This great selection box of fruity herbal teas was sent to me in my prize bundle from nutritionandhealingfoods.com. I recently won a healthy food hamper from this great website. This Higher Living Herbal Tea box is particularly great as it contains four different teas instead of just one flavour. It's great for people like me who need introducing to herbal teas! Here are my thoughts on each...
Vitality: The all spice and cinnamon were the strongest tastes in this warming cup of herbal tea. It would be a really nice flavour to sip whilst cosy and warm on a winter's evening. It's a reminder of winter days and Christmas in a cup!
Very Berry: This was my absolute favourite. I was really impressed by the sweet fruity flavours. It's definitely suited to those with a sweet tooth as it really is like liquid sweeties! Scrumptious! This tea made me wonder why I've rarely tried fruit herbal teas before as this is so super delicious.
Ginger Kick: This is the least flavoursome of the lot. Maybe it needs longer than four minutes for more flavour to come through but I found it far too subtle. I was really hoping for much more of a ginger kick as I do love ginger. (See update below*)
Evening: The most calming drink of all four, so definitely perfect for an evening brew. This had the most herbally taste; exactly how I'd imagine a herbal tea to taste, but I still liked it! The fennel and lavender stood out to me the most and the entire combination of flavours was very natural.
*Ginger Tea Update (22/04/15) - So, not happy with my ginger experience, I decided to try again. I popped two tea bags in a cup and left for around ten minutes to brew. I decided to leave one in whilst I sipped too. WOAH. GINGER! Way more flavour and a real strong kick of flavour! Maybe this is the way to do it!
