Always one of my favorites to drink although I did notice yesterday, using my Breville One Touch Teamaker for the first time, it wasn’t as strong as I liked even though I used the strong function. I might have to set it to custom so I can have it steep for longer. Still a great cup of tea though.

I may have gone a little crazy at Teavana yesterday and bought about $50.00 worth of tea. Some of which was 75% off so I really went for it. I’m looking forward to trying the others that’s for sure.

This blend was a sample that came with a recent order I had made.

Not a lot of rooibos teas catch onto my radar, much less rooibos blends, but it is summer and this is one of the teas that Teavana is heavily promoting, one must give it a try.

The leaves, both dry and steeping, give off a faint fruity aroma. I can tell this is a very sweet tea, and I believe the scent is quite dark. It isn’t a familiar sweet scent, rather interesting and made me all the more curious.

The first initial sips give a very fruity rooibos flavor, the blueberry very dominant. I like that there wasn’t much rock sugar in this sample, as complaints of it being too sweet had me a bit worried, but I can see how more rock sugar can make this blend sickeningly sweet.

This could probably use less rooibos and rose, and more pineapple, as it is too dark. It also might be that this blend probably shouldn’t be consumed hot, but rather iced, which I could see making this more enjoyable.

Despite, through the rooibos and rose, there are nice fruitful flavors that I do enjoy, and it seems there are more details that I might catch with second or third brewings.

A rather middling blend, but I’d reserve a final decision after trying this iced.

This tea has an absolutely refreshing taste as an iced tea. I fell in love with it about a year and a half ago when I stopped in to Teavana during a trip with my friends. Make sure this tea is good and cold though before drinking because this tea is mediocre at best when brewed hot.

I really liked this in store and, after rocking my way through 50 grams of Pineapple Kona Pop in a matter of weeks, I thought I would also give the blend a shot. Love it! The pineapple falls back and the blueberry starts to take more of a center stage in the flavour. The tea is very berry influenced (as opposed to the more tropical taste I had been expecting). Unsurprisingly, it does not taste the same as it does in store. Funny what not adding a ton of sugar can do to the taste of the tea? Nevertheless, even without copious amounts of sugar the tea tastes wonderful!

I got this as a sample with my Teavana order. It’s ok, but it’s way too sweet for my tastes.(I usually NEVER use sugars..) I can see why they recommended trying this iced. I think I’d really enjoy this tea if there weren’t as much rock sugar in it. Very fruity and you can definitely taste the blueberry.

Cold brewed this one to take to work the next day. Well, I got snowed in so I’m just now getting to it. Fruity, guilty pleasure. I’ve also decided I need a container specifically for cold brewing tea, I probably would do more iced teas if I did. For some reason (laziness regarding making ice cubes) I don’t like brewing hot tea and pouring over ice.

This tea is very good. My daughter loves this one too! I replaced her fruit juice with this cold tea to decrease on her sugar intake.
I like drinking it hot as well. It’s caffeine free, so I can drink it at night.
I need to purchase more because it was all gone now. I bought just 200 grams to try and it only lasted 3 days. Btw, brewing this tea will make your house smell so good. I really love the smell. :)

Teavana teas themselves are unsweetened, so the rock sugar is touted as the solution to customers who can’t quite recreate the flavor of this sample at home. However, the official Teavana recipe for Blueberry Kona Pop is as follows (for a 32 oz teamaker):

1/2 cup Blueberry Bliss
1/2 cup Pineapple Kona Pop
1/2 cup German Rock Sugar

brewed for 15 minutes and poured over ice, as per doubling-the-tea-strength-to-avoid-dilution guidelines. It’s a TON of sugar. It’s almost viscous when drained and poured. And it’s delicious.

There’s almost no flavor of tea- though it’s an herbal blended with a rooibos, so perhaps that’s to be expected- and with the heap of sugar added, it tastes far more like juice than tea of any sort. If you catch it later in the sample’s life (or if employees haven’t added enough ice), it does tend to get somewhat watered down, but when it’s done right, it’s sweet and tropical without being overwhelmingly so; the blueberry is definitely the predominant flavor, with the pineapple as more of an overtone and aftertaste.

(As a side note, the rest of the sweetened samples really do contain only about a teaspoon of sugar per cup, at least as of this writing. I promise.)
