Lately, I’ve had the opportunity to try out different beverages. Coffee was the main ingredient in a few, and tea another. These can be found in the grocery store and packed into your lunch back or back pack for a drink on the go or at work. I stuck a couple of these in my cooler to enjoy during a road trip and also brought them to lunch at work and we also keep them in the fridge at home. I love soda, but I’m trying to stay away from the really sugary sweet stuff, even my coffee drinks aren’t as sweet as they used to be.
TeaZazz – This is a semi-new sparkling iced tea though TeaZazz has been around on the west coast since 2006. We really enjoyed this pleasant blend of tea (black or green), fruit flavors and carbonation. TeaZazz is a refreshing change from tea and flavored waters, with a light bit of fizz and without the High Fructose Corn Syrup. There are only 25 calories in a serving of TeaZazz which makes it a delicious low …Diana
Have you tried the Rooibos Tea from South Africa? It’s a red tea with a much more concentrated level of antioxidants than other teas and caffeine free. It’s only grown in South Africa. The Rooibos used for Redespresso is grown at the highest altitude and hand-harvested from a single family run farm in the Western Cape of South Africa through a process that has been handed down through generations.
Rooibos tea is a red tea, which has a really nice aroma although some have likened it to tobacco. I can get a whiff of that, but mostly, it smells like tea to me. The plants are different also. Redespresso is designed to be used in an espresso machine, or coffee machine, much the same as you would use coffee grounds. I don’t have an espresso machine, so I used my Senseo to make a cup of Redespresso tea.
The tea came out with a light layer of foam on top, just like the coffee does. It’s naturally sweet and didn’t need any sweetener. However, after tasting it straight, I added milk and sugar and it tasted nice that way also. It’s not spicy like Chai, it’s a red tea and tasted like tea but without the tannins. Redespresso is supposed to be darker and stronger in flavor than regular Rooibos Tea.
