At the end of a long day, a warm cup of herbal goodness can really lighten the spirits, ease the nerves and soothe the heart and belly. Especially on days when we have had a little too much caffeine, or just too much stress, calming herbs like these can help us transition into relaxation and healthy rest. Bianca Blend is a scrumptious pairing of classic hibiscus and chamomile flowers, Holy Detox is a healing brew with tulsi root and spearmint, and Herbal Chai made from a Roobis base.
3 packages of 2 oz each, this bundle includes:
A delicious pairing of two lovely flowers, with bright orange peel complimenting both. When steeped shortly, the infusion is golden and fragrant with soothing chamomile blossoms, a stomach tonic and sleep aid. Steep it longer to really get the most out of the orange peel and hibiscus – the liquid becomes more red and succulent, with strong lingering cranberry notes.
A squeeze of lemon and a little honey or sugar amplify sweet and sour flavors of hibiscus and orange and also compliment the minty-cool chamomile. Try it iced as a relaxing summer refreshment.
Steeping Time – 5 – 7 Minutes
Water Temp – 195 – 212 F
Chamomile blossoms, orange peel, hibiscus, and orange flavor.
Who knew that medicine could be so delicious? Tulsi, or Holy Basil, has been used for thousands of years in Ayurvedic medicine as a powerful immune-booster and “adaptogen” – helping the body adapt to stress, imbalance, and seasonal changes – and is used in many different forms as a daily health supplement. Combined with cooling spearmint, it presents a sweetly spicy flavor profile as it eases digestion and uplifts the spirits. Rosehips, linden blossoms, and lemon myrtle also contribute to the anti-inflammatory detoxifying attributes of this health tonic and add subtle floral notes to the cup. Holy Detox is especially helpful when recovering from a cold, flu, or seasonal depression.
Healing herbs are best steeped long and strong, so we recommend using 1-2 tablespoons of herbs per serving, and steeping for 10 minutes. If you like an even stronger cup, feel free to add more herbs and steep up to 20 minutes.
All the ingredients in this blend are beneficial as well as yummy. Tulsi is integral to Ayurvedic medicine, often recommended to treat respiratory congestion, regulate blood sugar levels, and reduce stress and anxiety. Spearmint can be an aid to digestion and reduce nausea, headaches, and toothaches. Rosehips are abundant in vitamin C, an important immune-booster. Lemon Myrtle is another immune-booster and detoxifier that also improves mood and helps relaxation and sleep. Linden Blossoms assist in lowering blood pressure and inflammation as they expand blood vessels and reduce tension in nerves and muscles.
Holy Detox is one of our most popular herbal infusions. Check it out for yourself, and see why so many are raving about this premium blend that is as healthful as it is delicious!

“Masala Chai” simply means “mixed-spice tea” – though this version contains no tea, and therefore no caffeine. Rooibos boasts rich earthy and vanilla tones which amplify ginger, cinnamon and vanilla flavors. The aromas wafting out of this cup are fantastic, spicy enough to wake you up without any need for caffeine.
Mild and forgiving, it is impossible to over-steep rooibos, and it is excellent with sugar, honey, milk, nut milks, fruits, etc.
Rooibos, or “red bush,” is native to the western coast of South Africa, and it has been harvested from the wild for millennia. Only recently has it been cultivated, but with a high reputation as a cheap and delicious caffeine-free tea alternative, in less than 100 years its popularity has spread to every continent. Rooibos is frequently used to substitute tea in herbal blends. The tiny leaves have a malty sweetness reminiscent of black tea, but also a variety of their own unique accents, with strawberry, honey, and vanilla notes, as well as earthy and tobacco undertones.
Steeping Time – 7 Minutes

Rooibos leaves, ginger root, cinnamon, green cardamom, ginger and vanilla flavors.
