PositiviTea | Review

PositiviTea

I’m just gonna start by saying that this is the most excited I’ve been in my short blogging history about a product pitch. I’m essentially biologically programmed to be a total hippie; it’s in my genes, which means that I go pretty wild for yoga-related anything (despite not doing enough of it myself, I’m up to one short practise a week, I will get better!). So to hear that there’s a brand of good quality herbal tea that has been.. drumroll please.. inspired by chakras, pretty much blew my mind.

So, the deal is; Ellie Wharton (founder and creator of Positivitea) is a yogaΒ practitioner, teacher and writer and developed these teas after being inspired by her own yoga journey. There are 7 flavours (one for each chakra), each specifically blended with spiritual balance in mind. In this post I’ll tell you all about the 2 blends I tried.

Sacral/Create

Positivitea Review

The Tea

Rooibos, Cocoa & Vanilla with Ginseng

I’m usually not huge on the taste of rooibos, it smells like tobacco when it’s brewing and just tastes unfantastic as far as I’m concerned. But in this tea it totally worked, the flavour is really subtle and goes hand in hand beautifully with the vanilla, I was so pleasantly surprised by how much I loved this blend!

The Chakra

The sacral chakra is all about creativity and fertility, located around the reproductive organ region. Hip opening poses are ideal for awakening the sacral chakra, check out this great blog post for guidance.

Third Eye/Imagine

Positivitea Review

The Tea

White tea, Elderflower & Blueberry with Eyebright

Definitely my favourite of the two, the gorgeous scent that wafts through the air as soon as you open the box is in itself a total winner. It smells so wonderful, almost like blueberry muffins without evoking even a tinge of food guilt. I couldn’t quite detect elderflower, but elderflower as I know it is a sickeningly sweet cordial – so I probably wouldn’t know it in a herbal tea if it smacked me in the face.

The Chakra

The third eye chakra is associated with insight and imagination, located around the forehead and eyes (imagine a literal third eye). For more information on the third eye chakra and three asanas for balancing it, check out this blog post.

The verdict

PositiviTea Review

I was fully expecting to love this product and it fully met my expectations, so I’m pleased to report that I’m a big fan of PositiviTea. Admittedly, the cost of a box (Β£5.50 for 15 teabags) is more than I’d expect to pay for standard tea, but it’s not far off the price range for Teapigs and it definitely matches up to them in terms of quality. On top of that, the chakra blend concept is just beyond awesome, this is a must-have for die hard yogis.
