About Tea of Life Ayurvedic Collection:
The word “Ayurveda” is derived from two words – “Ayus” meaning life and “Veda” meaning ‘knowledge’ or ‘science’. So the literal meaning of the word Ayurveda is ‘The Science of Life.’
Life or Ayus, according to Ayurveda, is a combination of senses, mind, body and soul. So Ayurveda does not just limit itself to the body or physical symptoms, but also provides comprehensive knowledge about spiritual, mental and emotional health.
The traditional healing system of Ayurveda is based on a theory of balance between the body (physical), the soul (spiritual) and the mind (psychological).
I am always confused by teas that claim to be “slimming.”
But I’m not here to talk about my feelings on the claims of “slimming” tea, and I’m not entering into a weight loss regime with this slimming tea from Tea of Life. I’m here to tell you what I’m tasting, not on whether or not it works.
And I’m not real crazy about the taste. I am not sure if it’s the Garcenia, Black Seed or Fenugreek that I’m not liking (or perhaps a combination of the three), but one redeeming quality of this tea (aside from the green tea) is the cumin. I actually like tasting the warm, toasty notes of the cumin.
Garcenia is supposed to taste acidic and sour. Black seed has more of a savory quality, like onions or garlic with black pepper and oregano. Fenugreek is supposed to be lightly bitter. So I suspect that what I’m not liking about this particular tea is the presence of garcenia and fenugreek. Because I’m getting a bitter and sour taste that I’m not crazy about.
The green tea is light and buttery and adds a hint of sweetness.
So, this isn’t the greatest tasting drink. It isn’t a tea that I’d drink just for the taste of it. I hope that the “slimming” aspect of this tea is successful because from this taster’s perspective, I’ll just say that I’ve tasted a lot of tasty teas from Tea of Life but this one isn’t one of them.
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
