drank Rooibos Tropica by Teavana

I’m going to be honest here and say that I’ve never tried this on its own, because I first bought it as a blend with Jasmine Dragon Phoenix Pearls. (Yes, I DID have to look that up to remember the whole name. Thank you for noticing my dedication.)

I really do love this blend. It’s brilliant hot or iced, and the green jasmine pearls help to balance out what could be a much fruitier tea. It’s great for when you want something light and refreshing. This would also be a good candidate to add powdered caffeine to when you want the pep of soda without the sugar or carbonation.

drank Pear Luna by Teavana

I’ve just never really enjoyed this tea, despite the lovely scent. It’s just always been a bit anemic and boring to me. So it’s been sitting in the back of my cupboard for about 2 years now, getting no love whatsoever.

Now, however, I’m on an iced tea kick, and trying to creatively use up my old stash.. I mixed it with a blend of Teavana’s jasmine pearls and rooibos tropica. I like it more this way. The flavor does come through a bit, and it adds some complexity to the dominant flavors of the other two.

Still not one of my favorites, as I don’t necessarily want to HAVE to blend my teas to enjoy them, but if you have some sitting around, try it iced!

LOVE! I’m almost out of this, and last time I made it up to Wegman’s in MD, they didn’t have it..:-( It makes an incredibly good iced latte.. There’s just something about the coconut that makes it better than any other chai.. :-)

drank Vermont Maple by Teavana

Honestly, I’ve never really love this tea hot. It’s sweet and slightly maple-y, but it seemed like there just wasn’t a lot of complexity to the flavor. So it always kind of sat there on my counter, waiting for some attention.

A few weeks ago, I decided to use a lot of the teas that I don’t adore to make iced tea. I thought it would be a refreshing way to move through some of my stash.

I mixed it half and half with a basic oolong that I got at the farmer’s market. SSSSOOOOO good!

The oolong adds that complexity I was looking for, and really backs up the maple and apple flavors. I love it now!
