I hope you all had a marvelous Labor Day weekend. I quite enjoyed my long weekend. After my shopping spree on Sunday, I was able to contain myself come Monday and I actually hardly left my house, which is extremely unusual because I always feel like I’m boxed up if I don’t leave my house multiple times a day. However, yesterday I only left my house once to go to the gym.
I did this GPP WOD and then came home and cleaned for the remaining of the day. Except for when I took a two hour break to Skype Stephanie, which was oh so necessary. It’s unbelievable that I’ve never met her in real life before, but it’s like we are sisters and it’s always felt that way. She’s an angel and I’m so blessed to have her in my life!
Seeing as how yesterday was one of those cozy days at home filled with cleaning, a lot of tea was consumed, which got me thinking about something that I’ve wanted to start for quite some time now… a series of tea review posts.
Of course, most of these will involve reviews of teas from DAVIDsTEA because it’s my absolute favourite brand when it comes to tea, but I’m always testing out different types of teas, so let’s call Tuesday’s on A Dash of Meg “Tea Tuesday” and see where it takes us!
I was really excited to try this particular tea because it’s one of the few teas from DAVIDsTEA to contain pistachios.
It also contains mulberry leaf, chamomile, natural cream, macadamia and pistachio flavouring.
I love the fact that this tea is caffeine free because I can drink it in the evening right before bed and, trust me, this is the perfect tea to have right before bed. It’s creamy, yet sweet, and has the slightest nutty flavour. Personally, I find the most prominent flavour to be the sweetness from the mulberry leaves and pistachios, but the tea only becomes creamier the longer you let it steep. So, I prefer to leave my bag in my mug the entire time.
As a nutritionist and aspiring Registered Holistic Nutritionist, I am trying to incorporate more “nutrition” in my posts, so, with having said that, the following are health benefits of the mulberry leaf:
- Balances Blood Sugar and Aids in Carbohydrate Absorption (therefore the mulberry leaf has been used as a remedy for type two diabetes)
- Liver and Lung Remedy (the mulberry leaf has been used as a cooling remedy for fever, sore throat, and cough)
So, next time you’re in DAVIDsTEA order yourself some Pistachio Cream tea, leave the bag in the entire time, and enjoy the sweet creamy caffeine free tea from their new Fall Collection
But, if you don’t have a DAVIDsTEA near you, I still highly suggest that you try this tea. So, order it online
Have you tried Pistachio Cream yet? What do you think of the Tea Tuesday series? Did you enjoy today’s review?
