Petit Tea's American Breakfast Tea Sticks - Review

Stick Shape Makes This a "Novel Tea"

Petit Tea's American Breakfast Tea Sticks

Encased in shiny, slim aluminum sleeves, Petit Tea’s Tea Sticks provide a modernized, unique approach to the art of tea drinking. Their innovative packaging gives tea leaves the space to unfurl, allowing you to enjoy full-bodied flavor without the hassle of having to use tea bags or strainers. In just under four minutes, you can have the enjoyment of a delicate cup of tea, or brew longer for a stronger cup.

And just as tea time should be, trying out Petit Tea’s American Breakfast tea stick was a refreshing experience, thanks to its unique rod shape. The stick provided control and was easier to stir than a regular tea bag. However, the American Breakfast tea stick seemed a bit weak for black tea, leaving a slightly bitter aftertaste when sipped straight. Petit Tea recommends the addition of milk to this blend, which would take away any bitterness. While it certainly gets credit for its creative casing, this tea's flavor could use a bit more oomph.

Price: $9 for package of twelve sticks.

Rating: 12/20
