Personally, I had never tried rice tea before, but, I jumped at the chance when the wonderful folks at Karma Kisses Tea House offered me a chance! These are the 3 teas I tried:
Silky Skin Rice Tea: From high in the Tibetan Himalayas, where time is still being born, comes Sea Buckthorn. Not to be confused with common buckthorn, this is one of the most nutritious fruits on the planet. Combined with organic rice, it delivers unique nutrients to nourish the skin, hair and nails. The precious fruit oils found in Sea Buckthorn, including Omegas 3, 6, and 9, and the elusive essential fatty acid, Omega-7… Silky Skin Rice Tea is a powerful beverage for your healthy youthful glow.
Sweet Peace Rice Tea: Flow away from the daily stresses of life and take a deep breath to release your tensions… Enjoy the calming, magical power of the Irish Sea. The precious, organic Irish red seaweed combines with organic rice to relax the mind and stay the troubles of the soul. It helps promote a restful state of peace with all the natural seaweed minerals and fruit nutrients found in abundance beneath the water.
Yummy Young Rice Tea: Apple blossoms in the spring… A sweet lively awakening… Yummy Young Rice Tea releases the goodness of organic rice, apple and a combination of fruit and berry extracts into your cup. It delivers a potent dose of antioxidants, a powerful blend to repair and defend your body — to help you fight the daily stresses of aging.
I have to admit Rice Tea is definitely an acquired taste, not to mention preparation. Karma Kisses comes in a powder, not a bag. You prepare it with warm NOT hot water because you don’t want to destroy all the nutrients.
Specially formulated to pack all the precious goodness from nature’s bounty, Karma Kisses Rice Teas deliver health and beauty in a cup. Experience the soft countryside breeze and the pure trickling water captured specially for you in a simple cup of tea. Karma Kisses Rice Teas are made with certified 100% Organic whole grain brown rice from the beautiful “Float Pond” Township, Taitung County of the island of Taiwan, where the clear sky seems to melt into the water, as if paradise were being created for the very first time. Back in the age of Japanese colonization (1895-1945), “Float Pond” rice was specially selected and reserved as tribute to offer the Japanese Emperor. This prized grain has since been called “Emperor’s Rice.” Now we offer to you this precious gift to enjoy in the comfort of your own home.
This is definitely an acquired taste, the rice teas are really sweet. The first cup I had a hard time drinking the entire cup, I don’t add sweetner to my drinks, so that was a big difference for me. **Karma Kisses Rice Tea’s don’t use sugar!! I want to be clear about that, the sweetness comes from an all natural sweet leaf. Buy the 4th cup I’m more accustom to the taste. HOLD the phone!! Then I found out I can add a packet of Karma Kisses Rice Tea into my morning smoothie!! I don’t need a lot of sweet fruit because the rice tea has enough for me!! I am not loosing any of the benefits. I found out I can add to milk, a Popsicle, shake! WOW!!! I have officially acquired a taste for my Karma Kisses Sweet Rice Tea!! Smoothies for me!!! WOW!! Who knew this stuff was so versatile!?!? Each box of Karma Kisses Rice Tea has 10 sachets. Each of the sachets makes an 8 to 10 once tea. You can add more water if you want. It can be served cold as well, yes, even over ice, without loosing any benefits.
I really like the benefits, for instance, the Sweet Sleep Rice Tea is great for a real natural sleep with no chemicals. Sweet Peace, calms me down and gets me more focused for my day. Silky Skin? Well, hello…… don’t we all want that?!?!
My good friend Almiranda is in her 60’s but could easily pass for early 40’s, she swears that it’s the Rice Tea that makes all the difference. So, yes, I’ll keep drinking my Karma Kisses Rice Teas!! I want to pass for 40’s too!!
The awesome folks over at Karma Kisses are giving 3 Peanut Butter and Whine Followers 1 box of Rice Tea to try for themselves!!
