Imagine returning home after a tiring day at work, beating the heat and traffic. Or returning from a day out grocery shopping or making the most of the seasonal sales. Sipping a glass of cold water back in the comfort of your home can completely refresh you. But what if you have something to make the water more interesting and more refreshing?
While having friends over at home, we all like to serve something different. What if you have a refreshing as well as a healthy option available?
I recently came across the newly launched iced brews from TE-A-ME teas, – a blend of fruits and herbs, which along with being different and refreshing, makes a refreshing healthy drink. And that too in minutes. Here is some more information about these newly launched iced brews
I got a pack with a mix of all flavors, which came in a standard cardboard box. Each of the flavors is packed in a different colored sealed packet which makes it easy to store them all together and choose the flavors according to your requirement. Within the packet, there are these delicate triangular shaped tea bags with the brews. These looked really amazing as well as the material of the bags made the brews easy to diffuse in the water.
Flavors and Ingredients
The TE-A-ME iced brews come in 5 different flavors
– Lychee, Mint green, Wild Berry, Peach and Lemon. If you are not sure if the flavors you will like, they also have a sample pack which has all the flavors like the one I got.
The moment I opened the inner sealed packet, I was overwhelmed by the beautiful aromas of the various teas wafting in the air. Each of the flavors had a different aroma that tingled the senses and made us want to sip it immediately.
The ingredients used are mentioned clearly on the package. They are all 100% natural ingredients, NON-GMO, gluten free with no added sugars or artificial colors making it a super healthy drink too.
These teas are very easy to prepare and require no boiling. Just take a glass of cold water and add the tea bags to it and let it brew for 5 minutes. You can dilute it with more water f you prefer a light brew and let it brew for longer for a more concentrated flavor.
I found it perfect when I used one tea bag with one big glass of water and let it brew for 5-6 minutes. I also used these brews mixed and matched with other ingredients to make my own mocktails.
What I liked best about these teas was the description mentioned on each of the flavored packets. They are so in line with how the teas tasted.
Lemon Iced Brew
“Lose yourself in zesty, lemony deliciousness dipped in ice. A world of freshness awaits with every sip you take. “
This brew, like the name suggests, is tangy and lemony. You can add a bit of honey to it to make it a little sweeter like I did.
Peach Iced Brew
“This drink is the smooth satisfaction of fresh peaches blended with the bold flavor of black iced tea.”
When at a restaurant, peach iced teas are my favorite so I was looking forward to tasting this one the most. This one is smooth and yummy just like I enjoy. Very peachy, mixed with undertones of tea, this one as expected was my favorite of them all.
Lychee Iced Brew
“A spoonful of winter helps the summer melt away. The iced rush of fresh lychees is all you need for an afternoon by the pool.”
The strong flavor of lychee brewed in the ice-cold water is very refreshing, especially after a hot tiring day out. This is something that would be perfect to serve your friends too as it is something unique and would earn you some brownie points.
Mint Green Brew
“This iced blend gives you the sharp zest of icy mint any time of the day. The best part? It’s balanced with calming green tea.”
If you like the flavor of mint, this is definitely a must-have in your kitchen. I tried this with warm water too and liked it a lot. It is a good drink to have after your run or exercise routine too.
Wild Berry Brew
“Taste the smooth romance of summer strawberries and ripe raspberries blended with crushed ice. Made for sunny days.”
This one I felt was the most aromatic and brewed to a beautiful color too. Smelling of berries, this one too is perfect for a night with friends. You can add some mint leaves or lemon to give it a twist.
All these yummy brews are currently available on their website at a 10% discount. Do give them a try and am sure they shall become a constant in your kitchen.
