Paulina’s Teasia Tea-a-Day Tasting – Day 11 with Rooibos Lemongrass Tea

TeasiaTeaTesting_RooibosLemongrass

Day 11: Rooibos Lemongrass Tea

Flavor Highlights:  I enjoyed the subtle sweetness of this tea.  Although hesitant at first because I’ve never heard of Rooibos before, this drink exceeded my expectations.

I would enjoy this drink after a long day coming home to relax and enjoy a favorite TV show or book. The plus side of this drink is there’s no caffeine in it so I won’t have to worry about having trouble falling asleep.

What I liked most was the smoothness and sweetness of it. If you’re looking to add anything to this tea, I like it just the way it is.

Paulina’s Teasia Tea-a-Day Tasting – Day 9 with English Breakfast Tea

TeasiaTeaTesting_EnglishBreakfast

Day 9: English Breakfast Tea

Flavor Highlights: I really enjoyed the leafy aroma. This tea would go great with a splash of milk and a bit of sugar for that creamy taste. This flavor is not subtle. Although dark and bitter, I surprisingly still enjoyed it. The subtle citrus after taste pairs great with its bitterness intensity.

There’s a reason why this tea is named English Breakfast! It is a great substitution drink for coffee because of the energy you get from this tea.

Don’t forget to enjoy this tea with a scone or even a muffin to start off the day right. With a tea and pastry in hand, I’m ready to jump start my morning full of energy.

 

 

 

Paulina’s Teasia Tea-a-Day Tasting – Day 8 with Genmaicha Tea

TeasiaTeaTesting_Genmaicha

Day 8: Genmaicha Green Tea

Genmaicha is a traditional Japanese green tea popularly known as “popcorn tea” from the grains of rice that pop during the roasting process. I’ve also seen Genmaicha used in some savory Japanese dishes so that may be another way to use this tea during a meal.

Flavor Highlights: Because of the bitterness, I would have this drink with lemon and accentuate the flavor.

This would be a definite go to when looking for an extra boost of energy. This was not a personal favorite because of the bitterness. But I do love sweet and sour which is why lemon and honey would go deliciously.

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.
