If you've read my blog before you know that I'm a huge advocate of loose leaf tea. I think loose leaf has better taste and quality. When my friend approached me with "aloe tea" I made an exception! This tea is made by a company called Forever Living .
I opened up one tea bag to show you what the essence of the tea looks like.
- Orange Peel
- Blackberry leaf
- Aloe Blossoms
- Gymnema Sylvestre
- I had to look this up. Apparently another name for this is "destroyer of sugar." The leaves are used to make medicine for diabetes, weight loss, malaria etc. Read more about it on Here.
Aroma: There is only one way I can describe this and that is cinnamon dominated. If I were to smell this without knowing what kind of tea it was I would for sure guess cinnamon tea.
Taste: The cinnamon doesn't come out in the taste as much as it does in the smell. There is a dominant orange flavor followed by hints of aloe. There is a slightly sweet taste to it, even though I drank it unsweetened. Probably the most noticeable characteristic is that it was a very rich flavor that stays on your tongue!
Overall, I think this tea wasn't bad but I don't think the aloe taste was for me. I think this is an excellent taste for anyone who likes a fruity tasting tea! If the Gymnema Sylvestre really does what it's supposed to I would suggest this tea to drink just to better your health!
Have you ever had a tea like this? Share with me :)
