Episode 018: Toasted Nut Brulee

Teavana’s tea blends can be really hit or miss. This toasted nut brulee blend is a mix of oolong and rooibos along with a kitchen sink of other ingredients like coconut, ginger, and pineapple.

The resulting brew is nutty and spicy and oddly creamy. All the flavors really don’t come together in a very good way, but it’s more palatable iced than hot. If you’re allergic to nuts, you definitely should stay away from this.

Episode 021: Blueberry Kona Pop

Mtume’s “Juicy Fruit” came to mind when I chose this tea. This is one of Teavana’s mixed blends (i.e., a blend of two blends), which consists of Blueberry Bliss and Pineapple Kona Pop. Hence the name Blueberry Kona Pop!

The dry leaves are really floral; actually, it kinda smells like Bubbalicious! It was great hot, but it really shines as an iced tea. It would be great as a mixer as well!

Episode 026: My Morning Maté

Two Teavana teas in a row! (Bear with me — I’m trying to add some variety in here.) Chocolate was on my mind this morning, so I brewed up a cup of Teavana’s My Morning Maté.

This blend is a mix of roasted maté and rooibos along with a big punch of chocolate in the form of cocoa kernels, chocolate, chips, and carob bits. The result is a great full-bodied cup that’s perfect for kickstarting you in the morning. If you’re trying to wean yourself off of coffee, give this blend a shot! I think you’ll like it!
