For those counting down the days of winter in anticipation of warmer weather, Teavana offers an unexpected, balanced green tea with hints of spring.

Back for its third season, Teavana Winterberry Green Tea is full of fruity flavors, including strawberries, apples and sliced citrus. It’s sprinkled throughout with floral notes of marigold petal, rose hip and hibiscus that soften and sweeten the tea. It is available for a limited time at more than 350 Teavana specialty retail stores in the U.S. and Canada and online at

“Teavana Winterberry Green Tea is radiant, approachable and reminds us that spring is right around the corner,” says Jason Adams, Teavana brand manager.

Winterberry Green Tea is a blend of two core Teavana teas—Strawberry Grapefruit Xue Long Green Tea and Strawberry Lemonade Herbal Tea. Xue Long (pronounced Sh-way Long) is one of the highest-quality Chinese Green teas also known as Snow Dragon. It is crafted by hand and only harvested four days each year in Fuding, China. Teavana blends Xue Long with the bright flavors of pink grapefruit, sweet strawberries, apples and lemongrass for a tea with a bold taste. Strawberry Lemonade Herbal Tea is a refreshing lemon infusion with sweet strawberry undertones.

“Teavana has been expertly blending the world’s finest teas and botanicals since 1997 and this tea is a great example of our craft,” Adams says. “Teavana Winterberry pairs two unique blends, the classic green tea and adds a twist of sweetness with the herbal lemonade tea, which takes the flavor to a whole new level.”
