Oolong Tea is smooth and warm with a hint of sweet fruits. The subtle complexity makes it perfect for an everyday tea. Many consider oolong tea to offer the most complete tea drinking experience as it brings the light, fresh flavors of green tea and the complex flavors of black tea into a perfect balance. Teasia Oolong Tea is smooth and warm with a hint of sweet fruits. The subtle complexity makes it perfect for an everyday tea.

Try adding a splash of milk and drizzle some honey for a sweeter tea served on ice, or drink the tea by itself and enjoy its natural delicious flavors.

Roasted Oolong Tea has a natural roasted, earthy flavor.  To all those coffee lovers out there, this brew is the right one for you. The long-lasting fragrance will captivate your senses. In comparison to un-roasted oolong tea, which is lighter and brews a light yellow/green color, roasted oolong produces a darker, richer brew.

Teasia Jasmine Bubble Milk Tea

 

Ingredients

1 Teasia Jasmine Green Tea k-cup, brewed
1 Cup ice cubes
1-2 tablespoons (less if you like less sweet) of your favorite sweetener. We like agave nectar  (if you’re vegan) or sugar syrup (combine 1 cup granulated sugar and 1 cup dark brown sugar with 2 cups of water in a medium saucepan and stir over high heat. Once the syrup begins to simmer, remove from heat and cool before refrigeration. This syrup will last a month in a tightly sealed container ).
1/2 cup milk (soy, coconut or almond milk)
1/4 cup Tapioca Pearls aka Bubbles (you can find tapioca pearls at a fine online retail store. Follow instructions on the packaging)

Preparation

Brew your Teasia k-cup as you would in your Keurig. Combine the  jasmine tea with  ice, milk and sweetener. You may either blend all ingredients in a blender or use a cocktail shaker. Place  tapioca pearls in a tall glass. Pour tea mixture over pearls, and serve with a fat straw. Enjoy!
