White Tea – Like green tea and black tea, white tea leaves are harvested and processed from the “true” tea plant, Camellia sinensis. But what makes white tea so different— and “indulgent?” It’s made up of only the youngest, most tender leaves that tea-growers can pick; in ancient times, this “grade” was reserved only for the elite class due its truly sublime taste. White teas yield utterly fragrant yet delicate-tasting beverages with all the highlights and shades of green tea, while lacking the bitterness. They still retain health benefits (like antioxidants, nervous system support, better metabolism, and more) but with only a fraction of the caffeine content.
Apple – An apple a day, so they say. America’s favorite fruit may also help keep the doctor away when made part of this delicious and aromatic daily tea. Not unlike white tea, apple is abundant with its own brand of flavonoid antioxidants, said to both reduce cancer risk and protect against inflammation. Besides its healthy virtues, we put apple in the mix owing to its simple sweetness— it gives our other ingredients a supportive backbone while perfectly complimenting white tea’s flavors.
Blackberry – Exquisitely dried leaves from this cultivated berry add an astringent “tang” to our tea, rounding out sweet and floral notes. Blackberry tea also stands out as a historic herbal remedy in its own right. A bevy of antioxidants make it an excellent ingredient for supporting both digestive and eye health, while tannins may help soothe sore throats.
Lemongrass – A hot lemongrass tea can help cut through stress anytime with its clean citrus flavors and crisp aroma. It also contains antioxidants aplenty. While ingredients like white tea are uplifting, lemongrass infuses this tea with an extra dose of calm for a truly balanced experience.
Lychee – We add a pinch of lychee natural flavoring to bring more citrus notes to our blend, supporting blackberry and lemongrass’s flavors.
Pear – Pear natural flavoring melds perfectly with our apple’s subtle sweetness.
Cornflower – For a bit more color and vibrancy, our blend also includes dried cornflower petals. This blue flower has a mellow flavor and mild health benefits, including some antioxidant content.
Rose Petals – Rose petals likewise imbue our blend with a touch of color and another lovely layer of floral flavor, too. Some antioxidants and vitamin C can be found in rose petals of all shapes and colors.
To invoke an indulgent moment in your day, bring fresh cold water to a boil. Pour over 1-2 teaspoons of tea leaves for every 8 ounces of water. Steep 3-4 minutes and enjoy while still piping hot, but sip-able (or drinkable).
