Swift Kick in the Ginger Tea
Sometimes you need a Swift Kick in the Ginger to get your @ss out of your funk.
Whether you are feeling under the weather, blah, or totally disliking or bordering on hate (it is such a strong word) your cat/dog/kids/husband/wife/life/job/the color green/ fill in the blank (we don’t care what you write,) grab this tea.
It turns everything including those ugly step-sisters into Cinderella. Seriously. Yep-zero to hero.
A burst of ginger coupled with superman herb, alfalfa, blackberry leaves, lemon verbena, spearmint, marshmallow, orange peel, and hyssop just rocks your world.
Note: This tea is not an in-your-face type of ginger tea. All the herbs get a say with this blend so it is nice ginger blend without ginger being the predominant taste. You taste a burst of ginger at the end of each gulp.
And no, the tea will never taste like fresh ginger if that is what you are use to.
(Swift Kick in the Ginger used to be called Under the Weather. It was too fierce to be called UTW anymore. The tea has a life of its own. What can we say?)
Swift Kick in the Ginger Tea Servings
Loose Leaf Tea: Each can have 25-30 cups of tea and comes with a cotton tea bag. (Many people buy additional cotton bags so they can have a few around the house. No reason to cry over lost tea bags.)
Tea Bags: Each container has 12 tea bags.
We grow organically and when we run out of our herbs we source from certified organic farms. Our preference is to source from local or regional US herb farms.
Our Policy About Adding Artificial or Natural Flavors.
No can do.
We do not add artificial or natural ingredients to our teas. We let the herbs speak for themselves.
On the farm, our herbs run around naked…
But you knew that.
How to Brew Swift Kick in the Ginger Tea
Take one heaping teaspoon (or more to your liking. We know some of you like your tea strong.) Add it to the reusable bag or your handy tea strainer. Either rub the bag with your hands like you are rubbing Aladdin’s Genie’s lamp. (We like our cartoons.)
But if you want it spicy-you ginger lovers, you–use 2 teaspoons of tea leaves or add a slice of fresh ginger.
The rub motion releases the essential oils in the herbs to give you a better cup of tea. If you are using a tea strainer, simply rub the back of the herbs with a spoon.
Then pour boiling water over the bag and let it steep for 10 minutes.
If you forget about it, don’t fret, the tea is good cold too. (We forget about our tea all the time, and so we are used to drinking it cold. We are busy keeping those nude herbs under control.)
You can use the tea bag more than once. Throw the spent herbs in your food or smoothie. They still have benefits. Why not use them?
Don’t Forget. Always Close the Lid Tightly
We know. We sound like your mother.
As you know, we are pretty hyper about the quality of our herbs. (Sometimes to a fault.)
We want you to have the freshest cup to enjoy each time. So, please close the lid tightly to keep the air out.
Herbs like Superman have kryptonite. In this case, air, heat, and light are herbs’ enemies. Sadly, they will rob you of the enjoyment of the fantastic taste of the herbs.
Our herbs thank you. They work hard to make your tea taste good. They fight bugs, yeast, mold and whatever fury Mother Nature throws at them and keep on being awesome.
First sign of blah-grab some Swift Kick in the Ginger. You are too fabulous to be blah.
