The perfect kid drink: Herbal Teas…..
You can rest assured that there is absolutely no caffeine, sweeteners, flavourings, preservatives or colourings and no gluten either.
The Red Chai tea is a delicious caffeine-free chai tea made with Rooibos, the South African red bush plant. Rooibos, the base for this Chai, is a native plant of South Africa. When the leaves of the plant are sun-dried, they turn a reddish brown colour, which gives Rooibos its name. It has a high antioxidant content, is high in vitamin C and mineral salts.
Mixed with the subtle flavours of Fennel and the chai spices of Cinnamon, ginger, cardamom pods, peppercorns and cloves, this is a refreshing chai drink. Enjoy as a tea or as a chai latte. As with all Chai teas, Red Chai is digestive as the spices will stimulate the bile juices.
Ingredients: Organic Rooibos (caffeine-free), fennel, cloves, cinnamon, cardamom pods, peppercorns & Ginger.

MINT MAGIC TEA
Peppermint & Spearmint
A common question from customers is “what is the difference between Spearmint & Peppermint?”. There is a difference and the most distinct therapeutic difference is the menthol level ( Peppermint has 40% menthol and Spearmint has .05% menthol composition) However, they have many of the same benefits. This is a tea that can help with headaches, fatigue and stress. Peppermint and Spearmint can also help with digestive issues like nausea, flatulence and hiccups by relaxing the stomach muscles.
