My last of the three TeaCrush flavors that I shipped back to Idaho… and now they are gone. Boooooooo! Curse you TeaCrush and only selling these in the Bay Area! I really love this one too; I like this one almost as much as the Turmeric Ginger Pear. It’s very sweet, with this really nice pina colada flavor, but has this sharpness to it from the sparkling water/carbonation factor to the iced tea/juice combo. There is also a mild grassiness that almost gives me a slight pear-like note mixed with the pineapple flavor. This one does have to be shaken very well to free up the settled matcha at the bottom of the bottle, but it’s really refreshing.
I might actually try to create a sort of “homebrew” mockup of this one, because I frequently buy a mix of pineapple juice and coconut water in big bottles because it’s one of the few things I find that settles my stomach, and I have plenty of matcha. I figure I can use my same recipe I use when I make matcha lemonade, and substitute the lemonade for the pineapple juice/coconut water and see how it goes. Probably won’t be a perfect match for the amazingness that is Teacrush, but as far as flavor, I’m sure it will be close and still be tasty, and at least scratch that itch since I can no longer get Teacrush anymore…

Autumn Harvest! The second flavor from the TeaCrush stash I shipped back to myself from California. This one has a black tea base, and is mixed with lemon juice, apple juice concentrate, ginger juice and extract, monk fruit extract, and cayenne pepper. This is by far my least favorite flavor of the three iced teas TeaCrush makes, for only one reason… it’s a bit too spicy for my spice-wuss tastes. I really like lemon ginger teas, and this mostly does come off tasting like a strong lemon ginger iced tea… but the cayenne hits right at the end of the sip, and unlike the Turmeric Ginger Pear, where the turmeric and ginger just leave a little pleasant warmth on the throat and the tea is overall mostly sweet, this leaves a lingering heat on the back of my throat for far too long after the sip to really feel that refreshing to me. If the cayenne was missing, I’d really enjoy this one too, since I do like the flavor of the lemon and ginger before that spicy aftertaste hits.
I still have the Matcha Coconut Pineapple in my fridge, and then all my TeaCrush will be gone. Boo!
Flavors: Citrus, Ginger, Lemon, Pepper, Spicy
Autumn Harvest! Well, I’m breaking into my Teacrush… * forlorn sigh * I fell in love with this stuff and sent myself exactly one of each flavor home. It isn’t available in my area (it’s only sold in the Bay Area of California) and it isn’t shipped online. No one even sells it on Amazon! It’s an iced tea drink sold in glass bottles that I really love.
This was my favorite of the three flavors (though the Matcha Pineapple Coconut came very close). And I normally can’t stand iced rooibos, which is the base, which I’ve always found to taste like cough syrup when it’s iced, but there are no medicinal notes in this. In fact, it doesn’t really taste much like rooibos at all. The pear juice comes through more strongly as a base flavor, with the ginger and turmeric creating this earthy/spicy flavor note on that fruity base. It isn’t overbearing, though, causing no burning spice sensation. I get a really nice refreshing cooling feeling from the iced tea, but my throat only gets this slight warmth from the spice going through it, which feels really nice on a mild sore throat (great with some throat strain or fighting off a sore throat).
Sooooo good! Just love the flavor combo!
