This tea came with the flashed chilled double pack of pitchers from Costco. I actually liked this tea a lot. I just cold brewed it overnight in the pitcher in the refrigerator. It was a nice amber color and had just enough mango or tropical flavor without tasting artificial. I added a few drops of stevia to my large glass and it was just right. I will make this again and enjoy it even more when the weather is warmer

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.
