Tea Ingredients & Benefits:
Organic Chinese Sencha
Chinese green tea differs from Japanese in that it’s stored and then pan fried, so the leaves become slightly fermented. Chinese sencha has a slightly tart taste, which is excellent grouped with the rest of these ingredients. The caffeine in sencha can be a benefit to weight loss efforts because it can boost metabolism.
Organic Green Oolong
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, including increasing overall energy expenditure, which can support a healthy body weight.
Organic Nettle Leaf
Nettle leaf has been used for hundreds of years as a diuretic, which can be helpful in removing toxins from the body. Nettle leaf has a lovely, spinach-like flavor and, much like the sencha, can be a little tangy.
Another, bright, citrus flavor, lemongrass adds another big boost of lemon taste to this tea blend. Aside from lovely flavor, lemongrass has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, both of which are important for overall health. It can also help make you feel slimmer by helping to remove bloating.
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 Olive Leaf
This Mediterranean staple is popular in health foods and drinks for a good reason: it has plenty of health benefits. Along with being full of free-radical-fighting antioxidants, olive leaf can be helpful in regulating blood sugar and may also help keep your body weight at a healthy level. The olive leaf has a flavor similar that of green tea, but with a hint of olive.
Organic Licorice Root
Licorice root has been used in drinks and tinctures since the time of the ancient Egyptians. Aside from tasting sweet, licorice root has antioxidant and antimicrobial properties. It may also help improve digestion.
The tea tastes tangy and earthy, but has hints of lemon and mint. The licorice root adds a little sweetness. These flavors make for a nice way to start the day.
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.
