drank Dragonfruit Devotion by Teavana
1212 tasting notes

So now you can get a “free ounce of tea” with a Starbucks reward but this actually means you still have to get a minimum two ounces and pay for one. Whatever. Aren’t you surprised that something involving Teavana wasn’t fully revealed?

I actually had no idea then what to get…not that I knew what I wanted in the first place. So with that on top of my 40% off I decided to go for four ounces of this once I smelled it and saw the ingredients. Hell, it smells so good this girl who was waiting for a prepared cup of tea had to get some too and she wasn’t even directly in the path to have the lid fanned at her!

Most of my glasses anymore are these free beer glasses I keep acquiring somehow. I got two two days in a row. Technically the other one was $12 but it paid for beer and a donation to a non-profit but yeah, they’re the perfect iced tea glasses if you get one that’s more like a pint. This tea just makes way more sense iced and I was having it with dinner, which was homemade pizza, so good choices all around.

I actually don’t think I have ever had a dragonfruit, but I think this tastes more of guava and there is something oddly floral about it. I assume that’s magnolia. I know the floral flavor of rose or jasmine but this was just very different.

I ended up resteeping the same tea and having it iced again and that toned down the floral aspect of the tea while keeping the fruitiness. It was just a bit much in a full glass of tea and I don’t think I could have handled a second.

I think this ended up being like $2 an ounce for me so that’s awesome.

i don’t like fresh dragon fruit. i find it disappointingly dry compared to how exotic it looks. but it’s great in this tea…. and it awesome mixed in with ‘weight to go’ (stupid name) and cold steeped.

You have to get a minimum of 2oz to redeem your reward??

momo

yeah. I was discussing this with someone yesterday about how it made sense but now I don’t remember what it was. But it would be nice to at least make that pretty clear instead of going in there thinking it’s going to be completely free and no money will be spent.
