I steeped this blend for 15 minutes and poured over ice. It was the closest I’ve been able to make it to what they serve in the store.

I tasted this for the first time in the Teavana store. It was served cold and sweetened with their German rock sugar. It was cool and refreshing. I really enjoyed it and it will be great when the hot summer months come around. I was just sent a sample of this and can’t wait to make some lovely iced tea.
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.
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.
I have brewed this hot several times, but wanted to try it iced to enjoy this afternoon. I used six tsp of the blend plus 1 very heaping tsp of German rock sugar and brewed for twelve minutes, then strained the blend over ice in a 24 oz tumbler. The hot version is pretty delicious, but the iced version is flat-out fantastic… rather like fruit punch, but more interesting. I even managed to get a second steep out of this (212 degrees for 20+ minutes) which was a pleasant surprise.
LOOOOOVE this blend as an iced tea (even in the winter)! I’ve been dragging my husband with me whenever I went into Teavana and noticed he kept beelining for the sample. He likes his coffee/tea a lot sweeter than I do, so I brew this with a little bit of rock sugar, then add more sugar to his afterwards (and yes, he freely admits that he likes this because it tastes more like juice than tea, haha).
For about 28-30 oz of water, I’ll use 6 heaping teaspoons Pineapple Kona Pop, 6 teaspoons Blueberry Bliss, and 3 teaspoons rock sugar. Steep for 10 minutes with boiling water. Brew over ice, add sugar to his, and we each have iced tea with our preferred sweetness level.
One thing I’ve noticed with this is that the pineapple flavor doesn’t really shine through. I love pineapple but am reluctant to try Kona Pop on its own because of the bad reviews. Bummer.
