With the weather unpredictable – 80 degrees one day and 69 degrees the next – I believe my body is totally confused. What makes matters worse is the HVAC system at work or whoever is responsible for maintaining the correct temperature balance within the building. Thus far… it’s not working. I spend all day every day freezing. So to comfort me, I turn to a hot cuppa tea for warmth. Today’s choice? Organic Detox Infusion.
Composition: Organic peppermint, organic burdock root, organic dandelion root, organic spearmint, organic licorice root, organic red clover flowers, basil.
Dry Visual: Very green like fresh cut grass with various flecks of color. As this is loose tea in a silk sachet it is difficult to see more than the green tea leaves. Thanks Mighty Leaf for the picture.
Dry Aroma: Wonderfully minty. I love the smell of mint.
Flavor: This is where Organic Detox Infusion becomes quite interesting. The dominant flavor is mint which happens to be my favorite when drinking herbal teas. However, the finish has more of a vegetal taste. To be clear – not vegetal like green tea, but vegetal nonetheless. I believe it is the basil that provides the vegetal taste along with a hint of clove.
According to Mighty Leaf Tea, licorice is an ingredient in Organic Detox Infusion. Ironically, I do not like licorice flavoring. Thus imagine my surprise when after drinking half the cup, I was unable to detect its presence. Naturally sweet, no sweetener was required.
Organic Detox Infusion brews a good, full-bodied cup of tea. The liquor fills the mouth when drinking.
Liquor: Not quite amber, but a rich reddish brown.
Brewing Time: Recommended brewing time is 5 minutes. I brewed for the recommended 5 minutes.
Manufacturer: Mighty Leaf Tea
