Be Cool is a part of the Kusmi Tea Wellness collection, of which I have the sampler tins. Essentially this is a licorice-mint blend with some embellishments thrown in for good measure. It tastes good and refreshing and is touted as having various functional health benefits.
I always wonder about those claims. I do not doubt that, in the long run, the consumption of massive quantities of antioxidants and vitamin C will be good for the body. But what about a single cup of tea? It seems to me that in order to reap the alleged benefits of these sorts of teas—marketed as health-inducing elixirs—one would have to imbibe them religiously over a lengthy period of time.
Fortunately, this one tastes good, so I’ll certain finish my 20 gram tin. Will that be enough? That is the question.
I just realized that this was my seventh new tea in a row! This calls for a public announcement of my intention to test and review as many new teas as I possibly can without breaking the series with an old cupboard stand by. How long can sherapop keep up this Blazing New Rating Pace???? The race is on…Other steepsterites are deeply involved in sipdown madness. For me, the personal challenge will be to see how many untested teas can there possibly be in my house? I am a bit afraid to find out the answer to this question, but we shall see… (This could take a while, as I have two orders en route and only just received two others!!!)
Wish me luck!
