Product Review: Ayala's Herbal Water

Closed.  And, the winner is:  Jackie V.

Ayala’s Herbal Water®, the leader in organic, herb-infused water recently sent me a sampling of their 6 flavors to taste test and share my thoughts.  I am not a huge fan of water and find it hard to drink the recommended 64 oz. of fluids/water daily.  And, with this pregnancy, I have been craving more sugary beverages like juices and sodas.  But, as a health educator, I also know how important it is to drink plenty off water to help flush the wastes from your body.  So, I thought, why not give this award-winning herbal water a try.  Who knows, maybe I would like?


"Ayala’s Herbal Water® is the first to offer a zero-calorie, organic infusion delivering sophisticated refreshment through the complex flavors of culinary herbs."Culinary herbs are the natural way to add real flavor and enhance any food or drink.  For centuries, they have been prized for their calming, stimulating, and aphrodisiac qualities.  Ayala's flavored water harnesses the power of these natural wonders in a delightfully refreshing, mellow, yet complex, aromatic drink.  Enjoy a straight-from-the-garden taste of organic herbal extracts and the crisp freshness of artesian water in every sip."


After spending the past week sampling each of the 6 exotic flavors sent to me, I have to say my top 3 favorites were:  Lavender Mint, Cinnamon Orange Peel and Ginger Lemon Peel.  An added bonus was that I received a pairing card with the samples, so it explained the best foods to eat while sampling each herbal water.  In addition, they offered up cocktail suggestions for a little pick me up.  I was not too fond of the Lemon Verbena Geranium flavor, though.  It smelled too perfumey, and was a turn off while drinking. 

Overall, I was impressed with Ayala's herbal water and surprised at the flavor of each bottle, which was achieved with the use of culinary herbs.  If you are a fan of powered flavor water mix-ins or flavor drops, I would highly suggest that you try Ayala's herbal water.  To me, there is more flavor in these herbal waters than you get with the mix-ins.
