Today’s tea was Purple Acai with blueberry, one of Lipton’s Green Tea Superfruit teas. This is another bagged tea that I’ve had for a while, but I haven’t tried this one before.
This one is green tea, so use one bag per cup and steep in 82°C water for 3-4 minutes.
I’ve kept my diet extra clean for the last couple weeks but this morning after my race I decided to splurge and have breakfast at a local diner. Looking back, it wasn’t the best idea to ‘reward’ my body with unhealthy foods and my body definitely let me know it after I was done :?. Drinking this tea really helped with the bloating and overall ‘meh’ feeling I had for the whole day after eating crap this morning! I could actually feel my stomach settling after the first sip! It was amazing 🙂
This tea definitely had the most fruity smell of all that I’ve so far. It definitely wasn’t unpleasant but it didn’t really make me WANT to drink it either. I guess I prefer the scent of spice in my tea 😉
I almost didn’t drink the acai/blueberry tea because of the blueberry. I actually HATE blueberries in drinks. I straight up failed the last time I tried a blueberry smoothie detox and was never motivated to try again. But surprisingly, I really liked how this tea tasted. I’m not sure if it’s because the blueberry was masked or just that my preferences have changed, but I’ll definitely be having this again!
Blueberries are often used for detoxes and from what I’ve read, the acai berry has a host of health benefits, including weight loss. Supposedly, the combination of the two does some pretty powerful stuff! Like I said before, this tea definitely helped with my bloating today which I guess could be it’s benefits in detoxing, but I don’t have any personal proof of the weight loss…yet!
This may actually become my go-to tea from now on because I really liked the way it made me feel. I guess I was too quick to get rid of the rating scheme because the Purple Acai Berry would have been the highest so far!
Hope you had a great weekend! See you tomorrow for Day 6 of the challenge!
