What do you do when you want to focus on yourself and unwind? Relax watching a movie or reading a book? Take a long walk? Or do you enjoy a cup of your favourite tea? If drinking tea is what helps you relax, Tealyra has a perfect tea blend – Focus on Yourself.
What is Focus on Yourself?
Focus on Yourself is anything but a simple green tea blend. It's a blend that you can explore over and over again and still be impressed with just how unique it is. Focus on Yourself is blended with 10 different ingredients, and some of them are rarely used with green tea. There's a light but deep green tea base, whole unroasted green coffee beans, apple pieces, chokeberries, cinnamon, ginkgo, sunflower petals, cornflower petals and ylang-ylang flavouring – the most unusual flavour for a green tea blend. Focus on Yourself smells not only delicious, it looks incredibly pretty too.
What makes this wellness tea blend so special?
Many things make this wellness tea so special – from the combination of ingredients to unique flavours and incredible gentleness.
So, let's start with the first ingredient – green tea. Green tea in this blend is not a strong and bitter type. It's light but deep and strong enough to carry all the ingredients, but light enough to offer refreshment with zero bitterness. Green tea is one of the healthiest tea options because it contains high amounts of EGCG, a catechin responsible for many tea benefits, including boosting immunity. This catechin is more abundant in green tea than in black tea.
Another interesting ingredient in this blend is green coffee beans. Green coffee beans are regular coffee beans that haven't been roasted and may have a potential use in weight management. (1) And finally, there are gingko and chokeberries. Chokeberries or aronia berries have been significantly gaining in popularity because of their potential antioxidant properties (2). They have a tart flavour, look similar to elderberries, and are often used for making syrups and wine.
And finally, there's a ylang-ylang flavouring that gives this blend a divine scent. Ylang-ylang essential oil is popular in aromatherapy and perfume making, but rarely used as a flavouring for tea. Not only it has a beautiful scent, but studies also suggest it may have a potential to help with depression and anxiety (3).
This tea contains ingredients that are commonly not blended together, so don't expect a scent that's like anything you've tried before. Focus on Yourself smells incredibly delicious, fresh and inviting. It's deep and sweet, with light herbal notes, finished with a flowery ylang-ylang.
What does Focus on Yourself taste like?
Focus on Yourself is a green tea blend, so steep it with a slightly cooler water at around 80 degrees Celsius for 3 minutes. It brews into a pale-yellow tea, with a beautiful light scent and flavour. There are absolutely no traces of bitterness or astringency, just a mellow light green tea layered with floral, vegetal and fruity notes.
This tea would be a wonderful choice for both tea beginners and tea connoisseurs. It's light and refreshing, but with a deep and warm soul. When you need a hug in a cup and some quiet me time, Focus on Yourself is a perfect wellbeing blend to enjoy. This tea would be great for cold brewing too, and it's best served with no condiments.
