I had Peach Tranquility years ago and love it. I found sachets recently at the grocery store. This version tasted slightly off, like the peaches were on the cusp of going rotten. The other flavors were nice but overall a disappointing experience.

Flavors: Fruity

Yuck.

Advent tea
Anise was the first thing I smelled and tasted in this first steep. There is a sweet cinnamon note lingering too. Can’t taste any of the bitter, smoky mate, and the clove/cardamom you’d expect from a chai is muted as well. This is a nice warming cinnamon, licorice chai. A nice choice for a tea advent!

Advent tea
I seem to be behind on my advent, my excuse is that I was traveling this week. This is strawberry with a slight edge. If it had a salty taste I’d say it was a margarita, but this is sweet like a a strawberry pop tart. Festive for this time of year, I could see this in the punch bowl at an office Christmas party. If I still worked in an office, or we could still have Christmas parties.

This became my favorite white tea for some time due to the amazing floral notes. But since the strong floral notes were so unique, it was only a “sometimes” tea for when I was in the mood for those flavors. I was sad when Teavana discontinued it, and have never found a suitable replacement since.

This was likely the tea blend that got me into loose leaf tea over a decade ago. Teavana often had this as a sample tea, and while I’m not a huge fan of either of the individual teas alone, they blend perfectly. As someone without a sweet tooth, it’s just sweet enough, and can be enhanced with some rock sugar if you like. Very refreshing for a hot tea, and was my staple blend for many years.

Prepared as family pot tea. A tea I have received from derk. Thank you for second chance to try Teavana tea.
It is in high volume pot and 5 teaspoons in my DIY tea bag.

It’s not bad tea per se, but something is lacking. Maybe I have expected more fruity notes. It’s generic, somehow tropical, lemony, but somehow weak.

I have quite a lot left. I will see how it changes, when prepared for myself. Maybe it needs longer or shorter steeping. I let it steep for about 10 minutes, but I needed to steep whole pot, don’t forget.

Overall, quite average.

Flavors: Lemon, Tropical

Preparation
205 °F / 96 °C 8 min or more 5 tsp 85 OZ / 2500 ML

The last few tea pots I made were not as flavourful as my normal mug, but I do think I underleafed. It’s a shame this one didn’t work out all that well for you!

Finishing off this sample from Arby with a second try. The first time, I felt it needed a cooler water temperature so here we are.

Still reminds me of a combination of Yunnan black and Chinese green teas. It definitely very light, like a golden needle or similar tea. I get some light bready, malty notes, and also a strong apricot flavor and slight fuzziness, which brings me more to the green side of things. As it cools, it’s almost completely like a green tea. There’s a light floral note at the end of the sip and in the aftertaste as well.

It’s very interesting, but not something I would feel the need to have around given how similar it is to some other teas. Thanks Arby!
