There’s an expression that dates back to the 17th century that “March comes in like a lion, and goes out like a lamb.” This time of year, weather can vacillate between balmy spring-like temperatures one day, or late-season snowstorms the next.
To suit both fickle weather and changeable moods, Teavana has launched two new spring teas that are delicious both hot and cold.
“Teas with a floral aspect are great for spring,” said Jason Adams, Teavana teaologist. “It’s a time when everything is in bloom, and the teas are delicious both hot and iced."
Scarlet Jasmine Tea Blend
To create Teavana’s new Scarlet Jasmine Tea Blend, Teavana tealogists combined two longtime favorites – Jasmine Dragon Phoenix Pearls Green Tea with Dragonfruit Devotion™ Herbal Tea. The result is a smooth green tea layered with vibrant tropical fruit and hibiscus.
“The Jasmine Pearls are a hand-picked spring harvest tea – rolled by hand into tightly shaped pearls,” Adams said. “In summer, the tea is layered with fresh jasmine blossoms, and it absorbs the flowers’ oils to create a fragrant tea.”
Dragonfruit Devotion Herbal Tea
Back for its third spring, the flavors of Teavana’s Dragonfruit Devotion Herbal Tea are steeped with a medley of tropical fruit and flowers. It's a caffeine-free tea with the lush fragrance of rose and orange flower blossoms.
“This is a well-balanced tea with flavors of guava, strawberry, lychee, dragon fruit, rose, and hibiscus,” Adams said. “The fruity and berry notes start up front. Then it goes into tropical papaya flavor and finishes with a soft floral bouquet from rose petals and hibiscus flowers.”
