Pros:Health benefits, great taste for a detox tea

Cons:Price, not sure how much health benefits I am getting

The Bottom Line: This is a tasty tea for being a detox tea. A pleasant brew for getting some health benefits on the side!


I wasn't aware that Celestial Seasonings had a line of "wellness" teas until only recently, when I saw their small boxes of healthy teas, I definitely wanted to try some.

Detox A.M. helps cleanse your body of the daily toxins we all encounter, like smoke, food additives, caffeine and alcohol.* Milk thistle, an antioxidant, supports the production and regeneration of liver cells.* In Detox A.M. it is combined with dandelion root, sarsaparilla root, echinacea and red clover to create a tea that boosts your body's natural defenses and supports the healthy function of your liver, one of the most important organs for maintaining good health.* Detox A.M. has a satisfying vanilla flavor that makes it a perfect way to feel refreshed


Celestial Seasonings Detox A.M. Tea

I hadn't ever seen this tea at the grocery store before, unlike the rest of Celestial Seasoning's teas. The first time I saw this tea was at the grocery store. Instead of the usual box of 20 tea bags, this is a square box with only 10 tea bags (the size of the box is what actually caught my eye). I believe this cost about $4.49. The bags come loose in the box, which has a waxy liner that reseals to keep the tea fresh.


Ingredients

Milk thistle, dandelion, echinacea, red clover, Roasted barley malt, licorice root, roasted chicory root, sarsaparilla root, and natural flavors.


My Thoughts

The directions on the box call for steeping this tea for 6 minutes! I just leave the tea bag in the cup the whole time I drink this tea anyway.

This tea brews a deep amber color. The aroma of this tea is interesting. I would say it has a vanilla, honey, chamomile scent.

The taste of this tea is surprisingly good for a detox tea - something I certainly wasn't expecting. Most teas I have had that are specifically for health benefits (colds, immunity, detox, etc) all taste pretty unpleasant, to be honest. Some to the point where I am choking down the tea.

This tea, on the other hand, is one that I probably wouldn't even guess that it is a "health benefit" tea. I would say not only is the aroma pleasant, but it also has a honey-vanilla-chamomile kind of taste. There are some very light undertones of "something else", but nothing I can put my finger on. The funny thing is, looking at the ingredients, I don't even see ingredients that I would say describe the taste at all (any of the honey, vanilla, or chamomile tastes). Since this is supposed to have a vanilla flavor but vanilla isn't even listed in the ingredients, I suppose most of what I taste falls into what are listed as "natural flavors".

That has been one of my gripes about Celestial Seasonings products - is that the flavors are vague, mixed, and often I am left wondering what the "natural flavors" are.

As for the efficacy of this product - I have no idea. The main ingredients listed are good for cleansing. I don't feel any effects of this tea, but most of the time with health teas, I have no idea if they are working.


Overall

I am going to give this tea 4 stars. The taste is great for a detox tea. And although I am not sure if I am getting any particular benefits, I am sure the ingredients offer some kind of health benefit, even if minor.
