I think this is being discontinued as I got it on 50% off sale, no return stamped from Teavana.

I saw such positive reviews on Steepster I decided to try it.

I think I should have chosen mild not medium.

Post-Steep Additives: German rock sugar, sweeter but still bitter.

Resteep: same as the first.

Agreed, I think mild would probably of have been a better choice. I can’t seem to get that acai blueberry one right. It’s always so tarty…

i think the reason i never love greens and whites is they are so finicky – it’s hard to make them right, but when you do they rock

Confirmed that it is discontinued. I wrote to Teavana to ask.

They said that Emerald Bamboo Forest is “quite similar” — which is interesting considering it doesn’t contain any berries.

i HATE when they “re-work” a recipe and say it’s similar, it never it! well that and mom is still bitter over the loss of mrs. earl grey but we might have that fixed soon

Bio

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).

0-25=Bleh! not again if it were free
25-50=Acceptable, if it were free or there were limited other tea options
50-75=I might purchase this tea from time to time, or select it while out
75-100=A staple in our cupboard from now on, I will purchase and keep purchasing
