Another infamous Teavana tea that’s better iced than hot. I enjoyed it as a fan of the flavor profile of blueberries and pineapple. I take my teas sweet, and, like other reviewers have mentioned, it’s pretty sweet. However, I take it iced with a teaspoon of sugar, and overall, it’s a pretty delightful summertime beverage.
I want to like this tea. I really, really do. I got a sample of it with a recent order with teavana and didn’t really stop to check the ingredients. The first cup of it I made was absolutely revolting. It was FAR too sweet for my tastes. I figured it must be the candied pineapple and I’d pick it out before making my next cup. I poured one ‘perfect teaspoon’ of tea into a tiny bowl (it’s a teaspoon I purchased from my local DavidsTea) and was really unimpressed with the amount of added sugar I found. About half of what I scooped out was sugar!
Now this probably works just fine for someone who enjoys sweetened teas (i.e. my boyfriend) but I rarely add sweetener to my teas, and almost never to fruity blends. When I do, it’s often agave or honey, never sugar. I found it just a bit too weak but this is probably because after I picked out all the sugar I didn’t have enough for an actual serving.
I would really like to try this tea again and was seriously contemplating purchasing a blend but I’m wondering if it comes with sugar already added? Can anyone help me out?
I’m going to start off by saying that I’m by no means a master of teas, so I’m just sharing my personal opinions and how I feel about this tea.
Personally, this tea just tastes like glorified fruit punch to me. Like someone else said, it does have a sort of chemical taste to it, which makes me wonder if this tea was made with pesticides. Overall, it’s a very sweet tea and it’s fine iced, but I just believe there are way better teas out there.
I honestly thought I would be a bigger fan of this tea than I am. I usually LOVE blueberry flavor, but for this it was just too tart. I don’t like dumping a bunch of sugar into my teas and I think that’s the only way I would like this. But I don’t like sour flavors, so if you’re into that, feel free to try it.
After always lusting after Teavana items, I finally stopped in and decided to bite the bullet. This was my second attempt at loose leaf teas, the first which ended with me getting swindled into a lot of stuff I couldn’t afford at the time. Nonetheless, the people helping me were so nice and I even got a free cup of this iced tea. I bought the minimum 4 oz blend and I am hooked. I haven’t gotten the perfect brew yet, I think that the store uses a lot more tea than the recipe calls for, but it is amazing and flavorful. New favorite for me!
I love the way this tea smells in the container, which really made me excited to give it a try. I did enjoy it iced in the store, though it was a bit sweet. Once I got home, I couldn’t get the flavor to taste right iced for me yet, so I have been drinking it hot. I do enjoy it hot, the aftertaste is a bit odd, but overall is very delicious.
Like others before me, I tried this blend cold in Teavana. This being my first purchase from the store, I pretty much just told the employee that I wanted “Whatever that is.” I have only drunk the tea hot at home, but I still really enjoy it, despite it being much more stronger in-store.
I would recommend this blend if you’re into fruity, sweet teas.
