ingredients & lore
blended with black tea, natural sweet potato flavor, cinnamon bark, ginger root and marigold flowers
The sweet potato is actually related to morning glories, but only a distant cousin of regular potatoes. This tuberous root can have red, purple, brown or white skin. While sweet potatoes have enjoyed a long and celebrated history here in the United States, they've also been an important part of food culture in China, Japan, Indonesia, India and Africa. Sweet potato pies date back to the mid-1800's; candied sweet potatoes slathered in fluffy marshmallows didn't come along until around 1920.
