I am a bit obsessed with tea, and by a bit, I mean to the point that I collect teapots, obsessed. I love that you can moderate your tea’s caffeine content with blending and brewing methods, I love the smell, and I especially love loose-leaf tea and the gorgeous pieces of fruit and flowers you can find in different varieties. If you’ve been following ChickadeeSays for a while you might have spotted my love affair with Tiesta Tea, a brand whose signature is deliciously blended all-natural loose-leaf tea. From inclusion in my Weekend Warrior Detox, to showcasing my slightly odd cupboard of tea mugs on Instagram and Twitter, Tiesta Tea is a constant in my everyday life.
When the darlings at Tiesta offered to send over a flavor- Kiwi Cherry Bonanza- that I hadn’t yet tried I was, in a word, elated. I have savored every blend I’ve tried from Tiesta from the very first tin I picked up from the health foods store the town over, and Kiwi Cherry Bonanza didn’t disappoint.
The blend, chock full of bits of kiwi, cherry, apple, carrot, and ginger, is fruity and strong without being overwhelming, and perfectly sweet- no sugar needed. Also, it smells divine, hinting of spring’s freshness and summer’s bounty; little Miss Tinkerbelle was following me around as I sipped. Kiwi Cherry Bonanza is in Tiesta Tea’s line of Immunity Teas, which boasts blends of Rooibos and herbal teas that are caffeine-free and are great for your immune system. The bits of fruit in this tea are a great source of antioxidants and detoxifying vitamins, both of which help to ward off sickness. These toxin-fighting fruits blend fabulously with stomach-soothing ginger that gives the tea a slightly spicy essence, vaguely exotic, which creates a fuller flavor as well as being very helpful for an upset stomach.
If you are looking for a new tea blend to incorporate into your daily routine, or are new to loose-leaf tea and want to try multi-tea blends that combine many different types of tea, Tiesta Tea is a fabulous brand to know. Their website is informative and easy to navigate with large labels and fun descriptions. Also, they have a wide variety of tea with varying caffeine levels for every taste and every occasion. If you’re a first time Tiesta Tea buyer, I would recommend purchasing one of their tea tins. The tins are both functional and aesthetically interesting, with each canister sealing in a fun way with a metal clasp, and a see-what-you’re-getting window running down each tin, allowing you to see the tea’s often striking ingredients inside while keeping your tea fresh.
Tiesta Tea’s Kiwi Cherry Bonanza is now added to my list of favorite tea blends, and I know that it will be a staple this is upcoming spring. Make sure you stay up to date with Tiesta Tea and follow them on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest and make sure to say that I sent you!
