Jose’s Teasia Coffee-A-Day Tasting- Day 3 with Colombia Huila (Regular Brew)

blog coffee colombia

Day 3 of coffee is going to be exciting because it’s the Colombia Huila. A lot of my coworkers thoroughly enjoy this coffee brew because of the prominent coffee taste and everyone flocks to the coffee maker once a new pot brews.

Here’s some background about our Colombia Huila single origin coffee beans. In the growing region of the department of Huila, Colombia, most coffee comes from small family owned farms. These farmers will pick and process their own coffee before delivering to larger factories for sorting and packaging.

My Thoughts: You can smell the mixture of apple and caramel with a light hint of honey from the coffee. The caramel really hits the spot with its strong aroma and flavor. This is a smooth coffee that’s great for every morning (if you can get a cup before your coworkers drink it all). This Coffee would go great with something sweet like a cream filled donut or a nice chocolate bar with nuts.

PRO TIP- Add a hint of milk or soy milk to get a wonderful creamy taste with each sip.

  • STORAGE AND BREWING: To preserve the fresh roasted flavor of your Colombian coffee beans, store in an air-tight container (or very tightly seal the bag), and keep in a dark and cool location. For best results, we recommend grinding your Teasia coffee no more than 15 minutes prior to brewing!

  2. Add contents into saucepan and stir in condensed milk.
  3. Simmer for 3 minutes and remove from heat.
  4. Serve and Enjoy!

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.

 

 

Paulina’s Teasia Tea-a-Day Tasting – Day 7 with Chamomile Mint Tea

TeasiaTeaTesting_ChamomileMint

Day 7: Chamomile Mint Tea

Flavor Highlights: My ultimate FAVORITE of all! The aroma was truly relaxing and it gave me such happy vibes. I rarely have tea that I enjoy smelling, just as I do drinking.

This drink, in my opinion, would pair deliciously with chocolate and berries. This is a fun drink to mix into a smoothie or even cocktail! The delicious aroma of mint was just as enjoyable as the taste. I really enjoyed this fun flavor.

PRO TIP: Since flu season is starting to kick up, Chamomile Mint Tea is best with some honey and it’ll help soothe you and help you sleep. Share this non-caffeinated with others who may feeling a tad under the weather.

Paulina’s Teasia Tea-a-Day Tasting – Day 6 with Earl Grey Tea

Teasia Earl Grey Tea

Day 6: Earl Grey Tea

Flavor Highlights: I like that this classic favorite is not just tasty but also is a great option for stomach pains or if you’d like to help improve your metabolism!  I have a weak stomach so anything to keep me from constantly having to take medicine is a win for me.

I would recommend pairing this drink with a favorite sweet dark chocolate treat of yours and even some pecans for that crunchy texture.

I enjoyed the roasted taste and smell.  Earl Grey is a definite go-to when craving a smooth drink that’s also healthy. Whenever I drink this tea, I imagine having a fancy tea party at my desk at work. This is definitely a mood booster as well.

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

TeasiaTeaTesting_Jasmine

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.
