Cup your hands around this steaming, cinnamony, tea that's based on the wintery delight: mulled wine.  An excellent replacement for an evening glass of wine - calming but gently stimulating, with flavor and tannin: full-bodied and interesting; and blended with herbs that have been traditionally used to rebalance blood sugar, and gently stimulate the vascular system - warming and invigorating.

 

Brew for a minimum of 2-4 minutes

Use 1 tbsp of tea per 8 ounces of 212°F water

***Add honey if you like it sweet!

 

Want to know more about the ingredients? Here’s how some of them are traditionally used around the world:

 

Schisandra berries are incredible! They somehow offer sweet, sour, salty, bitter and umami flavors. In this tea, they paint the high notes of the flavor profile - completing that bright feeling. Schisandra is also an adaptogen (a substance that naturally rebalances the body and hormones), while supporting liver health - helping to clear out old or stagnant energy. In China, Schisandra is known as a superfruit and is used for stamina and vitality. It’s also traditionally used for preventing early aging and increasing lifespan, normalizing blood sugar and blood pressure, and stimulating the immune system. Then there's organic cinnamon which is the center of all the wintery flavor. The cinnamon's soft and stimulating, but still creates heat and moves energies by improving blood vessel dilation. It has smooth muscles relaxing effects, too, which act systemically and are thus used in the treatment of hypertension, and anxiety. There's clove in the mix, too, which has been used traditionally for thousands of years as a digestive aid, and is used in the Ayurvedic and Chinese Medicine herbal traditions in many different ways including as a pain killer, antioxidant, antiseptic, anti-depressant, antispasmodic, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, antifungal, and antibacterial. It is also a fabulous flavor balance for the central cinnamon. Damiana is known for its aphrodisiac qualities. It calms by relaxing the nervous system. It also, interestingly, stimulates the nervous system, elevating mood. I often giggle thinking back to years ago when I first started blending teas and my 10-year-old friend 

was sniffing the damiana brew. She inhaled and oblivious of it’s aphrodisiac qualities exclaimed: “oh I LOVE this!” “..yes,” I said. “Of course!” This is for that “feel good” love factor. The flower that gives that sumptuous rouge color to the tea is hibiscus - it's half the tannin, and that bright blast in flavor. It's grown in warm, wet climates, and helps regulate and lower high blood pressure, regulate blood sugar levels and also has lovely anti-inflammatory properties. Lemongrass has a dispersive quality that makes it useful for eliminating and excreting unnecessary waste particles and helping the body to function more smoothly and efficiently. It also brings gentle anti-inflammatory with antispasmodic properties that are helpful for reducing muscle spasms, restless legs and arthritis.
