Blender's Notes:

We set out as a goal to create a powerhouse adaptogenic herbal chai — free of caffeine and any flavorings, fruits, or florals. The result of this year-long development process is simple in name only. This complex blend of twelve adaptogens is both amazingly delicious and fantastically grounding. Its aroma is honeyed and spicy. The flavor is refreshing, sweet and well-rounded, yet earthy. Its sweet peppery notes may remind you of a gingersnap cookie. There’s a slight smokiness coated with notes of maple syrup. The resulting infusion has tons of body and soothing throat-coating character. Most importantly, this adaptogenic herbal tea is formulated with the goal of helping you find your center, whatever the circumstances.

Tea Benefits

 

Adaptogens are natural, botanical substances that balance, restore and protect the body from physical, biochemical and mental stress. Their differentiating strength is that they produce what’s called a “non-specific” response. For example, if the stress your body encounters tends to spin you up, the adaptogenic response will help keep you grounded. Conversely, if the stressor brings the body down, the adaptogen’s effect would be to provide a lift. They focus on regulating the adrenal glands, where stress hormones are produced. This is key to how they help maintain energy, reduce stress fatigue, and keep us centered. Below are some of the traditional uses for each of the twelve ingredients:

Roasted Dandelion Root: Rich in Vitamin A, dandelion is commonly used to stimulate digestion and in support of the body’s natural detoxification and anti-inflammation processes. [3]

Chaga mushrooms: Rich in fiber and nutrients including melanin and Vitamin D, Chaga has historically been used to support a healthy immune system. [4]

Ashwagandha: An important herb known for promoting vitality in traditional Ayurveda. Though caffeine-free, it is commonly used as an energy, cognition, and mood booster. [5]

Rhodiola: One of the strongest adaptogens, traditionally used in nordic and Russian folk medicine to ward off fatigue and improve mood and cognitive performance. [6]

Cardamom Seeds: Used for centuries in Ayurveda to improve mood, promote relaxation, as well as to support digestion and respiratory health.   

Cinnamon: Antioxidant-rich and traditionally used to support balancing blood sugar levels. [7]

Slippery Elm: A mucous-promoting herb, it has been traditionally used as a throat soother, and to promote healthy bowel tissue.  

Cascara Shells: A powerful natural source of antioxidants, these berry shells increase perceived energy and may promote a healthy brain, memory, and mood. 

Ginger: Traditionally used to support digestion and relieve symptoms of nausea. [8]

Raw Cacao Nibs: Rich in antioxidants and flavonoids, they may help stimulate the brain, alertness, and promote an improved sense of well-being.

Cloves: In Chinese and Ayurvedic traditional medicine, clove was used as an aphrodisiac, as well as to improve oral health and breath.

Maca: Sought after for is reputed libido, fertility, mood, and memory-boosting effects. Scientific research on this herb from the Peruvian highlands has focused on its efficacy in supporting sexual function and as a promising adaptogen in mitigating the effects of UV radiation and osteoarthritis. [9]
