Ingredients & Benefits
Organic Yerba Mate
Yerba Mate is native to South America and comes from a type of holly tree. It’s a popular beverage in Argentina, Paraguay, and Brazil with its strong, earthy flavor. Yerba Mate is a powerful antioxidant, which can fight free-radicals in your body that may cause cell damage. Yerba mate leaves may also provide some protection against some types of infections.
Organic Oolong Tea
Oolong is made from the leaves, buds and branches of camellia sinensis plant, and it falls between a black and a green tea—giving it properties of both. Oolong has some wonderful health benefits. It provides anti-inflammatory benefits, and may help improve gut biome health. Your digestive system’s health plays a huge role in your body’s immunity.
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 being rich in phenolic compounds, which may reduce oxidative stress and provide an immunity boost.
Organic Orange Peel
With their bright, fresh, citrus flavor, orange peels are a lovely addition to your morning brew. Not only are they flavorful, but orange peels are high in vitamin C and plant compounds called polyphenols. Both are great for maintaining a healthy immune system, as well as nourishing the body.
Organic Dandelion Leaf
Nope, it’s not just a weed! As part of this immunity blend, dandelion leaf adds a delicate, sweet flavor. It provides support to your immunity system because it may have both antiviral and antibacterial properties.
Rosehips are the round part of the flower. You can find them below the petals. They add a lovely, floral note to our Morning Immunity blend, but because they’re also very rich in vitamin C, they also provide a natural immunity boost.
Ginger has been used in cooking, tea, and in medicines for a very long time. Many of ginger’s benefits come from the compound gingerol, which is a powerful antioxidant. Ginger has been the star of some interesting new studies which suggest ginger could enhance your immune response.
Fennel is another great immunity supporter because of its vitamin C content. Fennel is also full of antioxidant-rich polyphenols. It’s known to aid digestion, which can be a great way to support a healthy immune system. Fennel tastes a little bit like licorice. Alongside the other ingredients in this blend, it’s flavor provides a slightly bitter note.
The flavors in this tea are strong and earthy. They are balanced, however, with citrus flavor from the lemon verbena and orange peel. For a stronger flavor, steep longer. If you like a less flavorful tea, steep for less time.
Depending on your needs, we can package this tea blend with whatever name you choose. You can order this tea in pyramid sachets, or as loose leaf.
