I’m a DAVIDsTEA person and I had never actually bought a tea from Teavana before, so I decided to try it out. I bought this tea because I usually like mates and it smelled incredible (even though at teavana they apparently only fan the air next to the tea into your face, instead of actually letting you smell it like at DAVIDs… am I bitter?).
I brewed a pot of it and was sorely disappointed. It looks like sludge and instead of the chocolatey, bright, almost wood-ish smell it has when its dry, it has an almost burnt smell when it’s steeped. It tasted like nothing. I found myself struggling to try and drink the tea as fast as I could just to make it go away.
Would not buy again, and honestly I probably wouldn’t shop at Teavana again.
