My friend Bobbie came over with this pre mixed from Teavana, so we didn’t even have to mix our two separate bags of tea we had ordered online.

The tea is not very distinct in it’s flavoring, it’s just a fruity floral light tea. We all still love this mix, but it doesn’t hold the complexity or distinct flavors you would expect from a well proportioned mix.

Post-Steep Additives: none

Resteep: lost track of the time, had to leave it on a while to get flavor, the jasmine is much more pronounced in the second steep, but still a very generic fruit taste.

Bio

I am The Devotea USA. I love caffeine! I prefer tea to coffee. I prefer my flavors to be in your face, not subtle. I plan to use this blog to keep track of the teas I have tried.

I get my daily dose of caffeine from Starbucks (Grande soy no water chai latte).
