Our Teas8TH WONDER'S YERBA MATE, ROOIBOS, GREEN, AND BLACK TEAS ARE CERTIFIED ORGANIC AND FAIR TRADE CERTIFIED BECAUSE WE TAKE OUR ENVIRONMENTAL AND SOCIAL IMPACT SERIOUSLY.
8th Wonder Tea creates custom spice blends that are uniquely suited to each tea for flavor optimization. Unlike many teas that borrow and gather a large array of ingredients without a frame of cultural reference, then add some sugar, some water, and call it a finished product, 8th Wonder goes to the source of every ingredient to figure out how best to honor tea drinking traditions, preserve authentic flavor combinations, and craft a bottle worthy of its cultural and historical antecedents.
We do not add filler ingredients or throw disjointed flavors together. Every single ingredient is part and parcel of the balanced whole, which is why our teas simply taste better: they build on the wisdom of the people that have been drinking these herbs and plants for health, wholeness, and enjoyment over centuries. Rather than think we can improve or subtract from this time-tested formula, we endeavor to preserve the knowledge of tea drinking cultures and countries, who have proven time and again that they know best.
Generally grassier tasting, our green tea combined with organic fruit juice & lemongrass produces a lush, revitalizing flavor profile reminiscent of morning freshness.
With prominent vegetal and floral notes coupled with ginseng's added vitamin C, this tea is sure to satisfy with its textures and aromas of fruitiness and slight tartness.
With black teas being notably stronger than less oxidized greens, our Ashwagandha Apple Chai tea exhibits a more savory & spicy character.
With subtle hints of cardamom and clove, the profile of this tea is notably warm with a zesty and addicting aftertaste that makes it difficult to drink in moderation. Evocative of autumn and changing seasons, the multi-bodied but complimentary flavors of this black tea are sure to spice up the day while helping the body and mind adjust to its environment.
8th Wonder's green and black teas are organically grown in Kenya, boasting a full-bodied robust and herbaceous flavor due to the integrity and care taken in the cultivation of each tea plant. Arguably the oldest consumed beverage in the world, green and black teas are derived from The Camellia Sinensis plant with green varieties not being exposed to the oxidation and withering processes characteristic to black teas.
8th Wonder teas utilize a root and leaf extract of Ashwagandha (withania somnifera), an adaptogenic botanical which has been revered for thousands of years for its ability to balance, energize, and revitalize the mind and body. In Ayurveda, the traditional system of medicine native to India, Ashwagandha is considered the king of all herbs. This brand of extract has been evaluated in 10 human clinical trials and possesses the highest levels of stress-fighting Ashwagandha bioactives currently in the industry.
Our Ashwagandha extract's functional benefits include helping the body cope with stress, promoting mental clarity and concentration, promoting a calming, relaxing state of mind, and supporting healthy cardiovascular function. The extract we use in 8th Wonder products is vegetarian, certified organic, and non-GMO.
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.
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.
