One thing that cultures from all over the world have in common is tea. It can symbolize so much, a blessing, healing, a bond, and a celebration.
Kusmi tea has a huge collection of teas but their new release, Tropical White Tea, is incredible and possibly my favorite! It is a white tea with a light blend of mango passion fruit. The flavor is a calm, soothing, and not overpowering.
There are several ways to drink this Kusmi Tea, making it another reason why I like it so much. I’m showing you three different ways today!
Start off your morning with a warm cup of Kusmi Tea. I warm up my water and slip a tea bag in there. It’s a great flavor to start the day off with. You can pair it with eggs and toast or a healthy bowl. The light tea compliments everything.
COOL ICED TEA FOR LUNCH
During lunch, I like to cool off with a nice soothing drink. An iced Kusmi tropical white tea is the perfect combination to go with a salad or sandwich. Another reason I like having this drink during lunch is to help me get over my lunch food coma. The tea gives me a little boost of caffeine to keep me going through the rest of the day.
In the morning, I drop a tea bag in hot water and let it soak for a few hours in the refrigerator. In 2-3 hours, the tea is perfectly cool and refreshing!
COCKTAIL DRINK USING KUSMI TEA
Have you ever used tea in your cocktail drink? Well, neither had I! Then I learned that Kusmi teas could be a great flavor to infuse into alcohol! I created a great mango margarita on the rocks using the Kusmi tropical white tea! Give it a try and let me know what you think.
This is the recipe below:
1.5 oz tequila of choice
0.5 oz of Grand Marnier
6 oz of Kusmi tropical white tea (cooled)
0.5 oz of lemon juice
Mix all of the ingredients and shake well. Pour into a glass and add ice. Cut a few slices of fresh mangos and throw in your glass. You can add salt to the rim if you like as well. Take a sip and enjoy!
Some of the reasons I love Kusmi tea are that the teas are 100% natural, there are over 100 different types to choose from, they are subtle (not overpowering like others), and their packaging is beautiful. They are great to gift for anyone and any occasion too!
