So my town now has the only Teavana in the state. Which seems to be a mixed bag. I’ll keep my store review here short, but I must comment that I’ve read plenty of Teavana horror stories. This store is no different. I went in to buy only this tea and they just won’t take no for an answer. It took 10+ min. when it should have taken 2 min to just bag it and ring me up. I don’t care about health benefits; I care about flavor and price. Yes! Price is an issue for people and when I’m buying one of the cheapest teas in the store maybe it’s safe to say I don’t want a huge tea pot I don’t need and your “special” $20 tea.
The smell of the dry leaf actually reminds me of a “Shirley Temple.” Basically a 7 up with maraschino cherries in it. The brew has a really amazing smell. It’s almost exactly like snicker-doodles. I can’t tell distinctly what the brewed flavor is like but it’s much lighter on the mouth feel than I was expecting. It’s not overtly spicy, which is very nice. The coconut in this cup kind of lingers on the back end of the sip and is just enough to compliment the rest of the flavors. I liked this because it was much less artificial tasting. I can’t imagine adding sugar to this mixture. I can’t tell if there is added sugar but it is very sweet. This my friends, is what I’d call a desert tea. It has great flavor and is easy to brew. It’s also a pretty solid cup for the price.
edit I wanted to add that I got a pretty solid 3 steeps from these leaves. Which to me, has really added to the value. Also, my tea avoiding husband was even tempted into a cup by this one!
