From Teavana

This tea evokes childhood summers in the bright blaze of a blueberry patch. The sun streams into green rooibos with sweet fruity aromas, capturing the essence of summer in berries, grapes, black currants and hibiscus flowers.

Rich notes of blueberry, raisins, and black currants.

It’s still way too hot today for me so it’s definitely time to bring out the fruit teas and go crazy.

In raw form this tea has large, whole blueberries and it smells so juicy and delicious. Just like blueberry jelly sweets. :)

Once steeped the tea is dark red/purple in colour with a sweet and juicy blueberry aroma.

Flavour is spicy and fruity but no so much blueberry as it’s scent suggested. There is little sweetness which again is not as much as in the scent. Still putting those aside it’s light and quite juicy and refreshing. For being blueberry there is little to no tartness which is surprising. Overall I think this is a pleasant light fruit tea, more blueberry mist than blueberry bliss but never mind.

I’m tempted to dock them a whole bunch of points for overcharging me by a ton on the loose tea that I bought at the same time, and putting way more in the bag than I initially asked for. Anyway, I generally dislike the way Teavana does business, but it’s the only tea shop in the mall, and if I’m in the mall then an iced tea is my consolation prize. So I got the Blueberry Bliss to go, iced in addition to my loose tea.

This one is really, really good iced. I’d probably hate it hot, but I love the combination of cold and blueberry-roobois. I picked this having had prior good experiences with this type of flavor. The SA seemed really confused that I didn’t want it sweetened and commented that Western women didn’t usually take their tea plain (She was Vietnamese). What can I say? I like unsweetened iced tea. Anyway, I’d drink this again… next time I’m in the maul- that is if I decide to give Teavana any more business.

While that stinks, that isn’t fair- I’d put a review up for that specific location in the places section.

It’s especially rude that she gave you the impression that she thought you were ordering it “wrong”. I can’t even tolerate sweetened iced tea so I probably would have come back w/ something smart like “Well, if you sweeten it I’ll to a spit take”. You’re lucky though. The only place I can get tea (not fast food “iced tea” or grocery store bottled) is at Gloria Jean’s. They do have a pretty good selection of Harney and Sons bagged though.

SoccerMom

If it is the same vietnamese lady that manages the Teavana at the Willowbrook mall location. I have issues with her too she always puts way too much in my bag and looks at me wondering if I will notice and the first time I didn’t but now I’m on to her! She always looks at my selections and tries too make me blend various concotions too!!!! :(

Lisbet

Yes!!!! I think it must be the same woman- she acted like she didn’t know what she was doing, but it was totally a setup. And she was really pushing the blending thing. Ugh.

S

Teavana sounds horrible. I’ve read so many bad things about them that I’ll never buy from them.

I sympathize with the sales associate though…I imagine most Americans do order their tea sweetened, and she probably just wanted to double check.

Lisbet

The question was totally fine with me. Giving me about 10x the amount of tea I asked her to put in the bag wasn’t. She managed to confuse me with her questions until I wound up paying almost $40. I should have refused to pay, but I was doing that “oh dear, I don’t want to make a fuss” thing that I do. And I even went in knowing that all the employees there deliberately overfill the bags in order to upsell you.

Cofftea

The customer is always right. It also depends on if she asks “do you want it sweetened?” or “You don’t want it sweetened?”.

Lisbet, thanks for the upsell warning. I will deliberately do math before paying for my purchase. I got confused… you said “an iced tea is my consolation prize” so I thought she filled a tea bag, let it steep, then iced it or something… $40 for that would be INSANE!

S

Lisbet—I totally agree, that sucks about over-filling. I just meant regarding the question…if you’ve ever worked food/retail, I’m sure you’re familiar with the crap customers give you if you don’t prepare something exactly right, so it’s best to ask to double check. But yeah, eff Teavana. Over-charging + crappy tea = no business from me!

SoccerMom

Lisbet, I go to Teavana all the time (I have a teenager who wants to LIVE at the mall) and so I know how she operates now. I always dread seeing her but I have to have me Zingiber Ginger Coconut so I put on my determined face and go to battle for my ZGC! LOL

Cofftea

Shanti, couldn’t you just buy it online (if, of course, you don’t mind the shipping- Idk how instore price compares to online+shipping)? That would be, of course, if you liked their teas. I’ve only tried two. I really like Sweet Oolong Revolution and Garden Aria is ok… it’s just not my cuppa- but I bet a person that enjoys hot fruit flavored white teas would really enjoy it.

SoccerMom

Yeah Shanti, Teavana actually has some great teas and tea blends if you do not want to “battle” for your tea just order online.

S

Almost all the reviews of Teavana teas I read here are negative, based on the flavor :/ I’m not big fan of hibiscus, which they put in a lot of their teas, plus all the fruit they add seems extraneous. It’s usually the flavoring, not the fruit bits, that add flavor to the tea. Meh. But also, I’m not willing to support a company that treats its customers badly. Have you seen this before? http://www.teachat.com/viewtopic.php?p=82428 It’s really disturbing.

S

*customers AND employees

Lisbet

Wow….. Shanti it seems like my experiences at Teavana were just the way they do business. I’ve never had someone sneakily get me to buy $40 worth of tea before, and am planning on writing an email to the company to complain, so they at least know that another customer is onto them.

S

Lisbet, you really should. I’m not one to complain about little things like incorrect steeping instructions (at least, incorrect for me) or misspellings, etc., but THIS seems like something really worth mentioning to them.

Lisbet

Okay, they just got an earful via email. The tea I bought is $10/2 oz so the lady must have given me 8oz even though I asked for 50g (about 1.75oz). Good lord.

S

Geez…that’s awful.

