THE STORY OF DETOX, CLEANSE AND REFRESH
Modern life, in many ways, is toxic. We take for granted that much of our day-to-day life isn't great for the body, spirit and mind. From air pollution to alcohol, processed food to smartphones, our bodies are bombarded by negative inputs every time we leave the house. No wonder the news is filled with stories about people stepping back to go on a cleanse - our brains and bodies need a break!
To do our part, we've crafted Cleanse & Refresh, an herbal tea with detoxification in mind. Borrowing from the ancient practices of Ayurveda, Native American remedies and sacred herbology, we've sourced a list of ingredients that reads like a what's what of detoxifying herbs. Let's examine a few of them.
Tulsi, commonly known as holy basil, is not only a source of Vitamin K, important for transporting calcium through the body, it is also said to aid the digestive system and promote weight loss. Licorice is also said to relieve digestive issues, along with ginger and Burdock root, considered by some natural health practitioners, to function as twin powerhouses when it comes to easing nausea. Additionally, Cleanse & Refresh also incorporates a selection of antioxidant rich flower petals, including Dandelion, said to aid in cleansing the liver.

BREWING INSTRUCTIONS FOR HOT TEA: Infuse one slightly heaping teaspoon for each 8 ounce cup with water brought to a rolling boil (85 degrees Celcius) for 3-7 minutes.
Infuse 6 slightly heaping teaspoons of tea with 1 1/4 cups of boiling water for 7 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water, and add the infused tea, straining the leaves, to the pitcher. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Add lemon and sweeten to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to increase the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water.
Infuse 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea with 6 ounces of boiling water for 7 minutes. Add the tea to a 12 ounce glass, filled with ice, straining the leaves. Add hot tea to a 12oz/375ml acrylic glass filled with ice, straining the tea or removing the bags. Add lemon and sweeten to taste.
NUMBER OF CUPS: 15-20 cups from each 50 grams of tea, with a single use of the leaves. Loose leaf tea is traditionally infused 3 times, with a different flavor profile following each infusion. Accordingly, each 50 gram bag can make up to 60 cups of tea.
