Each individual ingredient for this tea has been specially chosen for its attributes so that its a tea that can deliver.
Siberian Eleuthero Root: sustaining energiser , stress fighter and endurance builder.
Vitamins and Minerals: resistance to colds, sodium and calorie free.
Matte: promotes alertness, stimulating, satisfies hunger urges
Tea/ Herbs: green and black tea, citrus taste
Ginger: soothing and satisfying, enhances circulation, no sugar/caffeine lows
Electrolytes: recovery drink , minimising muscle cramping, thirst quenching.
Upon opening the tea pouch you are hit with an almost fruity aroma, with the ginger slightly coming through. You can’t at this moment overly smell the green and black tea within the blend.
Let’s get brewing !
Sportea recommends a brewing time of 3-5 minutes.
While brewing the aroma of the is completely different to its dried state its some how comes across even more fruity than it did before . The use of the ginger is still very prominent but the smell of the Siberian Eleuthero Root is now coming through.
Considering the black and green tea used within the blend I want expecting it to be the brewed liquid to be bright orange! However with the product being a performance based beverage I can see why Sportea may have gone down this colour.
Let’s get sipping !
I’m very surprised how sweet it is upon the first sip.
It’s quite surprising really ! As everything that the tea smells of aroma wise isn’t what you can taste. I can’t really pin point an exact flavour. Sometimes it tastes more fruity other times more gingery .
One thing I’m not getting from this tea is the flavour of the green and black tea coming through. The natural flavours within the blend are at the forefront of the taste. Having tried other performance style drinks it has a similar sort of taste to those kind of beverages.
As someone who leads an active lifestyle and from reading the benefits of other ingredients within the blend I’m all for natural benefits with potential energising effects which can be used in conjunction with healthy living.
