Students and athletes alike have looked to tea to boost endurance and immunity, as well to help with hydration and, when needed, a kick from caffeine. The loose leaf tea products in the Loose Tea Starter Set include: Climber’s High, Chocolate Cherry Bomb and Red Rocks. These handcrafted teas are packed in mini travel tins, with loose tea steeping guidelines and health benefits by tea type.

With this zero-calorie treat, you can turn off the brain, turn on the senses, and enjoy the flavor of rich, chocolate covered cherries. Handcrafted from two black teas this gourmet cherry delight is a dessert tea that can be enjoyed even for breakfast. With a base of black leaf teas from India and China, this blend is well-balanced and strong enough for milk and sugar.

Red Rocks helps to soothe the mind with its unique blend of rooibos, vanilla and almond. Rooibos is full of antioxidants and healthy minerals such as calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron, zinc, copper, and fluoride. With a honey-like liquor and essential vitamins and minerals, Red Rocks is a caffeine-free way recharge your batteries when stress levels start to rise.
