What’s In It?

Many ask that question and we are happy to share. It’s not just a matter of using premium natural organic ingredients, but also balancing the perfect amount of each ingredient, so that they can work together. Preparing the variety of herbs and spices and blending the right mixture is key.

Please be sure to steep our tea for 15 to 20 minutes to extract all the potential healing properties from each ingredient. It is best to cover your pot or tea press during the steeping to maintain all the valuable oils and extracts that are released.
