Tiger Milk or Kunnu Aya is named after the North African original: Horchata. While it’s name honors that original gossamer beverage, and it’s flavor is inspired by the South American take which features rice instead of tiger nuts, you’ll find that this blend is an entity all its own. 


With cozy, wintery flavors that make you think of snuggling up with a new flame on a snowy evening, this tea is perfect for warm moments in. 


Brew for 5-10 minutes

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



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


Orange peel is used for loss of appetite, cases of minor sleeplessness, and as a supportive measure in treating stomach complaints, according to the American Botanical Council while a clinical study published through the National Institute of Health suggests citrus has an anti-anxiety effect. The Naturopathic Herbalist describes cinnamon as being chiefly employed for its smooth muscles relaxing effects which acts systemically. What about rice? Rice is a good source of magnesium, phosphorus, manganese, selenium, iron, folic acid, thiamin and niacin according to an article published in the National Library of Medicine. In this tea, vanilla extract is used, which in its dry form includes sucrose. What an incredible plant vanilla is! Coveted over the ages, vanilla’s high status in the culinary world comes from a long history steeped in culinary, aphrodisiac and a medical botanical traditions. An article in the journal Nutrition Today talks about the medical benefits of vanillin, vanilla’s active constituent, and it’s role in alleviating fever, spasms, and gastrointestinal irritations. But let’s be honest, the intrigue here still lies in the aphrodisiac qualities.


Everything you put in your body has an effect on you. Folk Tea suggests that you consult with a qualified healthcare professional before using herbal products, particularly if you take other medications, or if you are nursing, pregnant, or expecting to become pregnant.
