From Teavana

The newest craze in cocktails inspired this fusion of real fruit, herbs and flowers with mate tea. Our mock martini is a classy notch up, first blending ‘superfruits’ acai, blueberry, raspberry and blackberry. Added to that are crisp granny smith apples & sweet pineapple, brightened with the zesty citrus notes of orange, lemongrass and hibiscus. Cheers! SUPERFRUIT ENHANCED

Decided to have this iced with lunch. I didn’t think I would like it too much but I absolutely love it. I definitely would not drink it hot because of the tartness, but there’s so much going on that it doesn’t bother me.

I can actually even taste the mate. There’s an herbal taste to it that’s not all spearmint. And it’s very sweet and fruity all on its own. I taste blueberry, pineapple, raspberry, apple…I just wonder…if it’s called ACAI matetini, where on earth’s the acai?

But that would figure from Teavana, wouldn’t it.

My parents are in Tortola today on a cruise, and I asked them to bring me back coconut rum from somewhere if it’s super cheap. But even without any rum in this drink, I feel like I am on an island in the Caribbean too. Just wish I had the food of the cruise but that’s just because I’m lazy.

Thanks for sending me this in a swap, Tegan Fyretyde!

So today I decided to finish this tea off. I was actually a little disappointed because it was the first time I was actually doing it exactly according to the brewing instructions. I added less leaf than I normally do and it was not as shockingly flavorful.
I think that this particular tea has run its course with me. Although it’s an interesting blend of fruity flavors and packs quite the tangy punch I don’t see it as a contender for other blends.
This tea would be great for my friends who do not normally drink tea. For me it was decently tasty, sweet and just enough stimulant to get me going.
edit I’m also going to add here my short review of my Teavana tea pot I’ve been using.
I got the Belle Amitie glass teapot for my birthday. :) It is very pretty! There really have only been two problems with this pot. The first is I didn’t quite realize how large it was. I now commonly use my 8 o.z. glass pot from Dragon Tea House in favor of this one. 32 o.z. is too large for just me. Especially when I re-steep my teas.
The second (and largest) issue is the strainer. Although it does look natural with the set it just doesn’t work well as a strainer. The water doesn’t move through it well and little floaties get EVERYWHERE. I’m not one that likes that. I end up using my old coffee filter trick to strain this after steeping.
Overall I would give this a 3 1/2 stars out of 5.

Backlog:

Visually, a pretty tisane, but just from the looks of it, there’s a whole lot going on here. It looks more like a fruit/herbal tisane than it does a yerba mate tisane. I can see some yerba mate leaves, but, mostly what I see is huge chunks of dried fruit, which is OK I guess, but, it left me wondering where the mate was.

It’s not too bad though. Lots of fruit flavor. I’d like it better if there was no hibiscus in it. This ends up tasting a lot more like a fruit drink than a yerba mate.

I think this is one of the most jam-packed teas with the most ingredients I have ever tried!

Ingredients: Apple pieces, candied pineapple (pineapple, sugar), hibiscus flowers, rosehip peels, elderberries, green mate, blueberries, blackberries, pineapple chips, citrus slices, citrus peels, apple slices (apple, acidifier citric acid), flavoring (blueberry, pineapple, lemon, lime, peppermint), raspberry pieces, raspberries, cornflower petals, spearmint,

AND…here are my thoughts…

I really thought that with all of these ingredients that it would be really gross BUT it’s not bad! I’m thinking it was meant for more of an iced tea but I am drinking it hot at the moment.

With all the berries and touch of hibiscus I knew the color would be a reddish-purple and I was right. BUT…considering this DOES have Hibiscus in it – and that I don’t usually care for hibiscus – I found this to be surprisingly nice taste-wise.

It does smell much like a mixed drink like a fruity martini or a cranberry and vodka type drink.

I can taste the apple, Acai, berries, and floral notes first and foremost. In the middle of the sip I can pick out the pineapple, and citrus family of fruits. As it cools at room temp I can taste a HINT of the minty ingredients if I hold it in the mouth for a while and then on to the aftertaste. The aftertaste is mostly Apple, Pineapple, Orange, Lime, Berry, with a hint of flowers and mint at the very end.

I’m rather surprised at the way I am enjoying this. I was thinking it was going to be too tarty, too sweet…yes, it’s sweet but there are other factors playing a part and I like that.

Yeah…I like this ok! Shock Factor rating is high! Interesting, indeed!

Teabox B! I swear I’m not trying to try all of the teas in the box! There is a ridiculous amount of ingredients in this one but it sounds pretty good anyway. The blend itself seems like a fruit salad I want to eat. This might be one of the few Teavana blends I don’t mind. The scent of the steeped tea smelled a bit off… literally like vitamins had been melted in my mug. That must mean it’s healthy, right? But the flavor was nice, yet still a bit medicinal somehow… maybe it was the earthiness of whatever yerba mate is included here. So many fruits are here! Those probably tone down the tartness of the hibiscus. Not too much hibiscus, even after a boiled steep for a few minutes. And the perfect amount of stevia or sweetness if they did actually add sugar to it. A tolerable blend from Teavana. There is a little left in the box!

This is one full tea. And surprise surprise I’m not a fan, it’s too tart, too fruity with a hint of mint as it cools. It looks like I should eat it instead of drink it. This one is up for grabs!

Darn, this was on my “to try” list. :(

It was just too…much. Too many conflicting flavours. Tina, we can do a tea swap if you want!

Oooh, okay! Do you see anything in my cupboard you’re interested in?

Picked this up over the weekend. Yeah I got roped in by the new blends at Teavana. A very fruity aroma emanates from this one. The initial taste reminds me of Dr. Tea’s Obama’s Oolong. Further tasting it reminds me of the Passion Tea Lemonade from Starbucks. So it’s a very familiar taste, but with add in the fact that it’s a Mate and all is right with the world. You really can’t taste the green mate. Which if you were new to mate would probably be a good thing because I would say that un-roasted mate is definitely an acquired taste. I definitely like this one!

The wonderful The DJBooth sent this to me as an added bonus to our swap! I’m always game for another mate! Sadly, this one left me hanging. I’m not a hibiscus fan at all, and it seems painfully dominant in this blend. I don’t care for it at all, but I’m grateful for the chance to have tried it! I do like the bright pink color!

Oh! What a pleasantly delicious suprise. Bought this on the spur of the moment today at Teavana and i am suprised how much i enjoyed it. Reminds me a bit of Tazo passionfruit tea. Definitely recommended iced over, as all the fruit flavors are much more distinguishable. I dont taste acai so much but then again i am not 100% sure what that tastes like. Nice light and refeshing.

Thanks go out to Erin for me being able to try this one. I’m glad I did, too, because it is so unique and odd and I like it. Berry and mint aren’t two flavours I normally would mix, but here it actually works for me. There is a tartness here, thanks to the ever present blend ingredient of doom, but the mint helps to offset it. I’m really curious what this one would be like set in vodka — I wish I could drink to try it out!
