I’m afraid blogging has taken a backseat the past couple of days, and I apologize for that. I was feeling under the weather. However, I’m hoping to get back into the swings of things very soon. Without further ado, I’d like to share with you my favorite tea drinks at the moment. It’s always tea o’clock for me, and when it comes to flavors, I like to experiment (living on the edge, I know 😉
If you’re on Instagram, you may have heard of this German company named Teatox. That’s how I heard of them in the first place. They are also available now on Amazingy if you’re curious to try their drinks (here). Usually, I’m a bit sceptical of these different so-called detox teas that you see all over Instagram – those specifically aimed at making you lose weight – and all the before/after pics they upload following the tea detox. Needless to say, results are mostly showing when paired with a regular physical activity and a balanced diet, not just by drinking tea (but it’s not always mentioned ha!). Instead I decided to get Pure Beauty and Daily Balance. Before I go on about the taste and the actual benefits of these two drinks, let me just point out how pretty the packaging is. I know I’ll be able to reuse those tins really quickly. That being said, I’m wondering why there aren’t any refills available. I can’t see myself collecting dozens of tins though, and in the long run it would more eco and affrodable if refills were sold. But maybe it’s going to happen in the future.
An infusion of antioxidants and vitamins (white tea, pineapple, olive leaves, chamomille, lemongrass, ginger). It’s a soothing and hydrating herbal tea. In terms of results, I can’t say my skin has cleared up, however drinking tea increases my daily intake of water which is always beneficial, and I can definitely say that my skin looks much calmer.
Ingredients: White Tea, pineapple, lemongrass, ginger root, nettle
leaves, red clover blossoms, pansy herb, orange blossoms, olive leaves,
bur roots, chamomile blossoms.
Teein-free and hydrating, this a calming blend, the taste of lemongrass stands out, which I really enjoy. Just like Pure Beauty, don’t expect something strong, you can feel a tiny ginger kick but that’s about it. On a daily basis, I feel like it helped with digestion and worked its way to relieve a bit of tension.
Ingredients: Verbena, honeybush, ginger, lemon grass, lemon myrtle leaves.
I found these cute individual silken pyramid tea infuser boxes in a little boutique and decided to pick up 4 flavors I hadn’t tried from one of my go-to tea brands, namely English Tea Shop. I can’t seem to find these in my local health store since they only stock the Green tea, Peppermint and Rooibos (which are tasty too). I won’t go into details about Earl Grey, because it’s not a particularly original flavor. It was a bit too strong for my taste, but it was good nevertheless. I usually don’t drink Black tea, but I was curious to try it anyway.
Chocolate Rooibos & Vanilla
Delightful! For those not fond of Rooibos, the taste is camouflaged by the Chocolate and Vanilla aroma. It really tastes like dessert, so obviously I loved this one. I’ll try to order it online, because one cup was all it took to get me hooked haha.
Green tea pomegranate
Another favorite. I never realized that Pomegranate and Green tea could be such a winning combination! Pomegranate adds a slight sweetness to the bitter taste of green tea, and to me it legit tasted like candy. The taste is really fruity, and very fitting for the spring and summertime. It would also be delicious as an iced tea.
A mixture of Licorice, Cinnamon, Peppermint and Lavender, which I also want to incorporate in my tea arsenal. Anything aimed at helping me feel more relaxed and zen is a winner for me.
What’s your favorite drink at the moment?
Yum yum<3 English tea shop teas have such a cute packaging 🙂 xx
Yes, it's super cute and when I look at their website, I realize that they so many products! I can't find a third of it though in my store haha. xx
I'm loving white tea with lemongrass at the moment and anything with liquorice.
Oh white tea and lemongrass sounds delicious! Liquorice is great too, I used to dislike the taste as a child but growing up, I love it more and more 🙂 xx
I've not heard of Teatox but I've seen English Tea Shop tea's in TK Maxx & I think I have one of their Acai Berry one's….I'm sure it's that brand haha! I'm a bit fussy when it comes to tea and often just have english breakfast but I do like to experiment every now & then 🙂
Hehe, there's nothing wrong with being fussy 😉 Let me know if you try ETS tea, I think you'd enjoy the chocolate-Vanilla one. xx
The cute packaging and the yummy flavours have definitely caught my eye!! Need to reduce my stash a bit first before splurging on something new 🙂
Hehe, I feel you! Let me know if you get to try them 🙂 xx
Love the packaging of these teas! Currently I'm in love with Rishi's earl grey tea, I went through the box so fast I'm now down to about 2 servings left so I'm trying to ration it. 🙂
Not gonna lie, the packaging really seduced me in the first place, but they taste as good as they look.
I've never heard of the Rishi, so I'll have a look at ti, thank you for the suggestion 🙂 xx
I've not heard of either of these! I currently love English Breakfast by Dragonfly, plus my old faithful Clipper Organic "Regular" Tea! I can't stand Roobois, but Chocolate and Vanilla… well, that sounds like a whole 'nother story! 🙂 xx
Hephzibah, I promise you that you won't feel the tast of Rooibos, Chocolate and Vanilla are totally taking over! I need to try Clipper Organic, I've seen it but I can't remember which flavors they had 🙂 xx
I love tea,, like you i also got a detox tea but beging already thin and ok i didnt notice anything special..plus the smell was mmm leah (talking about your tea brand).
