MAKES ONE PITCHER (8 cups)
Made in USA
What it is:
root + spring's Sweet Herbal Cooling Tea (also called Liang Cha or Lerng Cha) could be considered the Chinese version of the American South's sweet tea, but with tremendous benefits for your body.
This blend features six different herbs that cool the body and replenish its fluids when they are depleted. Longan fruit (Long Yan Rou), for example, has a long tradition of being used as a beauty tonic for Chinese women at the Imperial Court, and is still used today to beautify skin, eyes, and nails.
Another note of interest: the tea is naturally sweet because of Luo Han Guo, or dried monkfruit, which is 300 times sweeter than sugar but comes in at zero on the glycemic index and has zero calories and zero carbs!... and thanks to Luo Han Guo's amazing health benefits of cough relief, colon cleansing, and weight loss, this Chinese herb has long been hailed as "the immortals’ fruit”.
