I’d Buy It Again: Sea Buckthorn Happy Tea

Happy Tea Beauty Product Review

In our line of work, we try a lot of products: that means we know what we love, and why. “I’d Buy It Again” is a quick and dirty way to tell you about something we’ve tried and all the reasons why we like it. These are never sponsored posts—only opinions inspired by our obsessions.

WHAT’S THE BOTTOM LINE?

It’s a delicious, organic, antioxidant-packed tea you can drink hot or iced. It’s caffeine free, it’s known to be a mood lifter, and has great health and beauty benefits to boot.

WHAT IS IT?

A buckthorn leaf tea from myhavtorn. It’s massively anti-inflammatory—it’s even used to treat arthritis. It’s known to provide immune system support as well. And it’s filled with antioxidants (providing levels similar to those of green tea) and lofty amounts of minerals like calcium, magnesium, potassium and zinc, making it an excellent daily health booster. The extra bonus? That mood-lifting magic.

WHO IS IT FOR?

Anyone who loves to drink tea.

WHAT’S THE STORY?

It’s a family-made tea from a farm in Sweden’s Bollebygd Valley. The leaves are picked by hand. The tea leaves are rinsed in cold water from the family’s mineral spring, then they are dried and rolled to start the fermentation process (when the tea reacts with the air).

INGREDIENTS?

Sea buckthorn leaves, organically grown. That’s it. They have loads of antioxidants and hard-to-come-by minerals.

HOW DOES IT SMELL?

Soothing.

HOW DO YOU USE IT?

Drink the tea hot or iced. Both work great.

HOW LONG DID I TEST IT FOR?

A month.

HOW MUCH IS IT? 

$39.00

WHERE CAN I BUY IT?

Ayla Beauty.

WORKS WELL WITH?

Bedtime. Since it’s caffeine free, it’s nice to drink before bed.

WHAT’S GOOD ABOUT IT?

I love to drink tea, and I love to drink tea with extra beauty and wellness benefits. I don’t like to drink green tea because of the caffeine; it sometimes it upsets my stomach.

DRAWBACKS?

It’s a bit more pricey than my normal tea. For that reason I don’t drink it everyday. But I do mix it in to my tea regimen.

WOULD I BUY THIS AGAIN?

Yes.
