I have definitely considered doing a metheglin with something from Teavana...I don't routinely add tannins to my mead except in certain circumstances, but it can be a valuable addition at times. I would think that many of the Teavana teas would have less tannins than your run-of-the-mill black tea (many of the Teavana teas I've tried use white or green tea as the base...)
