Episode 075: Sakura Allure

I do love cherries — namesake notwithstanding — so I had to try Teavana’s Sakura Allure. This is another one of their blends with a ton of additions, including bamboo and cactus. Luckily, most of those flavors don’t really float to the surface — green tea and cherry are the stars here.

It’s a pleasant tea, but the sour aftertaste lingers a bit longer than I’d like. Maybe it’s the cranberry and hibiscus, but it tastes like a lighter version of Tazo Passion. I imagine this would be really great iced!

Episode 154: Caribbean Calypso Maté

Ayyyy mon! I think this may be one of the last Teavana blends in my collection! (I can hear you rejoicing.) This is a really tasty blend I had squirreled away called Caribbean Calypso Maté — a blend of maté, lemongrass, coconut, mango, pineapple, and ginger.

The maté gives a bit of vegetal sweetness that’s accented by the lemongrass, and the coconut and other fruits meld together into a light and flavorful cup of tea. Refreshing and energizing! Teavana doesn’t sell this blend anymore, but the Piña Colada Mango Maté from Totalitea looks like a good substitute.
