I’ve been avoiding cleaning the house all day today and I just really need to get it done. So I’m having a cup of this tea in hopes that it will motivate me. I really have been wanting to try this one since forever, and the two times I went to the closest Teavana store they were out of it. I even tried to order it online at one point, but it was sold out then too. I think it just sounds so delicious – strawberries, champagne and rose?! Fortunately, it’s pretty tasty too. It’s hard to see any of the oolong in the dry blend, because it’s mostly large pieces of dried fruit and pretty pink rosebuds. There’s really not any oolong flavor in the cup, either. It tastes more like a white grape juice with some rose thrown in. I like it though! I added some milk and sweetener, and the milk made it a little more smooth and added a nice touch of creaminess. I don’t know if I would ever purchase any more at the rather steep price, but I will certainly enjoy the rest of this sample. Thank you, Skysamurai!

-Dry blend has a mixture of medium clumps of green tea leaves with large pieces of dried fruits, pink rose buds and petals and fennel.
-Dry leaves smell fruity and sugary sweet. Tea liquor aroma is of grapes and fruit with a hint of rose.
-Tea liquor is a clear pale pinkish orange color.
-Light and tart grape flavor with a fruity strawberry finish. Lingering rose aftertaste.
-Best with sweetener. Milk optional.
-Very good tea. No oolong flavor noticeable. Reminiscent of white grape juice with a hint of floral rose.

It’s worth a try, Fuzzy_Peachkin! :)

It’s going to be discontinued. That’s why I got some even though it was kinda pricey.

Josie Jade

Oh, that’s sad! It figures, it’s one of the few Teavana teas that I actually liked!

Have you tried re-steeping it? There’s a hint of the oolong flavor for me if I do so.
