Tea-sty Tuesday: Peach DeTox

Yogi Peach DeTox: Good for the Bodypeachtea

Part of my resolution since about 2009 has been to live more healthy.  It’s a resolution that I have struggled with for a number of reasons, but I am slowly starting to make small changes.  One of the places this has lead me is studying the medicinal values of herbs and other ingredients.

Now I know how that sounds… and yes, I still go the doctor.  I’m not attending sweat lodges or trying leeches (which I hear some doctors are actually trying again…)  It’s just modern science is finding that there is soemthing behind some of the ancient world’s medicinal remedies.  Peppermint does help with a tummy ache (as does turmeric.)  Willow bark soup was used by Native American tribes for pain…turns out when heated, chemicals in willow bark have the some composition as aspirin.

So, it’s not all hocus pocus.  One of my big areas of concern has been taking care of the parts of my body that take care of me, such as my immune system, my liver and my kidneys.  So, when I saw

Yogi Peach DeTox, I figured I had to try it.

Yogi Peach DeTox’s Ingredients

I said it last week, I’ll say it again.  Yogi…thank you for making tea out of things I feel good about drinking.  Yogi’s teas are made from ingredients that have been certified organic and the only thing in them is tea and flavorings.  Nothing weird.

For Yogi Peach DeTox, Yogi blended a trio of DeToxing ingredients: trikatu (a blend of ginger, black pepper, and long pepper), Organic dandelion leaf, and fo-ti, a Chinese herb.  And some peach, for it’s fruity flavor.

Yogi Peach DeTox’s Aroma

Of all the Yogi teas, this one has the most pleasing aroma.  The scent is very mild, but it is definitely has its soft, creamy peach notes.  I rather enjoy it, even though I wish it was much stronger.  (Maybe I’ll try Yogi Rooibos Sweet Peach.)

Yogi Peach DeTox’s Taste

Well, it’s good for me.  Can I start there?

Yogi Peach DeTox starts off with a nice bouqet of peach.  Really pleasant, sweet without needing sweetner, just a nice peach flavor.  Then you start to swallow and all of the sudden it’s like… “There it is…Okay,  now I know I’m drinking something good form me…”

It’s almost a tale of two teas and I wish it was a tale of one.  I wish I could have all that peach taste and none of the medicinal aftertaste.  But alas, I cannot.

Still, it’s not like the medicinal taste is horribly unpleasant.  It’s just very noticeable on the first drink.

Yogi Peach DeTox’s Effects

It’s hard to say.  Maybe I could have taken a test of some sort to gauge whether my liver and kidneys were working better or not.  (Maybe they need to add asparagus extract to the tea.  That would be a sure sign something was up.)  If anyone knows a test you can take to see whether a detox is working short of getting blood drawn, let me know.

Yogi Peach DeTox’s Overall

All in all, I drink Peach DeTox for the little bit of peach and the hope I am doing my body good.  In fact, I try to drink it every time I’ve over indulged the night before.

Still, overall, I give this tea 2 cups out of five.  As a detox agent, I’d like to think it’s working.  As a taste experience, I’d rather try a different tea.
