let me just start by saying Teavana is a rip off and a high pressure sales environment that i detest and believe to be completely at odds with the vibe of tea. having said that, they do offer a small selection of some great teas one of which is their Golden Monkey Black Tea. this is one of my favorite black teas of all time. the flavor is intensely fruity with notes of pear, apricot, litchi, and green pear that is initially delivered with a wet mouth feel that ends with a surprisingly dry finish. if you are fortunate enough to find this tea offered somewhere else for a reasonable price in a comfortable customer is right situation then i highly recommend it. it is intensely delicious!

Theirs is decent, but for a real swoon you might try both Harney and Sons which is deep and dark and rich – I call it Batman, or Teavivre’s, which is equally delicious but different, more like a willowy princess who has it all – beauty, brains, and wisdom. Too anthropomorphic? LOL! I have both if you want to pm me your address and will be happy to send you some samples to try. Did you know that you can sign up on Teavivre’s site or just send them a message here on Steepster and they will send lots of generous samples of tea? FREE? They are truly worth the wait, and most of us end up falling in love with several teas and ordering.
