As you guys may have noticed by now, I am a huge fan of the Indigo Herbs of Glastonbury company. I genuinely find that their products are of amazing quality and value and love discovering new products of theirs, and this one has indeed been a brilliant discovery.
They sent me the Super Cleanse tea to review over the Spring, but with the colder weather we've been having, I've been stuck in hibernation mode and reluctant to give up on comfort foods and chocolate elixirs. Now that the warmer weather is here, it really felt like a good time to cleanse and try out this tea for you guys!
This particular blend contains a mixture of fennel, liquorice, ginger, dandelion, nettle and red clover, which makes it the perfect tea for cleansing and for putting a spring back into your step! Here's what they have to say about the tea:
"A cleansing, purifying tea that supports the body, and revives the hard
working systems of elimination. This tea helps the body recover from
over use of caffeine and other toxins. The delicious tastes of fennel,
liquorice and ginger uplift the healing herby tastes of Dandelion,
Nettle and Red Clover. Our Super Cleanse Tea Blend can be infused in
boiling water and made into a delicious herbal tea drink."
I tried this over four mornings in place of my regular green tea and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by the result. As well as being refreshing to drink first thing in the morning, I definitely noticed that I had less of an energy slump mid afternoon which was a huge bonus.
You might expect the tea to be very herby with so many strong flavours packed in, especially with the bitter tones of dandelion and nettle, but it was far from herby or bitter. The liquorice comes through as a sweet aftertaste that was pleasant to drink and needed no extra sweetener added.
I love that this tea contains whole clover and chunky herbs rather than being in powdered form, and as it comes in a handy re-sealable bag, I didn't notice any deterioration in the flavour over the days which was great.
If a cleanse tea isn't what you fancy right now, Indigo herbs do a good range of herbs and tea blends so there is sure to be one that suits you, give them a try!
