Tea Ingredients & Benefits
Organic Orange Peel
With their bright, fresh, citrus flavor, orange peels are at the top of our ingredients list. 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 Cacao Nibs
Made from crushed cocoa beans, cacao nibs are full of lovely antioxidants, which may help maintain cellular health. Cacao nibs are also packed with immune-boosting and inflammation-fighting flavonoids. Because of these wonderful health benefits, as well as it’s deep, warming aroma and taste, we love using cacao nibs in our tea.
Plus, what could be better than the combination of orange and cocoa?
From the mountains of China, Pu’erh tea differs from many other teas in that the leaves are fermented. These fermented leaves may introduce beneficial gut bacteria into your system, which can be great for your digestive health. We love Pu’erh’s earthy, leafy flavor, especially in combination with turmeric and black pepper.
With ancient Indian roots, turmeric has been used as a spice and medicinal herb for thousands of years. In our immunity tea blend, turmeric plays an important role in providing damage control for your cells, and has anti-inflammatory effects. Turmeric is an adaptogen, and is also great for maintaining a healthy immune system. You’ll taste the spicy notes of turmeric and the end of your sip—which will just entice you to take more.
Organic Whole Pepper
Turmeric, and it’s health benefits, are best absorbed by the body when they’re combined with black pepper. So, not only does this ingredient add depth and warmth to the flavor of the tea, it’s actually helping improve the immunity-boosting power of the tea itself.
Our Chocolate Citrus Immunity blend is a treat for the senses as well as the body. Each sip starts with the decadent aroma and taste of chocolate and orange, and finishes with light, spicy notes from the pepper and turmeric. Rich, earthy flavors from Pu’erh pulls everything together.
