Yarra Valley Tea Co - Liven Up Tea
Certified Organic Licorice Root, Yerba Mate, Spearmint and Star Anise.
Liven Up is a great option to coffee; sweet without the sugar and full of Verve without the after-effects of coffee.
Liven Up is a combination of Licorice root, Yerba Maté, Spearmint and Star Anise hand blended to produce a perfect marriage of sweet energy; this blend can be rebrewed several times if desired.
Licorice Root [the main ingredient of Liven Up tea] is the root of Glycyrrhiza glabra from which a slightly sweetened flavour can be obtained. The liquorice plant is a legume that is indigenous to southern Europe and remote parts of Asia. It is not botanically interrelated to star anise or fennel, which are foundations for similar sweet flavouring compounds. Glycyrrhizin has also demonstrated antiviral, antimicrobial, hepatoprotective and blood-pressure increasing effects. Liquorice Root found in Liven Up tea may be useful as anti-diabetic, anti-inflammatory and expectorant.
Yerba mate was first used and farmed by the Guaraní people and in some Tupí societies in the southern areas of Brazil prior to Europeans arriving. It adds a natural stimulant effect to Liven Up tea.
Bring fresh, cold water to the boil. Infuse 1 teaspoon of loose leaf tea or 1 tea bag per person in a cup or teapot. Allow to steep for 3-5 minutes for desired strength.
