I arrive back into the office after my Christmas break only to find this little goody waiting at my desk.
Another colourfully packaged tea from Vitalife.
This is their Cleansing Black Tea with Blueberry, Raspberry and Milk Thistle. I don’t know about you but I think this sounds yummy!
I feel the new year has brought the perfect opportunity for me to drink this tea as it states on the packaging that it has a wealth of cleansing properties and antioxidants.
It also states on the label that Milk Thistle contained in this tea has long been reported to have protective and cleansing effects on the liver so this makes up a perfect cocktail of ingredients for anyone with a hangover, anyone looking to detox or anyone trying to lead a healthier lifestyle in general (aren’t we all)!
I pop my kettle on to boil, pop open the sealed foil bag inside the canister and take great delight in the aroma coming from the foil pack.
This aroma is very reminiscent of refresher sweets (without the artificial sugars or sweeteners though, hence making it ideal for anyone detoxing or trying to lead a healthier lifestyle).
My kettle has now boiled so here goes…
I take my favourite china cup from the cupboard and place in it one of the teabags, I then pour the hot liquid over the bag and instantly the office air is sweet smelling from the blueberry and the raspberry in the tea.
4 or so minutes later the liquor is a golden brown colour and the teas aroma is still as strong as it was after just half of the time left for infusing. I can’t believe how lovely and comforting this teas aroma is. You really have to try this, its a tasty treat without any of the guilt and its good for you…perfect!
Vitalife recommended that you serve this tea with freshly boiled water, infuse for 4 minutes, leave the bag inside the cup while you drink. Enjoy. Store in a cool dry place and drink 2-3 cups per day for maximum effect. I personally would be more than happy drinking this from when I wake until I go to bed (although maybe not a good idea all the way up to bedtime as this tea contains caffeine from the black tea element).
I am really pleased with this tea and feel that it is certainly a great addition to a healthy diet and exercise regime. Being a keen exerciser myself I think I would really enjoy this iced in the summer for a pre workout refreshment.
