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!)
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.
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!
