Power Up With Teami Blends!*

I was recently contacted with an opportunity to try out some tea from Teami, an American tea brand who have recently launched in the UK! Now, I'm pretty much powered by tea and love trying new teas, so I was thrilled when Teami offered to send me a pack of their Energy Blend Loose Leaf Tea* to try...
Teami Energy Blend
This tea blend claims to offer a wealth of benefits, from improved immune functioning and mental alertness through to better concentration and digestion; however, there is a disclaimer on the packaging stating that these claims haven't been evaluated by the FDA and that the product isn't intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease. I'm always a bit dubious about these kinds of claims, to be honest, but at the end of the day it's a cup of tea so I thought it was worth a try! Teami says, "Our tea is already delicious, but we suggest that our tea lovers add honey, nectar or lemon if needed."
Teami Energy Blend Nutritional Info
I've been brewing one teaspoon of the tea leaves in a cup of boiling water; I don't own a tea infuser so I get all the leaves and other bits and pieces floating in my cup, which I don't mind too much, but I think I'd invest in an infuser if I was going to drink loose leaf tea often! I've tried this as is (which was fine) and with a teaspoon of honey to just add a little sweetness - I don't take sugar in regular tea and this is the same for me, it doesn't need the honey, it's just a nice addition on the odd day. I didn't find the tea to have a particularly strong flavour, it's really just like drinking a medium-strength black tea, with a hint of the peppermint leaf. The blend includes Oolong, Yerba Mate, Ginseng, Lemon grass, Peppermint Leaf, Goji berry and Rhodiola rosea.
Team Energy Blend Tea
I don't honestly know whether I've noticed an improvement in my energy levels as I am still always tired; I don't drink coffee, which I think this is intended to replace, but I do drink a lot of tea (10+ cups per day, most days!) so for now, I'm happy to replace my morning cuppa with Team Energy Blend and see how it goes. I've only been drinking it a little over a week, so I'll update if I notice any changes!

Teami Energy Blend is priced at £19.99 for 65g of tea leaves, which I do think is expensive for tea; one packet claims to make 30 cups, which is around 70p per cup. If I'd noticed immediate, obvious benefits then I'd say it was worth it, but as it stands I'm not 100% sold and at this point, I wouldn't buy it again myself. I'll certainly keep drinking it, though, and see if I notice anything in the next few weeks. Teami offer a number of blends including a Relax blend to aid sleep and an Alive blend to boost nutrients in the body. You can get 10% off any orders with Teami with my code 'INDIGO10' so if you fancy trying any of them, save yourself a few pennies! Do you drink tea? What's your favourite kind of tea? Would you try an Energy blend or anything similar?

  1. I've got some Teami at the moment, but mine is designed to cleanse your system and help in weight loss. I'm really liking mine at the moment, though I think I need an infuser too!

  3. I like the idea of it. I'm a huge coffee drinker and I don't think I would try it. If I go for a tea it has to be earl gray :D

  4. Sounds interesting, I do like oolong generally, so this would be good to try.

  6. I love discovering new herbal teas and this one sounds interesting. Agree that a) it's a little expensive and b) I need to get an infuser too! Be interesting to hear if you do see energy benefits 👍

    Thanks for sharing!

  7. I don't like strong flavoured tea so this might suit me well! I need to try it. I'd also need an infuser too. I'd be interested to see if Team Energy Blend gives me an energy boost :) xx

  8. I agree with it being expensive and if it hasn't got you sold, then it isn't worth buying x
