If you need caffeine free options, keep an eye out for our rooibos blends or herbal mint tisanes.

Find a substitute to your favorite Teavana Tea

With Teavana shuttering all of its stores, including it’s location at Crossgates Mall in Albany, many tea drinkers are looking for a local alternative Albany NY tea store. Fortunately, there is a nearby location that serves as an ideal Teavana alternative tea shop.

“I’ve done a lot of research on their teas,” Linda Smith, owner of Divinitea, remarked. “We’ve been able to find a good replacement for Teavana customer’s favorite teas, whether it’s something we already blend, or it’s something we make just for them. It’s a personalized service.

“We’ve had a lot of customers come over from Teavana; our Clifton Park location is just 15 minutes away from the closed Teavana shop at Crossgates Mall. They will come in with a tea or describe it to us, and we’ve been able to help them out.”

When asked how closely she was able to come to a substitute: “While Teavana had many varieties, we have over 300 blends in house. We’ve come up with similar or even better tea blends customers enjoy.

“However, we don’t copy Teavana teas. We can’t, nor would we want to.” Linda added. “First of all, Teavana teas are not certified organic, meaning their ingredients can be treated with pesticides or chemical fertilizers. We source only certified organic ingredients, to ensure they are safe and healthy.”

“Certain ingredients are very expensive to source organically. We don’t recommend including these ingredients in a Teavana substitute tea if they don’t affect flavor. A lot of the blends are overly complicated anyway, with something like 14 ingredients. Some of these ingredients are in there just for the names, to make the tea sound exotic. They are there in such small quantities that you can’t taste it and you aren’t really getting the health benefits.

“When we add an ingredient, it is there for a reason. It’s there for a flavor profile or a health benefit. There are no added sugars or sweeteners in our blends. I’ve actually eaten pieces of fruit out of Teavana tea. They’re sugared fruits,” Linda observed as she sifted through a Teavana blend, picking out fruit pieces.

“Another important note,” Linda continued, “we are a nut-free facility. None of our blends contain any nut products, so we’re safe for people with nut allergies. ”

When asked what customers should do if they want to replace their Teavana teas. Linda replied: “If you’re local, you can stop by our Clifton Park tea shop. It helps if you can bring the tea you want to replace, especially if you have a list of ingredients. But even if you don’t have that, we can make a recommendation.

“The best time to stop in is on Saturdays from 9:30-12. We have a free tea tasting. You can try any tea we have. It’s a great opportunity to discover something new.”

“If you’re not local, or can’t make the trip, you can always call or email us. We can help you find what you’re looking for. Our website, Divinitea.com, has a wide selection of our teas, and we offer free shipping, so you can have your tea delivered to your door at no extra charge.”

Organic Passion Fruit Tea

Beat The Winter Blues with Tea

It’s been a frigid winter so far in many parts of the country. Iguanas are falling from the trees in Florida, bomb cyclones are dropping snow on the east coast, and Mount Washington is making Mars looking like a balmy retreat.

Although winter takes on a different meaning for some. Our thoughts go out to  California in particular, where a record breaking fire season has resulted in destructive mudslides.

Whatever the weather, it’s a good time to take a break, take stock, and like a character out of a Hercule Poirot story, calm your nerves with a strong cuppa.

Beat The Blues

This weekend we’re running a website and in store promotion for 10% off the following teas. Plus earn rewards points when you shop online.

Use coupon code BEAT-THE-BLUES from now thru Monday (1/15) for the teas below:

  • Earl Grey’s Passion: An organic Earl Grey tea with a hint of passion fruit. Made with real organic orange and lemon peel. This tastes great hot or iced.
  • Persian Plum Rose: An exotic organic black tea blend with sultry notes of plum and rose petals, and a pleasant finish of cardamom spice.
  • Cranberry Raspberry: Addictive tart fruity notes of cranberry and raspberry with piquant flavors of hibiscus. Tasty hot or iced. Naturally caffeine free organic blend, full of antioxidants.
  • Organic Passion Fruit Tea: Rich, ripe flavors of passion fruit with an organic black tea base. Excellent hot or iced.
  • Ceylon Green: From the lush tropical tea estates of Sri Lanka, this organic Ceylon green tea has gentle floral notes and a brisk grassiness.
