Product Review: A Sparkling Drink With Purple Tea Leaves Sourced From 4,500 to 7,500 Feet Above Sea Level

Alpine slimming tea formula with purple tea leaves.

The Alpine Bliss Sliming Tea drink in front of my inversion table at home.


If there’s one thing I enjoy in life more than any other in terms of food and drink, it’s a can, or glass, of a delicious, unique and healthy sparkling beverage.

Sodas, soft drinks and other carbonated beverages offer health benefits that aren’t widely discussed but simply put, there is a reason why people seem to crave them more than any other type of drink.

I recently had the opportunity to try a wholly unique sparkling beverage from a company called Alpine Bliss, shown in the picture above. I loved everything about it except for one ingredient which I am not a fan of at all, which has been linked to health problems.

That makes it difficult to score and review but I will do my best to describe my 100% honest feelings on this delicious drink in the coming paragraphs.

Alpine Bliss Healthy Ingredients

Alpine Bliss’s Purple Slimming Tea Formula (seen in the center of the picture above) is packed with healthy ingredients including the star of the show, purple tea leaves that are carefully selected and picked from regions 4,500 to 7,500 feet above sea level.

The purple tea leaves give this drink an incredibly beautiful and unique dark purple color that is loaded with disease protective, free radical scavenging antioxidants, the kind that is typically only found in similarly rare purple foods like purple potatoes and the skin of the eggplant.

Other ingredients include Green Coffee Bean Extract for additional antioxidants and caffeine for a metabolic boost, L-Carnitine for the conversion of calories into energy, Vitamins B6 and B12 for nervous system health, and Ginseng for overall energy and vitality.


The taste of these drinks is incredible and unique. They have a robust berry flavor and just the right of sweetness (more on that in the next section). They also kept me feeling energetic and joyful. I drank them down quickly even though there was one particular ingredient I wasn’t a fan of in this drink recipe.

The ingredient I didn’t like that I am referring to is Sucralose. Sucralose is a synthetic sweetener that has been linked to headaches, allergic reactions, metabolic health disorders and even cancer.

A study published in the journal Food Chemistry stated that “caution should be exercised in the use of Sucralose as a sweetening agent during baking of food products containing glycerol or lipids” as this can potential raise cancer risks according to Dr. Josh Axe.

It has also been linked to leaky gut risks and increased risk of IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). See a full list of potential side effects here.

I personally am a strong believer in the phrase “everything in moderation including moderation.” Whether you personally believe consuming a drink with Sucralose is a good idea is up to you. As I mentioned earlier, the health benefits of the other ingredients are great.

I personally seem to react negatively to aspartame but not nearly as much as I do to Sucralose. I avoid Sucralose when shopping for drinks whenever possible.

I do experience some gastrointestinal discomfort when drinking Sucralose drinks, which to me is a warning sign that I should avoid it as much as possible.

If you have any questions about side effects of Sucralose, aspartame or other food ingredients or drugs be sure to consult your doctor before adding them to your routine.

In conclusion, I really enjoyed these drinks but it pained me to learn that they contained Sucralose when healthy options like organic stevia are available.

Consume at your own risk. Thanks as always for reading and thank you to Alpine Bliss for providing samples of this antioxidant rich and delicious sparkling tea drink.
