Delicious Flavia / Alterra Teas by the Bright Tea Co.!

The Bright Tea Co. specialty teas are now being made for the Flavia single cup beverage system. The Flavors have some of the same themes, but different names and somewhat different recipes.

Currently, there are 10 flavors of Bright Teas available. The quality is the same or better than the old Flavia recipes, so you don't have to worry about being disappointed in the new flavors! The packaging is at once trendy and yet more classic, and the colors are bright, much more attractive to have sitting on your counters at home or the front room of your corporate office.

The two classic "British" brews, Earl Grey & English Breakfast, have the same name. The next most popular Bright Teas by Alterra / Flavias are the Asian style teas: Green Tea with Jasmine is a fragrant treat, with every sip you get an ever-so-slight breath of jasmine flower (it's best flavored with honey). Bright Tea Japanese Green is the traditional Sencha / Matcha reminiscent of the elegant Japanese tea ceremonies. Select Green is a stronger green packed with antioxidents.
Another fragrant choice is Bright Tea Co. White Tea with Orange. It is a delicate white brew overlaid with just a hint of orange essence. Chai Spice is just like the old Flavia Exotic Chai, but a tad spicier, with a slightly more prominent cinnamon base. Bright Tea Co. Peppermint Herbal is an excellent beverage to sip when you've got a cold (helps open up those airways); when you have mild stomach irritations (Peppermint is a traditional remedy for stomach complaints); Raspberry Herbal is a bit of a pick-me-up: It's somewhat peppery and a tweak in the nose. Bright Tea Lemon Herbal? Calm and laid back and very tasty.

Many of the teas are as good iced as they are served warm. The Peppermint Herbal & White with Orange are especially refreshing when cold.

If you've never tried the new Bright Tea Co. teas, now's the time.
