Starbucks’ tea retail brand Teavana has launched two new spring-inspired teas, flavoured with jasmine and dragon fruit.
“Steeped with a medley of tropical fruit and flowers,” the caffeine-free Dragonfruit Devotion has been reintroduced for its third spring. It features fragrances of rose and orange flower blossoms. The new Scarlet Jasmine tea blend combines Teavana’s Dragonfruit Devotion herbal tea and Jasmine Dragon Phoenix Pearls green tea for “a smooth green tea layered with vibrant tropical fruit and hibiscus”.
Teavana tea-ologist Jason Adams said: “Teas with a floral aspect are great for spring. It’s a time when everything is in bloom, and the teas are delicious both hot and iced.
“The Jasmine Pearls are a hand-picked spring harvest tea – rolled by hand into tightly shaped pearls. In summer, the tea is layered with fresh jasmine blossoms, and it absorbs the flowers’ oils to create a fragrant tea.
“This is a well-balanced tea with flavours of guava, strawberry, lychee, dragon fruit, rose, and hibiscus. 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.”
