The Persimmon Tree (A Tea Company) Review and Giveaway Ends 5/6

The Persimmon Tree Review and Giveaway Ends 5/6 via ProductReviewMom.com
Disclosure- I received the teas for free to give my honest opinions.  I was not compensated for this post.

I use to drink coffee all the time until it started giving me the jitters, not to mention giving me coffee
breathe, yuck!  I gave coffee up and started drinking tea.  My favorite kinds are chai tea, green tea, and passion-fruit tea.  Natural tea is better drink for your health than drinking coffee, sodas, juice, etc.

I don't really make tea unless it's already in a tea bag, so I would always stop at my local Starbucks and have either a Green Tea Frap or their shaken Passion-Fruit teas.  It can be quite expensive always going to Starbucks to buy their teas so it's time for me to learn to make them on my own and plus without all the added sugar.

Thanks to The Persimmon Tree, they gave me the opportunity to review a couple of their teas.  

The Persimmon Tree is online tea company based in California (my home state), USA that carries premium loose leaf teas and botanicals.  The Persimmon Tree offers their customers some of the world's finest organic teas and botanicals. Not only are most of their fresh high quality teas from around the globe hand-blended and organically grown, some of their teas are also fair trade, ensuring fair working conditions, fair wages, and a better life for tea workers from countries across Africa, Asia, and Latin America.


The kinds of teas The Persimmon Tree has:

1. Black

2. White

3. Green

4. Rooiboos

5. Chai

6. Oolong

7. Pu-erh

8. Herbal

9. Blooming


The two teas I tried out were Rooibos Vanilla Chai and White Coconut Crème (Best Seller).  Since these teas are loose leaves and I don't have a tea maker, I went out and bought a pack of empty reusable tea bags to pour my loose tea leaves in.


 

My Review


Rooibos Vanilla Chai- This tea was full of warmth spice bold flavor.  I did not need to add any sugar and it tasted good just the way it was.  I knew just from opening the canister and smelling the spicy aroma it was going to be a great tasting tea.

Ingredients- Organic Rooibos, Cinnamon, Cardamom, Cloves, Ginger

White Coconut Crème- Once I opened the canister, I could tell this tea would be sweet due to the coconut smell.  Although I do not like coconut, I still enjoyed drinking this tea.  It has a smooth and sweet coconut taste without me adding any type of sweetener in it.  This tea is prefect for laying out on the beach this Summer.

Ingredients- Organic White Loose-leaf Tea, Organic Safflower, Organic Cornflower, Organic Coconut, Natural Flavors

Learn how to brew loose tea leaves


 

 

How I prepared the loose teas

1. I boiled two cups of hot water
2. Pour tea leaves into the empty tea bag
4. Added both tea bag and boiling water into a pitcher
5. Place pitcher in the refrigerator over night
6. Cold ice tea is ready to serve  


 

 Is The Persimmon Tree Worth a Try?

These teas are way more better than using premade tea bags.  The Persimmon Teas are bursting with flavor and are high premium quality.  Their teas are the prefect drink for anytime of the day or night and you can drink it without adding anything or simply add milk or sugar.  Also these teas are good for your health.

  24. I typically use tea bags just due to the convenience of "take it and go". But out of preference, I choose loose leaf because of the flavor quality.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Depends on how much time I have. If I need to go, I will use bags. If I have time, I prefer to use loose tea. Seems to give it more flavor

  34. I prefer using loose leaf teas because I can control the amount of tea leaves used vs the amount of water I am using. I use tea bags purely out of the convenience.

  39. I find loose teas are often better but quite often I default to tea bags....I'm a little lazy when it comes to tea and I don't have a decent quality loose tea holder thing so it gets a bit annoying. So, typically I use tea bags but I prefer loose tea when possible.
