Paulina’s Teasia Tea-a-Day Tasting – Day 4 with Jasmine Green Tea

For Day 4, I decided to pop in the Jasmine Green Tea kcup.

Flavor Highlights: I would recommend adding your favorite milk to this drink to help tone own the floral taste as it is pretty strong. If you like your teas sweet, don’t forget to add some sugar too!

Although this was not my personal favorite, I believe this drink would be best enjoyed while reading a book because of its’ energizing properties. I picked up on the floral aroma almost immediately. I didn’t like how much it smelled and tasted like flowers and I enjoy more toned down flavors for my tea. Several of my coworkers pick Jasmine Green Tea to be one of their top teas that they drink, but I’m more of a Green Tea type of girl.

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:
