drank Thai Tea Blend by Teavana
73 tasting notes

I’m curious to know whether the past reviews of this tea were based on Teavana’s old Thai blend or the new Thai blend. The last time I bought Thai from Teavana, in spring 2010, it was still simple, straightforward Thai tea: strong black tea with traditional Thai flavors.

The last time I stopped by Teavana for a refill was in early January. To my horror, the Thai tea I knew and loved has turned into a ghastly over-perfumed mix that they call their “interpretation of the popular Thai iced tea blend.” To be fair, this blend might taste quite nice iced, and I will try it this summer. For now, I bemoan the departure from what I deem “true” Thai tea into this over-flavoured mix of assam, rooibos, star anise, almonds, and “a bevy of” Thai spices.

I feel like Teavana hijacked my Thai tea. :( Now I have to find it elsewhere!
