A few weeks ago I was asked if I would like to review Buddha Teas. Of course I said yes, I’m an avid tea drinker! Naturally, I checked them out before I replied and was delighted with my results because they are certified organic. YAY for no iffy toxic ingredients 🙂 Of all the flavors, why did I choose dandelion root? During the spring/summer months you can see this herb (not weed) all over the place and the reason is…
ALL PARTS OF THE DANDELION IS NUTRITIONAL & MEDICINAL
According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, dandelion is rich in Vitamins A, B, C, D, and as well as minerals such as iron, potassium, and zinc. After the long winter months it can be hard for the body to get adjusted to the pollen, weather change, etc and all of those nutrients mentioned are needed for immune health, especially zinc.
Many people like to refer to this time of year as spring cleaning. Not only should we be cleaning out our homes from clutter but also our bodies from toxins built up throughout the winter. In traditional Chinese, Native American, and European medicine, dandelion is used for a number of illnesses such as kidney disease, gallbladder, all types of stomach issues, skin problems, eye problems, inflammation, etc. It also acts as a diuretic, may reduce blood pressure, and lower cholesterol by increasing bile in the gall bladder preventing coronary arteries.
Liver, kidney and gallbladder cleanses are extremely helpful in aiding the release of toxic waste. If those toxins are not removed they eventually store themselves in fatty tissue. By doing regular cleanses we can avoid these illnesses caused by inflammation from medicine and overall environmental toxins.
MY THOUGHTS OF THE BRAND & TEA
My first thought when tasting the tea is that you can definitely tell that it’s roasted. To me it smells and leaves the same after taste as roasted sunflower seeds without added sweetener. With honey it taste pretty good as well but I usually drink my tea without it. This tea made me feel very alert but calm, which is the reason many people use it as an alternative to coffee. I’m also a sucker for teas with quotes and buy them specifically for that reason. I love positive affirmations!
If you’re someone who loves tea and a multitude of variety, Buddha Teas is for you! They have an amazing selection of green, black, herbal, specialty, premium blends, and even Chakra teas. I highly recommend this tea and brand because after just a few short weeks of drinking this tea I’ve been able to be caffeine free. Plus, the brand is certified organic, does not contain any artificial flavors or sweeteners, they’re also Kosher certified, the tea bags are bleach free, they don’t use staples on the tea bags, and the tea cartons are 100% made from recycled material. This brand was made with conscious consumers in mind, so I love it and will purchase more for myself.
