A Comprehensive, Restorative, Advanced Daily Superfood+ Vegan D3
Green Vibrance + 25 Billion Probiotics
Version 14.0

**A review of Green Vibrance version 14.0 by Vibrant Health

Company: Vibrant Health
Superfood: Green Vibrance
Tea Type/Varietal: green
Steeping Vessel/Amt Leaf: cup/ 1 scoop
Liquor Color: dark forest green
Leaf Characteristic: smells of dusty soil/ dampen earth

  1. Steeping: none

I decided to try this live culture of pro-biotic super food that is to be found in my purchase of Green Vibrance. I take one spoonful of the stuff and put this in my cup and adding apple juice into the mug I stir and stir vigorously until it all dissolved.

The pungency was strongest prior to adding the apple juice, now it is mildly pungent (if one is inhaling and expecting to find it) and the taste is a sweet mixture of apple juice with an earthy-ness kick to it. The coloring is a darken mixture of soil like green.

It is rawness mix or laced with apple juice and I drink this cup not as fast as when I had this mixed it only with water. The juice does make it more enjoyable, and knowing it is good for your health in that it supports digestion, skeletal health, liver health, detoxification and all body system; fights stress, builds energy & endurance is all the more reason to keep drinking this stuff and to reap these benefits over time.


Overall tasting notes: sweeten raw cup of Green Vibrance mixed with apple juice

Cup’s characteristic: raw dampen earth

Liquor color: dark forest green

Taste: grainy-sweeten with the apple juice mixture

**A review of Honey Vanilla Chamomile herbal Tea by Celestial Seasonings

Company: Celestial Seasonings, Inc.
Tea Name: Honey Vanilla Chamomile herbal Tea
Tea Type/Varietal: herbal
Steeping Vessel/Amt Leaf: cup/ tea bag
Liquor Color: golden honey
Leaf Characteristic: chamomile, honey and orange peel scent is what one meets when opening of the tea pouch.

  1. Steeping:

1st Steeping:
Water Temp: 190 Fahrenheit
Time: 5-6 minutes

I take this tea sampler and put one tea bag in my cup and pouring over the bag some freshly cold tap water, I put this in the microwave for two minutes and then leaving it to steep the remainder of time (totaling six minutes).

At once, one can appreciate the aroma as it fills the air: vanilla, sweet honey, orange peel, and chamomile. It is wonderfully mixed and the tea color when I remove the cover from the tea cup is that light golden honey. I excitedly take a quick sip and another sip of tea and begin to relax into this day. I surrender to whatever is to come at me (be they be negative or positive); I with my amulet (this cup of liquor) can withstand it all.


Overall tasting notes: a heady cup of honey-vanilla-chamomile tea with orange peel and lemongrass as the final notes playing upon one’s palette. There is a brightness that comes to having this cup of tea.

Cup’s characteristic: freshly of herbal teas

Liquor color: light golden honey

Taste: sweetly sunny

I’ve never tried this one—didn’t realize it has orange peel in it as well. Sounds yummy!

DeDe
Instant Thai Tea
With cream and sugar

**A review of DeDe Instant Thai Tea by DeDe

Company: DeDe
Tea Name: Instant Thai Tea
Tea Type/Varietal: powdered tea
Region: Thailand
Steeping Vessel/Amt Leaf: cup/ powdered
Liquor Color: bright orange
Leaf Characteristic:

  1. Steeping: none

I have not had this tea in months since having purchase quite a bit of this tea from Amazon.com. I guess I went through a withdrawal from it and having found this stash, I quickly open the package and took one of the powdered tea pouch to use. I open the pouch and pour content into my tea mug and pour in freshly tap water and mixing and mixing it so that most of the powder is dissolved (I don’t want it in lumps at the bottom of my cup). I place the cup in the microwave and warm this for two minutes and this helped to dissolve the rest of the powder. I realized this as I give the cup a final stirring/mix.

The tea’ color is brightly orange, like cream-sickle. And it smells sweetly as well. I take delight in sipping of the tea because I know it is very good; that orange cream in flavoring is wonderful as I swallow and take more gulp of the tea until it is all gone. I am sorry to say. That’s o.k., there is more for me to have another day.


Overall tasting notes: taste like orange cream or sherbet ice cream. It is wonderful tea to have any time of day.

Cup’s characteristic: bright and delicious

Liquor color: bright orange

Taste: sweet like a cream-sickle

Green Vibrance + 25 Billion Probiotics
Version 14.0

**A review of Green Vibrance version 14.0 by Vibrant Health

Company: Vibrant Health
Superfood: Green Vibrance
Tea Type/Varietal: green
Steeping Vessel/Amt Leaf: cup/ 1 scoop
Liquor Color: darken earth
Leaf Characteristic: smells of dusty soil/ dampen earth

  1. Steeping: none

I was given information for this Vibrant Health’ Green Vibrance and read up on it when I got home and took note of the fact that it aids in the support of healthy digestive tract (improving nutrient absorption), support healthy liver function and detoxification…and supports many more. I have only named some things of interest to my health.

