Buddha Teas – Zen Cleanse Blend

Screen Shot 2015-08-21 at 11.15.34 AMA few weeks back I was approached by Buddha Teas to try their product and give an honest review. I was a little apprehensive because I am really brutally honest and I didn’t want them to be disappointed if I didn’t like the tea. I’m a tea snob so I felt like it could be a recipe for disaster, but I eventually accepted their proposal. I will just say, I have zero regrets. I got to go pick whichever tea I wanted, that was probably the best part. Their website has such a wide selection that I wasn’t sure I’d ever make up my mind, but I eventually settled on the Zen Cleanse Blend (http://www.buddhateas.com/zen-cleanse-blend.html)

Their teas are super affordable so I was going to buy it myself, but they told me it was on them! Yay! So I waited and waited for that tea to arrive, when it did, it did not disappoint. The packaging is actually quite nice for being as simplistic as it is.

The teabags are all bleach free and the packaging is eco-friendly! In addition to that, the teas themselves are all organic. No artificial flavours, colors, or preservatives. No GMO’s. NO MSG, and they’re 100% Kosher. These guys know their stuff!

So, I wanted to wait and use it when I was done smoking, because I felt like using a cleansing tea while putting toxins into your body on the daily is a little counterproductive. I quit a few days ago and on the first day completely smoke free, I enjoyed my first cup of Zen Cleanse Blend. Oh, my, gosh! First impressions? It smelled really nice, it has some obvious minty notes and despite not containing any citrus, it has a citrus scent. Could just be the ginger root? Who knows. Anyway the tea tastes fantastic. There’s this really strong flavour that usually I only get with loose leaf teas. I was pretty surprised to have such natural, flavourful tea, from a tea-bag! Even though the tea is decaf, I really felt a burst of energy after drinking it and I could feel it detoxing my body. I had some mild stomach cramps but I know that was the tea doing it’s job. I’ve had a cup or two every day since and my body feels amazing after I have a cup. I feel warm and fuzzy from the inside out, just very relaxed, but with the energy i’d have from drinking coffee. It’s the weirdest thing. I’m also down 2lbs and have only been drinking it for a few days. It’s not intended to make you lose weight but with it cleaning out my system, I am removing a lot of poison and toxins, making my metabolism quicker. 🙂 Oh and back to the packaging, They have little motivational quotes on every tea-tag! I squealed. The cup I’m drinking right now says “Laugh at your mistakes”. 🙂 I just thought that was such a sweet little touch, as if the tea isn’t enough of a pick-me-up, my tea is giving me advice to improve my life, what even!

Anyway, I’m sold. I will definitely be rebuying this tea and hopefully trying more in the future. I’m not one to falsely advertise something, I even got my husband to try it and back me up (he loved it too!)

So if you’re looking for delicious, affordable, healthy teas, check them out. 😉

When in doubt, bath it out.

Woah look! I’m still here. I’ve been very preoccupied with my current escapades, as usual. I am one of those people who changes hobbies more than I shower. In the blink of an eye I could go from hardcore knitting queen to a spanish speaking artist to sitting at a desk sewing clothing designs. I always seek to develop new interests, things that make me happy and there is nothing wrong with that! I find as I get older I care less about what people think of me and more about just doing what I love and it turns out that I really love a lot of things. I feel like I have learned and retained so much more since I was 18 than I ever did in School (Probably not but that’s certainly how it seems.)

So anyway, I’ve been really enjoying painting (still) and that’s where my attention has been for the last little while. But I actually wanted to talk about things that make me calm, my happy place. I love sitting in my bedroom (when it’s clean, that’s the best lol) and painting on a nice fresh canvas. The best times are when my husband is laying in bed on his laptop. Even though we’re not talking, his presence is comforting. Then when I finish up for the night, I love to hop into a hot bath with some epsom salts or a bath bomb and wash the paint from my nails. I feel like acrylic paint never completely comes off but somehow I love that. It makes me feel artsy. While I’m bathing I love to close my eyes and meditate. Sometimes I like to day dream and imagine myself and my kids in some beautiful place far from here, with gorgeous mountains and a light breeze, it’s pretty cheesy to be honest but that.. that is my happy place and I try to go there as often as possible to keep myself stress free and happy! What is your happy place?
