Premium loose leaf tea sampler review




I received this premium loose leaf tea sampler from NuovaVita. I just recently got into drinking tea since Fall and Winter are approaching quickly. I spent over $120 at Teavana and realized that it was a little too much for an average person to spend on tea. 

This loose leaf sampler is only $15.95 on Amazon and includes 10 different flavored pouches. Each pouch makes about 5 cups of tea. So this whole sampler makes roughly 50 cups of tea for less than $16. Talk about affordable. (Not to mention, its wrapped in a perfect holiday themed package, perfect for Christmas gifts!)

The 10 different flavors include:
  1. India's Original Masala Chai
  2. Cinnamon Chai
  3. Sweet Cinnamon Chai Assam Teas
  4. Assam Exotic Black Tea Green Tea
  5. Organic Darjeeling Green Teas
  6. Singbulli Organic and Fair Trade tea
  7. Clonal Premium Signature Exotic Darjeeling Blend Nepal Tea
  8. Samal Valley FF15
  9. Organic Breakfast Tea
  10. Early Grey Tea
It is a great combo of chai, Darjeeling, Assam, green, Nepal, breakfast, and Earl grey teas. Each package states what date they were packaged to ensure freshness. All ingredients are 100% natural. And they offer 100% satisfaction guarantee. 



I still haven't drank all of these teas, considering there are a lot of flavors to try. I followed their directions, directly quoted below.

Directions Take 1 teaspoon tea leaves. About 2 grams of leaves is ideal for a black tea preparation. Pour freshly boiled water over the tea leaves. Boil the water to 100 degrees celsius. You can then let it cool down to upto 90 degrees. Steep for 3-5 minutes depending on your taste. Strain the leaves out & enjoy. Best consumed without or with very little milk. A sweetener like sugar or honey can be added as per taste.


I usually only steep my black, green, and chai teas for about 3 minutes because I don't like them too strong. But I placed about 1 tsp of leaves into a strainer and left it in boiling water for about 3 minutes. I then added only a teaspoon of honey and enjoyed the delicious taste. I am so excited to try all the other flavors, especially with my loved ones on these cold crisp nights.

I did receive this product at a discounted  rate in exchange for an honest review. I would recommend this for anyone who loves a great variety pack of loose leaf tea. I will probably buy a few packs for coworkers who love tea as well during the holiday season.
