Our Fortify Chai blend is made with premium green tea, potent holy basil (tulsi) and freshly ground selected spices—these ingredients have been well researched and documented by scientists to provide powerful restorative benefits such as balance hormones, improve immunity, combat stress, anti-depression properties amongst various others.
Fortify blend is our contemporary take on the traditional “golden milk” beverage. Strong-flavoured and robust spices like turmeric, ginger and black pepper are foreign to most western palettes and may not be easily enjoyed. Our Fortify, ginger turmeric tonic, is handcrafted and masterfully created to release its uplifting characteristics and nuanced aromas, simply steep this in hot water like any of our other chai blends.
For us, this warming blend is designed for health and as a bonus, is sure to ease your mind and body. Fortify can be enjoyed as a pleasant evening delight oras a tranquil pause at any time of day.
