Ingredients and Benefits:
Organic Red Rooibos
Oxidized needle like leaves from a South African shrub make up red rooibos tea. Because this red tea is caffeine-free, you can enjoy it any time of day. Rooibos tea is earthy and sweet, and the red-brown coloring makes the tea a full sensory experience. Antioxidants from polyphenols called aspalathin make red rooibos a great way to support a healthy cardiovascular system as well as healthy blood sugar levels. Rooibos is a natural “anti-spasomatic,” which is said to be good for colic and is often used in cosmetics due to its calming properties.
Fennel is another great healthy-digestion supporter because of its anti-inflammatory properties. Fennel may reduce swelling and reduce irritation in the intestines, which can ease an upset stomach.
Lavender flowers from the lavender plant are a wonderful addition to this tea. Not only because it smells so nice, but because lavender is known to calm nerves and improve sleep. Lavender may also soothe menstrual cramping and may also improve skin health.
Organic Dandelion Root
Nope, it’s not just a weed! Not only is dandelion super nutritious, its roots are rich in a type of soluble fiber that can improve your digestive health. This fiber, called inulin, has been found to support the healthy bacteria in your gut.
Organic Burdock Root
Burdock root is a vegetable. The plant’s roots are long and have been used for medicinal purposes for many, many years. In this tea, burdock root provides multiple types of antioxidants, which are great for combating free radicals and alleviating inflammation. Burdock root may also help remove toxins from the blood.
Organic Lemon Verbena
Lemon Verbena leaves provide a fresh, lemony flavor that pairs really well with sencha’s flavor. Native to South America, this plant has been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years. Lemon Verbena is known for its soothing, anti-stress properties from the compound verbascoside.
Peppermint goes with lemon very nicely and adds some freshness to the more earthy tones in this tea. Peppermint may be helpful in preventing and eliminating bloat and stomach discomfort.
Organic Valerian Root
Valerian is an herb that is commonly used to promote healthy sleep. It has a sweet, herbal flavor that pairs well with the citrus flavors in this tea.
Organic Pineapple Flavoring
Senna tea is used to help ease occasional constipation because compounds may promote bowel movements.
The pineapple flavoring in this tea provides a delicious, fruity experience that brings the tropics to you. Alongside the pineapple, you’ll get light notes of citrus, as well as some herbal tones from the peppermint and fennel.
