I recently found this tea where it had been forgotten for some time; fortunately it was in a Teavana zippered pouch. I’m drinking it as I write. It’s light, vegetal, grassy, and very refined. Even though it’s a few years old, it has held up well. And no artificial or “natural” flavorings in this one; just pure green tea. Lovely.
Flavors: Grass, Green, Vegetal
The Relaxation Blend is my everything! It’s so soothing, light, and most of all delicious! I really enjoy the lightness of this tea. Since it’s a blend, I love how all the flavors come together when drinking it. All of the flavors go so well together. The lavender, the peach, and the jasmine, simply perfect. I make mine in my Teavana perfect tea maker electric kettle with some rock sugar. Such a treat.
Flavors: Floral, Fruity, Jasmine, Lavender, Peach, Sweet
My favorite Teavana tea of all time. Very pleasant lavender flavor without the caffeine buzz. Amazing tea to drink at night…or any time of the day honestly. I really love that it’s a white tea. There’s just something so magical about white tea. I enjoy the light body of the tea but still comes through with a pleasant flavor. I especially love the lavender dreams tea as part of their relaxation blend along with dragon phoenix jasmine pearls green tea and peach tranquility herbal infusion. That’s happiness in a cup! Lavender dreams alone is simply amazing! I recommend it to all lavender tea lovers.
Flavors: Floral, Jasmine, Lavender, Sweet
I decided to have this one last night. I am still struggling with the fatigue but I am forcing myself to stick it out all day at work this week because my counterpart is on planned PTO. At first I was going to make a black tea to stay awake, but then I thought “Why? If I want to go to bed at 6:30 pm, I can!” So I reached for an herbal tea.
I need to drink down more tea so I can excuse buying more. Something about cold rainy days makes me want to shop for tea. This isn’t a favorite, but I’ll be darned if I will throw it away. The flavor it so mild it is almost non existent for someone without a sense of smell. I wonder what would happen if I added a bit of a chai blend to it? Hmm… maybe I will try that soon.
I had this one last night. It really was very light on flavor. I did get a mild burn at the end of the sip from the ginger. My nose is completely clogged these days. It rained all day yesterday and it is supposed to rain all day today. I want real fall. You know, sweatshirt weather. Deep blue skies, air temps of 62, and a light breeze. Instead we have humid days in the low 80s and rain. Ugh. Here in North Dakota we have 4.5 months of summer, 5 months of winter, and then fall and spring get a few weeks each.
Steepster isn’t posting reviews right now, so maybe this one will never post, If it does, I will say this tea is nice, but not spectacular and certainly not something I would try to find more of.
I had this tea last night. Yesterday was a hot one, but for some reason I felt a bit cool so decided to make a cup of hot tea before bed. I’d picked this one up at a clearance store for cheap. I like ginger and I like lemon so I figured it would be good.
It wasn’t bad. I’m not a fan of chamomile, and that was the prominent flavor here. I didn’t get any citrus, and the ginger was a very mild burn at the end of the sip. Now, remember I do not have a sense of smell, so it is possible I am simply missing flavors others would pick up. Also, since this is from a discount clearance store, who knows how old it is. The flavors may have faded.
There are eleven bags left. I think over the winter I will have no trouble finishing it. I would not buy it again. But 12 bags of tea for $1.99 is not a bad deal so I’m glad I picked it up.
My go-to tea when I go to Starbucks! I usually get some type of fancy hot or cold coffee drink but occasionally when I’m not in the mood for a racing heart and the jitters, I get this! It’s calming and soothes my soul. It’s mild and smooth and bright and I love sipping it while chatting with my friends. Has a pleasant after-taste and doesn’t leave a muddy mouth-feel like some cheap mint teas I’ve tried in the past.
I really can’t detect any lemon but I do recognize a hint of “something” mingling with the mint.
As long as Starbucks continues to carry this, it will always be my first tea-pick from their menu.
The conference hotel charged me a $20 “destination fee,” which translated to a $20 credit at any of their restaurants or the hotel convenience store. Nobody asked for that! I’d rather keep the $20 and spend it however I want! But since that wasn’t an option, I spent it on tea and snacks at the overpriced convenience store instead. The teas they had were Teavana, so I got a cup of this and later a cup of the Jasmine Citrus at highway-robbery prices. Can you tell that I’m salty about the audacity of charging me over $5 for a cup of hot water and 50 cents’ worth of tea? Normally I’d just get the hot water and brew my own, but since I was in a use-it-or-lose it situation with the money I figured I may as well try a couple of teas that I otherwise wouldn’t.
