Thumbs up!"A complex and tasty array of flowery, citrus and earthy notes in this blend make it seem much more like an herbal tea than a green tea."

yogi-green-tea-active-body.gifFrom the manufacturer's web site:

"Keep yourself at peak performance with a cup of Green Tea Active Body. This unique blend starts with soothing and detoxifying tumeric. We add devil's claw and yucca to help decrease recovery time from pain that may result from exercise. What's more, green tea provides a free-radical fighting boost while ginseng helps you reenergize. No need to wait. Get invigorated, get energized, and get active!"

Obviously, from that description and the name alone, its clear that this company is marketing this tea more for its health effects than for its taste. That's fine, and I know there is a large market out there full of folks who drink tea more for health-reasons than for pleasure. But not me. I drink tea because I love tea. So health-benefits be damned, I'm in it for the taste.

And surprise, surprise - Yogi delivers! The green tea base used in this blend is pretty run-of-the-mill, but it forms a nice base for a fairly complex array of flavors: flowery from the lotus and rose petals, the barest hint of tangy bite from the lemongrass, and a pleasant earthy background from the myriad other herbal ingredients that make up this blend. Really, this tastes much more like an herbal tea than it does a green-tea infusion.

Granted, green tea afficinados aren't going to be bowled over by this blend, but those health-nuts amongst us who are looking for a "green tea" that doesn't taste just like plain green tea might find this to their liking.
