I bought this awhile back with the intention of making iced tea, however the weather has made it all but impossible to enjoy a nice glass of iced tea on our new patio (that we built ourselves ::pats self on back::). I woke up today and it was 50 outside… in June… looks like I’ll have to blend this with some white tea and drink it hot.
I’ve had this before as a blend with Teavana’s Strawberry Rose Champagne which wasn’t bad as long as I didn’t order it to go from Teavana. They have a rather nasty habit of dumping a ton of German Rock Sugar in every drink they make (without telling you first). This isn’t terrible as long as you don’t add sugar to it, that makes it tastes like Peach Os. I made the mistake of drinking my second steep with a little bit of sugar this morning. Peach O tea for breakfast, yum.
This wasn’t overly strong, but it was very sweet due mostly to the candied pineapple. It isn’t something I would drink right before bed, even though it is a tisane, due to the fact that it has sugar in it. Then I would have to get up and brush my teeth again. I like to enjoy my last cup of the day snuggled into bed with my baby as we read our bedtime stories.
My main objection is that the sales staff at Teavana told me this was a healthy option if I liked flavored herbal tea. I’m really not sure how anyone considers a tea with candied anything healthy.
