Aaaah this tea… it’s one of my new favorite! 😍 Actually it’s not a tea – but rather an infusion of carefully selected herbs, grown sustainability and organically. 

I’ve always loved a good ginger tea – don’t you? But sometimes having to slice fresh ginger root isn’t always the most convenient, and I have to say I love how quick and easy it is to just throw a tea bag in a cup and pour hot water on top. And hop, done!

Tim and I often enjoy sipping on a hot cup of ginger infusion after our dinner meal, all curled up in covers on the couch watching a movie, as it improves digestion and honestly it smells delicious. Only the problem is, we were always disappointed to find that the taste of most ginger infusions was quite … non existent to say the least. 

Until we found this one! The taste of ginger is incredibly present, and I would swear there is real, fresh cut ginger root in my cup of tea. This herbal infusion also has Tulsi  (Holy basil) and lemongrass in it.

The full list of ingredients:

Organic Ginger (root), Organic Tulsi (Holy Basil) (blend of Vana Tulsi, Krishna Tulsi, and Rama Tulsi), Organic Lemongrass, Organic Lemon Flavor. 

Mmmh.. Organic lemon flavor though? I don’t always like when I see “flavor” written on a food I’m about to eat, especially “natural flavors” that can hide nasty glutamate, a neurotoxic that messes with your brain and nervous system. 

I reached out to the brand to ask where their lemon flavor came from, and this is their answer:

“The natural flavors we use are derived from pure fruit extracts and essential oils, which are certified organic and contain no sugar, additives, preservatives, synthetic or artificial components, MSG, soy, corn, dairy or gluten”. 

Ok good enough for me!
