Tea Box – Product Review

How Tea box works: Teas are plucked, processed and packaged within one week using Tea box’s proprietary cold chain process, ensuring the freshest tea on the market. Through innovations in supply chain sourcing, cold chain processing and packaging, Tea box has disrupted the 200 year old tea industry. Also their packing keeps the tea fresh and states that “The world’s freshest Tea” #onlyfreshtea.

Kaushal Dugar, founder and CEO of Tea box says that, “Coming from a tea family and spending much of my childhood amongst tea estates, I grew up drinking some of the world’s best teas – so I know how fresh tea is meant to taste

Difference from others – Traditional tea bags is filled with the dust of broken tea leaves, while packaging constrains the leaves, preventing them from reaching their full flavor and aroma potential. Tea box feature a modern, pyramid-shaped tea bag that allows adequate headspace for the loose leaves to unfurl, resulting in a cup of tea steeped with full-bodied flavor.

Brewing of Tea, it just takes 3 to 5 mins –

Coming to my tea experience, I would say I love them to the core. As a tea person, I like to have tea without milk, when I feel little disturbed or lazy or even in the mood to do nothing – I love to have a cup of tea may be a green tea or black tea (but I prefer black tea a lot with a tsp of honey).

My Experience with Tea Box: I had to experience 4 varieties of Tea – 3 flavors from Green Tea (Fresh Morning Dew, Fresh Kashmiri Kahwa and Fresh Mint Jubilee) and a Flavor (Fresh Chamomile Ray) from Black Tea.

Having experienced the 4 varieties of Teas from TEA BOX, I would say it just took 3 to 5 mins to brew a wonderful, aromatic and flavorful tea. I could feel the wonderful aroma once I open the pac, later while brewing; it was a beautiful moment for me. Early morning with a cup of tea – no words for that feeling, want to feel it why wait – CLICK HERE and order your favorite tea and pamper yourself in the early morning.

As a tea person, I love to consume tea in different forms – may be a hot beverage, cold beverage or infuse them with meat, chicken … or infuse in baking. Stay tuned more tea recipes coming soon, still that enjoy – Cinnamon Tea, Lemon Iced Tea, Plum Cardamom Iced Tea, Green Tea Smoked Chicken.

 

 

 

Cinnamon Tea

Standard

I like to have tea without milk, recently have tried out cinnamon tea and found good difference in our health. A very, simple and easy to prepare but with loads of health benefits. As most of us knew that cinnamon is good for Diabetics and honey with warm water cuts bad cholesterol and helps in relieving acidity. I got to infuse both these ingredients together as tea which should be taken early morning in empty stomach and 30 mins after dinner before going to bed.

But here I had wide range of teas like bubble tea, oolong tea, better wife and the one I liked to the core is the Red Zen tea. So now I am happy that I need not pack tea from Ooty, just a few kms drive in Koramangala, Bangalore I would numerous flavor of tea and tea infused food.
