Ginseng|PANAX GINSENG 06.07.16
Asian Ginseng helps boost immunity due to its abundant vitamin C content. Asian Ginseng has been a staple of Traditional Chinese Medicine for centuries. Ginseng products are typically referred to as "tonics" or agents purported to increase resistance to physical, chemical, and biological stress while also building vitality, including the physical and mental capacity for productive work.
Panax Ginseng is native to the Asian continent and is believed to have been discovered over 5,000 years ago and harvested as an important food source in the mountainous regions of Manchuria, China.
Rooibos|Aspalathus linearis 06.06.16
Native to South Africa, rooibos has been coveted for centuries for its restorative properties. Fresh and exhilarating, our Rooibos Red Vanilla tea features hints of berries and honey with a subtle floral aroma. With traces of almond, it offers bright fruitiness and soothing vanilla flavor, which offsets any residual tartness.
Good for: Slow, meditative sips on an evening patio, refreshing respite in the summer shade, and idle strolls through the arid plains, deserts, and savannas.
Yerba Mate|Ilex paraguariensis 06.05.16
A 16-ounce slice of the tropics: spicy, sweet, cool, and citrus. From Patagonia and Cotopaxi to Galapagos and Guayaquil, the leaves of the mate tree are rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Our Yerba Mate is brisk but vegetal with a banana coconut sweetness—sunny and bright like the seashore with an exotic twist of Andean goodness. You won’t know quite what hit you, but you’ll absolutely want another.
Good for: Forays into unknown lands, ocean jumpers, underwater alertness, and robust blasts of island taste bottled for your drinking pleasure.
