What's in your cup? Here's a peek behind some of the select ingredients in this blend.
With a delightful sweetness unexpected in an herbal remedy, licorice root tea has been used throughout history to soothe the digestive tract and throat, relieve irritation, and promote respiratory health. Its use has been documented by the great civilizations of the ancient past; prized for its healing properties and used as a cure-all by the Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans. With a lengthy list of versatile uses, it's not surprising this ancient herb has endured through centuries and is now one of the most widely used plants in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda.
With its incomparable fresh flavor and powerful aroma, peppermint has a unique ability to uplift, invigorate, and awaken the senses. We source our peppermint leaves from the Pacific Northwest, where the cultivars are considered the most potent and abundant in the world. The combination of the climate, soil, and farming practices yields mint with a distinctly high level of menthol, the plant’s chief active compound credited for potential anti-inflammatory effects. An integral plant in herbal medicine, peppermint imparts a cooling sensation on irritated throats and eases nasal congestion with its refreshingly minty aroma.

Also known as ‘holy basil’, tulsi has been revered as a sacred plant in India for over five thousand years. Widely regarded as one of the preeminent herbs in Ayurvedic medicine, tulsi is used to support a healthy immune system, maintain everyday wellness, and as a remedy for a variety of ailments including colds, congestion, and sore throats. Believed to have protective and restorative powers, it has become a legendary part of Hindu culture—adorning houses and temples and earning such names as ‘The Elixir of Life’ and ‘Mother Medicine of Nature’.

I enjoyed this tea - it is much more than lemon juice in a cup of water, for sure! The lemon flavor dominates, and the other flavor hints balance it nicely.
