I love tea and so does my mother. I decided to give her a holiday set from Teavana, a store that sells these expensive and exotic teas. They are supposed to be really organic. They don't even come in tea bags, so you have to distil the tea in a thing that's made for tea (whatever that is, we just used out coffee maker). Regardless, I was tired of buying my mother bath sets that she never used, and I always ended up taking them and using them for myself. I bought this set at a Teavana sotre inside a mall, and the sets were on sale the weekend before Christmas. I knew my mom would like it. The best thing about this set is that it comes with four, 2 ounce bags of tea. There are four flavors, Pumpkin Spice Brulee, Orange Chocolate Sweet Spice, White Chocolate Peppermint, and Cinnamon Apple Cider. Not only did those sound delightful, but I tasted each one before buying the set. The flavor seemed very potent, although they do not sweeten the teas in the store. I figured when you sweeten the teas at home, they would taste better. Each bag of tea claimes to make 15-20 cups. When I got home and made the tea myself, the flavor was very faint. I followed directions and I just did not get the same flavor. The tea is still very tasty. I just was expecting a strong flavor for the price. The holiday set was on a major sale, and cost me about $28. If you get 2 ounces of any tea on its own, it will cost you $22. It does not make any sense, but hey, I got four bags for the price of one. Anyway, Its way to expensive. I have tasted teas sold at Family Dollar that tasted better.
The Packaging is very pretty
