This tea comes in little sachets that are 100% biodegradable and compostable which I really like. At first glance it didn’t look so much like tea as it did spices or herbs. That is probably the Ashwagandha.
This tea’s flavor kind of reminds me of quinoa in a weird way. The smell too. I wouldn’t say it’s bad, or that I don’t like it, but I wouldn’t say that this would be my first choice either. I would say it’s interesting, and maybe it will grow on me. I remember the first time I ate quinoa i wasn’t a fan, but it did grow on me.
Ashwagandha is an herb that is known to reduce stress, and also help with depression. The snowy weather has me down, so today seemed like a perfect day to try this out. I wouldn’t say I feel less blue about the weather, but my body and mind both feel a little more calm and level headed. Apparently Ashwagandha can reduce cortisol levels. Cortisol is a stress hormone, and it can be very destructive on our bodies. I’ve been reading up on Ashwagandha, and the health benefits are plentiful. The benefits kind of make the taste a lot better to be honest.
The Jasmine flavor is there, but mostly you will taste the earthy grassy flavor. This might be delicious mixed with a fruitier tea for a delicious iced tea.
This tea does have caffeine, but a very low amount so that also makes me happy. From everything I’ve just read about Ashwagandha, I feel like it would benefit most of us. I definitely recommend this tea, and will be drinking it again.
