LEMONGRASS GINGER TEA FOR BOOSTING YOUR HEALTH

Lemongrass ginger tea does more than just making you feel good from within. And isn’t that exactly what we need during the January month. Here in South Africa we are enjoying prime time summer, whilst you folks on the other side of the world are freezing in winter. But it actually doesn’t matter where you stay, as our lemongrass Ginger blend is not only a beautiful tea to drink hot, but also lovely as an iced tea.

It’s a tea close to my heart, as it’s currently the only tea in our assortment sourced from my birth country. We partnered with Amba Estate which is a beautiful small-scale organic tea estate in Ella, Sri-Lanka. During our travels we found the idyllic estate by surprise, but we immediately fell in love.

Not only does Amba focus on natural farming practices and truly unique, artisanal teas. They also pay their employees a fair and equal salary, including a share in profits. Plus these valued workers benefit from long-term employment and ongoing training. Doesn’t that just sound amazing?

So why is lemongrass such a healthy drink I hear you think..?

Ginger and lemongrass are two of the best food ingredients for digestion aid and have anti-inflammatory properties. Plus may also have the potential to lower  risk of chronic diseases, such as soothe stomach, but they have many more health benefits:
