ingredients & lore
blended with black tea, natural spice flavor, cinnamon bark, orange peels, ginger root, cloves and cardamom pods
From the hieroglyphics on the walls of the pyramids, to the scriptures of ancient religions, we find constant mention of the important part spices played in many cultures. Many of the spices, herbs and seeds we use today were first cultivated by the early peoples of the western world. In fact, our word 'aroma' was the ancient Greek word for 'spice.' Today, when spices cost so little, it is hard to imagine that once these fragrant bits were so costly, that men were willing to risk life and limb in search of them.
