Genmaicha Green Tea international-genmaicha-green-tea-home

Genmaicha is a traditional Japanese green tea that is also known as “popcorn tea” due to the grains of rice that pop during the roasting process. The roasted rice lends to a rich and nutty aroma that blends perfectly with the fresh flavor of green tea.

Earl Grey Tea

international-earl-grey-tea-home

Earl Grey Tea is a timeless classic that first became popular in England. Black tea is flavored with oil of bergamot, adding a sweet and light citrus aroma. The pleasant and fresh finish after each sip makes Earl Grey a perfect afternoon tea.

English Breakfast Tea

international-english-breakfast-tea-home

English Breakfast Tea is one of the world’s most popular black tea blends recognized by its robust and full-bodied flavor originating from Assam, Ceylon, and Kenya. We added a twist to this classic by adding Taiwan Black Tea leaves to the traditional blend. Enjoy with a splash of milk for a creamier texture.

Honeybush Tea (Caffeine-Free)

international-honeybush-tea-home

Honeybush Tea is cultivated during the flowering period of the honeybush plant, which is only grown in small areas of South Africa. This naturally caffeine-free tea has a distinctive honey taste and is commonly enjoyed with milk and sugar or on ice!

Benefits of Chamomile Mint Tea

chamomile

There is always time for tea. Especially Chamomile Mint which is one of our customers’ favorites. The flavor is so inviting, with a hint of peppermint that is so relaxing and warming, it really is a hug in a mug. Chamomile tea is made from a daisy-like plant, bringing that extra sunshine to each cup. Besides its minty flavor, there are several other reasons why you should be enjoying a glass of chamomile tea regularly.

THE BENEFITS

Here are the many wonderful benefits you get from drinking this caffeine-free tea.

SLEEP AID

Where Chamomile gets most of its recognition is the fact that it is a natural sleep-aid. Enjoying a cup of chamomile tea about a half an hour before you decide to hit the hay, will really make a difference in the period of time it takes you to fall into a deep sleep. Start counting your sheep…ZzzZZzzzzZz.

DARK CIRCLES

Waking up to dark circles under your eyes is like waking up to find out you used your last Teasia K-Cup yesterday. Tragic. However, make sure you stock up because the key to relieving those dark under eyes is Chamomile! Chamomile helps act as an anti-inflammatory so it will help soothe and refresh those tired eyes. It takes just 5 minutes. Take our K-cup and pour the contents out into the center of a 4×4 cut of muslin (cheesecloth). Bring the corners of the cloth together and tie with bakers twine into little tea bags. Brew tea as normal, once the bags have completely cooled place them on your eyes. Sit back, relax and enjoy the 10 minute mini spa session!

MUSCLE SPASMS

Sometimes our day to day life can get a little exhausting; all that stress on your body can lead to the dreaded back spasms. Glycine directly affects muscle spasms. Chamomile has been proven to help the glycine levels in your body rise. When the levels rise it helps calm the uncomfortable spasms you may be feeling in your back from time to time. Drink up!

ACNE & SKIN IRRITATION

Chamomile is loaded with bacteria fighting antioxidants, the same bacteria that produces acne. Adding Chamomile to your beauty routine might be just the trick to clear up your skin. The best way to reap the benefits is to brew our K-cups normally, then pour the tea into a separate bowl and hold your face in the steam. Chamomile also helps with bug bites, sunburns and eczema. Take some of those fancy tea bags you’ve made using our K-cups, bring them to a boil, let them cool and then place them on the irritated areas. This will help relieve your skin while conditioning the irritated area. Ahhhhhh…we can feel the relief already.

Chamomile Tea

STOMACH CRAMPS

Our favorite reason to enjoy Chamomile tea is to help relieve stomach cramps. The only natural remedy we have found that works as quickly and effectively as medicine. Drink this tea twice a day, once in the morning and once at night. Also because our Chamomile Mint Tea has the perfect amount of peppermint in it, it can also help you when you’re feeling a little under the weather. Sore throat? Peppermint tea. Cough? Peppermint tea. Congested? Peppermint tea. Add some honey with this tea and it’ll soothe your cough in no time. The possibilities are endless!

Brew up a cup of Chamomile Mint today. We’ve made it even more convenient to enjoy by capturing the magic of Chamomile inside our ready to use K-cup!
