This… is Forever Nuts from David’s Tea. No, actually. Same ingredients, same exact flavor.
So obviously this tea is DELICIOUS, but I’m wondering how they got away with this… lol! Coincidence?
Anyway, like Forever Nuts, steep this tea twice as long as recommended. It’s yummy!

I am told this is actually a blend from Teaopia that Teavana is keeping just for the season. So if there was stealing done, it was done by Teaopia. Not that I am defending Teavana.

Nope, Teaopia didn’t have this tea or anything remotely similar.
Caramel Almond Amaretti is one of Teavana’s 17 new “Global Treasures” teas, which is company wide in the USA as well. The Teaopia teas are only being kept in Canada.

Hmm okay my informant must have misinformed. Can you confirm whether the twelve blends they have included in this set are Teopia teas? http://www.teavana.com/tea-gift-center/tea-gift-sets/p/12-holidays-of-tea-gift-set

And of course I just now saw your bio ;) Did you stay on for the change over?

Yep I did! I’ve worked at Teaopia for a year before Teavana so I’m pretty familiar with the teas.
To answer your question, the 12 Holidays Set aren’t Teaopia teas either.
Teavana is keeping 20 Teaopia teas on the walls in Canadian stores. Currently they’re in their Teaopia tins on the bottom positions of the tea wall but I’ve heard they’re going to get Teavana tins and be integrated eventually.
Teavana also has 15 teas that are exactly the same as Teaopia teas. (eg. English Breakfast)
The Teaopia teas Teavana is keeping in Canada:
Slim and Slender, Sleep Well, Jiagulan, Mudslide, Creamy Nut Oolong, Love Spell, Spring Morning, Calming, Summer Breeze, Cleansing, Goji Green, Pomegranate Green, Fit Active, Dragonheart, Cactus Fig, Coconut Cream, Fresh Lemon Zest, Caramelissimo, Herbal Chai and Iced Princess.

Thanks ;) My friend Michelle told me that Rob was talking out his behind when he said the Amaretti and gift set were from Teopia. He likes to make it seem he know’s what’s going on and I suppose I made it seem like I did too, so I apologize.