I decided to have some of the Green Vibrance plainly with water. I take one scoop of the Green Vibrance and add it to a cup of water and stir it vigorously. It is an earthy, darken green coloring; like that of the earth and it has a pungent smell to it. When first smelling of this pro-biotic food, I think it is horrible, too strong in odor and when I sip of this green mixture it is semi-bitter and not at all pleasant. So I drink it very fast to be done with it.

I store the container after closing it in the fridge and I am reminded that this is a 15 day supply.
-————————————

Overall tasting notes: strong dampen earth aroma with grainy texture and strongly bitter; well medium bitterness. I think this is why it is suggested that one mix it with liquid (preferably juice).

Cup’s characteristic: raw-dampened earth

Liquor color: darken green; like wet moss

Taste: bitter and medicinal

Peppermint (sampler pack) by Celestial Seasonings, Inc.
Herbal Tea, Caffeine Free
Bursting with even more flavor!

**A review of Peppermint Tea by Celestial Seasonings, Inc.

Company: Celestial Seasonings, Inc.
Tea Name: Peppermint Herbal Tea
Tea Type/Varietal: Herbal
Steeping Vessel/Amt Leaf: cup/ tea bag
Liquor Color: light to bright red
Leaf Characteristic:

  1. Steeping:

1st Steeping:
Water Temp: 190 Fahrenheit
Time: 5-6 minutes

Using fresh tap water I put one tea bag in my cup and microwave the tea for 2 ½ minutes and leave it to steep by covering it for the remainder of the six minutes totals. I am enjoying, already, the tea’s aroma which is that peppermint sweetness filling the air around me. It is heady and much more so when I remove the covering from my tea cup.

The tea’s liquor is a brightly reddish and smells of peppermint; that minty freshness that is to be found in a pack of peppermint gum but not as sweetly as the chewing gums. I sip of tea while thinking of chewing gum and of this tea’s natural sweetness.

This cup of herbal is tea is seemingly right; in that all the notes hitting the right spot. Nothing is overt at all in this cup of tea. It is a nice cup of peppermint.


Overall tasting notes: a good cup of tea with that spicy peppermint which is good for one’s digestion. It is bursting with even more flavor!

Cup’s characteristic: fresh herbal cup of the peppermint leaves soothing my stomach muscle walls.

Liquor color: bright red

Taste: spicy peppermint

I was wrong of tea color being red at all. I had this tea while in the library the other day; I had a few of the tea bags with me and my bottle of water; so I took one tea bag and placed this in the bottle and let it sit for a long while; I started to notice that the color is like honey; a golden brown and no red at all. Even when I added another tea bag to it, color remain golden dew, honey colored. Sorry for this error. The peppermint is very strong but tolerable. I seem to recall my reaction to some peppermint teas and liken of them to that of chewing gum. This is a good peppermint tea and bestly served hot.

Having brought fresh water to a boil, I pour some of the water into my cup with tea bag in it. I leave it to steep for a few minutes.

Company: Demoulas Super Market, Inc.
Tea Name: Green Tea (100 % Natural)
Tea Type/Varietal: green
Region:
Steeping Vessel/Amt Leaf: cup/ tea bag
Liquor Color: light brown
Leaf Characteristic:

  1. Steeping:

1st Steeping:
Water Temp: 170 Fahrenheit
Time: 1-2 minutes

I have not had this tea brand for quite some time. It is nice to frequent some old favorites.
Using one tea bag, I put this in my cup and add freshly boiled water and leave it to steep for a couple of minutes. Because this tea brews strongly on its own, no more than two minutes is needed for steeps. The aroma is strongly of green tea, a bit medicinal in the scent/aroma. Tea color is lightly brown and as I sip the tea it is mildly astringent with a slight tingling when swallow.

I like this tea because it comes across to me as green tea should taste, at times medicinal to heal whatever is ailing you.


Overall tasting notes: the tannin in this green tea is subtle making for a good cup of green tea.

Cup’s characteristic: fresh and mildly astringent

Liquor color: lightly brown

Taste: astringent and medicinal

Steeping Vessel/Amt Leaf: cup/ tea bag
Liquor Color: lightly golden
Leaf Characteristic:

  1. Steeping:

1st Steeping:
Water Temp: 190 Fahrenheit
Time: 3-5 minutes

I like that I can enjoy this Chamomile tea anytime of the day. This is my mid-day cup of tea and I am fixing it very hot with just one tea bag. I leave it to steep for close to five minutes and the aroma is sweetly as it is inviting.

I sip of the tea carefully so as not to get burn. Tea has a lovely golden color and the aroma is of fresh chamomile plant; it makes me think of the outdoors during a hot afternoon where the heat is warming the fields which fill the air with that fragrant aromatic of the chamomile flower.

I am enjoying this tea as is and I don’t feel the need to add anything to my cup of tea. It is sweetly on its own.


Overall tasting notes: sweet and smooth with the chamomile plant enhancing my cup of tea.

Cup’s characteristic: fresh chamomile, very smooth and sweet

Liquor color: lightly golden

Taste: a sweet liquor
