Backlogging (and based almost entirely on my long term memory)
Experience buying from Teavana http://steepster.com/places/2895-teavana-st-louis-missouri
Packaging: this tea was bought in-store in one of their tall, oval, brownish-colored 8-oz tins (as were the previous three Teavana teas I recently reviewed). They are definitely good tins for storing any light and fluffy, or really leafy teas in (like just about any white tea, or a tea that needs lots of storage space, like a HSMF).
Appearance and aroma of dry leaf: Very aromatic.
Brewing guidelines: Traditional ceramic six-cup teapot, with large metallic tea-ball. Stevia added.

Color of tea liquor: a clear pink color, almost like pink lemonade!
Flavor of tea liquor: Light and fruity.
Blends well with: I almost always blended this with Teavana’s Snow Peak Downy Tips, and they complimented each other very well.
Value: I can’t remember the details on the cost, but I know it was a good price at 75% off.
Overall: This tea looks, smells, and tastes good. It is a great accompaniment to any tea to give it a fruity kick! We have a little of this left, and I look forward to using up the rest.
