Serengeti Tea Company Ticolino Tea Sticks

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 sticks are comprised of all natural ingredients and flavors, nothing artificial at all.

They are really easy to use and all you do is boil your water, place a tea stick into your tea cup and then pour the hot water into the cup and let it steep for a few minutes. Once it is done steeping you simply toss the tea stick and enjoy your drink!

My Review: The generous folks over at Serengeti Tea Company sent me 2 boxes of their Ticolino Tea Sticks to try out for all of you. Each box contains 18 tea sticks and sells for $4.95.
I received a box of their Cardamom Black Tea and a box of their Pomegranate White Tea to try out for all of you.
First up...the Serengeti Tea Company Cardamom Black Tea which is an all-natural tea with real cardamom seeds. This is a medium body tea, strong aroma and has a medium tannins. This is a popular Eastern favorite, spiced black tea. I decided to let my mother test this tea out for us since she loves cardamom and she loves black teas. Mom made the tea as outlined above and added a little cream and sugar to it. She told me it had a nice taste to it and she loved how easy it was to make (without having to use teas and stuff) and she really enjoyed it. For the past 4 mornings she has enjoyed a cup of this tea with her morning breakfast. She likes strong tea and this one is perfect for strong tea lovers.

Second up...the Serengeti Tea Company Pomegranate White Tea which is all-natural with real fruit and it's antioxidant rich. This is a white tea with a light body, medium aroma and light tannins. I have been enjoying this tea for the past several evenings and I must say, it has become one of my favorites. It is a naturally sweet tasting tea but yet you can taste the slight tartness in it from the pomegranates...really nice combination of flavors. If you love sweet teas with a fruity taste...this one would be perfect for you!

Overall Impression: I love the teas from Serengeti Tea Company! I love these Ticolino Tea Sticks as I can take them on the go with me. You don't need tea bags, straingers, spoons, etc. All you need is a cup of hot water and a tea stick and you are good to go!
