A citrusy splash…
(Ginger, green tea, apple, licorice root, orange peel, sweet blackberry leaves, matcha green tea, natural lemon flavouring.)
Who’s ready for an all-natural detox… in liquid form? Now that we have officially left 2016 behind us, what better time than now to sip to a fresh new start, via another offering from DAVIDsTea’s Feel Good Collection that is chocked full of healthy, beneficial ingredients. There is matcha, as well as regular green tea; both are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and fiber. The addition of licorice root aids in digestion and helps to soothe irritation and inflammation of the digestive tract, while the citrus is hydrating and great for helping to improve your immune system. But best of all, there is ginger. It’s almost like a secret weapon. This spicy root is renowned for its powerful cleansing properties, and that’s the very first thing you can smell when you get a whiff of this tea, along with a splash of citrus.
Every ingredient in this tea is dusted thoroughly with matcha powder, so even after the minimum steeping time of three minutes, you’re left with a really murky looking cup of tea. It’s similar to swamp water. You know, like a very unappealing brown-ish green shade. I can already predict that this blend is going to get plenty of comparisons to the Tea of the Month, Live Wire Lemon, which makes sense, but there’s more of an earthy kick from the ginger here, as well as the licorice root that hits you at the back of throat with its natural sweetness. As you get closer and closer to the bottom of this brew, the ginger becomes more and more prevalent; ginger just has a way of stealing the spotlight and making itself known as much as possible, and here is no exception. You can’t really taste the green tea or the matcha at all, but it’s still there for a nice boost of energy. Zestfully Green, simply put, is the love child of the aforementioned Live Wire Lemon & The Buzz.
