Higher Living Herbal Teas Review

6 July 2013

Herbal teas aren't usually my thing - I much prefer to start my day with a pot of fresh coffee. But with baby on the way I've been trying to find alternative pick-me-ups to my daily cup of Joe. Still, when I was challenged to try out these herbal teas from Higher Living Tea as an alternative to my regular coffee fix, I thought I'd probably be underwhelmed.

We were sent two different boxes of tea to sample - Hibiscus Bliss (which contains hibiscus and lemongrass) and Fab Four, which is a box containing four different varieties of tea  - Evening, Vitality, Very Berry and Ginger Kick. Evening contains lemon balm, fennel, chamomile, peppermint and lavender. Very Berry contains berries, hibiscus, rosehip and apples. Ginger Kick contains ginger and lemon peel, and Vitality contains orange peel, green mate and cinnamon.

To my surprise, they were all delicious. Hibiscus Bliss is a really fresh and zesty alternative to the herbal teas that I've tried in the past, and I developed quite a ritual of reaching for a big mug of Vitality first thing in the morning, and ending the day with a relaxing cup of Evening.

Overall I'd recommend these teas to hardened herbal tea lovers but also to novices like me. They do make a refreshing alternative to coffee and black tea. The packaging is particularly appealing too, which means I'd consider buying a box of Higher Living tea as a token of appreciation for my children's teachers at the end of term, or as a small but thoughtful alternative gift for a friend.

Higher Living are a British company who have been blending teas for over 45 years and are certified organic by the soil association certification. The whole range is brewed and packaged in Gloucestershire where the envelopes, which are fully recyclable, are sealed for freshness without the use of alloy staples. Higher Living herbal teas are available in Asda, Tesco, Holland & Barrett, Planet Organic, Wholefoods, www.higherlivingherbs.com and a range of independent retailers across England and Scotland.