SoccerMom

Shanti, The story you posted is SADLY not a new one when it comes to sales. In fact it is VERY similar to my experience while working with Mary Kay Cosmetics several years ago.

Lisbet

I realized in reading this later that it was very confusing- I bought two things at Teavana- the iced tea to go (thankfully no grief from them about making me a to-go drink, but I’ve never had a problem with that), and a bag of chai. The chai was what was the super overcharge aggravation.

Hannah

Agreed. I just wanted it to make Red, White, and blueberry mojitos that I saw online in their recipes. They also put way too much in and kept asking “Is that okay?” at 4oz. and I said “NO”. I walked in and specifically told them which teas I wanted and that I only wanted 2oz. They need to stop saying that they sell it starting at 2oz because I’ve yet to find someone there who can correctly measure the tea I ask for.

Lisbet

Ugh, I am tempted to only buy from them online in the future so I know upfront exactly what I am getting. I probably ought to boycott them altogether but I am weak :)

Hannah

yeah.. I was reading reviews though and someone recommended the website http://www.specialteas.com/ for their similar and much cheaper blends. They have just as much variety. Someone suggested it was the same tea, but I’m not sure that’s true. There are however very comparable blends like one called blueberry cocktail just lacking the rooibos of blueberry bliss. If you’re going to buy online I’m sure there’s plenty of options.

S

SpecialTeas and Teavana are the same company, owned by the same people and everything. (Some other companies re-sell the same tea made other companies, but SpecialTeas and Teavana are directly linked and owned by the same entities.) Personally I avoid both places because I’m unwilling to give them my financial support.

Lisbet

I did not know SpecialTeas and Teavana are the same 0_0 wow… whoops.

Hannah

ooh. yeah. I personally prefer the same— to not buy from either.

I really enjoy this one hot – although it’s great iced and blended with Strawberry Lemonade too. I’m a huge fan of blueberries and this tastes like fresh blueberries – not freeze-dried, petrified or HIBISCUS-ladden berries.

It’s also pretty sweet – and no, folks, I did not put in any sweetener like usual. (GASP) Perhaps the plump berries help with that.

This reminds me of summer and lazy days. Perfect for today’s crappy weather day (it’s rainy and gross).

gmathis

I like this one iced, too.

Slurp

Hmmm, like that strawberry lemonade tip!

I drank this all weekend. I drank it hot. I drank it iced. Both were great. This is, by far, one of my favorite tisanes. I think one of the only draw backs is that the smell of the dry tea is so strong. My entire house smelled like blueberry for a while. I didn’t mind it so much, (there are much worse things a house can smell like!) but it bothered my husband. Even so, this will be a mainstay in my cupboard. I’ll just do my best to make it while my husband is at work. ; )

Cold steeped this one last night so I could take it to work today in my jug. Even after a litre of it I wasn’t sick of the flavour. Sadly I used the last of the leaf I had to make it.

Regarding the dry tea: the blueberries clumped together a bit and made it hard to measure what seemed to be a fair quantity of fruit vs. rooibos. However, I must have gotten the proportions right. It’s nice and smooth and fruity—not a bit of tart. Rooibos is one of those funny ingredients that only goes with certain things, but blueberries work. Great chilled.

Backlogging for this afternoon:
Very fruity green rooibos! Nice and light not too heavy on the tea boldness but has a nice blackcurrent flavor! Had this one ICED and it was beautiful. Even for non tea lovers, it’s a nice summer drink on a hot day. Like Rabs said earlier, gotta go through a few not so good ones to get a good one! This was so true today! Absolutly delicious, reminded me of like a blueberry lemonade but not too tart, just a little. Ahhh just so darn refrehing! A nice thumbs up from me :)

Rabs

Hooray! Finally the turning point! :D

This is not a favorite of mine as a hot drink. It is much better cold and even best when blended with some Earl Grey or Earl Grey Creme. However, I like the nice full flavor profile and that it is both naturally sweet and tart——though not too tart like many blends that contain hibiscus.

Boiling 5 min, 30 sec

Definitely agree—it’s much better iced!

I will start out by being very honest, I hate blueberry flavouring. I like fresh blueberries, but I hate blueberry flavouring and scents. So I knew outright I was not going to like this tea. It came as part of my tea of the month club.

I think the best I can say about this tea is it does taste exactly like artificial blueberry flavouring. Like the kind they use in cereals, ice cream, lip gloss, etc.

I do not like it.

Anyanka

I’m with you. Fake blueberry is repulsive to me and I stay away from blueberry teas because I’m worried that even if they used real blueberries, they’d try to kick it up a notch by adding some extra flavoring.

Chizakura

Yuck. Lipgloss tea. Blech. I’m seriously thinking that Teavana literally doesn’t have a single flavored tea that doesn’t involve artificial ingredients.

Even DavidsTea has multiple options without.

Nxtdoor

You have a teavana membership? I thought of it but I don’t know if I want to commit since there’s so much other tea I’m tempted by.

Lala

I subscribed to the blissful moments tea of the month club for 6 months. Every month you get two 2oz packages of tea that you can enjoy individually or mixed together. It is supposed to be caffeine free but some months I have gotten white tea. I wanted to try it just because you could blend the two teas together. I don’t think I will renew it but it was nice as it forced me to try some teas that I normally would have never bought, and I ended up liking them.

I really loved this tea hot, but I have to admit it did not take half as kindly to being cold steeped. I chucked a scoop in my Timolino and tossed it in the fridge with ice one evening, hoping to be greeted by a blueberry tea in the morning. What I got instead, was hints of blueberry but a ton of rooibos flavour. Cold steeping really lets the rooibos in this tea shine, not a great thing in my opinion. I will, however, continue to really enjoy it hot!
