Why We Love It: This tea has the perfect balance of sweetness from the fruit and depth from the tea. As soon as you take a sip, you can taste the quality of the ingredients, and we love that it’s organic as well. The first ingredient in this tea is organic schisandra berry, which is is used as an “adaptogen”, meaning it doesn’t matter whether you’re too sleepy or too nervous; either way, schizandra will redirect you from an extreme to an ideal, balanced state. It is also known to have many other health benefits, including increasing resistance to disease and stress, increasing energy, and increasing physical performance and endurance. The oolong tea used has a flavor that is on the lighter side, but you can definitely still taste the toasty flavor. Overall a beautiful balance. In addition to the Plum Oolong, we also tasted the Pumpkin Spice Chai and Earl Grey Creme. Both of these also exhibited the same delicious balance of sweetness and depth, and also tasted lighter on the caffeine front.
