Protein Tea Review: Introducing Blu-Dot Protein Tea – the world’s first green tea fortified with 10 grams of protein and 5 grams of fibre. Blu-Dot protein tea is designed as a “recovery” beverage for after exercise.
I was given one bottle of Blu-Dot Protein Tea to try and share on social media (if I liked it). Now I don’t normally go as far as writing a whole blog post about a product that I received to try, however I liked this so much that I just couldn’t wait to share it with you. To be clear here, this is NOT a sponsored post, it really is THAT GOOD!
Blu-Dot Protein Tea is designed to be an after-exercise recovery drink. It replaces lost fluids and contributes critical nutrients to repair muscle and aid in optimal body function. Just one bottle of Blu-Dot Protein Tea has as much protein as a scrambled egg (10 g) and as much fibre (5 g) as an apple. All for only 90 calories, and in four great-tasting superfruit flavours:
I tried the Cherry Mango and it was delicious! It wasn’t too sweet, and it wasn’t gritty. It tasted more like a vitamin water than juice which I really liked because I’m not really into sweet juices, especially after a hard workout session. I tried it as a recovery drink after running on the treadmill and doing a kettlebell workout at the gym. It was so good that I pretty much inhaled it, though I did manage to save some for my daughters to try because I wanted their opinion too. All three of them loved it!
Blu-Dot protein tea is made with high purity whey powder sourced from new Zealand and plant-based prebiotic fibre. It’s all-natural, gluten free, Non-GMO and has only 6 grams of sugar. Compared with most other protein drinks, ready-to-drink Blu-Dot protein tea is light and refreshing, not heavy, calorific or gloopy. The ingredients are rather simple:
Most protein recovery drinks I’ve tried have a creamy base which I find rather heavy and hard on my stomach after an intense run or workout. I liked that Blu-Dot Protein Tea is much lighter in texture (viscosity?) than a protein shake. I found that it was also much more hydrating than a traditional recovery drink and I could see myself drinking this more often.
What I didn’t like is that it comes in a glass bottle, I understand that’s more sustainable and kinder for the environment, however I could easily see myself throwing it in my gym bag then carelessly slinging my bag around and somehow breaking it. I would need to transfer it to a safer container to carry with me. If you workout on your lunches like me you could probably store a case in the office fridge or at your desk.
It would be very hydrating after a morning run along with peanut butter banana overnight oats – how’s that for the total recovery package!
