Feeling sluggish in body or mind? Or craving a sugary treat? This restorative tonic has a dessert-like taste that is a hit with all age groups.
It’s perfect for springtime, anytime you need a caffeine-free lift, or when you’ve been eating (or drinking) fatty or rich foods, or having alcohol—all of which are considered taxing for the liver. It features blueberries which are associated with benefits for the liver & in traditional medicine, springtime is an important time to support the liver. Ginger stimulates the circulation, has immune-boosting properties & has an enlivening effect. Our WILDBERRY WAVE tea contains rooibos, which contains a plethora of soothing, calming, anti-inflammatory minerals & antioxidants. Flax seed oil is also rich in anti-inflammatory elements & healthy fat, which supports energy levels.
Enjoy this as a mid-morning or mid-afternoon snack drink, or as a healthier dessert alternative to milkshakes or frozen drinks. It’s naturally sweet without added sugar, but if you feel the need for sweets, try adding a bit of maple syrup.

1. The night before, you can start a cold brew of the tea by simply putting the tea in a pitcher in fridge. Cold brewing involves steeping the tea leaves in cold water. Get the method for cold-brewing tea here. You can also use leftover tea in this recipe that has been chilled, or you can brew the tea in ½ cup hot water. When it’s done steeping, shake over ½ cup of ice to chill instantly.
2. Combine chilled tea with the remaining ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth.
