6 years ago, Sheena Brady (the CEO and Founder of Tease Tea) started blending tea out of her tiny condo in Downtown Toronto as a creative side hustle. Little did she know it was about to be her one true love. She became a Certified Tea Sommelier. Her vision was always about empowering women and supporting them through her Charitea program she started to give back to organizations dedicated to women’s empowerment. Her passion is fuelled by having experienced moments of challenges and adversity throughout her life, with a desire to be a part of creating a better support system for others. Asking Sheena to pick a favourite tea is like asking her to pick a favourite child.
The first flavor blend that I am going to discuss is Turmeric Tonic, which is an Herbal Wellness Tea Blend. Turmeric has long been celebrated for good reason. It's anti-inflammatory properties, high antioxidant amount, and phytonutrients, have been known to help to boost mood, improve skin, reduce joint pain and relax mind and body. Caffeine free.
Next we have Chai Love You, a Black Energy Tea Blend. Enjoy a chocolate chai experience with every sip. This decadent blend is the perfect substitute for that second or third cup of coffee. Get a sharp energy all day minus the jitters, withdrawals and crash you sometimes get from coffee.
And finally we have Pumpkin Spice, a Black Seasonal Tea Blend. Natural pumpkin and cinnamon flavors invoke festive feelings and a homelike comfort. This tea is a full flavored fall celebration.
Tease Tea included their Signature Tea Silicone Infuser in the Fall Trio. To use, you simply just pop off the top and spoon your favorite loose tea inside the stainless steel cup, then place it in your tea cup, add hot water and let it steep. Best for Medium to Large tea leaves.
There is a little drip tray included to set the infuser on once you've steeped your tea! Easy to clean! Simply discard used leaves and rinse with warm, soapy water. It is also dishwasher safe and BPA free. It's available in 3 different colors: Tease Pink, Soft Grey and Tiffany Blue.
I also received a sample of the Matcha Powder Green Tea to try and found it quite delicious. Tease Tea has sourced this product from a small tea plantation in Japan. It is the best shade grown, organic matcha they could find. This Superwoman of green tea is a pure indulgence of high grade matcha known for its significant health boosting properties.
Amongst the many health benefits of matcha, it is packed with antioxidants. It boosts metabolism and burns calories. It detoxifies effectively and naturally. It calms the mind and relaxes the body. It is rich in fiber, chlorophyll and vitamins. It enhances mood and aids in concentration. It provides vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc and magnesium.
