THE STARBUCKS TEAVANA REV UP WELLNESS TEA is one of Starbucks’ newly-available Wellness teas. and it’s my favorite, by far.
Let’s start with Starbucks’ description of the Teavana Rev Up Wellness Brewed Tea:
“A lively bled of black, oolong and green teas are brightened with tropical notes of mango, apricot and peach, creating a blend that helps support and maintain a healthy metabolism.”
- Here’s Teavana’s description:
- “Boost your metabolism with the enlivening action of this tropical blend. Black, oolong and green teas combine with juicy mango and passion fruit bits to create an invigorating blend that helps support and maintain healthy metabolism. Made with natural ingredients.”
- “Tasting Notes: Mango, with flavors of peach & apricot balanced with a blend of muscatel Darjeeling black tea, floral jasmine green & high quality Chinese oolong.“
This should pair very well hot with lemon, or iced with lemonade, so if you’re drinking it at home, try it.
There are a lot of ingredients in this tea, but the dominant flavors and scents are black tea and a blend of the fruits (mango apricot, peach, passion fruit) that ends up tasting and smelling, to me, just like pomegranate.
Because they blend so well together, I can’t distinguish between the different fruit flavors in this tea. That’s perfectly okay with me, and speaks to a job well done on the recipe formulation.
This tea has no bitterness to it at all, which must be due to Starbucks’ decision to blend the black tea with green. It’s nice, and easy to drink.
This is a solid tea, definitely my favorite of Starbucks’ new Wellness line of teas. I really like it hot with no additions. and I’d love it as an iced-tea lemonade.
