Art of Tea sample 3/24

This tea is a beauty to brew. It is the perfect essence of fall. A marigold mixed with changing oak leaves. The color is an amber mixed with orange.

These herbal fusions taste more “grown up” than others I have tasted by Teavana. Instead of being overly fruity and syrupy (which I love, and they have their place), this is like a wine full of apricot and pear notes, rounded out in taste by the rooibos. I really like how the apricot flavor comes out in this. I didn’t even know this tea had rooibos in it until I read the description. The leaves were hidden in a tea sac style tea bag that was closed on all sides.

I would certainly buy more of this tea. Especially for nights where I need no caffeine. Thanks again, Jaime, for making these samples possible:)

That sounds lovely. I take it the hibiscus isn’t too strong a flavor? I’ve had it overpower enough blends that I always worry when I see it on an ingredient list…

This one’s a favorite of mine, too. I’m glad you like it!!

Bio

Live in the cornfields of IL, but not too far from the city. Expecting a baby any day now (due Oct 24 2011). Sticking to mainly herbal and low caffeine teas for now. Trying to encourage my husbands tea drinking, but he adds so much sweetner he may as well just drink diet pop. I love trying new teas, and will try any tea once.
