How Do You Take Your Tea?

I normally take my tea black. However, if I was in Hong Kong or the UK then I’d take my tea black with milk. No sugar, though. However, it doesn’t seem like a popular thing to do in the States; and I’ve come accustomed to just drinking it black. If I’m not having black tea, then it’s either Genmai green tea or Oolong. I’m also a creature of habit – meaning, I rarely try different brands of tea, unless I’ve tried it before.

So, I branched out. A few weeks ago, I received FashionistaTea and their appeal was that they’re combining fashion with tea. It’s Tea with Style! The packaging is adorable, too. It comes in a high quality tin canister, which holds 18 tea sachets.

A little bit about the product and company:

The FashionistaTea uses tea from small tea growers around the world. Their collection consists of all organic, botanical, Fair Trade Tea. The tea sachets are crafted from biodegradable silk. The tea is not only used for consumption, but as a conversation piece due to its fashionable and unique packaging design.

The owner of FashionistaTea is Brenda Dillon Cavette, she is a member of The Speciality Tea Institute, a division of The Tea Association of the USA. She is also a former television product and Emmy Award nominee, who produced numerous fashion and design segments.

I absolutely love the tea sachets with a leopard printed heel on the tags.

I actually requested a black tea, so they sent me the Organic Fashionista Blend ($13.49). It’s ingredients include Organic Black Teas, Organic Rose Petal, Organic Lavender, Organic Orange Peel, and natural flavor. I was a little hesitant to try it at first, because it had rose petals and lavender – ingredients that I’m not used to having. However, the tea is quite delicious! I can taste a little bit of both with a hint of the orange peel.

Directions include adding water temperature at 206F (very specific!); 1 tea sachet per 6-8oz, then steep time is 3-5 minutes. I have a heated water dispenser and the highest it goes to is 195F and that, I think, was fine. The tea tasted great, regardless.

The other flavors, other than Fashionista Blend, offered are:

  • Fair Trade Chocolate Rooibos – $11.49
  • Organic Basic Black – $11.49
  • Organic Creamy Earl Grey – $13.49
  • Organic Green Pomegranate – $12.99
  • Organic Masala Chai – $13.49
  • Organic Orange Chamomile – $9.49
  • Organic White Tip Jasmine – $12.99

Having tried and loving the Organic Fashionista Blend, I wouldn’t mind trying their Creamy Earl Grey, Masala Chai, and White Tip Jasmine. They all sound delicious. If you’re interested in trying out their teas, you can visit their website to order yours.

    I’m not usually a big tea drinker, but this concept is so appealing and novel. The orange chamomile sounds especially lovely!

    This is a cute idea! I’m a huge tea drinker, but I really only stick to one kind, Irish Breakfast. This would be a cute gift for a tea drinker. I take my tea with a splash of milk and a scoop of raw honey :)

    I usually put honey or honey and a splash of milk in my chai. My favorites are Earl Grey and Chai, but those other flavors sound good too! What a cute little tea company.

    I’m one of those sugary tea drinkers, or sometimes I add honey, which is just as sweet lol. This company is so cute, I love the leopard print!

    I’m not a huge tea drinker (I wish I would, all the cool kids do it!) BUT how cute is this brand? I have two from Teavana I love, but the price tag is a complete killer. I’ll have to remember this!

    I love tea! I love coffee more but I’m a big drink of both. Chia is one of my favorites with a splash of milk and some vanilla splenda, to keep it low cal. Great post! Glad to see your blog posts in my inbox again. ;)

    That sounds so fun! Always lovely when fashion sneaks into random other aspects of life. ;D I love teas so I would definitely try it and the prices actually look reasonable! I’ll have to remember to try it out some time. :)
