      Delicious way to get my immune system defense!

      I have yet to try a tea from Tea Forte that I don’t like. This line of Wellness teas is great!

      NEW Defense

      I had my first cup of this new blend this morning. First the aroma is wonderful. Great balanced flavor. Loved it. I think it's my new favorite.

      Defense Green Tea

      I ordered this new tea based on the description. I was a little skeptical as could it really match such a desirable description? From the first sip of my first cup, I was so pleasantly surprised. It was the perfect mix of green with substance. It was delicious & did match its description! I really felt great the day after each afternoon indulgence of Defense tea. I highly recommend this tea. (I consider myself a tea snob!)

      Great Immune System Booster but Tastes Bitter

      I'm a huge fan of the healthy products and natural ways to boost your immune system so I was super excited to try the Defense green tea from the new Wellbeing Collection. The ingredients are all from a super-foods category: green tea, echinacea and elderberry. Hey common cold, get ready to take a punch! This green tea blend is a great way to naturally boost your health... and it also tastes, well "healthy". I'm not sure which ingredient in particular, my suspicion falls on the beetroot one, brings a lot of bitterness to the taste. As the Defense tea blend wouldn't be my favorite cup of tea on a cold winter night, it would do just perfect on the winter night when you are sick in bed with a common cold where fast recovery is bigger priority than taste.

      A balanced tea

      Defense tea is a fruity yet bitter tea that walks a fine line between these two extremes and manages to produce a nice flavor that rejuvenates the body and clears the mind. There's a hint of sweetness while drinking that almost makes you forget that you're drinking tea, but the bitterness keeps you grounded and the harmony of these two flavors is what provides a truly pleasant experience.
