I’m surprised I’m the first to log this, but it’s possible it’s in here under another name. I don’t think this is exclusive to Voila! and I get the impression that they don’t craft their own teas…maybe they do! I can’t get a response from them no matter what I do…

Anyway, this is a great harmony of gunpowder green (a favorite of mine) and crisp peppermint. It truly is a refreshing treat!

Preparation
175 °F / 79 °C 4 min, 30 sec

Sounds awesome!

I used to love gunpower green & peppermint over ice. Currently I’m not into mint that much, & I have to admit, the name of a tea must hold some influence for me. Menthos? : )

I don’t ever want to run out of this tea. I love how flavorful but light it is. Bliss. See other notes, this is a cupboard staple.

Reposting from earlier – wrong company! Oops!

Thanks KEEN

It’s been a while since I’ve had a nice honeybush! This is pretty good. It’s mostly that honeybush flavor but also has a very little bit of citrus flavor mixed in, too!

It’s a nice relaxing cuppa. A good comfort tisane!

Pretty Good!

KeenTeaThyme

Sorry about that! :)

Thanks to Sare (not By Bo lol) for this sample! MMMM it’s so good. I can taste hints of cherry and cream or almond. It’s very sweet and you can still taste a little green tea. This is very delicious! Thanks again Sare!!

I am just unable to escape migraines this week. I’ve accepted it, begrudgingly. So now I am enjoying lighter green teas that aren’t too harsh on my stomach. This is a perfect fit for me today. The light blend of green tea and mate is playful and delicious. I really enjoy the smell and taste – like grape, passion fruit, cherry, honeyed almond and blissful innocence. It’s one of those rare teas that smells and tastes virtually the same!

A quick note: I accidentally steeped this for longer than I usually would steep a green tea, but it’s a tough tea – no harm done. Still tasted smooth and delish!

love the name of this one. not too sure about the ingredients but I do like most of them on their own, sounds like an interesting tea.
hope you feel better!

Sorry about your migraines. If you have some puerh’s they might help both the stomach (which is where my migraines bother me most) and the migraine itself with caffeine delivery which is also good for you (per my neurologists).

KeenTeaThyme

@Bonnie: thanks – I can’t choke down the puerhs yet! I’ve heard good things about the tea as well, but my tastebuds aren’t having it. Yet. @Cup of Tree – thank you! It’s an interesting blend. Even though it lists mate, I swear it’s just a small amount total. This really seems more like a green tea to me, rather than a blend.

Bonnie

Made me laugh..I thought you’d have tried something like the breakfast blend where you can’t really taste the puerh. Oh well. Hope you are better soon. The weather has been kicking up my migraines a bit lately too.

TeaBrat

I think I have the same tea form a different vendor.

Enjoying this iced… OK, you caught me, it was brewed hot and then I got sucked into a project at work and now it’s cold. But it’s still absolutely delicious! :)

I brewed this iced yesterday while home sick with a migraine. Because it’s so tart and fruity, I think drinking this one iced or cold/cool is better. I’m no fan of hibiscus and this tisane has some. I did sample this in the store (they often have two or three hot teas and two or three cold teas for sampling – take that Teavana! – and this is always there). It’s refreshing, but I think it might be best blended with something else. It’s a work in progress for me. I’ll keep you posted. :)

I got this tea after a fellow customer at Voila told me how awesome it was. “You just want to rub it all over your body,” she said. At first I thought, OK, weirdo, but then I brewed it up myself and I see what she means!

This is in-your-face mango and citrus bliss. I ate some of the mango pieces before brewing – OK, now I’m the weirdo. Dry, this tea smells like sunshine. Steeped, this will knock your freakin’ socks off.

I would rub this over my body, take a bath in it, name my first born after it. It is so yummy – citrusy, mango-y, smooth, sweet and utterly satisfying. If you want a mango tea, you really don’t – you want this tisane. If you want an afternoon tea, you really want this. Trust me, it’s phenomenal. Delish. Worth going to work to enjoy (I left my tin there). So, so, so yummy!

I finished the cuppa before I finished this posting. Seriously.

mango… ugh looks like their internet site is down for maintenance. I would order this in a heartbeat to try. I am the queen of mangos.

KeenTeaThyme

If you want a sample, PM me. I can send you some. I plan going back there for more very soon so I don’t mind sharing! :)

Kittenna

Mango N Friends is one of those teas that multiple vendors seem to carry, so I’d suggest just looking up the name on here. I think Azzrian sent me some from… the English Tea store? I’m positive it’s the same tea…

Bonnie

Sooo funny!

Yum yum! This is terrific both iced and hot – there’s a hint of cherry and almond with lots of green tea deliciousness. This is playful and fun. A cupboard essential!

This very fine Japanese green (made from the powder left over during sencha and gyokuro production) has a very fresh, vegetal scent. The brew is mellow and has a definite astringency.

Pretty nice.
