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.
I’m so excited about the Wellbeing Collection and have been trying each of the five tea blends over the past few days. What perfect timing! With the occasional stress of the holidays, as well as my plans to eat more healthily and detox my system afterward, I know I’ll be having at least one or two of these new blends each day. I love having them in the loose leaf tins, since they make it more economical to indulge in a cup or two whenever I’d like. This new Defense green tea blend has become a daily ritual for me — not only is it delicious, but many of the ingredients like echinacea and ginger are great home remedies for strengthening the immune system and warding off colds. The ginger and licorice root also give this tea a lovely warm, slightly spicy flavor, with floral undertones provided by the rose petals. After trying each of the five Wellbeing blends, Defense has become one of my two personal favorites, along with Radiance (an herbal tisane), which I highly recommend as well. You can’t go wrong with any of the teas in this new collection — I love that they’re delicious and also provide benefits for your body!