Taste-wise, all the individual ingredients – spearmint, peppermint, and lemon verbena – come through. It’s pleasant enough, though it’s heavy enough on the spearmint to be a bit chewing-gum-esque. Mostly I just wish this wasn’t quite so weak. I kept the teabag in the whole time, so if anything it should have been too strong/oversteeped, but no! Just somehow flavorful and thin at the same time.
Flavors: Lemon, Peppermint, Spearmint
Interesting that I never left a note about this. I certainly had enough to do so! It was…. okay. Spicy, gingery, but… almost too many spices? I don’t recall if I ever thought “gingerbread” too clearly. I’ll admit that I didn’t care for it enough to have finished it off myself – my husband was fed the majority of it via large mugs of tea with honey while sick, as he wasn’t averse to the flavour. I just have so many other teas and flavour profiles I’d prefer to drink.
I still have a few bags of this. I had an AWFUL day at work. I have tomorrow and Friday off so I was cramming to get everything done today. I had a schedule of what had to get done and when I would do it. It was completely do-able. I even made sure I had time in my schedule for the unexpected things that tend to crop up. But it was one dumpster fire after another. Of the 20 items on my list I completed three. I left (35 minutes late) and decided to have tea. I don’t drink alcohol, but days like me make me think I should.
This tea popped out at me. It has a mild, pleasing flavor. I wouldn’t mind getting more, but this was a one time purchase at TJ Maxx, so I will enjoy what I have left. Here’s to a 4 days weekend! Those other 17 items will just have to wait until Monday.
It’s almost time for Advent Calendars! I have my Bird & Blend herbal one ready to go!
I am having this one tonight for my evening cuppa. This is a bit of bright tartness to this tea and it is the exact right amount for me. It is tart without being sour. So many fruit infusions include so much hibiscus that I cannot bear to drink it. Without a sense of smell I taste sweet, sour, bitter, and salty. If I didn’t see the color I can’t tell the difference between vanilla and chocolate. Many teas have a wonderful layered flavor that I simply do not taste. So if a tea has hibiscus I taste the hibiscus and very little else. What some people find a pleasant zing makes my face pucker up. Without the other flavors to blend with the hibiscus … Well, I just can’t drink it.
Luckily, with this one I enjoy the mild zing of tartness. I won’t buy more of this, but I will have no trouble finishing the remaining 7 tea bags of this.
I was standing in line at TJ Maxx yesterday. Even though it was snowing (or maybe BECAUSE it was snowing) I’d gone to purchase a couple of pieces of spring/summer clothing. As I stood, looking out the wide window at the nasty snow, I felt like throwing a tantrum. Like a two year old who isn’t getting what they want. Full blown tantrum, like throwing myself to the floor, drumming my heels and screaming. We’ve had way too much winter this spring in North Dakota. :(
As I was waiting I saw a few Teavana tubs of bagged teas crammed in with the rest of the cart bait lining the checkout queue. This one appealed because it said good hot or cold. Yesterday it was snowing, so that would mean hot tea. But who knows? Next week could be 80. So iced tea. But last night I tried a cup hot.
Anyway, sorry for whining. Here is what I thought of the tea. It was quite good. It brewed up fairly pale, which is normal for a tisane with no tea or rooibos. The flavor was light but with a nice tart zing. Not like hibiscus-sour zing. I do not like hibby, and made sure to check the ingredients to be sure there wasn’t any. I think the zing would have been the citrus. So I will have no trouble drinking these 12 tea bags.
I tried this in the mall when i was 12 and annoyed the f out of the Teavana employees taking free samples, i haven’t stopped thinking about it since. I’m 21 now. I’ve not been lucky enough to find it again, but hopefully soon. I don’t remember much about it now, but I hate tea always have, still do. Somethin about it.
I had this tea again last night as my evening cuppa. I really do like it. This time the licorice flavor was strongly present. It cut through the mint and brought a new dimension to the sip.
Back on December 14, I placed an order at Davids Tea. I ordered 50 grams of Santa’s Secret and a sampler of their Winter Teas. I didn’t expect it in time for Christmas, but I did expect it to be shipped sooner than today. Oh well, It’s not like I don’t have plenty more tea to drink up.
Wanna hear something funny? I mentioned to my brother that I have so much tea I can’t keep track of it all. He said gasp that I should go through it and throw some away!
