It’s around this time of year that we all feel a little sluggish after indulging too much over the holiday period. Many of us will put off our New Year’s resolution of joining a gym, or sneak chocolate back into our diets even though we said we’d quit (guilty).
But there is one thing you can do (without much effort) to get your detox going: drink tea. No, not your usual English Breakfast with a dash of milk and two sugars, I’m talking about Edible Beauty’s No.1 Green Goddess Detox Tea. You can manage a cup of tea each night, can’t you?
How Does This Tea Work?The title of the tea is a bit of a give away here - it's a herbal blend of green tea which also features super ingredients St Mary’s Thistle and Dandelion Root. This unique concoction has been specifically designed for detoxing the body. Oh, but wait - if detoxing isn't your focus right now, there's nine other teas in Edible Beauty's range, too (check them out here).
Green tea is rich in catechin antioxidants (EGCG)
These antioxidants can ramp up the body’s metabolism & assist in weight loss
Green tea can also help improve cardiovascular health & reduce the risk of cancer
This blend assists & enhances the function of the kidneys & liver
Helps to flush out toxins, repair liver cells & protect it from future damage
Contains ginger which is a great digestive aid
Lemongrass & ginger provide this tea with a refreshing & uplifting flavour
This blend also contains small bits of apple, lemon peel & spearmint
No.1 Green Goddess Detox Tea is available in loose leaf form
More About The Key Ingredients:St Mary’s Thistle: unique in its ability to protect the liver. The compounds in this ingredient work together to support healthy liver function, while aiding in the elimination of toxin accumulation in the liver and in the support of hormonal processes in the body.
Schizandra: known as one of the most powerful “youth tonics” of all time. Prized by Asian cultures for its ability to enhance youthfulness, increase stamina and prevent fatigue. Schizandra fruits or berries contain compounds that enhance the immune system, protect the liver and improve the body’s ability to handle stress.
Dandelion Root: has been shown to improve liver function by removing toxins, re-hydrating and re-establishing the body’s electrolyte balance. The herb also acts as a diuretic, assisting the kidneys in clearing out waste, salt and excess water. The dandelion plant is rich in antioxidants that may prevent free-radical damage to cells.
How To Brew It:I realised recently that I've been making tea wrong my whole life. Apparently you're meant to brew different teas at different temperatures? Am I the only person who didn't know this?
Anyway, this is a green tea blend (apparently it’s best to brew this tea at 80°C), so add 1 teaspoon of loose leaf tea to your mug and combine 20% cold water with 80% boiling water, allowing it to infuse for around 5 minutes before sitting back and relaxing.
