Tea is full of antioxidants and is virtually calorie free making it a smart drink of choice. Many times in the evening if I can't satisfy my hunger through snacks, I will make myself a cup of decaf tea. I also drink a cup of decaf tea in the morning and a cup of caffeinated tea in the late morning or early afternoon.
I was recently sent a large variety of teas to try from The Republic of Tea. I have enjoyed trying these new flavors. Here is my opinion on some of the teas that I have tried:
-Hibiscus Tea- This tea is caffeine free and brews up a nice dark, cranberry color. It is semi-sweet and has a fruity flavor. The first time that I made this tea, I did not brew it quite long enough so the flavor was weak. The next time that I brewed it, I left it in the hot water a minute longer and it brought out more flavor. This is a tasty tea to drink hot but I think that it would also be great iced.
-Orange Blossom White Tea- This tea has a simple white tea flavor. I could not taste any orange flavor in it though. White tea typically contains around 20 to 30 milligrams of caffeine per serving which is quite low.
This is my first time trying any tea from The Republic of Tea and I really enjoyed it. Something to note is that most of the containers of tea come with 36 to 50 bags of tea which is much more than the typical 16 to 20 bags that most teas come with. Even though it is higher priced than tea in the grocery store, it ends up being about the same price after you figure how many more bags of tea that you are getting per container.
If you are at all a fan of tea, you must check out the fabulous sounding flavors that they have to offer. Just listen to the names of these teas: Banana cuppa chocolate tea, Cranberry blood orange, Decaf Kiwi pear green tea, Sip for the cure pink lemonade green tea and Almond coconut macaroon red tea. They are definitely on my must-try-next list!
