I don’t usually buy from Teavana, but I was suckered by a $10 off coupon. This tea was sitting at the front of the store as a sampler, and I enjoyed it. Though, I am bothered by the fact that Teavana sweetens their sample teas. For health, I try to limit how often I put sugar in my tea, so I want to taste JUST the tea.
Right now I’m drinking a 5th steep of this tea. The original was a pretty pinkish red. It was sweet, a bit fruity and a fair bite of jasmine. Five steeps later, Jasmine is the dominant flavour with a slight hint of berry at the end.
Oh, also note that Teavana recommends using 2-3 teaspoons of this tea PER CUP. All I can think about is that this tea is going to last me 2-3 times LESS than any other teas in my cupboard.
Rant moment: It bothered me how pushy the sales person was. She must have told me like 3 times about their horrible “promotion” of buy a butt load of tea and get one CUP to-go free. It was something like you had to buy 100g of teas of 3 teas. I remember doing the math in my head and figuring you’d have to spend at $60-$80 to get your free $4 cup of tea… Seriously??
Anyway, in conclusion I like this tea. But I’m not a big fan of Teavana, so once it’s gone I probably won’t restock. (Unless they have some kind of crazy blow out sale)
Flavors: Berry, Jasmine
