Average tea. Tastes ok, but not a very powerful flavor compared to the smell…rather subtle. Still ok though; would be best paired up with another tea

I’m going to be honest here and say that I’ve never tried this on its own, because I first bought it as a blend with Jasmine Dragon Phoenix Pearls. (Yes, I DID have to look that up to remember the whole name. Thank you for noticing my dedication.)
I really do love this blend. It’s brilliant hot or iced, and the green jasmine pearls help to balance out what could be a much fruitier tea. It’s great for when you want something light and refreshing. This would also be a good candidate to add powdered caffeine to when you want the pep of soda without the sugar or carbonation.
Actually trying this straight for once – usually I have it with the Jasmine Pearls, but it’s too late at night for that.
A really nice blend – sweet without being saccharine. I’m always impressed at how flavorful and fruity this tea is. Still, not quite a daily drinker for me – a once in awhile, really. I do love it with the Jasmine Pearl, though.
I was in our local Teavana store and saw a sample blend of this tea & jasmine dragon phoenix pearls in a carafe . It tasted really good in the store so I bought a 4oz. bag of it . Now I am having a cup of this blend at home . It is a nice relaxing tea . Glad I followed my instincts and made the purchase .
This is an incredibly sweet tea that just knocks you over with fruit. (I’m not surprised that it’s very often one of the sample teas that Teavana sets out in its stores.) If you’re really sure that you want a sweet, sweet tea, this one is absolutely worth the trouble of picking those little fragments of rooibos leaf out of your tea strainer.
