On Monday, Not For Sale had a launch party for their new business venture, REBBL, here in Atlanta. My mum and I got to go and it was fantastic! It was held at the Matchstic office downtown in a beautiful building. Exposed brick, skylights, and windows all over…I was in heaven.
As part of the launch, the Not For Sale team presented the product as well as the process that they’ve gone through in order to make it a reality. At the end, everyone got to sample some of the first bottles of REBBL outside of California. How exciting! The first flavor that they’ve created is Hibiscus Mint and it’s super tasty and refreshing! While REBBL was created in order to provide jobs in the Peruvian Amazon, the goal was also to make a high quality product that people would want to buy because they enjoy it, not just because the money is going to a good cause. They definitely succeeded!
At first sip, the most recognizable taste is that of peppermint and spearmint. The herbal tea flavor that comes next is a combination of mate and guayusa, herbal teas widely used throughout South America that contain a stimulant similar to caffeine minus the jittery aftereffect. The combination of these herbal teas with maca root, cat’s claw, and a handful of other ingredients provides a huge boost of vitamins and antioxidants. What Not For Sale has come up with really is ‘A True Tonic’ and I can’t wait until it’s actually in stores!
