I really enjoyed this tea, a clean natural flavour that is complimented by honey quite well.

drank Liver Detox by Dr. Stuart

I’m in Austin this week visiting my friend. Today we went to Central Market, which is a nice-sized grocery store. The tea selection there was AMAZING!! They had at least 50 bins of loose tea – mostly from Rishi and Republic of Tea. And they had lots of packaged tea as well, a lot I had never heard of – like this brand.

I was really hankering for a peppermint tea (because of my ongoing bloated issues) and I saw this brand and type. The first ingredient is peppermint, but there were a lot of other ingredients too. I should have reconsidered when I saw Licorice Root on the list too, but I didn’t.

When I steeped this tea, I was hoping for some yummy peppermint tea with “accents” of other herbs. But what I got was mostly licorice root. Ick. This must be a very detoxifying herb because it’s in a lot of detox teas. My second steeping was less licorice-y and more peppermint-y, which was better, but who wants to do two steepings just to get the taste they like.

All in all, this tea was underwhelming. I was really hoping for more with all the crazy ingredients.

My favorite tasting detox tea is still the Yogi Peach Detox, even though I don’t think that has any peppermint in it at all.

A caution. If you have any trouble with rooibos or honeybush then stay away from licorice too. They are in the same family which is nightshade. This can upset your stomach and intestines if you have nightshade allergies (which I do). Look up the list online if you think these foods might be bothering you since this is a common allergy family.

Psssst, rooibos/honeybush/licorice are in the legume family :) Nightshade is eggplant/tomato/potato, etc. IIRC you’re allergic to both though, Bonnie?

A lady I went to school with gave me this tea a few weeks ago. She tried it and hated it, but she said I could give it a try and see if I liked it any better. I didn’t.

As a hot tea, this was horrible. It made me wince and not touch the cup for the next four hours. By then, it was room temp, and almost bearable to drink. I decided that it would make a better iced tea than anything else. Chilled, it’s a little better, a little fruity but nothing I could really identify. I used the last of what was given to me to make a couple pitchers of cold tea, but I mixed it 2:3 with a strawberry tea, added one pomegranate for a bit more color, and sweetened liberally. It’s really the only way I can drink it without choking. By itself it was a pale pinkish color, I believe, and I wasn’t able to pinpoint what I was tasting when I first had it.
