Organic Pink Rose Petals
Pink rose petals are a favorite ingredient in our pantry. They provide sweetness and spice along with distinct floral qualities and are used to create complexity in a variety of our Signature Blends.
India is located in Southern Asia and is home to one of the world's oldest civilizations (Indus Valley). It is a country rich in history, culture, religion, geography and so much more, and has been famous since ancient times as a source for herbs and spices that continue to be coveted around the world. Our pink rose petals come from several regions in India and are harvested in March.
Cacao nibs come from the Theobroma cacao tree and are one of the main raw ingredients used for making chocolate. Whole cacao beans are shelled, fermented and then broken down into chopped bits of cocoa seeds. These nibs then go through an additional roasting step, resulting in a more flavorful and less bitter tasting cacao nib.
Peru is the third largest country in South America and the nineteenth largest country in the world. Home to sites like Machu Picchu and the Sacred Valley, Peru has an incredibly rich archeological history and has been home to many ancient civilizations.
Damiana is a woody shrub with small green leaves and aromatic, yellow flowers native to southern Texas in the United States, Central America, Mexico, South America, and the Caribbean. This plant has long been celebrated in ancient Mayan culture and Mexico today for its health benefits. It is known to stimulate digestion, increase blood flow, balance hormones and enhance mood. Damiana has a somewhat bitter flavor that at times reminds us of eucalyptus.
Mexico has a diverse typography and geography. Damiana grows in the semiarid high elevation, typically mountainous, regions of Mexico. As with most herbs, one region might host a slightly different variety or produce a slightly different product depending on weather and climate conditions each year — just like wine grapes.
Organic Ginger Root
Ginger, used in many cultures to enliven food and drink, is also known for its healthful qualities. A light stimulant, it can treat cold symptoms and sore throat. Ginger is cultivated most prominently in India, China, Indonesia and West Africa. After the plant flowers and the leaves die off, the roots are dug, washed, peeled and sun dried. Ginger’s spicy-sweet flavor adds spark and complexity to our Big Hibiscus.
India is located in Southern Asia and is home to one of the world's oldest civilizations (Indus Valley shout out). It is a country rich in history, culture, religion, geography and so much more, and has been famous since ancient times as a source for spices that continue to be coveted around the world. Our ginger comes from several regions in India and is harvested multiple times during the year.
Originally native to Europe, nettles can now be found worldwide in wet environments and moist soils. Our organic nettle leaf is harvested from large, deep-rooted stands in Europe and infuses into a tea that is dark and rich in flavor. Nettle leaves are harvested in the spring, once the plant has had time to mature but before it goes into flower.
A landlocked country, Hungary is home to Lake Balaton, the largest in central Europe, and to a large number of spa towns and hot springs. Hungary has a continental climate, with hot summers with low overall humidity levels but frequent showers and frigid to cold snowy winters.
Organic Peppermint Leaves
Pacific Northwest Botanical
The world’s most flavorful peppermint comes from the Pacific Northwest, where the summers are hot and dry. Ours is harvested just before it begins to flower, when the oil content is highest. After cutting, the plant is allowed to field dry. Then the stems are removed and the mint is sorted into uniform leaf sizes. With intense menthol and rich chocolate notes, Pacific Northwest peppermint is a real wakeup for your senses.
The Pacific Northwest is a region along the West Coast of the U.S., consisting of the states of Oregon and Washington. The Cascade Mountain Range, which cuts through the region from north to south, acts as distinct divider of landscape and climate, with the west side receiving ample rain, creating a lush evergreen environment, while the east remains arid, creating a high desert environment. While Peppermint has historically been grown on both sides, it is now primarily grown east of the Cascades and harvested in the summer.
Organic Raspberry Leaf
Native to many parts of Europe, North America, and western Asia, Rubus idaeus is an easily cultivated member of the Rose family. Recognized for its sweet fruits and pleasant tasting leaves, it is known as one of the best normalizing herbs for the female reproductive organs. The leaves of the raspberry plant offer high levels of magnesium, calcium and iron. Since Raspberry leaf contains tannins, which some say gives it a flavor similar to black tea, it does have a slight astringency.
Albania is a small country situated in the Balkans, and is located on the Adriatic and Ionian Seas within the Mediterranean Sea. The country displays varied climatic, geological, hydrological, and morphological conditions and the landscape ranges from the snow-capped mountains in the Albanian Alps to the hot and sunny coasts of the Adriatic and Ionian Seas along the Mediterranean.
Organic Red Clover
Native to the Eastern Mediterranean and Asia, Red Clover, or Trifolium pratense, is a flowering plant in the bean family Fabaceae. Rich in calcium, magnesium, potassium and vitamin C, the familiar large, pinkish-purple clover grows in lawns, pastures, and roadsides throughout the United States. Red clover has a pleasant, earthy and slightly floral flavor profile.
The United States of America is a North American nation considered to be the world’s leading economic, cultural, and military power.

The US is also home to some of the most diverse landscape around, being home to natural wonders such as the Grand Canyon (one of the seven wonders of the world) and urban epicenters such as New York City.
Organic Stevia Leaf
Stevia leaf is nature's best sweetener. Often confused for it's highly processed sweetener namesake, the leaf itself is more delicate and nuanced in its flavor. Still sweet and full of body, we use it primarily in our holiday blend, Silent Night, where it provides a natural sweetness earning it the title of "Candycane in a Cup." It's produced around the world, but we find it's best when grown in India or China.
