From Teavana

Get ready to be blown away by this breezy romantic blend of ‘superfruits’ inspired by the Spanish coastal cafes and bars that dot the shore. Whole sweet grapes, strawberries, raspberries, black currants, blueberries, cherries and elderberries- seven sweet fruits- frolic in the sun and create a dark fuchsia cup of fruit-filled flavor. Amazing and tantalizingly delicious when served over ice. SUPERFRUIT ENHANCED

Bright flavors of grapes, cherry, raspberry & blueberry

How to Prepare
Use 1.5 teaspoons of tea per 8oz of water. Heat water to just at boiling (208 degrees/98 degrees Celsius) and steep for 5-6 minutes. For stronger flavor, use more tea leaves. 2oz of tea equals 25-30 teaspoons.

Ingredients: Green rooibos, hibiscus flowers, grapes, elderberries, flavor (strawberry, raspberry, cherry, black currant), black currants, blueberries

Yeah well ummm too tart for me – I had to add far too much sugar to enjoy it and then well it was far too much sugar.
I can tell there are some amazing flavors lurking in there waiting to take front and center stage but once again a good blend ruined by filler (hibiscus) SIGH.
Not terrible – I drank one full cup (6oz) but dumped the rest.
:(
Nonetheless I do want to thank Sandy I know I sound TERRIBLY ungrateful and I don’t mean to – it looks beautiful smells great and should be a wonderful blend I just can’t get past the tart. I have never liked tart much though not in candy or desserts or pretty much anything.
So Sandy thank you for being so generous to share this with me I do appreciate it. I have enough left for at least 2 or 3 more cups if anyone would like it.

I hate when hibiscus overpowers every other flavor—used in moderation it can be nice, but it’s often applied so heavy-handedly that teas get unbearably tart.

TeaBrat

I’ve had too many Teavana experiences exactly like that.. :(

momo

I blended this with Blackberry Mojito, oddly adding more hibiscus-heavy tea made it far more bearable.

Daniel Scott

Oh man, I hate when that happens with hibiscus! I didn’t originally understand why so many people hated it, but now that I’ve seen so many teas ruined by it, I’m starting to hate it too. Especially in an iced tea, I feel like hibiscus can totally ruin it – when I get iced teas in stores, I now specifically request that they only recommend me teas without that ingredient.

Azzrian

Yeah and I don’t mind sweet tea either it was just way too much. But others really liked it so maybe its just me!

Sandy Stith

You aren’t ungrateful. You’ve seen my posts, too. =)

Azzrian

Thanks Sandy! :)

Scatterbrain

Lucky for me I love tart flavors and I really don’t mind hibiscus. :)

Azzrian

If I still have any of the sample laying around I will put it in your box but this is not the same one I already listed that I am sending to you. Hummm I don’t know how much of this she sent – will look :)

Azzrian

Wow maybe it is the same because I am not getting anything labeled JUST Strawberry Sangria to come up. Now I have confused myself even.

Scatterbrain

Oh okay. You don’t have to do that for me if you don’t want to, I just thought maybe you made a typo because I couldn’t find strawberry sangria on steepster.

As a hot tea, it tastes like hot fruit punch. It’s a bit much. Because that was a bit much, I didn’t want to just pour it over some ice after that. I ended up cooling it off and then pouring it into water, 4:1 water to tea, I’d say. It makes water more interesting to drink, but holy crap it is way too sweet for me as tea! Of course if super SUPER fruity is your thing, you’d love this.
Since it does have a bit of that sangria aspect to it, I imagine using it with club soda, and tossing in some berries in a pitcher would be a delicious take on sangria without the alcohol. But really, as tea, I just can’t.

Thanks for the heads up.

momo

also want to throw out there that out of the seven berries, only 2 are actually in the tea and 5 are flavorings. and there’s plenty of hibiscus to go around.

Tamm

I was actually looking at this one in the store today and comparing it to the Opus Rouge that I did purchase earlier. They look very similar. I had a bit of the same problem with the Opus Rouge, it’s super tasty, but not exactly what some would call tea.

momo

I bought that one too. It smells a lot more interesting than sevenberry, but it sounds like I’m gonna need to mix them to get that tea aspect back. At least if Opus Rouge is like how it was described I will be content with it, this one I hadn’t been too sure about.

Tamm

Oh I totally agree about the smells. I just smelled this one again in the store yesterday and in comparison it’s a bit boring. How many of the new ones did you get?

momo

Just those two, for now at least. The acai mate one sounds interesting, and I may splurge on the Golden Mojito if I see good things about it, I love the Blackberry Mojito green tea, it’s probably the best thing I’ve ever gotten from them.

Tamm

The acai mate one is awesome! I smelled the golden mojito but wasn’t blown over by it. Maybe later I’ll try it out. I haven’t had the blackberry mojito green one, but now I’m pretty tempted!

momo

Good to know, I am definitely going to check it out! Blackberry mojito was my top choice for iced tea this summer, and it’s pretty good hot too.

Tamm

I have to admit, lots of these would probably be perfect iced, but I need to come up with a good way to do it b/c I haven’t been very successful.

momo

I have had the most success and gotten the best flavor out of cold pressing. The tea can’t get bitter that way, and in the case of the blackberry mojito, it really helped the other flavors come through. Just takes a little overnight planning. I have this bookmarked still because it’s super helpful for all the different methods to take: http://store.remedyteas.com/page/Iced+Tea

Tamm

Oh nice! Thank you I’ve never heard of that method before. I know lots of people like just adding ice, but that has never gone well!

Ok so the description of this tea and the ingredients list GRAPES. But there are no grapes in here. There are raisins. Raisins are not grapes! Just saying!

This tea has a strange smell. There is a tart blueberry smell but almost like a yeasty, bread-y smell. Very tart smelling.

