Forget the green juices and wheatgrass shots: our new healthy beverage of choice is the humble cup of tea. Except that it’s not so humble any more, what with the blending in of innumerable exotic ingredients – right from acai berries to rosehip chips – in a single cuppa. Case in point: Kusmi’s BB Detox tea, which is inspired by BB Creams and packs a potent skin protecting-moisturising-detoxifying punch with green tea, yerba mate, rooibos and dandelion – all topped off by the subtle taste of grapefruit.
Sounds interesting but I am not sure what makes it different from the other beauty teas out there – there is a brilliant one by Caudalie and another one by Fauchon – which are essentially a blend of green tea’s antioxidant and detoxifying powers, along with the skin boosting prowess of various herbs and botanicals. But then, I never really got the whole concept of BB creams either. Though, in this BB tea’s favour, Kusmi is definitely a terrific brand… it’s been around since 1867 and comes up with exquisitely delicious blends of black teas, green teas and infusions. So, even though its BB Detox Tea seems more like a piggybacking-on-a-popular-trend version of their already famous (and effective) Detox Tea, it’s worth the experience if you have €11.80 to spare for a box of 20 muslin-wrapped sachets.
Your thoughts? Would you try a cup of this grapefruit-flavoured BB tea?
