Pure Leaf Pyramid Tea Bags #PureLeafHomeBrew

Earlier this month, Influenster pleasantly surprised me by sending over a Pure Leaf VoxBox that included two full size boxes of tea that included 16 pyramid bags of tea each. The two flavors were Iced Green Tea with Citrus and the other was Black Tea with Vanilla.

The following is my review of the Pure Leaf Iced Green Tea with Citrus that I posted to Influenster:

First off, I would like to thank Pure Leaf and Influenster for sending me box of Pure Leaf Iced Green Tea with Citrus with 16 pyramid tea bags to try out.  

Don't let the box fool you into thinking that you can only have this tea iced, you can have it hot as well! Most of the time, I do enjoy my tea hot, so at first, I was worried that I would have to make this tea iced in order to enjoy it. However, even in the instructions, it recommends pouring boiling water over one pyramid bag and let it steep for 2 minutes before removing the tea bag. At this point, you can enjoy your hot tea beverage, or if you prefer, you can fill the glass with ice and then stir. Also, if you don't mind waiting, you can always just leave the hot tea in the freezer or fridge and let it cool that way.  

However, since I prefer my tea hot, I decided to go ahead and drink it after I let the tea bag steep for a minute or two. For those of you who like it a bit sweeter, I recommend adding in a tiny teaspoon of sugar. Otherwise, drinking it as is perfectly fine as well.  
So the first thing I noticed was the fragrant citrusy scent, and was delightedly surprised at the cute pyramid bag that encompasses the tea leaves. The quality of the aromatic green tea yearns me to return for one sip after the other.  
Knowing that this Pure Leaf tea is Rainforest Alliance Certified just adds to the fact that I love the tea more and more. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this complimentary tea sample, and I would definitely stock up on some more Pure Leaf varieties in the future. I can't wait to try the Black Tea with Vanilla; I imagine that one would be equally as delightful!
