New Look for Teavana

Hello Passionistas,

If you have been on the blogging journey with me from the beginning, you know that I love Teavana tea. I’ve done a few teavana tea hauls before. In the last haul, I shared some information that I found out about the Teavana brand. Teavana recently closed all of their store fronts and shut down the online store- so no more loose leaf teas from teavanna. But Teavana is far from being forgotten about. The brand is now a packaged beverage sold in Starbucks and other grocery stores.

This weekend I was in Wal-Mart and I came across a display panel od Teavana teas. I got all flavors they had in the store. There were priced at $1.98 (in Walmart) each and these were the only flavors (listed below) that the store I was in had. I hope there are more flavors than just these 4. There are only about 3 Starbucks stores I visit regularly and I have not seen these beverages in any other those stores. So, I’m not sure when and if I’ll be able to buy these in Starbucks (or at least the ones I go to) but I’ll glad I know where I can find them.

Meyer Lemon Black Tea w/ Lime Peel & Lemon grass – UNSWEETENED

Pineapple Berry Blue Herbal Tea w/ Hibiscus & Green Rooibos

Passion Tango Herbal Tea w/ Hibiscus & Cinnamon

 

I love the packaging- the shape of the bottle, the label colors and cleanliness of the product design. Often times Nutrition facts on food/drink products are small and hard to read, but for these beverages I feel like I know exactly what I’m drinking. I appreciate that.

Each of the flavors are ones that I am familiar with. The only one I have not had before is the Meyer Lemon Black Tea w/ Lime Peel & Lemon grass. The other three (Mango, Pineapple Berry, and Passion Tango) I have purchased in Teavana before as a loose leaf tea. One advantage about the packaged beverages is the levels of sweetness. When I brew my tea myself I can sometimes over sweeten them. So with the bottle package and pre made tea it is made to perfection.

P.S. If you see these in store or see any other flavors send me pictures, plzzzzzz!

Teavana Favorites

Hello Passionistas!

It is no secret that I love tea. Last week I took a trip to Teavana to get new summertime tea.

I normally go to teavana once in the summer and once in the winter and buy my tea in bulks. I enjoy brewing a fresh pitcher of tea every Sunday to have for the week.

On a weekly basis, I say that the hardest decision I have to make is my nail color. Until I go into teavana. I think its because I don’t go in the store often and when I do I like to get 4 different blends in bulk. But if you’ve ever been in Teavana you know they have a wall of nothing but tea behind the counter. So I literally stand there for what seems like forever, making my decision. So this is what I got this time:

Hot Pink Lemonade – Citrus Tea

Strawberry Daiquiri -Blended Tea

Strawberry Slender Pu-Erh- Flavored Black Tea

Mandarin Mimosa – Blended Tea

Natural Belgian Rock Sugar

In the store, they bag the loose leaf in paper bags. When I get home, I transfer them into my tea canisters for storage.

Mandarin Mimosa is a blend of two types of loose leaf teas. When I was in the store they were sampling this one. I had like 3 cups as I made up my mind about what I wanted. It was really good, more fruity than sweet.

Hot Pink Lemonade is a citrus tea. I have never tried it before but I thought it would be a good summer time tea that I can mix with fresh squeezed lemonade.

Strawberry Slender is a flavored black tea. I have purchased this tea many times before. I like to mix with pineapple juice and add slices of strawberries.

Strawberry Daiquiri is also a new buy for me. It is a blend of two types of loose leaf teas as well. The loose leaves were sampled in a dish and it smelled so wonderful and fruity. I just had to have it. This tea is actually really heavy with dried fruit, so it may look like you’re only getting a little bit. But a little bit goes a long way.

Until next time,

XOXOXO
