You know how some people can’t function without coffee? Well, I can’t function without tea. Seriously, I LOVE tea! Nothing is more relaxing (besides a bottle of wine) than a hot cup of tea that smells amazing. The only downfall to tea is having to wait for it to steep. I’m such an inpatient person that I get a bit anxious and don’t allow it time to fully steep. Plus, there are times that I completely forget that my tea is steeping and by the time I remember, I don’t even want it anymore.
It’s a good thing that the people over at Pique (pronounced Peek) Tea have come up with an ingenious way for us to enjoy a cup of hot tea right away…TEA CRYSTALS! These tea crystals allow us to enjoy a unique cup of tea immediately.
To tell you the truth, when Pique Tea reached out to me I was a bit unsure. I was so stuck on the way I’ve been drinking tea all these years that my mind just couldn’t wrap around this new process. So I checked out their website, read about the whole process and figured there’s no harm in trying it, right?
Like me, I know some of you may be thinking what exactly tea crystals are. When I think of tea crystals, I see something that resembles grains of sugar. However, to me they resemble more of a powder. Pique Tea slow brews 100% natural and organic whole tea leaves for maximum flavor and nutrients. They are then crystallized, so that we can instantly enjoy a cup of tea.
I’m so glad I decided to try this tea! This tea is seriously DELICIOUS and might I add better than some other teas I’ve tried before. I find it has a richer, smoother taste and is very aromatic (especially the Jasmine). I gave a few to my friend to try out and she was hooked. Hooked by the taste and hooked by the fact that she could enjoy a cup of tea right away.
As of right now, there are as total of 5 flavors;
Sencha Organic Green Tea – the quintessential Japanese green tea. Fresh and clear with hints of spring. Mild and aromatic.
Mint Sencha Organic Green Tea – the perfect pairing of Japanese green tea with fresh spearmint. Vibrant and refreshing.
Jasmine Organic Green Tea – Spring harvested green tea infused with fresh summer Jasmine blooms. A perfect harmony of delicate flavors. Smooth and fragrant.
Earl Grey Organic Black Tea – Superior Ceylon black tea with notes of candied citrus, dried cherry and a hint of flower. Rich and intriguing.
English Breakfast Organic Black Tea – Superior Assam and Ceylon black tea with notes of molasses and malt. Earthy and smooth.
With the scorching hot summer days we’ve been having, there are times where I don’t even want to think about eating or drinking anything hot. Luckily, not only do these tea crystals dissolve in hot water but they also dissolve in cold water. This makes enjoying a cup of ice cold tea by the pool while reading a book so much easier.
I’m definitely all about these tea crystals! My favorites are the Jasmine Organic Green Tea and the Earl Grey Organic Black Tea. I really hope that they will be coming out with some new flavors. I particularly have my fingers crossed for Chai Tea and some fruity flavored teas.
If you’re a tea lover like me then you’ll definitely want to give this a try! When you do, be sure to use the coupon code BELLEZAKISSES to get some $$ off!
Now, it wouldn’t be me if I didn’t somehow incorporate this into a beauty related post, right? Check back soon on how the floral aroma of the Jasmine Organic Green Tea, inspired me to create a DIY face scrub.
Thank you Pique Tea for sending me this product to review.
