November means holiday collections everywhere and Teavana is no different. Many of you will know that I prefer DAVIDsTEA over Teavana for various reasons. The primary reason being that I can buy smaller bags of tea at DAVIDsTEA to try before spending money on 50g+ which is not available at Teavana. Plus, with more stores, DAVIDsTEA is more accessible for me and I have never quite got over them buying out Teaopia and closing down my local store. There is however one tea from Teavana that will get me into the store without fail – White Chocolate Peppermint from the winter/holiday collection.
Teavana White Chocolate Peppermint
Because what is more holiday themed than chocolate and mint? Always a favourite of mine in general but Teavana manages to make their White Chocolate Peppermint Tea so creamy, the perfect amount of mint and it is just delicious. Serve it as a latte with some crushed candy cane sprinkles to make it even better! Priced at $9.98 for 2oz or a limited edition tin with 8oz for $45.
Take a sip down candy cane lane, where creamy white chocolate and rich cocoa mingle with red rooibos and cool peppermint notes. Delicious, decadent and destined to disappear after the holidays, this seasonal favorite is the perfect way to warm up your winter wonderland.
Teavana Gingerbread Black Tea
It is hard to find a decent gingerbread tea and Teavana’s Gingerbread Black Tea is always a bestseller for the holidays. Personally, I am not fussed by Gingerbread but people go crazy for this black tea. Priced at $9.98 for 2oz or a limited edition tin with 8oz for $45.
Cozy up fireside with a hot cup of this black tea blend featuring classic gingerbread, cinnamon spice and a sweet caramel-apple finish. It makes a sweet addition to any holiday gathering.
Teavana Joy Tea 2016
I reviewed Teavana Joy last year for Jodi from Up The Rollercoaster, comparing it to the much loved Tazo Joy. Check that out here. Available loose in 2oz packages for $9.98. Last year, Starbucks stores also had sachets of Joy available.
True happiness endures, but this blend only comes around once a year. The boldness of black tea, soothed by sweet oolong and softened by the floral notes of jasmine green tea, creates a lavishly layered cup
