The first time I made this I followed “Takeya’s” instructions, it turned out badly. So the second time I made it, I followed “Teavana’s” instructions and only steeped the leaves 1 min with 170 degree h2o, it turned out great. So refreshing and light. Has a vegetal or ( I hate to say this it sounds bad) grassy taste, like green tea should. I infused it with a 1 1/2 cups of cut up honey dew melon and left it, in the fridge over night and scooped out the fruit in the AM. SO GOOD, tasted like honey dew!

This tea is slightly bitter, with subtle mango, pineapple and papaya flavor and heavy coconut flavor. Smells So GOOD! I add a few lemon slices with the “German Rock Sugar” from Teavana, just 3 teaspoons for me, I like my tea very lightly sweetened. No, I don’t love it but its good and very refreshing on a hot day. Its a little to much coconut, I think it over powers the rest of the fruit flavor, that’s why I add lemon slices. I have never been a huge coconut fan. My son really likes it and my boyfriend likes it but I don’t make it sweet enough for him, so I will add agave to his personal glass.

Profile

Bio

Just a young lady who really loves tea, and has no one in her life that loves tea as much she does. I just started my tea journey back in October of 2012, to try and cut Coke out of my life, I was drinking to much of it! Tea has really helped me, I have always liked it, but never knew there was such a thing as loose leaf and A HUGE community of tea lovers! I am crazy about tea and my friends think I am crazy, “what’s the big deal, it’s just tea” and other phrases like that. Just want to get to know others who share my “crazy” tea passion.
