Tell Me More
From the first sip of this spectacular blend, the body seems to reconfigure itself along a more peaceful meridian. Rosehip makes an excellent tonic for a tired and worn out body. Anise was well known amongst ancient Egyptians to rejuvenate the digestive system and soothe your respiratory pathways and raspberry is known to improve your vitality. Licorice is a powerful herb that eases body tensions and clears the respiratory system. The spice components of clove and cardamom jump start your entire body. There is much historical evidence to suggest that Nettle, a component of the blend has the ability to settle the body. Some natural historians report that ancient druid herbalists frequently prescribed nettle for its natural medicinal properties. Likewise calendula, has long been prized by herbalists for its ability to cleans and detoxify the body, in particular the liver and gallbladder. Safflower, another component is also believed in natural medicine circles to enhance blood circulation and restore balance to the body. Taken together, these herbs work to restore internal order in the body and make us feel better about ourselves. (Not only that, but they taste great!)

Making an amazing cup of tea requires several things. High quality tea, filtered or freshly drawn cold water, correct water temperature, time of infusion, and filters/infusers. Unfiltered water or too hot of water can ruin the best of teas. Always use filtered or freshly drawn cold water. Any flavor from water treatments or heavy minerals such as lime or calcium can taint the water. Brew at the ideal temperature. Too hot of water can scorch the leaves and produce a bitter brew. If you find that the tea is still bitter following the recommended brewing temperature, try lowering the brew temperature another 5 to 10 degrees. Use infusers that allow the tea leaves to fully expand and has full contact with the water. Ditch the tea bags. Know the steeping time for your tea. Too long of steeping can make your tea bitter and undesirable. Too short of time will make a weak tea. Don’t make tea in the microwave.
We strongly recommend using filtered or freshly drawn cold water brought to a rolling boil when brewing all types of tea. Today’s water has been known to carry viruses, parasites and bacteria. Boiling the water will kill these elements and reduce the potential incidence of water-borne illness. Cool the water to the ideal brewing temperature before brewing.
