545 Tasting Notes
I loved this one so much, I had two cups of it. When I first open the package, I can smell the spearmint the most. But when I steep it, it suddenly becomes a wonderfully honeyed version of the original blend.
It’s balanced perfectly and tastes very genuine. I get notes of coconut mingled among the honey and chamomile. They should try to make a Sleepytime Coconut next, haha.
My favorite? It’s a toss-up for me between this one and the vanilla flavored Sleepytime.
Flavors: Apple, Coconut, Herbaceous, Honey, Orange, Spearmint, Sweet
I made this one as an iced tea. I think it’s pretty clear that that is how CS intends for it to be prepared. It is amazing!! Clear, cool, refreshing, pleasantly tart and slightly sweet. Steeps a gorgeous crimson. Hibby isn’t obnoxious either, although I was afraid it would be.
Perfect summertime tea!
Ughhhh. I woke up with a sore throat this morning. I felt it coming on last night and now it’s full-blown. Hoping it’s just a brush of allergies due to seasonal transition and not a cold.
Double-bagged this and added honey. It’s pretty tasty for a bagged tea, albeit wayyyy overpriced. The ginger is soothing to my throat and the honey brings out the pear notes more prominently.
Going in for a second double cuppa of this. Expect more ginger tea reviews from me today!
Flavors: Ginger, Honey, Pear
I LOVE the packaging! The little glass jar with the little wooden scooper is adorable. And very convenient.
The tea itself is fairly unimpressive. Just a sweet, simple mint tea with a hint of rose. It’s blended and balanced well, sure enough. But I think the packaging is way cooler than the actual tea in this case. I’m just relieved that they didn’t put stevia in it.
Flavors: Mint, Rose, Sweet
Ventured into Teavana last night for the first time in over a year. I’ve heard wonderful things about both their Youthberry and Wild Orange Blossom blends, so naturally when I saw pre-scooped bags of both teas mixed together at the front of the store, I had to have one. The two teas I most wanted to try in one convenient bag, AND less time spent having to talk to the obnoxiously perky, aggressively knowledgeable, and pushy salespeople? Sign me up!!
I. Regret. Nothing. This is a perfect tea. It’s a mark of a quality blend when it encompasses pretty much everything I dislike in the tea world (fruity and hibby) and I’m still madly in love with it.
The dry leaf smells VERY strong. I can smell it across the room, and the bag is completely closed and clipped shut. Once opened and viewed, the dry leaf is beautiful. The Teavana signature generous chunks of orange peel, apple, mango, pineapple, whole currants, and whole leaves of white tea all look very graceful together. The mixture is also dusted with something called “fruit powder,” which I’m sure is a flavor preservative/ enhancer.
I’m not ignoring the fact that Teavana is a problematic company.
I steeped this at 175 degree Fahrenheit for two minutes, like the label told me to. The liquor is a bright, true pink. The perfume is heavenly… Sweet, tropical, exciting, energizing.
Upon sipping, I taste the orange and mango mostly, with a note of genuine fresh pineapple in the aftertaste. It’s like sipping a very healthy fruit smoothie. I get what other people are saying on here about the fruit punch factor— it is very punch-like in both mouthfeel and flavor. I didn’t get much in the way of berries this time around, but there’s so much going on in that dry leaf that I’m sure I’ll get different dominant notes each time I scoop some out.
10/10, would recommend! Love it.

No notes yet. Add one?
Got on the treadmill yesterday and my knees were instantly KILLING me. They’re nice and stiff today, too. I’m only 23! What the hell?!
For my sanity’s sake, I’m going to chalk it up to the crazily fluctuating, unseasonable temperatures in my region of the world.
I’m drinking a big steaming cup of this, double-sacheted for good measure. Ginger and green tea are both supposed to help joint pain, so this should alleviate some of the discomfort. I really hope this doesn’t continue after this winter.
I’m down to one sachet after this— I will more than likely restock it. Probably it’s supposed to be a springtime tea, but I like it year round. Coconut, vanilla, ginger, and lemongrass are four of my favorite tea flavors, and this tea contains all four.
