NEW! Bamboo Chamomile Fruit & Herb
Boldly herbaceous with a delicious pineapple chamomile finish
This flavorful blend of bamboo, chamomile and dried pineapple will give your body a well-deserved boost! Bamboo Chamomile Fruit & Herb is composed of invigorating herbs and finished with a burst of bright pineapple sweetness.
Bamboo is high in silica, an important trace mineral that depletes as we age. This fragrant blend of bamboo leaves and chamomile is a delicious way to increase your body's supply of silica.
The overall cup is pleasantly herbaceous and finishes with sweet notes of pineapple.
As a Fruit & Herb Tisane, Bamboo Chamomile is naturally caffeine-free.
Bamboo consumed as tea, supplies the body with silica, an important trace mineral that provides strength and flexibility to the connective tissues in our bodies. Cartilage, tendons, skin, bone, teeth, hair and blood vessels all benefit from increased intake of silica as we age. Silica is also essential in the body’s formation of its own collagen which contributes to healthy joints and skin elasticity.
Popular as a “tea” to help induce calm and relaxation, research supports that chamomile may also help:
- Reduce menstrual pain
- Lower blood sugar
- Slow or prevent osteoporosis
- Help reduce inflammation which is linked to a wide range of health problems
- Prevent cancer cells from developing
- Treat cold symptoms
Bamboo Chamomile Fruit & Herb can be enjoyed hot or iced, sweetened with sugar, honey or other sweeteners.
Traditional Hot Tea
Measure one to two heaping teaspoon of tea leaves per one cup water into a tea filter or into an infuser of your choice. Keep in mind, the infuser you choose must be large enough to allow the tea leaves to swell and unfurl. This allows the tea leaves to release their full flavor. Place filter into teapot or mug. Bring filtered or freshly drawn water to a boil then pour into teapot or mug. Infuse 3-5 minutes. Remove the filter and discard or remove infuser and discard tea leaves. Garnish as desired with sugar, honey, sweetener and/or lemon slices.
Measure six heaping teaspoons of tea leaves into a tea filter and place into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Bring 2 cups of filtered or freshly drawn water to a boil. Immediately pour boiled water over filter into teapot or heat-resistant pitcher. Infuse 3-5 minutes. Remove filter and sweeten tea with ½ cup sugar if desired. Add 2 cups of filtered or freshly drawn water to a serving pitcher. Pour in prepared tea and mix well. Add 2 cups ice and stir. Serve immediately or refrigerate.
Measure four teaspoons of tea leaves into a tea filter and place inside a clean glass jar or small pitcher. Position filter so the tea leaves are submerged and the top hangs over the side of the jar or pitcher so that leaves do not spill out once water is added. Pour four cups of filtered or freshly drawn water over the filter. Cover with lid or plastic wrap. Refrigerate 24 hours.
*Cold-infused tea has higher levels of antioxidants. To serve hot, simply pour the cold-infused tisane into a saucepan over medium heat and gently warm to desired temperature.
