I've been fortunate enough to receive some recent Love Lula Beauty Boxes. If you don't know already, beauty boxes really excite me, especially if I don't know what's hidden inside them. Each Love Lula box comes with a selection of products usually five and you get full size products and travel sizes/samples. Obviously some are better than other (I for example don't really care for Madara products because of the alcohol) but today I wanted to talk about a different beauty product, an internal one.
December's Love Lula box, the Beauty Brews Poise Strawberry & Ginger Organic Tea*. Beauty Brews is dedicated to sourcing the finest organic teas that combine tried and tested ingredients into delicious blends, each with a specific flavour combination to help you enjoy moments of harmony, peace and beauty that help bring mind, body and soul into natural balance.
As a tea-obsessed person and someone who has too many teas at home, I have to say that this is one very delicious blend of herbs and flowers. It's a Rooibos based tea and I love me some rooibos. Quick google search shows many amazing benefits of drinking rooibos which is also known as The Red Bush and is very unlike traditional tea plants. It grows in South Africa and has needle-like leaves similar to pine tree. Although the majority of rooibos tea has deep red colour, the bush isn't actually red. Its leaves are green and through the natural fermentation they become red. Roobios tea is actually a herbal tea because it's caffeine-free, so a great tea for evening time too. The tea is rich in antioxidants, it's consider a good source of minerals like Calcium, Iron, Potassium, Copper, Zinc, and Magnesium. They work together for better absorption - magnesium balances and helps the absorption of calcium, copper balances and helps absorption of zinc. Not only good for the body but also for the skin. Always a plus.
So now that you know a little bit about the magnificent rooibos let me also mention some other ingredients in the tea. There is Ginger, Apple bits, Cinnamon, Raspberry leaves and Strawberry bits, to name a few. It smells Ah-mazing and tastes delicious! All ingredients are from organic sources with the exception of "Natural Flavouring". I don't know what kind of flavouring that is (unfortunately) but the tea has a berry flavour. It's a very yummy tea and I love drinking it. Here is their selection of teas they have, I really wouldn't mind having one or five more.
Any other tea lovers out there?
Have a great end of the week!
