Contains natural traces of caffeine.
Black tea (Camellia Sinensis)
Black tea has many health benefits. The antioxidants in black tea are called polyphenols. Polyphenols have been found to block DNA damage associated with toxic chemicals. The tannins in black tea also have a therapeutic effect on the gastric lining and improve digestive activity. Black tea is the base used traditionally in chai tea.
Cinnamon (Cinnamomum zeylanicum)
Cinnamon is known to assist in balancing blood sugar levels and warming the digestive tract for improved digestion. The volatile oils in cinnamon are antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral. Cinnamon is considered to be an overall body tonic.
Ginger (Zingiber officinale)
Ginger is gently stimulating, which improves oxygen transport throughout the body. It has been used for relief from cramping, gas and nausea throughout history. Ginger has also been beneficial in both motion sickness, and morning sickness in pregnancy for hundreds of years.
Cardamon (Elettaria cardamomum)
Cardamon is native to the evergreen forests of India. Cardamon has been found to improve digestive and cardiovascular health. It is used to treat nausea, bloating, acidity, gas and heartburn. Cardamon's phytonutrients act in the body as an antioxidant, helping cells resist cellular ageing.
Clove (Syzygium aromaticum)
Clove helps to induce the production and release of bile from the liver and gallbladder, which aids in digestion and detoxification. Clove can also stimulate digestion and act as a pain reliever throughout the body.
Organic black pepper (Piper nigrum)
Organic black pepper is warming, and improves the absorption and therapeutic value of other herbs.
