Beauty begins on the inside, which makes our SKIN tea the perfect primer. The zesty blend of Lemongrass and Ginger is complemented by a purifying punch of Peppermint. So for a naturally healthy glow, and to sustain your internal vigor, sip BBTC SKIN.
OK, I admit it. Herbal blends scare me. Just a little bit. They do!
That’s because even with the finest ingredients, herbal tisanes can go wrong. They can taste medicine-y. Or they can just have some funky off-putting taste. So, needless to say, I was scared to try this blend from Byron Bay Tea Company.
But, this tastes really terrific! If this is a skin regime, count me in! I would be happy to drink this on a daily basis.
This doesn’t taste medicine-y or otherwise off-putting. The peppermint is strong, but not overpowering… and interestingly enough, this tisane doesn’t come off as “minty” exactly, although it does have a crisp and clean mint aftertaste.
I am also enjoying the way the ginger and lemongrass work together in this blend. The ginger offers just a hint of peppery flavor, while the sweet citrus-y tones of the lemongrass cancel out some of the spicier notes of the ginger. There is also a nice peppery accent in the finish that I find rather enjoyable.
But, I think my favorite part of this blend is the very subtle taste of rose. It is a nice touch. It is so soft and sweet. Very nice, indeed.
None of the flavors here are overwhelming… instead, they are very harmonious with one another. It has a pleasant, well-rounded taste. It is a very soothing, relaxing cup – especially nice at the end of the day!
