This blend of tea is a unique mix of jasmine, lavender and peach (Jasmine Dragon Phoenix Pearls Green Tea, Lavender Dreams White Tea and Peach Tranquility herbal). I like each of these teas individually, but together they are such a pleasure!
I don’t find that one tea overpowers any of the others, they are all an equal player. The blend itself is a little expensive since you must buy a minimum of 6 oz (2 oz of each tea). I have all 3 on hand at all times so when I’m ready for a cup of this blend, I just mix them myself.
I steeped the tea using 1 tsp per 8 oz of water. I steeped the tea for 2.5 minutes at 175°F. I added 1 tsp of German Rock Sugar for each 8 oz of water. I filled my tumbler and had the first half hot and put the rest in the fridge which I am now drinking iced. It tastes great both ways.
Teavana describes this tea as:
This peaceful combination contains soothing herbs and three relaxing teas. It is a blend of Lavender Dreams white tea, Jasmine Dragon Phoenix Pearls green tea and Peach Tranquility herbal tea. The combination of chamomile, jasmine and fruity deliciousness will permeate your mind and body to help you relax. A perfect tea for the end of a long day. Includes 6oz of tea.
The color of the tea is a soft yellow. It looks like the flavor may be on the weak side, but that is a wrong! It is very flavorful. The initial flavor is a soft white, with a jasmine/lavender finish. The peach is very subtle within the flavor. The dry tea is so pretty. The pearls are delicate and there are large pieces of flowers and candied violets. I generally do not re-steep my teas, but I find the 2nd steep is just as good since the brewing time is so short that the pearls do not completely unfurl the first time.
This tea is NOT caffeine free, so regardless of the name “Relaxation Blend”, if you are sensitive to the effects of caffeine, I do not recommend this tea at bedtime.
