Paulina’s Teasia Tea-a-Day Tasting – Day 7 with Chamomile Mint Tea

TeasiaTeaTesting_ChamomileMint

Day 7: Chamomile Mint Tea

Flavor Highlights: My ultimate FAVORITE of all! The aroma was truly relaxing and it gave me such happy vibes. I rarely have tea that I enjoy smelling, just as I do drinking.

This drink, in my opinion, would pair deliciously with chocolate and berries. This is a fun drink to mix into a smoothie or even cocktail! The delicious aroma of mint was just as enjoyable as the taste. I really enjoyed this fun flavor.

PRO TIP: Since flu season is starting to kick up, Chamomile Mint Tea is best with some honey and it’ll help soothe you and help you sleep. Share this non-caffeinated with others who may feeling a tad under the weather.

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!
