It has a delicate Meyer lemon taste, with slight hint of sweet ginger, and very aromatic floral fragrance. Smooth and fragrant when steeped as a simple cup of tea, soft mouthfeel and clean finish. Greatly uplifting, yet naturally caffeine free.

Considered a remedy for all ills by the ancient Egyptians, this golden herb remains a modern favorite to promote calm and relieve anxiety.

This caffeine free herbal infusion is delicious served with honey.

Very gentle to the palate, and naturally caffeine free.
