Tea with Licorice Root


If you’re like me and you only think of the black licorice candy ropes when you think of licorice, then tea with licorice root might reframe your idea of this incredible plant.

You may have already enjoyed licorice root in your tea and not known it, if you’ve had the Rejuvenation Blend lemon ginger tea. This blend starts with lots of fresh, spicy ginger root and crisp lemon peel. The ginger and lemon combo is always a winner and imparts sweet spiciness to your cuppa.
This blend is boosted with a few apple pieces and licorice root for sweetness, and topped with rose petals for a calming influence. This is a fabulous choice for a tea that tastes good without sugar: sweet and powerful, yet calming, all in one brew.

Tea with Marshmallow Root


Just the word “marshmallow” brings a smile to my face, and conjures up thoughts of those white puffs of sticky sugar.
Did you know that marshmallows have quite an interesting history? They’re one of the earliest confections to be made from the root of the marshmallow plant. In ancient times, the root was boiled and mixed with honey to create a dense cake, generally reserved for royalty.
For centuries, our friends of ancient days valued marshmallow root for its medicinal qualities. So, to have it not only be a sweet treat in tea, but also a powerful health ally, well...it’s almost too good to be true!
Marshmallow root can be found in the Refreshing "After Dinner" mint tea.
Perfect for a post-party digestive; wonderful in any moment. Pinches of fresh mint and spearmint give a bright and balanced flavor. Earthy honeybush tea provides a calming body, and here again we encounter ginger as an ingredient, for that natural lively spice, as well as clove.
Then enters our leading ingredient, marshmallow root, dashing in with its natural sweetness to tie it all together. Truly a best tasting tea without sugar.
