Product Review | Serengeti Tea Company Ticolino Tea Stick Teas

Today I would like to introduce you to the Serengeti Tea Company which has been in business since 1993. The Serengeti Tea Company caters to the most demanding consumer and is redefining the tea and coffee experience with their new line of tea and coffee sticks. The company uses only the finest ingredients in their teas and coffees and they ingredients are sourced from around the world.

Information About The Product: The Ticolino Tea and Coffee Sticks deliver the ideal combination of quality, style and convenience. Each state of the art infuser works as it's own stick so you won't need a spoon. All products are manufactured in the United States in a clean and sanitary facility. Each one is nitrogen flushed and wrapped in an aroma barrier film for maximum freshness of the product. The tea stick is comprised of all natural ingredients and flavors, nothing artificial at all.

My Review: Today I am reviewing two different packages of Ticolino Teas for you from the Serengeti Tea Company. First up...the Ticolino Peach Green Tea. This is a light bodied green tea that features the sweet taste of fresh peaches. It is loaded with antioxidants and made with real fruit. In this box I received there are 18 tea sticks. Using these tea sticks is a really simple process. You boil some water and pour it into your tea cup with your tea stick in the glass. You let it sit to steep for 3-4 minutes. If you want a strong flavor...use the stick to stir it around a few times and if you want a lighter flavor...just let the stick sit in the cup for the steeping time. Once it is done steeping you simply remove the tea stick and toss it away. There are no messy tea bags or spoons to deal with. Once mine was done steeping I sat down to enjoy my first cup. I like light teas and this tea is certainly that! I am a big fan of flavored teas but I don't like when the "fruit" over powers the tea and makes me feel like I am drinking warm fruit juice...this is not that! This is a great tasting peach green tea and I could taste the wonderful blend...tasted like a green tea with just a -hint- of the peach flavor which is exactly how I like my flavored hot teas. I give it 10 stars out of 10 stars! I love this flavor! You can purchase this product for $4.95 per box.

Next up is the Ticolino Jasmine Green Tea by Serengeti Tea Company. This is a mild body green tea and is all natural. Matter of fact...it has only 2 ingredients...green tea and jasmine blossoms so you can not get any more natural than that! You make this tea exactly like the first tea that I outlined above. Yesterday during breakfast I decided to try out this particular flavor so I made my husband and I each a glass of this tea. What I really love about this particular flavor is that one some days I am not in the mood for a fruit flavored tea but yet...I want to sit down and have a nice cup of hot green tea and this tea...is fabulous for those who just want a green tea without the fruit flavoring. It has a nice "clean" taste to it and has a little stronger "green tea" taste to it as compared to the first tea we tried out but seriously folks...it is fabulous! You can purchase this product for $4.95 per box.

Out of these two flavors...my favorite was the Peach Green Tea and I have enjoyed several cups of this tea since receiving it. However...out of these two flavors my husband prefers the Jasmine Green Tea. They are both excellent teas and it will just depend on your individual taste buds on which one you prefer. What we both love about this tea stick system is that NO tea flakes leaked out of the sticks and got into our tea. They are super easy to use and make a fabulous cup of hot tea. We give these products a huge two thumbs up!

Please visit Serengeti Tea Company and check out all of their flavors that these Ticolino Teas come in as I am sure they have a flavor that will appeal to you. We love the quality, wide-variety of flavors and their affordable prices!
