Aha! I’ve finally figured out Teavana’s secret to their delicious samples: Use lots of tea!

So true! It made me laugh when I looked at their recipes for how to make tea like their samples. For some of them they use 8 total teaspoons of tea just for a 16 oz. drink. Plus around 5 teaspoons of rock sugar, which is probably close to like 20 grams of sugar! Even if you make it unsweetened, it makes for a super expensive drink if you like it as strong as they make it at the store!

Blended with Adagio’s Dragonwell & iced. Pretty good! But still, a slight bitter aftertaste. Probably from steeping the green tea too hot/long.

Not exactly what you’d expect from the smell, but good. Tart.

Attempt #1 at making Snapple: Tried this iced with Lemon Green from English Tea Store and a bunch of sugar. Not bad, but a kind of weird aftertaste.

Have to use 1.5-2 tsp to get the right amount of flavor, but it’s great when I get it right. Also, this smells AMAZING.
