Review: Tiesta Tea Sencha on the Beach

I feel like there’s been a theme to the teas I have been drawn to lately. I’ve been trying to eat healthier and cut sugar and sweets, so I’ve been trying to fill that void with fruity teas. And a lot of the teas I’ve been trying have been summery. Today follows suit: I’m reviewing is Tiesta Tea’s Sencha on the Beach.I added this one to my cart last minute when I was ordering their PB&J tea, which I will be reviewing in the near future.

As you may know from previous posts, I love beaches! While I am not really into Nicholas Sparks anymore, I read “The Last Song” on my first ever time visiting the ocean, and have been thinking about rereading it soon. I really just love the sound of waves lapping across the shore, seagulls communicating and walking through the sand.So any tea that has a lakefront or oceanside vibe to it is always one I’m down to try.

Fruity with a slightly grassy taste, this tea’s flavor is tropical and summery.

Ingredients: green tea, lemongrass, candied pineapple bits (pineapple, sugar), pineapple flakes, artificial flavors, acerola cherries, sour cherries, safflowers.

While I enjoyed this blend hot, I am really excited to prepare it iced. It has great flavor warm, but will be very refreshing on a warm afternoon. The cherry really stands out and is complimented nicely by sweet pineapple. Lemongrass brings a tartness that rounds the blend out well. It tastes (and smells) almost like Starburst.

The green tea in this blend is said to “suppress your appetite and boost your metabolism, helping you maintain a healthy lifestyle.” In addition to catering to my sweet tooth, I did think this tea helped me feel full longer, which is always a plus.

Let me know in the comments below what your go-to tea is when you feel the need to escape for a little while.
