Description

We drew upon only two ingredients to conjure Bergamot Sarsaparilla. Both herbs are powerhouses with long histories of medicinal use. South Indian Sarsaparilla, also known as Hemidesmus indicus (false sarsaparilla), has been used as an anti-inflammatory tonic, blood cleanser and vitality herb since ancient times. Traditionally, this root has been applied as a synergist to enhance digestion and for detoxification.It is considered a sacred herb in Ayurveda and is a Rasayana herb, which in Sanskrit means "Path of Essence". Rasayana refers to vitality, enhancement of health, and overall wellness and is a specialized segment of Ayurveda.

South Indian Sarsaparilla has higher contents of cinnamon, vanilla and cola aromatic compounds, and is high in antioxidants. It is perhaps best known as the key ingredient of root beer. Though there are many concerns in reference to Smilax aristolochiifolia, Mexican Sarsaparilla or Smilax ornate, Jamaican sarsaparilla for liver health, the South Indian variety could be considered a safer option and is used widely in herbal teas and beverages.

Bergamot essential oil is not an uncommon ingredient for Earl Grey tea blends but the whole dried and ground fruit certainly is. We source bergamot peels for the floral, zesty, and complex citrusy aroma housed in the rind of the fruit. Bergamot Citrus fruit has been studied for its functions of anti-bacterial, anti-viral and high antioxidant activity for health. The uplifting aroma of this botanical blend brings energy, vitality, detox and an amazing flavor in a hot or iced tea brew.
