Introducing Teasia’s newest tea flavor: Chai Tea!

Spring has sprung and it is finally weather we can count on again. It’s getting warmer and it’s the perfect time to enjoy some fresh air outside. It’s not too hot but it’s not too chilly.  Teasia is choosing to celebrate with our latest addition to our International series, Teasia Chai Tea. Teasia Chai blends a strong black tea with aromatic Indian spices and herbs. It truly embodies the beautiful sunsets of India with unique and bright flavors.

Our new Teasia Chai got us inspired to push the limits and experiment with the beautiful flavors to see if we can create Chai infused dishes that will breathe fresh air into an old classic. In order to celebrate properly we’re baking up tried and true sugar cookies and topping them with a Teasia Chai tea icing to kick these cookies up a few notches.

This recipe is super simple but will blow your tastes buds away, let’s gets started.

Paulina’s Teasia Tea-a-Day Tasting – Day 12 with Honeybush Tea

Honeybush_Genmaicha Green Tea

Day 12: Honeybush Tea

Flavor Highlights: I immediately got a sweet aroma resembling dark berries. I appreciate that could drink it on its own without anything added to it, as well as mixed to be created into a fun summer drink.

This is a fun sweet treat to also serve cold or blended with fruit to make a smoothie. I would definitely enjoy this tea on a hot day to share with friends.

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 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!

Aromatherapy: Crockpot Version

Aromatherapy

Crockpots just aren’t for the Fall & Winter time. It’s time to take it out and make some beauty recipes. While we wait for Fall to roll around, let’s enjoy it by using ingredients that remind us of the season: Cinnamon, pine cones, pumpkin guts and apple pie. Sometimes it’s hard to capture the aroma of Fall in your own home. It can especially be hard to find an affordable way to fill your home with the fragrance of Fall every day of the season. Luckily, we can create this season with our crockpot! This DIY at home fragrance maker can be a money saver! With just a few ingredients you can capture the aroma of Fall in your kitchen!

WHAT  YOU’LL NEED:

1  Teasia Rose Black Tea K-Cup
Handful of cinnamon sticks
Orange rind
2 TBSP of whole cloves
5 Bay Leaves

DIRECTIONS:

This is one of the absolute easiest DIY’s you will come across this Fall.

  1. Fill your crockpot with water
  2. Brew your Teasia Rose Black Tea K-Cup as directed
  3. Add all ingredients
  4. Simmer all day long!

The best part of this DIY is you can make it your own, for example if you like more of a fresh baked treat smell, leave out the orange rind and add a TBSP of vanilla extract.

Please leave a comment and share your DIY crockpot aroma recipe with us!
