Details

For at least a thousand years people have added spices to their food. And, although it may seem counter-intuitive given the steamy climate of tropical countries, almost invariably it were the inhabitants of these countries who first discovered the benefits of spicing up their cuisine. Modern research has shown that adding spice to food helps prolong its lifespan and can even help kill off bacteria in fresh fruits and vegetables. As well, due to a bodily function known as “gustatory sweating”, fiery foods actually help cool the body down! But aside from all the scientific mumbo-jumbo, spices make food taste great right? So in keeping with tropical culinary tradition, we've blended this tea with tropical fruit flavorings like Papaya and Mango, and spiced them up with cinnamon and cloves for a taste that is truly magical. Brew a pot and enjoy this savory infusion. Also makes a very interesting iced tea.
