Where I live there aren’t very many stores that sell loose-leaf tea, so when I stumbled across Teavana in a local mall I couldn’t resist taking a look…and a taste. They had this blend as a sample (with sugar) and I bought it along some other things too. As others have commented…they do quite a hard sell there but since I don’t have a lot of choices I just go in expecting to smile and say “no thanks” a lot.

But I digress…when I had this at home without the sugar it seemed really tart with a lot of citrus “pucker”. So then I added in some of the German rock sugar (which they also succeeded in selling to me) and that seemed to mellow out the tartness a bit. I’ve had it almost every night for about 3 weeks now and I’ve actually gone back to having it without the sugar.

Overall I think it’s a nice herbal-type tea to enjoy in the evening…doesn’t keep me up at night and makes me feel like I’m having a treat. Don’t think I will get it again though – there are so many other flavors to try!

Crazy non-stop days drove me to get back into loose leaf tea so I could have a few “moments of zen” while waiting for my tea to brew!
