Lovely!

This gorgeous herbal infusion is just the tea I needed for relaxing evenings, over a good book, or game of cards with my partner. It’s slightly spicy and slightly sweet, and just delicious, and no caffeine.

Cacao Nibs

Dominican Botanical

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.

Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic is located on the island of Hispanolia in the Carribean, sharing its border with Haiti. While cacao, coffee and sugar combined to make up most of the country's economy thirty years ago, cacao now accounts for just 3% of the country's GDP. We source our cacao nibs during the main harvest between the months of April and July.

Dandelion Root

Flowering Plant

The entire dandelion plant from root to blossom is edible with a mild bitter taste. The root, both fresh and dried, has seen many applications over the years, including traditional Chinese medicinal uses from tinctures to teas.

China

China is the world’s most populous country with a population of around 1.4 billion people. It is also known to be the birthplace of tea, where it was first consumed primarily as a medicinal drink before it was later popularized as a recreational drink by the Tang Dynasty.

Green Cardamom

Spice

Green cardamom is a spice made from the seed of the genus Elettaria. Originally native throughout tropical and subtropical Asia. Nowadays, it is also cultivated in Guatemala, Malaysia and Tanzania. Green cardamom has a distinctive, intense aroma and unique taste. It is used to flavor many different dishes, both sweet and savory, as well as add flavor to coffee and tea.

Guatemala

Guatemala is in Central America just south of Mexico’s border and is historically considered to be at the core of the Mayan civilization. Indian cardamom cultivation was introduced before World War I and by 2000, Guatemala became the largest producer and exporter of cardamom in the world, followed by India.

Green Rooibos

South African Botanical

Green rooibos comes from the same shrub like plant used to make rooibos (Aspalathus linearis). It grows exclusively in a region about 250 km north of Cape Town and the plants are harvested when they reach about 3 feet in height. The topmost tender shoots are hand-cut, then further cut by machine into smaller pieces suitable for tea, followed by drying that preserves the herb's flavor and green color.

Clanwilliam

Clanwilliam is a small farming town of 7,000 nestled between the Cederburg Mountains and the Olifants River in Western Cape, South Africa and is ground zero for the world's supply of Rooibos and lead vocalists for Skid Row. Rooibos is harvested from January through April.

Lemon Myrtle

Australian Botanical

Lemon Myrtle is commercially grown in Eastern Australia and the evergreen bush can be cultivated multiple times per year. It provides the unmistakable citrus notes in our Fez, Meadow, and Big Hibiscus teas.

Northern Rivers Region

The Northern Rivers Region is located in the far northeast of New South Wales in Australia, 500 km north of Sydney, Australia. Once on the decline, it has now been revitalized through niche crops (like Lemon Myrtle), hobby farming and tourism. We'd also like to think it was partly due to some of the fabulously named areas in the region, like the Gold Coast and Nightcap National Park. Camping anyone?

Lemongrass

Herb

Lemongrass is a tall stalky plant native to SE Asia and a prized culinary ingredient. Beloved for its lemony flavor that stands up well to cooking, lemongrass is also known for its health benefits and has been known to contain inflammation-fighting and anti-anxiety compounds.

Thailand

Thailand is in the center of mainland Southeast Asian. It encompasses diverse ecosystems from hilly forested areas in the north to rugged coasts along the southern peninsula and has a long agricultural history dating back to 2,000 BCE.

Rooibos

South African Botanical

Rooibos, also known as red bush, is perhaps the most tea-like and naturally caffeine-free beverage in the world. During the 20th Century, red bush went from being a mostly indigenous drink of South Africa to a global commodity and a cash crop for the Clanwilliam district. Rooibos is also known to be high in antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins. Similar to tea, rooibos generally undergoes an oxidation process after the leaves are cut, when it develops a uniquely sweet and creamy flavor, without the astringency of black tea. It is a common alternative to coffee or tea because it also stands up well to milk and sugar and can be served in various forms quite easily (hot, iced, lattes, etc.). Rooibos can also be steamed after being picked to stop the oxidation process, which will keep it as green rooibos, a more vegetal and floral flavor than the more common red rooibos.

Clanwilliam

Clanwilliam is a small farming town of 7,000 nestled between the Cederburg Mountains and the Olifants River in Western Cape, South Africa and is ground zero for the world's supply of Rooibos and lead vocalists for Skid Row. Rooibos is harvested from January through April.
