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!
How do you get out of this heat and cool down during the summer time? Try some blueberry iced tea using our delicious Teasia Black Tea in kcups. Here are the simple steps to making this happen:
What You Need

½ cup frozen blueberries
- Brew all kcups and set aside to cool. Note: You can use the second brew in our kcup as well and make even more tea!
- Add blueberries and a cup of iced tea into a blender and puree until smooth. Make sure to strain the liquid so your drink isn’t chunky.
- Add into a pitcher or serve in glasses.
- Add some ice and fresh blueberries for garnish.
There are so many easy ways to mix up teas and this recipe is super delicious with green tea as well!
