Departing from my day of only drinking things I’ve already opened to try this.

I’m so confused, though. There are two Youthberry entries for what looks like the same thing (they’re both white teas with a bunch of other stuff in them including acai berries, mango, pineapple, currants, etc.) and then there are a bunch of other Youthberry combos. I picked this one for my Youthberry note. Mine’s a white tea with all the foregoing stuff plus more in it.

I’m pretty sure I got it as part of the tea of the month club. I was holding the open packet in my hand when the BF walked in and announced he could smell it across the room and he really wanted some of whatever it was.

It’s another of those visually attractive Teavana fruit blends with pieces so big I’m really sort of shooting in the dark on the measurements and leaning toward severe overleafing. In the packet it smells very floral to me, a sort of mostly hibiscus with some rose fragrance.

The liquor is a very light rosy pink. There aroma of the steeped tea smells very hibiscusy, sort of tart-bitter. Rather medicinal and not at all promising.

Fortunately, it doesn’t taste as scary as it smells. In fact, it might be that the tartness really cuts the plantiness that white tea can have—which may explain why I like white grapefruit blends.

Sacrilege, I know, but this is one hibiscus and rose hip blend that doesn’t make me pucker like a fishface and run for the sugar. There’s actually a sugary, dewy sweetness to it at the end of the sip and in the aftertaste. I wouldn’t know an acai berry if it hit me in the face, but perhaps that’s what I’m tasting? With an undercurrent of currant, pardon the expression, that pulls the flavor a little deeper and keeps it from just skidding along the surface.

What I’m not tasting or smelling is the mango, pineapple, etc. except in a very general sense, which enables this blend to completely avoid any association with Adagio’s White Tropics. I really like it more than the Shanghai Orchid of yesterday and will jigger the ratings accordingly. Time will tell if it is a restock, but at least it’s one Teavana blend I have that hasn’t been discontinued.

ETA: The BF loves it.

This tea smells absolutely incredible! Unfortunately, whenever I’ve made it it comes out fairly bland and weak. Maybe I’ll make some pot-pourri with it.

try 3 tsp per 8 oz. I read online that Teavana baristas use TRIPLE the amount they reccomend for at home in the store. Perhaps to sell more tea…?

Wow. That’s insane. I’ll have to try that next time I want a fruity tea.

i really enjoy this tea. its, for me, the poster child of a flavoured white tea. Its fuity and light but contains a natural sweetness that only amps the taste of the actual tea leaves. As every flavoured white should be. It tastes like peaches, strawberry, pineapple and of course acai. i really enjoy teas like these and they make me realize why i love tea so much.

although I had a cold sample in the store, when hot tasted a little bit fragant, love that’s white tea based, sweetened with a dash of honey. It’s tasty & yummy having it cold, let’s see how the second steep comes up.

I love this tea! It’s the perfect tea for summer. It’s light and fruity, which is definitely a guilty pleasure for me! I’ve been following the brewing instructions (although giving it a little more time on the second steeping) and it’s been perfect!

I tried making this tea so many times and kept saying to myself “give it a chance!” Months passed by and before I knew it the entire tin was gone and I was left thinking that I gave the tea plenty of chances to redeem itself. I don’t quite know how to describe it, but this tea had almost a sour hint to it. Perhaps I can describe it through feeling: when I sniffed this tea, I felt like I would get a headache. This was just not my cup of tea.

I got a sample of it from Teavana and have yet to try it…

I wouldn’t be surprised if you absolutely love it – others’ reviews are much more favorable than mine :)

The dry scent of this is simply fantastic. I steeped the leaves for 4 minutes per the instructions on the bag (really, Teavana? 4 minutes for a white tea?) The first few sips tasted lovely….a subtle, clean base with bright, sweet, juicy notes of berry to round things out. Halfway through the cup I started detecting bitterness (I’m guessing from the amount of steeping time?) All in all, this isn’t a bad flavor, but I’m not especially drawn to it. (then again, I happen to have a thing for green or black teas anyways) I’ve tried this blended with the wild orange blossom from Teavana, and after having it straight, I think I prefer it blended.

Had a sample of this and it is exquisite! I even thought about making some into ice cubes for the summer time. GREAT hot or cold :)

I found these sachets last night and it made me so happy! I missed this blend so much when Teavana closed. Sachets aren’t as good as the loose leaf version; this version has a fake-y scent to it. It’s still good though. I get notes of mango, pineapple, candy, hibiscus, and orange.

Glad to see that Starbucks hasn’t completely pulled the plug on one of my absolute faves.

Only have about 10g left. It’s better cold then hot. Steep it too little and there isn’t enough flavor, steep too long and you get a slight bitterness from the white tea. The smell is great but overall a little too light for my taste.
