Happy March! Spring is near, and we’re in our final stretch of winter hibernation before the sun’s rays are upon us once again. To help us through the last few weeks of winter, I’m reviewing the teas from my February SipsBy box.
Elderberry Lemon Balm Immune + Stress by Yogi
This caffeine free tea has ashwagandha, lemon balm, black elderberry, lemongrass, licorice, ginger, hibiscus, cinnamon, lemon peel, black pepper, and lemon oil. I love the combination of ashwaganha for immune health and stress, black elderberry for antioxidants, and lemon balm for relaxation, with other supportive ingredients like ginger. This tea has an almost flowery hint to it along with a light but bright citrus flavor. This is a great cup of tea to kick off your morning or end your evening will nurturing your body through the last of cold seasons! I’m on the look out at my local stores to buy a box myself!
Mango Magic by Ahmad Tea
This simple black tea and mango combo packs a powerful punch of caffeine and flavor! I was surprised by how fruity this tea was, and the mango aroma filled the entire room. The two compliment each other perfectly, and the boldness of the black tea plays off of the powerful mango in a delicious dance! A potent black tea with tropical mango, what’s not to enjoy?
Cacao Green by The Loose Leaf
This caffeinated tea combines roasted cacao and kukicha twig green tea for an odd but lovely flavor. The slightly chocolate flavor of the cacao pairs well with the nuttiness of the green tea, but the cacao wasn’t as strong as I thought it would be. It’s an interesting and nutty tea for a chilly afternoon!
Organic Cold 911 by DavidsTea
This caffeine free tea is perfect for soothing a winter cold, or for a little pick me up if you’re feeling a little run down. The peppermint, apple, juniper berries, eucalyptus and organic orange flavoring comes together for a recovery tea that soothes the throat and soul. The eucalyptus had a different put interesting taste with the peppermint, and the sweet apple and orange with a slight bite from juniper berries is the perfect tea to sip on when you’re sick. I will definitely be saving these for the next time I feel a cold coming on!
