MY REVIEW BEGINS
Here is what I think
This tea is packed full of 100% natural herbal tea packed full of Anthocyan Antioxidants. Anthocyan’s are are powerful compounds that may help prevent CVD, Cancer and boost cognitive functions. You can check out more facts on your own but I wanted you to know, this is some cool stuff!
What is really fun is the color of this tea, it’s BLUE and I heard a secret that if you add some lemon, it turns pink.. really! J
This tea does not have a lot of flavor; it’s very mild which is great for people that are not ready to try a strong herbal tea. You can add some honey or lemon (do it) and it really gives the tea a nice flavor, however I did enjoy the low flavor tea.
The website tells us that by adding honey and lemon you make a traditional welcome drink named nam dok anchan.
What I liked
Loved the blue/pink “magic” trick with the tea. This could be a fun experiment with the kids/family.
Here is a movie showing the magical color change.
This herbal tea brews fast, I like that, and sometimes you just do not have time to sit around a let a tea brew.
100% natural I love that as well, no fake, no fluff and no additives.
You can drink it hot or cold.
I can’t wait to make ice cubes with it and add it to my water “just for fun”.
What I did not like
I know I said I love the flavor of the tea but if I had to say anything I did not like it would be that some people may not believe or think they are getting something good for them without the flavor.
I can’t dig too much deeper, I honestly don’t have anything negative to say, it’s a great tea.

Until next sip pinkies up and face the wind! You got this!
