Day 5: Roasted Oolong Tea
Flavor Highlights: This drink was not my ‘cup of tea’. The darker, richer earthy taste of tea was a bit too much for me. This tea is almost along the lines of coffee but with that subtle tea flavor. I feel I enjoyed the Teasia Oolong Tea as it is so adding a roasting to it did not enhance it for me.
Nonetheless, this is a tea I would prefer drinking on a hot day served cold with ice and milk and sugar paired with something sweet like a scone or cupcakes!
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.
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!
Hey 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!
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.
- Set your blender on high or “grinder” speed.
- Scoop in ¾ of a cup of coffee beans at a time (remember to only blend what you need).
- Blend until you have the consistency desired.
Depending on you preferred brewing method is wat will dictate the kind of grind you will need:
