Pique Tea is a new upcoming tea company that is based out of San Francisco. I first noticed the company a week or two ago and then I approached them after I came across their Instagram account @Pique_Tea. Their cute tea packaging drew me towards their company. Plus I was really intrigued by hot tea with no tea bag and I eventually found myself Direct Messaging them asking if they would be interested in me doing a review for them. Their willingness to collaborate really made me feel warm towards this company. They sent me a few tea packets to sample! I got it in no time at all!
I was sent 4 packets of Tea Crystals to try and a very sweet personalized handwritten note on company stationary. I loved the presentation; it was simple, but friendly and inviting.
Earl Grey was the first tea that I sampled. I had poured the hot water into my mug before pouring the package of Tea Crystals. Once I placed the Crystals in it got a little messy. So my next cup I put the tea in first and the hot water second, and voila it was perfect! So, that is my recommendation to you, put the Crystals into your mug beforehand and then add the hot water. The Crystals dissolved right away! I’m not really a tea drinker, so to my taste buds I thought that the Earl Grey was a bit bitter, but my mom really enjoyed the flavor. Next time I might add some honey or sugar. But I loved the Jasmine tea. The aroma is amazing, and the taste is smooth.
Next there is Mint Sencha Green Tea and Sencha Green Tea. Both tea's are ultra smooth and easy to drink! My favorite has to be the Mint Sencha Green Tea. I like the minty flavor it gives off. Neither tea needed any sweeting. They were both yummy!
To sum it up not only the convince and the cute packaging, but the wonderful taste makes this tea a real winner. There is no guessing on how long to leave a tea bag in and there is a smooth cup of tea every time!
