I normally don’t shop at Teavana because I find the sales associates to be far too pushy, but since working in the mall, I’ve established who isn’t and I go in when they’re working. Regardless of this, I’ve always found Teavana to be quite pricey so I tend to go to local tea stores or my all time favourite, Davids.
I wanted to get some teas for the last blast of summer heat that Canada is experiencing and with the help of the non-pushy sales girl opted for 50g of Sakura Allure for one of my teas. The smell of it in store was overwhelmingly cherry, however once I brewed it, I noticed it was much more tropical than it smells. It’s a shame in a way since I was looking for a pure cherry tea, but I still have Indian Summer (Davids) as well to deal with my addiction to cherry flavoured teas.
Overall I like it – the green tea base was a good choice and I love the subtle hints of rose. I’d purchase again.
