drank Champagne Sangria Punch by Teavana
39 tasting notes

I was inthe Mall of America Teavana store and thought this sounded interesting, so I asked to smell the tea. The aroma was great as was the descriptive name. However, when brewed it tasted heavy like a sweeter red wine. I guess that’s where the “Sangria” part of the name comes from. There were citrus notes too, but I didn’t detect anything that could lend itself to the “Champagne” part of the name. You cannot re-brew these leaves, the tea is astonishingly weak when you do. And when I took a good look at the tea I discovered there really wasn’t very much black tea in it.

I have to differ from the directions that you put in 1 tsp of tea per cup. With a tea mug that is only 8-10 ounces, I need to put in 2 tsp for black or a plain green tea but 3 for some of the fruit-laden teas. I was told by a sales person at the MOA store that they recommend 2 tsp for a smaller tea mug. That makes this tea more expensive than what the flavor is worth. I won’t buy this again.
