Smooth, sweet fresh watermelon bites fill the cup. Light cucumber finish. Very nice tea, not heavy.
The equilateral triangle is an exceptional geometrical shape. Supported by three equal sides it offers support and strength in perfect symmetry. Why are we talking about triangles? We'd like to draw a parallel with Cucumber Melon Green Tea. In a similar way, this blend of green tea, cucumber slices and melon flavouring offers three supportive sides: multiple health benefits, high thirst-quenching ability, exceptional flavour. Let's explore them:
Health Benefits: known to contain elements such as lariciresinol, pinoresinol, and secoisolariciresinol, cucumbers are reputed to help reduce cardiovascular disease in addition to several cancer types including breast, uterine, ovarian and prostate. Research has also shown that cucumbers offer anti-inflammatory properties, which may make it helpful in fighting arthritis.
Thirst-Quenching Ability: unlike other beverages like soft drinks and coffee, green tea is known to quench the thirst, similar to water. Add in the light vegetal notes of cucumber, and you're primed for hydration.
Exceptional Flavour: speaking of the vegetal notes of cucumber, we've also added in some natural watermelon flavour. Together, these create an exceptionally light cup with sweet, fresh melon notes, and cucumber on the finish.
