My mom had some of this in her cupboard from a trip to Teavana we made a while back. It has been discontinued. I won’t miss it too much, it tastes like apple cider with some raisins and pineapple.

I’ve had it before, but not since I started the blog. So when I visited my mom today she sent me home with it so I could revisit the tea and also get a chance to blog it.

In other news she plans to get the Breville One-Touch Tea Maker BTM800XL for mother’s day. I also want one. I promise to do a side by side review of the zarafina and the breville when they arrive.

Post-Steep Additives: none

Resteep: I let it steep forever, I got colored but flavorless water. This is not re-steep-able

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).
