From Teavana

This is Teavana’s interpretation of the popular Thai iced tea blend famous throughout the world. It is a rich combination of Assam black tea and Rooibos tea blended with star-anise, almonds and a bevy of traditional Thai spices. Recommended that you brew it strong for a cup that can be served over ice or combined with milk (or condensed milk) for a flavorful treat. Contains nuts.

Oh… Oh my. Color me pleasantly surprised. Looking at the ingredients list I had been all prepared for another snarky “Oh look, it’s another Teavana candy-tea” review. And as most Teavana teas are, it is very sweet. Open the package and the scent of an almond cookie wafts right out.

But the ingredients are intruiging: pink peppercorns, entire star anise, slivered almonds. Brewed up to a lovely deep amber, it’s like sipping on a delicious almond spice cookie, and I love it. I can see the chai, kind of, and I can see the thai, kind of, but really let’s call a spade a spade. This is a cookie tea, and a tasty, complex and drinkable cookie tea. It’s plenty sweet with no extra sugar needed. I’m enjoying the combination of red and black tea. It makes for very good sipping.

You’ve done right on this one, Teavana. Let’s hope you can make more like this.

Recommended at the Teavana Store at Lex & 87th in NYC. They prepared it for me with honey.

I really like this tea. I’m not sure how to describe it. It’s black tea with spices. Different from chai, but still warm and spicy. This is not something that I would drink everyday, but it is still a really nice treat.

I like this tea straight or in my homemade Malaysian latte. I love Chai lattes and this one is no exception. This is the tea that got me drinking black tea again. I hadn’t realized that all black teas did not taste like Lipton bagged tea.

I know many don’t like Teavana teas, but they are what got me into the whole tea thing.
