I’m amazed to find a white Teavana blend that actually has recognizable white tea in it. All the other “white” teas from them I’ve tried have little bits of leaves that are broken and don’t add any flavor. Here, though, full leaves!
I read that this one is hard to steep—either it’s too bitter or there’s not enough flavor. So I decided to cold steep it, since 1) that eliminates the bitter element and 2) I like my blueberry teas iced. I was worried about the hibiscus but thankfully this is not a tart cup, in fact it’s pretty yummy. Mostly blueberry, I’m not getting much acai but I kind of feel like they slapped that on there because of its “health properties.” I’m sure it’s good for you and all (and Teavana is all about “health”), but it actually has a nice kind of currant-y flavor that I was looking forward to.
But just blueberry is good too, and this is a nice blueberry white though I’m not sure if it’s any better than DAVIDsTEA’s White Tiger or Adagio’s Blueberry White. They all kind of blend together for me! But hey, I got this as a gift and I will certainly have no problem drinking it up.
