I love tea! I drink 2-3 cups every day. I guess I am kind of picky though and I prefer black, green, and Rooibos teas most, but I have been expanding and enjoying other teas, specifically herbal blends.
I strongly believe tea has great health benefits. Tea has high levels of anti-oxidants, and also prevent free radicals in the body. Free radicals are cells that may cause cancer. I used to drink tea once a day, a few times a week, and have always rarely been sick. A year ago I began drinking tea daily, and now it's up to 2-3 cups per day and I haven't been sick with a cold in over a year! I usually get one cold a year.
I was so excited to be able to review a new tea for my blog. The tea is KUSMI Tea.
The flavor I got to try is called DETOX. It is a blend made of mate, Chinese Green Tea, Lemon and Lemongrass. This blend is supposed to invigorate the body and make you feel good and healthy. I really did like the taste, it was refreshing and the mixture of flavors worked well. I have had herbal teas where it just tasted like a bunch of random plants and herbs tossed into a tea bag!
The tea bags itself are quite unique....nothing like the traditional bag and string you get in a box of Lipton tea. The bag is made of woven material, with a woven, thicker string attached (see photo.)
The tea can be bought online, and is also available at certain store, specifically Bloomingdales in NY and CA, plus other specialty stores in New York and California. You can see the specific places at the KUSMI website.
