Dr Red Nutraceuticals is a Queensland company headed by Biochemist, Greg Jardine. The company sells wines, punch and teas that are supposed to be filled with antioxidants and other things that are good for your body. The MP Tea Lemon Lime is one of their products.
The idea behind the products is the the MP Technology helps enhance the already powerful benefits found in things like red wine, ginger, or even tea.
It took me a while to get used to the tea at first. It's a black tea that is best taken without sugar or milk. The lemon and lime can be quite strong at first, but after a few cups I got used to it and quite enjoyed the tea. You use a tea strainer, fill with boiled water (as with most teas, it's best to have the water a little cooler when you pour it in), steep for a few minutes, and then drink everything including the sediment at the bottom.
My main problem was that I just couldn't find a good tea strainer. They all seemed to have gaps in them, and this meant the bottom of my cup was always filled with a few--and sometimes a lot more than a few--tea leaves. This is a little undesirable when you're expected to completely drain your cup. With a good tea strainer, it wouldn't be a problem.
When I first started drinking the tea I was getting a lot of headaches and also a bit of nausea. I found a cup of the tea would not only help with the headaches, but also helped stop the nausea. It's obviously impossible to say whether this is a direct result of the tea, a coincidence, or a case of the placebo effect, but I definitely didn't feel any ill effects drinking the tea.
I tend to be very sceptical about products that offer miracle treatments, but I genuinely felt that the MP Tea was helping with a few of my ailments. Plus, I love the packaging; it's superficial, but good packaging always has the ability to suck me in.
Dr Red: MP Tea Lemon Lime can be bought from the Mt Nebo Cellar Door in Queensland, but they're also stocked throughout various pharmacies and health food stores in Australia and New Zealand. You can find a full list of stockists on their website.
