Well, I think it’s time to slow the pace down on the holiday spirits and sit down and enjoy a nice cup of tea. Too many stimulating products have left me feeling a little on the run down side. So it was good thing that I received some Kusmi Tea to sample, since my body was craving pampering.

I received the Detox Tea and Green Christmas Tea to sample. The Detox tea mixes purifying Mate and Chinese green tea along with the delicious flavors of lemon grass and lemon essential oil. The Christmas Tea has orange vanilla and almond flavors making this a real treat.
I finally made the time to sit down with a book I had been planning to read, and decided to try the Detox tea first. This tea brews just as any other green tea, but without the bitterness that Green tea is sometimes known for. I found the taste to be light and cleansing, I’m thinking this is because of the lemon essential oil. As I read chapter after chapter, I continued to sip on my Green Tea wondering if I would feel any of the detoxifying properties going to work, alas, I did not. I do however, know the benefits of green tea on its own, so I’m certain that as soon as I add this to my diet on a more regular basis I will begin to feel and see the benefits.
I decided to try the Christmas Tea while at work. During the day I like to have something to stimulate my senses, either a candle burning or the sweet aroma of this tea. I love how aromatic this tea was once brewed. The flavors balanced each other out and made for a little sweet treat. I didn’t feel the need to add as much honey since this tea had its own sweetness. I also enjoyed this with a couple of those great gingersnap cookies sold at Cost Plus. It surely brought a smile to my face that afternoon. We all know that work can sometimes be mundane, and this tea added a little lift to help me get through the rest of it. All in all, I loved both of these teas and expect to try the detox tea fully after my New Year’s resolution has been made. The Christmas tea will continue to be my daily pick me up for the office. I would like to thank Kusmi Tea for providing with the tea to sample.
