Product Week - Teasia Tea Review and Giveaway!

Disclaimer:  I received a box of Teasia Tea K-cups for this review.

I am an iced tea drinker, but I'm also a lazy iced tea drinker, which means that more often than not, I can't be bothered to make up a pitcher of cold-brew iced tea.  I know, I know - that's pretty darn lazy.  So most of the time I just drink water.  But when I was offered a box of Teasia Tea in K-cup form, I was intrigued - I could make a glass of iced tea using my Keurig?  I don't know why it never occurred to me that I could make anything other than coffee in it, but to paraphrase Forrest Gump, "I'm not a smart (wo)man."

I was sent the Floral Series box to try out - this is what arrived on my doorstep:
 
Inside was a jumble of K-cups - I sorted through them and found the four different flavors:
Rose Black, Jasmine Green, Chamomile Mint, and Rooibos Lemongrass.

There was also an info card, and here's where I read something interesting:
Each K-cup provides two brews!  So while the cost of this tea is about 53 cents per K-cup, it's actually about 26 cents, thanks to being able to brew a second cup.  I was a little skeptical, so naturally I set about brewing my first cup of iced tea, which couldn't have been easier - I just filled a tumbler to the top with ice, popped in a Teasia Tea K-cup, and set my Keurig to brew a 6 ounce cup:
Ready, set...
 Brew!
And there you go - a freshly-brewed glass of iced tea!

I liked the flavor - there was a subtle hint of rose that I could smell as I drank the tea, but it wasn't overpowering at all.  I don't use sweetener in my drinks, and I usually just get plain tea, but this was a nice change and made me feel like I was having a beverage as opposed to just getting something to drink.

After I finished the first glass, I refilled it with ice and used the same K-cup to make a second serving, and it was just as strong as the first!  Now that was a pleasant surprise and made my K-cup-loving, frugal self quite happy.

I tried all four of the flavors and while I liked three of them, one stood out as my favorite - the Chamomile Mint!  I thought for sure the Rooibos Lemongrass would have been my top choice, and that is second, but the Chamomile Mint is super refreshing, especially in our hot weather.  I was not a fan of the Jasmine Green Tea at all - not sure if it's because of the green tea, or the jasmine, or maybe both - but that one was a big no for me.  I actually haven't tried any of the tea as a hot drink yet, because after I have my morning coffee, I'm all about the cold stuff right now - but I'm sure it's equally delicious as a warm beverage...and maybe I'll be ready for a cup of hot tea around November, ha!

Teasia Tea is available at their website and also on Amazon.  I get no compensation for wherever you shop, but I do want to point out that it's nearly $5 cheaper on Amazon.

  1. I love my iced tea--I brew my own every day! Thanks for the reminder--heading up to the kitchen to prepare it as we speak.

  2. Iced tea is what I drink after getting sick of the gallons of water I also drink every day. I followed Teasia on Twitter and I would like to try the Formosa variety box as like you, I'm just not a fan of green tea.

    We have Keurigs at my office so I think it would be fun to have that tea there to make iced tea at work!

  3. What a fun giveaway! I drink a lot of hot tea at work, and since the Keurig is RIGHT BY MY DESK this would perfect for me. :) I followed on Instagram and would love to try the floral variety - all of those flavors intrigue me! (sassypearblog@gmail)

  4. Glad you found an easy solution to the iced tea laziness problem, one I have as well. But I drink my tea super strong and super sweet (with stevia) so I'm more a multiple tea bag person myself. I'll put 6 teabags in one large mug, no lie. But then I'm weird. I don't much like tea, but both black and green are good for me, so I get my tea-medicine in one big cup. Coffee on the other hand, not a chore to drink at all.

    Good luck to the giveaway entrants!

  5. I'm also a part of the iced tea laziness. The only tea I make at home is Chia tea. Even then, I'm only adding water, so I guess still lazy...lol

  11. I followed on instagram. I'm lazy and make my iced tea with cold brew bags & keep adding water until it almost looks like water before I make another pitcher! If I win I'd like to try the floral variety, although any of the offers sound good! Stay cool today! It's going to be 89 in WV- I can only imagine what your high temp will be today in TX!
