Paulina’s Teasia Tea-a-Day Tasting – Day 2 with Green Tea

Green

Day 2: Green Tea

I try to have at least one cup of green tea every day and I prefer this while working or enjoying a good book. What I enjoy most is the earthy blend of this Teasia tea. This blend is more flavorful than those I find in the grocery store. I like to use the K-cup twice before throwing it out, that’s how great of quality these are.

Flavor Highlights: Green tea is already a great go-to tea because of its’ health benefits and antioxidants, not to mention I definitely felt that caffeine boost after having a cup. This tea is enjoyable with honey and lemon.

The next tea that I’m trying is going to be Oolong Tea! I’m pretty excited about it so stay tuned.

Paulina’s Teasia Tea-a-Day Tasting – Day 1

RoseBlackHey guys I’m Paulina!  I’m a recent college graduate trying to find my way in the workforce while balancing my social/ family life along the way. I’m a very busy person so any chance I’m able to take some ‘me time’ I do. I like going on long jogs, hiking, reading, Netflix (binge-watching), crafting and above all staying physically and mentally healthy.

I’ve recently started being more attentive to the things a put in my body as well as to the things I’m not. Teas are a great and delicious way to give my body a boost without adding harsh chemicals nor unnecessary sugars I don’t need. Not to mention they all have health benefits as well as most have antioxidants. What I love most about Teasia Teas specifically are the wide range of flavors offered, sure to meet and exceed anyone’s taste buds!

Day 1: Rose Black Tea

Flavor Highlights: I like this tea with a splash of milk to balance with the bitterness of it. This tea is a fun option for when you’re wanting to get creative in the kitchen.  It is a great drink to serve cold, blended, and even used for a cocktail.

This tea also pairs great with a spicy snack. This is a definite romantic drink with different personalities depending on how it is worked into a drink, which is something we can’t say about many teas.

Let me know in the comments below on your favorite way of drinking rose black tea. If you haven’t tried it yet, I definitely recommend it. Since it’s the summer, add a few ice cubes in it and enjoy.

Stay tuned for the next tea I’m trying!

How to Grind Coffee with a Blender

Teasia coffee beans

Using a blender to grind your coffee can be a good alternative if you don’t have access to a coffee grinder. Although some blenders have the “grinder” option you still need to proceed with caution. If you don’t grind the beans enough, you won’t get the most benefit of the bean. But if you grind too much you risk burning the beans’ natural oils with the heating blades, making the coffee taste bitter.

Another important tip to remember is to only grind what you will be using. Coffee will lose its freshness and flavor 30 minutes after being ground because of the exposure to oxygen.  This being said, you will need to blend in small spurts. Our Brazil Fazenda roast is smooth, has light acidity, mild and buttery with hints of hazelnut and cocoa that balance the light and sweet berry tones.

Instructions

  1. Set your blender on high or “grinder” speed.
  2. Scoop in ¾ of a cup of coffee beans at a time (remember to only blend what you need).
  3. Blend until you have the consistency desired.

Pro Tip:

Depending on you preferred brewing method is wat will dictate the kind of grind you will need:

GRIND METHOD
Coarse French Press
Medium Coarse Chemex
Medium Machine Drip
Medium Fine  Siphon
Fine Aeropress Espresso
Turkish Turkish Coffee
