, well the Blueberry bliss pineapple kona seemed nice so I’ll get some of that especially since I dont like sweetened blends… cut to us at the register and she is suddenly pouring tea into a 8 oz reusable container, after I state two or three times that I only want a couple of oz she basically states that shes already mixed the container and its too late i have to purchase…. then she has the audacity to ask if I would like to purchase an additional 8 oz of tea to get a discount, oh and this tea is best with sweetener so i should buy some (didn’t we already have this conversation?!?!?) … so in the end my $20 purchase ended up costing me over $60 – needless to say, this was my first and last trip into Teavana… ok rant over.

The tea isnt bad, she did give me a sample pack with just it in it, however I much prefer David Teas Blueberry Jam and the shopping experience is much more relaxing…

I’m partial to straight oolongs and strong blacks but will drink almost anything if it’s good! I’m also a sucker for coconut, pineapple, passionfruit, mango, raspberry and chocolate flavors and I’m starting to dabble in pu’erh but haven’t found my feet yet….

I’m a displaced Aussie who loves a good cuppa!
