Not that I drink Teavana tea at the store either....
Why doesn’t the Teavana tea I brew at home taste like it does at the store?
I don’t find this to be much different than when I get tea brewed at other tea stores. I find Davids tea also puts almost double of the tea in for a cup, then what they recommend you use at home. Starbucks is the same.
Maybe it’s because I’ve never tried a sample from their stores, but their blends have never seemed weak to me and I got a ton of them in the Heavenly Sale and as xmas gifts.
I actually tend to not prefer the tea samples. A lot of times they are too sweet! I’m also the type of girl to ignore instructions and just do it by taste. If I did try the samples, and bought the tea based on it, yeah, I’d be annoyed too.
