I suppose this tea is tolerable, but it certainly is not one of my favorites. The sage is much too heavy for my taste, or maybe that’s the buckthorn that I’m tasting? It is much more tolerable hot than cold, but I prefer cold tea…

I love this. It’s my favorite herbal or tea blend. I’ve been trying to find a similar one elsewhere, since it’s fairly expensive and I moved away from the Teavana I used to live near, but I’m having trouble finding anything that compares.
I’m not sure I have much more to say in addition to what others have already said, other than that I do make it sweetened, and Teavana does demo it sweetened, so if you try it without the sugar it will taste differently.
Since it’s herbal, you can also steep it forever without making it bitter. I like making this when I know I’m going to be distracted because it won’t suffer for it.
This is hands down the best tea Teavana sells, in my opinion. The citrus, lavender, and sage flavors are all equally present and they balance each other very nicely. I like to add just a hint of sweetener and ice it. The only issue I have is that I go through it super fast and don’t like paying any of Teavana’s jacked up prices, so I must wait for it to be on sale before I get more!
