Healtheries Green Tea with Mandarin & Lime Flowers

I love to col­lect things with pretty pack­aging. I’m the type of per­son who will buy a product in a line just to com­plete her col­lec­tion. The one caveat is that I must reas­on­ably expect to like the product enough to use it.

Healtheries Green Tea with Mandarin & Limeflower is one of those products. It was the one of two teas I needed in their fla­voured green tea line to com­plete my col­lec­tion. The oth­er was Green Tea with Feijoa. I’d tried a fei­joa smooth­ie and thought it tasted inter­est­ing but it wasn’t some­thing I’d search out, so I decided against that. But man­dar­in and lime­flower? I would drink that.

The Healtheries Green Tea with Mandarin & Limeflowers is described as ‘a zesty and refresh­ing tangy green tea per­fect for ener­gising your mind and body’. That descrip­tion is per­fect for what it is. I’m not a huge fan of man­dar­in rind because of its resid­ual bit­ter­ness, but this tea gets rid of that com­pletely. Green tea’s usu­ally good for diges­tion, and the man­dar­in and lime­flowers cer­tainly assist that by mak­ing it an ‘ener­gising’ tea that’s per­fect for coun­ter­ing the after lunch com­pul­sion to nap.

As com­pared to my fruit teas, which are inter­est­ing and fun, this green tea with man­dar­in & lime­flowers is more of a tea that I’d drink with the spe­cif­ic pur­pose of ‘ener­gising’ myself.

This box of Healtheries Green Tea with Mandarin & Lime Flowers con­tained 20 tea bags. It was packed in New Zealand and pur­chased in Auckland, New Zealand in 2014.
