It is a liquid ode to Earth’s bounty, starting with organic, hand-selected yerba mate, nettle, and horsetail. They can all stimulate and support a healthy glow from within due to their rich quantities of antioxidants, phytonutrients, and bioflavonoids.
Then, there are the age-defying fruits. Organic goji berry and sea buckthorn berry are two ingredients we prize in our skin care for their vast array of minerals, fatty acids, and Vitamin C. Their remedial benefits are thousands of years in the making.
We finished the Beauty Blend with lemongrass, which is one of the first notes your nose will catch. It tastes vaguely floral with a hint of something citrus—the perfect topnotes to balance the blend's earthy essence. As for your mood, well...
You'll notice a subtle lift upon first sip. This full-bodied, lightly-caffeinated tea will promote energy and clarity as it enhances your morning ritual at the dawn of a new day, when beauty is a mere teaspoon away.
