Crimson Elixir

What makes this tea an elixir? It's not just a delicious black tea blend. We chose the ingredients specifically for the benefits for health, skin and energy.

Black tea
You often hear about the benefits of green tea or oolong tea, but less frequently hear about black tea. Each variety comes from the same plant, so the benefits are pretty similar from one to another. Black tea is rich in antioxidants, flavonoids, polyphenols, L-theanine and some minerals. The benefits of these compounds are many. Some of the benefits found in black tea are reduced cholesterol, heart health benefits, digestion, reduction in blood pressure, lowers blood sugar, improves skin health, improve focus and concentration, lower stress levels and there are some studies showing even more amazing benefits.

Beetroot
Beetroot infused into tea contains antioxidants and nutrients such as iron, folic acid and vitamin C. This can lead to benefits such as clearer skin, softer hair, detoxification, boost iron levels, regulate blood pressure and is great during pregnancy due to folic acid and other nutrients.

Elderberries
Elderberries have long been used as a cold and flu tonic, as well as a syrup to deliciously flavour foods and beverages. Elderberries infused in tea provide flavonoids, antioxidants, vitamin A and C. The nutrients in elderberries could help with boosting immunity, helping with cold and flu symptoms, clearing skin, detoxification, boost vision health (thanks to vitamin A), and sooth digestive upset because of it's anti-inflammatory nature.

Hibiscus
Hibiscus is rich in antioxidants and vitamin C as well as other minerals and vitamins. It has been said to be excellent for lowering blood pressure, decreasing cholesterol, boosting metabolism and burning fat, clearing skin and detoxification as well as boosting immunity.

Directions

Make a concentrate!

If you've read our post on tea concentrates, you likely already know the drill. A tea concentrate makes enjoying your favourite teas quick and easy. You can prepare your concentrate at the beginning of the week and enjoy for up to 5 days when refrigerated. Add your concentrate to smoothies, water, milk or even oatmeal.

• Use 1 tsp of tea per 1 oz of hot water. • Infuse for 2 minutes in boiling water. • After infusing, filter the infusion through a fine mesh strainer. Tip: We also like to filter it a second time through a biodegradable paper coffee filter or clean cloth to get all the fine particles that may lead the tea dust to continue infusing.

Refrigerate for up to 5 days. Use 1/2 - 1 tsp of concentrate per serving, according to personal preferences.

Just okay… A bit too tart for me. I only tried it hot though. If you enjoy hibiscus and slightly tart I would give it a try!
