stash tea powder review
Refreshing summer beverage
Pretty good stuff, with the right sweetener
If you plan on making a pitcher of tea, forget it, it takes 4 packs for 64 oz and is still very, very weak in flavor, and it must be consumed in 12 hours (so they say) so you’re much better off brewing your own.
However, if you’re idea is to “stash” this in your purse (for the ladies) or pocket (for men, which would be weird) it’s still misses the mark. One packet does very little for flavor with 16 oz of water so you’d have to use two, and WHO drinks just 16 oz of water when out to eat or something of that nature? Also, with only 8 to 12 packets in a box (depends on flavor, who knows why?), that gives you 4 to 6, 16 oz drinks for $3. Not sure it’s worth it at all, I’d rather drink lemon water when out than this.
Not worth it!

I wouldn’t bother.
However if you’re idea is to “stash” this in your purse (for the ladies) or pocket (for men which would be weird) it’s just okay.

Also, with only 8 packets (the raspberry pom) in a box, that gives you 4 16 oz drinks for $3. Not sure it’s worth it at all, I’d rather drink lemon water when out than this, equally as bland but free.
Flavorful and refreshing
Very Reasonably Priced and Delicious
~The Rebecca Review
Way too weak for my tastes
I purchased a case of all 4 varieties, (when i say i drink iced tea, i am not kidding) and these were all way too weak when i mixed them in my 16 ounces water bottle.
I finally found that i needed to dissolve 2 packets in a small bit of hot water first (if not the tea clumped on me), and than add a packet of sweetener before adding the rest of the water just to make these palatable.
Over all I am very dissatisfied with the product and will stick with the other brands that are out on the market.

waste of money
Great product – at last!
Lightly sweet and cheeper than an Jamba Juice Matcha Shot!
Beware, if you have a corn allergy!!
lightly sweetened green iced tea powder
Not So Much!
Finally, an affordable, delicious green tea powder
The product works as advertised. It dissolves quickly in cold water making it great to carry anywhere and it tastes great too. The instructions say to use one packet for 8 ounces of water, but actually it should be used with 16 ounces of water, otherwise it can be too bitter.
It not only saves money, but has replaced my canned green tea completely eliminating the number of cans that I need to recycle monthly.
great alternative to bottled green tea
A couple of years ago I had a physical and my doctor told me that my Triglycerides were high. I was a serious soda drinker (sometimes as many as 5 cans per day, not diet), so I decided I needed to start drinking something “healthlier.” I gravitated toward Green Tea because I like it. I averaged 2-3 1/2 liter bottles per day for 2 years (I also averaged about 1-2 cans of soda per day).
I recently had my triglycerides checked again and instead of going down THEY DOUBLED. They were over 300 (over 150 is considered high). I about had a heart attack right there. Now, I am not an overweight person, and have had a fairly high motabolism, but I have started to create a belly (I call it a Dr. Pepper belly because that is my favorite soda. I do not drink alcohol of any kind). I am telling all of this to you because ALL of my other tests came in within normal levels, including all other aspects to my cholesterol.
I did research and found out that if you are not overweight but have weight gain around the belly area, it might be due to consumption of a lot of sugar products. The excess sugar consumed, in this case, can be turned into trigylcerides. I looked at what I was eating and drinking to see if this was the case for me. What I found shocked me. The 1/2 liter bottles of green tea has MORE sugar in it than a can of soda. I checked several different manufacturers of green tea and I found them all to have about the same amount of sugar.
I concluded that between my morning coffee, green tea bottles and soda, I was consuming over 1,100 grams of sugar a week ( or about 4,000 callories of sugar a week just in drinks)!!
I was looking for an alternative to the green tea bottles and found the stash tea products. I personally, do not have the time or patience to use tea bags, so I was interested in the tea powders. I ordered the lightly sweetened green tea powder and tried it. And I loved it. I then proceeded to buy the other 5 flavors of the green tea powders and love them also.
There are 4 flavors that do not have sugar added, so I use a few drops of Stevia Glycerite to sweeten the drink. It does not take a lot.
The best thing is that the tea powders cost about 1/2 or less than the bottled green teas I use to drink.
To end on a personal note, I have altered my drinking habits and now drink 1 liter of the tea powder drink and 1+ liter of water per day. I still drink 1 can of Dr. Pepper on the weekend, but that is it. I have been doing this for a little over a month now and between my altered drinking habits and the fish oil pills, I have lost about 5 lbs. and am due to get my triglycerides checked in a couple of weeks.
I hope this helps anyone that is in a similar situation to me and realize that just because it says its healthy does not mean it is.
nice substitute for soda or sugary tea
1) for strongest blueberry taste, use less than the 16 ounces of water that the instructions indicate (my first try came out like water with the merest hint of blueberry);
2) stir REALLY well and be prepared for a bit of sediment anyway, as well as for an oddly green (I know it’s green tea, but I rarely drink green things, so it seemed a bit weird to me at first); and
3) if you’re going to use a sweetener, why cancel out the health bennies by adding something like aspartame or Splenda or etc? I added a bit of agave nectar and found it perfect, but then I also like it without any sweetener at all (as long as I use less water).
By the way, this makes hot tea as well, although it’s marketed as iced tea powder.
lots of uses for this green tea…
I generally like most tea (though not the over-ally flowery blends)…
Being on more of a health kick in recent years, I have added a lot more GREEN tea to my diet in one form or another…
from straight brewed tea <> hot or iced…
To adding the powder to things like salad dressings, smoothies, baked goods, etc.
I am not new to green tea….as I first started drinking it when living in Japan some 30+ years ago….
in the ground form known as matcha.
A quality product. Dissolves well.
I like both the unsweetened and the lightly sweetened.
Crushed up leaves!
Nutrition Facts: all 0%, except Sodium (15mg) and Sugar (12g)
Basic Instructions: add one packet to 8oz of cold water and stir or shake well to dissolve…
My Opinion: It is too sweet for my taste, even diluted in a 16.9oz water bottle. It almost tastes like sugar water. I think the unsweetened version would be better. 5 star because it delivers what it promises.
This is Japanese green tea. NOT Chinese green tea. There is a difference.
