Orange Detox Tea from Teavery is another herbal/tisane detox tea that we were sent for review consideration here at Sororitea Sisters. I have to say I’m pleasantly surprised at some of the newer herbals coming along the pike!
I was impressed with the diverse ingredients in this tisane. Orange Detox Tea from Teavery has Alfalfa, Dandelion, Orange Peel, Plantain, Red Clover, Peppermint, Nettles, Rooibos, and Orange flavor.
When it comes to the ingredients I have some notes, findings, and opinions I would like to share. Most of these herbs I would consider to be superfoods or super herbs! I have had some really great experiences with them individually-speaking. Of course I am not a doctor, am not offering advice, and am not making any medical claims, here, just sharing my own experiences along the way!
Alfalfa sprouts I enjoyed as a child. Believe it or not it was one of my 3 favorite foods growing up. I know – I know…I was a weird kid! Between that and Red Clover I have sprouted both with success over the years and have enjoy them in various ways! I used to have allergies to Dandelions when I was a teen but have since grown out of that – thankfully. I really enjoy the herbal, sprouty, citrusy, and floral notes in this tisane! When it comes to the Plantains I have to say it offers a sweet and slightly creamy texture to the sip. It’s funny because I HATE Bananas but I seem to like Plantains! The Rooibos also contributes to the hint of sweetness – I’m sure! The Orange flavor and peel really kick this one out of the park in terms of flavor. And Nettles are said to be one of the best things you can consume but I have a hard time incorporating them in my daily life so this herbal tisane was perfect in that regard! And I think you already know my stances and LOVE of peppermint!
I think the reason I am enjoying this cuppa is not only for the taste but for all of the ‘good stuff’ in it that seemed to mesh well with everything else in the cup! Orange Detox Tea from Teavery is another herbal and Rooibos blend I will be putting in my GOOD PILE.

I have been waiting to try this tisane. For a few reasons, actually. One being I really have to be in the mood to drink most herbals. The 2nd reason being I wanted to NEED to be Simmered Down to get the full effect of this Herbal Tea.
I’ve been a “Nervous Nelly” the last few weeks because of the Holiday Hustle Bustle (I still haven’t even started shopping yet because of the awful weather we have been having) and scrambling with work, home, and crafting problems and projects! So I figured this week was as good as time as any to give this tea a whirl!
I assumed this would taste REALLY herbally and I wouldn’t like it but I will say I was pleasantly surprised and I enjoyed this cup pretty well.
ALL of the ingredients play nice and are on the mild side!
I would say a little berry and a little herb – but again – the flavors blended well and were gentle! I LOVE that this tisane did NOT shout!
Leaf Type: Herbal
Where to Buy: Byron Bay Tea Company
Beauty begins on the inside, which makes our SKIN tea the perfect primer. The zesty blend of Lemongrass and Ginger is complemented by a purifying punch of Peppermint. So for a naturally healthy glow, and to sustain your internal vigor, sip BBTC SKIN.
OK, I admit it. Herbal blends scare me. Just a little bit. They do!
That’s because even with the finest ingredients, herbal tisanes can go wrong. They can taste medicine-y. Or they can just have some funky off-putting taste. So, needless to say, I was scared to try this blend from Byron Bay Tea Company.
But, this tastes really terrific! If this is a skin regime, count me in! I would be happy to drink this on a daily basis.
This doesn’t taste medicine-y or otherwise off-putting. The peppermint is strong, but not overpowering… and interestingly enough, this tisane doesn’t come off as “minty” exactly, although it does have a crisp and clean mint aftertaste.
I am also enjoying the way the ginger and lemongrass work together in this blend. The ginger offers just a hint of peppery flavor, while the sweet citrus-y tones of the lemongrass cancel out some of the spicier notes of the ginger. There is also a nice peppery accent in the finish that I find rather enjoyable.
But, I think my favorite part of this blend is the very subtle taste of rose. It is a nice touch. It is so soft and sweet. Very nice, indeed.
None of the flavors here are overwhelming… instead, they are very harmonious with one another. It has a pleasant, well-rounded taste. It is a very soothing, relaxing cup – especially nice at the end of the day!
