  • Organic Super Ginger – This tea actually came about when our founder David had a cold. It was 2 in the morning and he kept drinking ginger tea to soothe his throat but he couldn’t get any sleep. It inspired him to create an herbal ginger tea, thus the birth of Super Ginger! This rooibos tea- which is naturally decaffeinated – is mixed with lots of ginger, green rooibos, black pepper, white pepper, and pink peppercorn. The mix of black pepper, white pepper, pink peppercorn and ginger provide the ultimate punch of spice to help clear the congested passages while soothing a sore throat.
