Drinking From A Tree?

Hey Everyone!

Today I have something very different for you in my Organic September series and it is TreeVitalise Birch Water. You will be amazed when I tell you the process behind this product and a hint to that is in the name but you will have to keep reading to learn the full story.

The Process 

The organic birch water comes from the Carpathian Mountains in Eastern Europe and the mixed forests are what creates their special taste.

In the first weeks of spring thaw, when the snow begins to melt, the roots of the birch tree absorb and take in the newly created water. Enriched with this liquid are all the nutrients stored in the roots over winter that are drawn up to the trunk and branches and what is left is a water that is filtered by the tree and packed with vitality and it wakes the tree from winter season and brings it into life again. 

This happens just a couple of weeks a year and when it occurs the tree is tapped and a small share taken to create these drinks. The birch is completely unharmed and has plenty of revitalising water left for its own use.

The sap is preserved through gentle pasterisation which keeps its original form but is also available infused with organic mint or lemon. What you are left with is an undiluted, organic, 100% natural and unsweetened drink.

The Benefits

Birch sap is known to stimulate the body's purifying and cleansing systems as in its raw form the sap contains vitamins, enzymes, antioxidants, trace minerals such as manganese and also micronutrients which help strengthen your immune system, lower cholesterol and assist in weight loss. 

I was lucky enough to try out all three flavours of the TreeVitalise birch water, being the original*, mint* and lemon*. 

Here is what I thought!

It's difficult to explain the taste of these drinks, I would say that the birch water is sweet but naturally sweet, it doesn't have that harsh bite that artificial ones have. It's a very pleasant and refreshing drink overall, I loved the mint in particular which I found to be very soothing on my throat. All three were very hydrating and made me feel energised on a dull afternoon in the office which has to be a plus. 

For me, the biggest plus is the concept/process behind the product, I just find it fascinating how these drinks have been made and that added to a nice taste is a winner in my book. 

What do you guys think about this product? It's so different and I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments! If you want to read up more on TreeVitalise you can do so on their website: which is also where you can click to find the online/retail stockist information.

Thanks for reading and I hope you are enjoying Organic September.

Love Sally X
