Detoxification (detox for short) is a process by which you attempt to flush toxins and chemicals from your system and improve your body's natural abilities to heal.
Our all natural ingredients include goji berries, sencha green tea, dandelion leaf, oolong leaf, pu'erh leaf, rose flower, lemongrass, sage leaf, thyme leaf and persimmon leaf.
Our detox blend is packaged in pyramid tea bags, so preparing the tea is very straightforward - simply place the tea bag in your cup/mug, bring water to a near boil, then pour over the tea bag. Let the tea steep for 3-4 minutes, discard the bag and enjoy!
The tea will be most effective when consumed without dairy, but if you would like to sweeten it you could add honey, maple syrup, lemon or stevia.
Yes, of course, but WHAT you eat is very important. Here are a few tips:
Every body is different and so results will vary. We strongly recommend to eat healthy and exercise regularly for best results.
Green tea naturally contains caffeine which may act as both a stimulant and a diuretic. For these reasons, we do not recommend drinking our detox blend during your pregnancy or while breastfeeding.
While we do not carry any decaffeinated teas, we do carry a wide selection of herbal and fruit teas that are naturally caffeine free.
Matcha is a powdered form of tea. With traditional teas the leaves are infused in hot water and the leaves are then discarded (many can be infused multiple times). With matcha you are drinking the actual tea leaves that have been ground into a fine powder.
Matcha is typically made from green tea leaves and it contains the highest levels of antioxidants and polyphenols, however there are also matcha powders made from black and white tea leaves. Matcha comes in various grades and you will also find pre-mixed versions with sweeteners and/or flavoring. Matcha can also be added to smoothies, desserts, baked goods and other foods as natural flavoring and/or coloring.
There are 3 different ways to prepare matcha depending on the product you are using...
Matcha Green Tea: Place 1/2 to 1 tsp Matcha (1 to 2 bamboo spoons) in a Matcha bowl; Pour in 2 oz of steaming hot water (180° F); Rapidly beat with bamboo whisk until surface gets foamy.
Cold Matcha: Add 1 Tbsp Matcha powder to 8 oz water or milk; Blend and enjoy!
Cooking/Baking: Matcha powder can be added to just about any recipe, including pancakes, cookies, pasta, pudding, ice cream, and more. Check out this article on StyleCaster.com for some great recipe ideas.
Yes, of course...we have several different sample packs available for purchase so you can try different flavors and varieties in smaller amounts.
