Behind the Blend: Nip's Tea, Energizing Lemon Ginger Herbal Tea

Nip's Tea™ is a lemon-ginger herbal tea made to help energize the body by the herbalist in charge at Flyest. 

Flyest is a Hip-Hop inspired tea company with hand blended herbal teas made in small batches to ensure optimal flavor, potency of the herbs, and freshness. 

This is essential to our blending process - it's part of why so many love our blends.

Nip's Tea™ is a blend of Chicory Root, Lemon Peel, Ginger Root, Lemongrass, Coriander Seed, and Hibiscus. We initially made the blend at the request of our customers who wanted us to do something that celebrates the life of rapper-activist-entrepreneur Nipsey Hussle (RIP). Before we officially launched our Shop for Good program, we donated the proceeds from the sale of Nip's Tea™ to an accelerator bootcamp for Black entrepreneurs. Now, back to the herbal magic:

Below we highlight the benefits of the primary ingredients in Nip's Tea™: chicory root, ginger root, coriander seed, and hibiscus.

Chicory Root is the main ingredient in Nip's Tea™, though it is a ginger-lemon blend. Sorry for the confusion in advance. Before we get to the chicory root that we use medicinally, chicory is a beautiful blue flower and that's the main reason why we included the fragrant and robust herb in this tea. It's an herbal nod to Nipsey Hussle. 

Lemon peel is included for it's flavor and those bitters that we need in our diets, but often do not get!

Ginger root is warming and has been used to help support our bodies through nausea, motion sickness, morning sickness, and other digestive issues. 

Coriander seed is fragrant and antioxidant.

Hibiscus is beautiful, tart, and lowers blood pressure.

Nip's Tea™ pairs perfectly with our lemon flavored honey, Lemonade™.
