Jada Mountain Mint Tea Pouch

I picked up a package of these at the New York Coffee and Tea Festival. The basic idea behind these pouches is to have the great taste and benefits of tea without actually having to brew it in a cup. They are available in five tea flavors and one coffee variety. Jada’s motto is “It steeps in our mouth, not in your cup”. You just pop these pint size tea bags into your mouth and suck on them to release the flavor.

I’m not sure exactly how to describe the experience of this product. I am very particular about textures and the feeling of a paper tea bag in my mouth was rather unsettling. The mint taste was fine but I just couldn’t get over that odd feeling. Bits of leaves also came out of the bag frequently. There are some people who would enjoy this product but I think I would much rather have a nice cup of mint tea.
