The smell of this tea is so sweet and original that it was instantly a favorite. The tea is a beautiful blend of green tea leaves and whole blackberries and raspberries. You can smell the slight kick of the spearmint, but it is not overpowering.
I steeped this tea at 180 degrees for 2 minutes in my Teamaker. I added 1 tsp of German Rock Sugar for each 8 oz of water, but I would recommend trying it before you sweeten because it is very sweet on its own.
Teavana describes this tea as:
A passionate salsa dance where rhythm is the unspoken language, this refreshing green tea perfectly captures the Latin-inspired minty mojito cocktail. Combining succulent blackberries and raspberries with a spearmint kick, this Latin wonder is also excellent iced. SUPERFRUIT ENHANCED. Blackberry highlights with raspberry notes and a light spearmint kick. Ingredients: Apple pieces, green tea, hibiscus flowers, rosehip peels, blackberries, blackberry flavoring, raspberries, plum pieces (plum, rice flour), cactus blossoms, spearmint
The color of the tea is a rich purple. This tea will satisfy a sweet tooth, it is so smooth. The flavor is more of an herbal since the green is so mild. It has a nice fruity flavor with the mint aftertaste. I have had this tea both hot and cold and it is delicious both ways.
Definitely a tea I will always have stocked. Try it and you will LOVE it!
