Pique Tea crystals are a very interesting product offered at piquetea.com which are, to the best of my knowledge, the first really innovative product of their kind — there is nothing else like them on the market. They first really properly launched around 2016, but it is only right now – around 2020 – that they seem to be getting a lot more attention. At this stage, most people have still yet to hear about Pique Tea, but I’m confident that this company and product will continue to grow in the years ahead. I myself only recently just got interestted in this tea after hearing about it from an acquaintance for the first time, and since then, I’ve been doing a fair bit of research on it, asking questions like the following…
- Are Pique Tea crystals healthy?
- If so, what are their health benefits? Does it help with gut health and fasting as claimed?
- Does Pique Tea calm you down?
- What type of Pique Tea should I get
- Is Pique Tea expensive?
The following is my Pique Tea crystals review for 2020 based on all the information I have gathered so far. If you are interested in more reviews, there are plenty on Amazon and on the internet.
First: what is Pique Tea anyway? Well, it’s a bit like instant tea – it’s super easy to prepare, and in fact, you don’t even need a kettle. You can take the crystals with you and then make tea for yourself anytime, and it works fine with cold water as well as hot water. The Pique Tea crystals dissolve in water quickly (except for the black and herbal teas – if you get those, you’ll need hot water for them to dissolve), and you’ll be able to enjoy it very quickly…
Note that Pique Tea contains caffeine, around 31 to 37mg (considered a medium caffeine level). This means that you probably won’t want to drink it late at night, which is when many tea-drinkers like to drink tea — instead, you may prefer drinking it in the morning or afternoon. It’s something you’ll have to take into account if you’re also a morning coffee drinker.
As for the taste (I’m commenting on Green and Black tea), it’s actually really nice. Even without adding anything else like milk, it’s a pleasant, not-at-all-bitter flavor. You would not necessarily have any idea that you were drinking any kind of different tea. And it’s fantastic how easy it is to prepare and drink straight away, no matter whether you prefer hot or cold water.
I am also happy to say that Pique Tea uses very high-quality ingredients, sourcing them from some of the worlds most protected sources of biodiversity (Sri Lanka, Northeast India and Zhejiang, China). It’s also very well concentrated, freshly harvested and FRESH.
The only disadvantage of Pique Tea that I can really think of is the price, as this is definitely much more expensive than ordinary tea. Even their cheapest tea on the website at the moment, Bergamot Green Fasting Tea, currently costs $38 USD for only 28 packets, and you don’t get much of a discount if you buy in bulk. That is multiples of what the cheapest tea you can get costs, and being that this is the smallest package you get, it’s fair to say there’s a small risk you’re taking if you buy the tea and don’t like it. I’d say the chances of that are fairly low though.
My overall recommendation is if you’re interested in Pique Tea and want to try it out, go ahead! I very much recommend it and the vast, vast majority of Pique Tea customers who try it also found it well worth the cost.
If you’re interested in Pique Tea…
Pique Tea is a cool startup, but probably not the coolest I’ve seen, as there are other companies doing very interesting things when it comes to offering food and drink that’s much better than what you’d normally buy at your local supermarket. Check out Four Sigmatic, for example. Super interesting stuff. You can look them up yourself, otherwise here’s a very interesting rundown of Four Sigmatic that’ll probably be interesting to you if you are curious about it.
