Salada Green Tea :: Review and Giveaway


Did you know that I love tea? I much prefer tea to coffee. I love all kinds of tea, especially green tea for its amazing benefits. Salada makes great tasting green tea that is good for you, your wallet and the environment. They offer more than 20 varieties of green, white and black tea. I had the chance to try three iced green teas and two active blend k-cup varieties.


I own a Keuirg. My husband uses it for coffee and I use it for tea. So when I heard about Salada's Green Tea Single Serve Cups for the Keurig, I was very anxious to try them! The Salada Green Tea Fiber Boost starts with a premium green tea and blends in natural lemon flavor for a great taste and natural fiber to help give your body the added boost that it needs. With the busy on-the-go lifestyles that we live, getting enough fiber into your diet can be a real challenge. It is lightly sweetened. I needed a little extra sweetener, but I really liked the lemon flavor.


Also available is the Salada Green Tea Energy Boost. To keep pace in today's busy lifestyle, don't you wish you had more energy to help you get ahead? This blend starts with premium green tea and blends in select vitamins and botanicals to help give you that added energy you're looking for. This version is also lighly sweetened with natural blueberry flavor. Yum! I really liked the fruity taste of this one. With the natural goodness of green tea, the crisp and satisfying taste of Salada and the convenience of a single serve cup, who knew that getting an energy boost or extra fiber could be so easy and delicious?


My absolute favorite drink has to be iced tea. Salada offers three delicious varieties of iced green tea. The flavors include Peach & Nectarine, Raspberry and Tropical Fruit. To make this iced tea you just boil one quart of water per tea bag. Seep for 3-5 minutes and pour over ice. It's very easy! Salada uses only premium green tea leaves, carefully selected and hand picked from the lush tea gardens in the Far East, to make their Iced Tea Blends. The result is a 100% natural iced green tea with a crisp, refreshing and satisfying taste. My favorite blend is Peach & Nectarine Green Tea for Iced Tea, although I really liked them all. These blends are perfect for summer. They are light and refreshing with a fruity taste.


I have been keeping a pitcher of the green iced tea in my fridge at all times. It is so much better for you to drink a glass of refreshing green tea instead of grabbing a soda! I really enjoyed these teas and I think you will too! Salada wants you to try all three flavors in the Salada Green Tea Family Size for Iced Tea line as well as two kinds of Salada Active Blend Green Teas!

Emperor Shen Nung, who was known as the "Divine Healer", always boiled his water before drinking it. He had observed that those who boiled their water had better health. One afternoon, as he knelt before his boiling water, some leaves from a nearby tree blew into the water. The Emperor noted a delightful aroma and, upon sipping the beverage, proclaimed it heaven sent."...interesting
