Herbal Water Review & Giveaway


Herbal Water is a company that makes flavored water by infusing organic herbal extracts in pure artesian water. They use no artificial sweeteners, no preservatives, and no additives of any kind! Herbal water comes in six exotic flavor combinations!

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.


Ayala's Herbal Water is the first certified organic flavored water that's made from all organic ingredients and available nationwide. It is, in fact, 100% good for you!


For my review, I received all 6 flavors of Herbal Water to try. 


Lemongrass Mint Vanilla




Ayala's Lemongrass Mint Vanilla Herbal Water is a bright medley of crisp flavor notes with a smooth finish.  Awaken your senses with organic lemongrass extract, refreshing spearmint, and the suppleness of real vanilla.
Especially versatile, the citrusy-floral taste of lemongrass gets an added jolt of cool with spearmint, while the vanilla rounds out the mix with a deep and persistent sweetness that lingers pleasantly on the palate.
Try this citrusy-minty-vanilla drink after a workout or yoga class to reenergize your body and mind while maintaining that blissful post-exercise feeling.  Indulge in the sweet aromatic scent and rehydrate with delicious herbs infused in pure water.

My Thoughts:
To me, it tasted like spearmint gum. I could definitely taste the mint, not really much else. Good.

Lavender Mint



Escape into the flavorful and aromatic world of luscious lavender and delicate spearmint with Ayala's Lavender Mint Herbal Water.  Hints of lemongrass and thyme enhance this powerful blend with a citrusy sweetness and subtle clean undertones.



Open the bottle and take a deep breath.  Inhale a scent of organic lavender so fine you can almost feel the warm breeze swaying the fragrant flower buds.  Let the spearmint rejuvenate your senses, while a little lemongrass and thyme ground you in the moment.  Take the first sip and remind your taste buds of the simple delight of real, natural flavor.









My Thoughts:




Kind of a flowery taste. Not bad though. Refreshing and clean.


Lemon Verbena Geranium
 Ayala's Lemon Verbena Geranium Herbal Water is a pure, sensual delight that pairs the crisp, clean taste of lemon verbena with the flowery softness of rose geranium.  Take a diversion into the sweet beyond with this gorgeous herbal blend.



Pair this flowery-citrus beverage with your favorite fruits and other sweet treats.  The rosy flavors and bold lemony notes are primed for rich chocolates and dark berries and enhance subtle melons and custards.
We think of Lemon Verbena Geranium as our most romantic blend and have quickly fallen in love with the graceful floral aromas and clean citrusy finish.  Try it today-maybe you'll find love at first sip, too.

My Thoughts:
This was the only one I didn't care for. To me, it tasted like perfume. It was very strong. That's just my opinion, you may love it!

Cloves Cardamom Cinnamon
 Nourish body and soul with Ayala's Cloves Cardamom Cinnamon Herbal Water.  This robust blend caresses the palate with the warmth of deep, rich flavors from some of the earth's most sensual and ancient spices.



Clove Cardamom Cinnamon was a natural choice for us, and this delicate blend pays homage to the longstanding legacy of spiced chai teas.  These three spices mingle playfully on the taste buds in a full-bodied medley of warm, earthy flavors.
We use only organic cardamom, cinnamon, and clove extract to infuse our beverages and suggest pairing this drink with a delicious, spicy meal.  Of course, it's also good on its own, especially to warm yourself inside-out on chilly days and nights.

My Thoughts:
This is the one that I could taste every ingredient. All of them came through equally. Nice combination.

Cinnamon Orange Peel



Let Ayala's Cinnamon Orange Peel Herbal Water whisk you away with an invigorating and exotic flavor.  Orange peel extract and cinnamon combine citrusy high-notes in an even balance with a subtle, earthy sweetness.
Our Cinnamon Orange Peel beverage blends two delicious and unlikely flavors that undoubtedly belong together.  Sweet orange peel welcomes the hearty warmth of cinnamon, and the result is a delicious drink that's equal parts bright and bold.
We love this blend year round but find its flavors are a wonderful accompaniment to a late summer or early fall afternoon spent outside in the sunshine.  Pair it with your favorite meals or drink it all by itself for a moment of sunny refreshment.

My Thoughts:
I didn't taste the cinnamon in this one. Which is surprising because cinnamon is strong. I tasted the orange a lot. Really good!

Ginger Lemon Peel



Ayala's Ginger Lemon Peel Herbal Water excites taste buds with a bright explosion of flavor!  Lemon peel enhances the spicy warmth of the ginger root with a refreshing, citrusy zing that leaves the palate tingling for more.
Ginger lovers rejoice at this spicy-sweet herbal blend that draws out the best of woody, pungent, and refreshing ginger and pairs it with zippy lemon peel.
We consider ginger lemon peel our mellowest (or lightest) blend and suggest drinking it regularly to accompany everyday living.  Restore your vitality with every sip.

My Thoughts:
This one, by far, was my favorite. To me, it tasted just like unsweetened lemonade! Very nice!
