I think this is going to be my “usual” afternoon tea. At least in the spring and summer months. It's a very light tea, but the flavoring is strong. When I first opened the package, I smelled the strawberry right away. I also got a hint of the peppermint or spearmint (I can never tell the difference in these mints) aromas. It said to add one teaspoon for every eight ounces, but once again, I used one teaspoon for 16 ounces.
This tea is a light brewing tea. It says to let it steep for three to four minutes. I let it steep for about five or six. I really don't think you can over steep this tea, in fact, I think this tea is better the stronger it is. I've only come across one tea that tastes “too strong” when you brew it longer than recommended, and that was the green tea. But the “Weight To Go” tea tasted just fine.
I could definitely taste the strawberry flavors, and the mints as well. I couldn't pick out the apples, but I'm sure it was there. I think this would make an excellent ice tea, and I may try that sometime this week. Maybe after my next workout. Just brew it normally, then pour it over ice. Refreshing.
So, one more positive tea review. So far, I've liked all of the teas I've had from Teavana. There have been a few I've had, but didn't review them. I never thought about writing up reviews for teas, until I got this batch in.
I have one more tea to try out, and that's the “Toasted Nut Brulee”. I'm excited to test that tea out, just from the description alone.