The tea is super tart. Thanks Hibiscus! I think though it an be controlled with a shorter steep time. After you choke down the initial hibiscus flavour, you can taste the black currant and elderberry. I get raisin but no grape flavour, HA! There is a very faint blueberry taste in the aftertaste. I do not get sangria at all. So I guess that means I get to open a bottle of wine and make some real sangria. Mmmmm!

Right now I am not liking this one too much, but I think it can be fixed up and blended with something to be a bit better.

This is where i tell you raisins are grapes?

Lala

Ha ha. I know. Raisins are dehydrated grapes, and they do not taste like grapes. I deteste raisins, so to me there is a huge difference between a grape and a raisin.

Wait, a Teavana blend that isn’t overloaded with hibiscus? Can it be?

This one surprised me. Hot, it really isn’t that great or different than the million other fruit teas that Teavana has, but I cold brewed it overnight and wow. I really enjoyed the cup I had this morning. I didn’t sweeten it at all, which is rare for me in my iced teas, and got a nice slightly dry cup of fruit flavour. I can’t pick out individual fruit notes, but overall this is lovely for a summer iced tea. I think it would be amazing as a punch with gingerale as well.

Another swap from Lariel
Was feeling “berryish” tonight and this looked good.
Surprise, surprise it smells like berries and rooibos…
Deep red coloring looks very appetizing (looks like red wine to be honest).
The taste is very tart. High citrus note that runs to the front of the line. It’s STRONG on the fruity/citrus taste. So much so I can only vaguely taste the rooibos. It’s certainly unlike any other flavored rooibos I’ve had…I like it in its own way. Imagine it would taste awesome on a hot summers day iced.
I’m sure most of the “professional” tea connoisseurs would claim the berry flavor is way too powerful. Luckily I’m just an amateur hack and like it the way it is :)

Got this in a swap from lcg842 (this is my first try at bolding something, I hope it works!).

This is some serious fruit. I can taste the hibiscus and it’s pretty strong, but honestly the berries (and they merge into this one giant BERRY flavour rather than get tasted out individually for me here) are overpowering everything in this blend. It’s really sweet too. It’s a little much for a hot tea, I imagine it’s much better iced (and therefore watered down substantially).

Agree the berry taste is extreme, for some reason I actually liked it that way. Also agree it should taste good iced.

Standard hibiscus-based blend – this means, of course, that hibiscus is the strongest flavor by far. I can pick up hints of currant and maybe a bit of blueberry as well, though. It’s quite dry, but not especially tart in my opinion (for a hibiscus tisane, anyway). I can’t taste the rooibos at all – not really sure why it’s here, actually. It’s pleasant, but it isn’t something I’d go out of my way to drink. Thanks for the sample, Nicole Martin!

This blend is sweet with a definite tartness. I think it’s best served sweetened when hot to help tone down the tartness a bit. Just be careful with the sugar, it doesn’t need much because the tea has a natural sweetness. It brews a beautiful grape-ruby-red and the dry leaves smell kind of like a fruit punch kool-aid packet and sweet tart candy. I quite enjoy the smell. :)
I prefer to make this iced because I find the cold temperature cuts some of the tart flavor (of course I use the cold brew method so I don’t know if that makes of difference). I used to love this blend when I was extremely new to tea but now I find it taste too much like juice. In fact there’s not really much tea at all, mostly berries. If you want a low calorie juice drink this is great, but if you want to taste the tea I would steer clear.

I just read about your experience with Teavana in your review of them.
That sounds horrible. I agree, at the very least they should have resent the package.

Like me, it sounds like you take great notes as to how long you waited, when you called, etc. If you feel so inclined, I invite you to put all of those details in an email (or snail mail) and send it to them. I feel you deserve some kind of credit at least equal to what the package cost you. I wouldn’t hurt to ask.

Here is what I believe is their corporate address: 3630 Peachtree Rd., NE Suite 1480 Atlanta, GA 30326.

PurpleMushie

Thanks for the tip, I think I will write them a letter. :) At most I’d be out the cost of a postage stamp and never receive a reply.

SimpliciTEA

If you do send them a note, I would be very interested in hearing how they respond. If you wish, you could alert me by posting another comment here, by sending me a personal message (as I am following you), or you could even post it in a Teavana discussion thread that already exists, or start your own.

I’ve had this hot, and it was nice. Very berry-ish and fruity. Iced though, this REALLY shines. Its got a hint of tartness to it, and the red color from the hibiscus makes it feel like you’re drinking some sort of sugary punch, when in reality this is actually sort of good for you! Extremely refreshing and a great thirst quencher. I double the amount of tea because I prefer a stronger tea. I find I need to do this with most Teavana teas. I would strongly recommend getting this for iced teas, especially in the summer.

I had this later in the day yesterday, when my throat was not quite AS sore. I mixed a little Pineapple Kona Pop in there too, because I like that tea more when blended with things. It’s fine on its own, but its flavor profile is a little shallow. A lot of pineapple, a little hibiscus, a little rosehip, but not much else. However, mix it with something like Blueberry Bliss or Sevenberry, and it adds a little something to an already pretty good fruity herbal tea.
Anyway, enough about that one. I’m actually not terribly fond of Sevenberry by itself either, but mixed with PKP, I drank it quite eagerly, despite having oversweetened it just a bit. The rooibos in heavily flavored teas doesn’t bother me so much, which I suppose is one thing that Teavana does very right, in my book. Sevenberry is pretty heavy on the fruit, with some help from a few other herbs to give it that tart winey flavor that Teavana was going for. It’s about as close as a tea has ever gotten to tasting like grape juice, at least as far as I’ve experienced. Worth trying, but not my favorite.
