The secret herbal magic of Roasted Dandelion root, Cacao, Cinnamon, Damiana, and Sassafras.

Roasted Dandelion root: grounding and earthy with detoxing benefits

Dandelions are one of the most recognizable wild edibles in the world. Normally, this plant’s leaves are harvested and consumed as a nutritious salad green.

However, we blend Dandelion’s roots in this herbal coffee replacement for their earthy and grounding flavor. We roast our roots in house at the perfect time and temperature—much like how coffee beans are roasted—for a bitter, but earthy flavor.

Dandelion root is often used in herbal medicine to cleanse the liver, so expect a light detox from this medicinal herb.

Cacao: everyone's favorite antioxidant 

Cacao is the precursor for one of our favorite snacks: chocolate. Cacao is the dried and fully fermented seed of the Theobroma cacao plant. It's naturally caffeinated, incredibly medicinal, and packed with antioxidants. Cacao nibs offer a natural energy boost. The complex unsweetened chocolatey flavor blends with the floral notes of this herbal coffee replacement.

Damiana: an uplifting aphrodisiac 

Damiana is an an herbal aphrodisiac that has been used to set the mood for centuries. It's used to promote an uplifting sensation throughout the body. It can heighten sensations of drive and arousal. This leaf offers a unique and addicting sweet earthy floral flavor to the tea blend. Here's some more fun about Damiana:

  • Damiana is an abundant shrub from Central America
  • It has an infectiously sweet smell and flavor that makes you smile
  • Damiana has a fuzzy texture, which makes it so delightful to blend into teas or craft into herbal smoking blends.
  • We love Damiana, that's why we use it in our Lover's Smoke herbal smoking blend and herbal joints

Cinnamon: naturally energizing with spiced flavor

Cinnamon is a spice that is made from the inner bark of trees scientifically known as Cinnamomum. It has been used as an ingredient throughout history, dating back as far as Ancient Egypt. It's loaded with antioxidants, has anti-inflammatory properties, and has the potential to fight infections, lower blood sugar, and so much more.

Young Sassafras twigs: wild, local, and fruity.

It's hard to describe the unique flavor of Sassafras. Think of a leaf with notes of lemon, root beer, and fruit loops. Yes, fruit loops! This wild, abundant, and native tree was traditionally made into tea and used by Native Americans as a tonic (blood purifier).

We add young Sassafras twigs in this blend for its delicious flavor, but its recognized across the globe for a wealth of medicinal and practical uses. Its leaves have mucilaginous qualities. Fun fact: Sassafras' root was once used to make root beer! Sassafras has antibacterial qualities and we're in love with its flavor. Here's some more fun about Sassafras:

Sassafras is a native North American plant that has edible leaves, bark, and roots. 

  • Sassafras is an abundant native tree from North America
  • When fresh, it has an infectiously delicious flavor that makes you smile
  • Our Sassafras is fresh, regionally-harvested & wildcrafted, unlike others you may find from major suppliers
