I suppose one of the perks of having a blog is constant offers to try products for free. I rarely accept these products, not because they aren't enticing, but because I've got my hands full and often times, they aren't actually products I might buy for myself even if I do enjoy them for free. I'm not the type to tell you to go out & try something that I'm not likely to buy. But when I was contacted by Sun Chlorella to try their 100% Natural Eleuthero Infuse Your Mood Tea and write a review, I jumped at the chance. I LOVE tea.
If you follow my instagram feed, you know I adore my morning coffee. There's nothing like waking up in the morning, sitting with a hot cup of coffee and getting ready to start my day. It's a ritual I truly love. But once I finish my morning cup, I steer clear of caffeine for the remainder of my day as I already have major trouble sleeping, and I take tea breaks. Maybe the only thing more relaxing than my morning cup of coffee is my afternoon & evening cups of tea. When I'm stressed & need a breather, I heat some water, sit on my couch and drink a cup of tea with my eyes closed. I have a huge tea collection- green, chamomile, ginger, cocoa spice, etc... and am always excited to try new flavors.
The offer to try Infuse Your Mood tea couldn't have come at a better moment. I was juggling work, marathon training & attempting to date... pulling all nighters to get it all done, and feeling incredibly stressed. According to their website:
Infuse Your Mood Tea is a 100% natural, caffeine-free beverage that contains Eleuthero, an herb that is proven to give one’s body a natural boost, decrease stress and supports your body’s fight against the ill-effects of modern living – without dangerous side effects.
Hello? Yes Please.
I have to say I love this tea. It became my evening ritual to stop working, make a cup & meditate to transition to evening as an end to my work day. When you work for yourself and are often isolated, rituals like this come in handy and having a new tea specifically for this reason made it an easy ritual to keep. A few days after I started drinking it, a friend called me to chat and was feeling stressed, overwhelmed, and anxious. We talked about how she could cope with everything, I tried to be a good friend, and then later in the week, I dropped of a few packets of the tea for her to try. Her response "Thank You. I love this... it's perfect. Just what I needed."
The flavor reminds me of a subtle green tea; lovely & calming are the words that come to mind. I finished the box pretty quickly and just placed an order for another two boxes (Free shipping on their website? Score!) I should note that I've never bought tea online until now. I live very close to Fairway, Trader Joe's & gazillion gourmet food stores packed with tea... but I love this tea. As I head into holiday season and business is crazier than before, I'll be drinking it nightly to help keep me calm and focused.
Have you tried Infuse Your Mood tea? Do you love it as much as I do? Any evening rituals or methods you use to transition from your work day to evening? I'd love to hear any ideas so leave some ink & tell me about them :)
