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 10 with Black Tea

TeasiaTeaTesting_BlackTea

Day 10: Black Tea

Flavor Highlights: I enjoy the nutty aftertaste with this black tea. This is a drink I would also have instead of a coffee because of the caffeine boost it gives me without getting shaky.

A whole wheat toast with strawberry jam is what I would pair this tea with.  I normally will not go for this tea because of its’ bitterness, but to my surprise, this tea is incredibly smooth. The aroma is therapeutic and also delicious.

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 3 with Oolong Tea

TeasiaTeaTesting_OolongTea

Day 3: Oolong Tea

Here’s my take on Teasia’s Oolong Tea.

Flavor Highlights: This tea has a woody flavor with a hint of fruity and nutty aftertaste. I like that I could drink this as is or with honey and lemon, but most of all how many different flavors I Get out of one sip.

I would recommend this tea with a salty afternoon snack like a some roasted peanuts or even a small bag of potato chips. I enjoyed the flavor as well as appreciated the smoothness of it.  I thought this was a perfect middle ground from too strong and too light. This is a definite favorite!

The next tea that I’m going to try is Jasmine Green Tea. I really love green tea so stay tuned for my take on Jasmine.

Don’t forget, if you’re not sure which teas to try, there are variety packs with 4 different flavors in each series!

 

 

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!
