Despite the hibiscus I really enjoy this tea. It’s great iced. A restock for sure.

My favorite tea that I have had from Teavana so far, and of course this one happens to be a spring blend that will be gone sooner or later. Stocking up! Such a great blend – you have hints of the strawberry and the grapefruit bitterness lingers just long enough at the end. Great cold with a little bit of sweetener.
I got a $50 Teavana gift card for my bday and today I finally got to go spend it and was remarkably good about not spending much over that (5 bucks.lol.)
I think I may have over sugared this because it tastes like syrup. Blah. I know I didn’t over steep it because I kept a close eye on it. Though maybe I should go for minute and 30 seconds next time…because underneath the hibiscus-grapefruit/cloying sweetness is a strange metallic flat taste. You know, maybe it’s time I cleaned the ol’ kettle out..that could be what’s causing the issue. And to those who might ask: I only use water in my kettle and no we don’t have hard water…but it’s been quite a while since I’ve cleaned it out.
Definitely best iced IMO. And sweetened. Unless you are a big fan of that grapefruit pucker, then it should be perfect as is. I can’t say I taste any green tea, it’s really mild, either that or the fruit is just steam-rolling it. lol. It is quite refreshing though!
I was at the mall to go to the Apple Store since my phone is a jerk. I had like 20 min to spare so I went over to Teavana to get a cup of tea and surprise! new teas! The sales associates were trying to figure out what to do with the weird marshmallow one, and this sounded good so I smelled it…if you just go by smelling it, that’s not the way to go. Because it smells SO strongly of grapefruit.
I decided to get a cup of it iced to go drink while waiting for my appointment, just slightly sweetened. It was really good, almost like a fruit punch with a little green tea instead. The strawberry and orange were stronger than grapefruit…I drank it way too fast and ended up having to get some for home.
I didn’t even know it said it’s recommended iced. Given it turns hibiscus pink, that’s obviously the first ingredient so yeah. But it’s surprisingly not that tart. I did sweeten it but just a little.
