Decaf Tisanes and Herbals
In addition to a few decaf black tea blends, we offer the following caffeine-free alternatives…
Organic and Fair Trade Redbush
An herb gathered for centuries in the Cape area of South Africa by the Khoisan people, and first harvested by Western Imperialists at the beginning of the 20th Century, this beloved, highly health promoting tea has a rich body and fills the mouth like a black tea, but is an herbal and is naturally caffeine free. In fact, it is cultivated and processed in the same way as tea, though it is an herbal tisane. Tiny red-brown needles with a sweet, earthy and slightly fruity flavor produce a brick-red infusion in the cup.
ROOIBOS MASALA [roy-bus chai]
For a totally herbal chai experience, try our blend of rooibos tea with our Masala spice of cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, clove, fennel, and orange peel. Served with warm local milk and Appalachian honey.
Just a touch of cinnamon is needed to create an inspiring, cheering and stimulating herbal experience.
ORGANIC TULSI BASIL
The “mother medecine of nature,” this enlivening herbal is fresh and popular. Grown in south India, Tulsi “holy basil” is sure to stimulate and awaken the crown chakra. Tulsi is exceptionally good for cleansing and immunity. It offers a slight spicy flavor. Drink for prosperity!
Organic Tulsi Basil simmered with local milk or soy milk. A rich, creamy infusion topped with cardamom! Similar to Chai Chai Chai!.
