Thumbs up!"This is one of the best herbals to meet my taste buds in some time. I love citrusy blends and think that mint is good in just about everything--not to mention it settles your tummy and freshens your breath."

I have to say that this smells amazing! I am probably stupid to be drinking something called Rejuvenate at 10:30 at night when I have an appt with a trainer at the gym at 9:00 in the morning, but the smell of this just caught my attention and I had to have some. Now. Rejuvenate Tea contains: Fo-Ti, Eleuthero, Orange Peel, Lemon Peel, Lemon Grass, Peppermint, Lemon Balm, and a special blend of natural plant extracts for flavor. Somehow the dry herbs smell like orange juice and sunshine--if you believe that sunshine has aroma!

I was a little curious about Fo-Ti and Eleuthero so I googled them:
Turns out that Fo-Ti is called He shou wu, which means "black-haired Mr. He" in Chinese. This name refers to a legend of an older villager named Mr. He who took fo-ti and restored his black hair, youthful appearance and vitality. In Chinese medicine, Fo-Ti is a longevity tonic that is used for greying hair, premature aging, weakness, vaginal discharge, and erectile dysfunction. Red Fo-Ti is considered a tonic to increase vitality and energy, strengthen the blood, kidneys and liver. White Fo-Ti is used for constipation. Hmmm...well I don't know which Fo-Ti this is, but ok.
Eleuthero is thought to be an adaptogen, or a substance that adapts itself to correct whatever is out of balance in the body.

The aroma of the wet herbs provides a slightly more subdued citrus than the dry. It smells wonderful and you notice the mint a little more in the wet aroma. Now, for the taste...drum roll....I am a fan of the taste! Rejuvenate is a nice balance of citrus (more orange than lemon) with a touch of peppermint. Half way through the cup, I added a little rock can sugar and found it quite good, but honestly, this needs no sweetener. From a taste perspective, I don't think that Fo-Ti or eleuthero offer much to the blend--which is likely a good thing. To recap, primary taste is citrus erring on the orange side more than the lemon, and secondary taste is peppermint.

This is one of the best herbals to meet my taste buds in some time. I love citrusy blends and think that mint is good in just about everything--not to mention it settles your tummy and freshens your breath. Further, I could stand a script for some eleuthero lol! Overall, if you like citrus and mint blends, this is definitely worth your consideration.
