We are extremely excited to offer this *hot* new organic herbal tea. Naturally caffeine-free, this loose leaf tisane packs a punch! With an herbaceous nose of rosemary, citrus, and ginger, its aroma reminds of a fragrant cocktail. But, once it is consumed you’ll be surprised by the warming and lingering heat! The liquor starts off mellow and sweet and then WHAM -- the chili sets in to become the predominant flavor and you are not drinking a simple herbal tea, but along for a spicy, hot thrilling ride!  Add a little honey to create a sweet and spicy organic tea concoction.

Ingredients: organic South African green rooibos, organic ginger root, organic lemon peel, organic rosemary, organic cloves, and organic chili pepper


Serving Size: one teaspoon per 8 oz cup of water

  1. My favorite!

    Posted by OKBlond on 31st Jan 2015

    Purchased as a sample 1st; immediately go back on line to purchase the largest bag available after that 1st cup! This is probably one of the best herbal Tisanes I've ever had! I through in a few pieces of dried ginger root into my infuser (I love ginger!). Hope they never discontinue this! It's awesome!! I make refrigerator tea for my husband with this every night. I make my own tea bags; add a couple TBS's of tea, few pieces of dried root, fill up his 20 oz to go tea container, throw in my homemade tea bag with a spoon of honey & tah dah!! Next morning he has his tea to take to work!

    I'm completely impressed with everything I've purchased from Arbor teas! There's no doubt this is a class act company with high quality teas; you can see it in the infuser!

    I love Arbor teas! Absolutely LOVE the plum Oolong, the Marsala Chai's both regular and decaf, along with quiet a few of the fab black teas.

    If you like ginger with a little kick! try this; you'll love it!!

  2. Very Distinctive Tea!

    Posted by Patricia on 13th Jan 2015

    Lots of flavor here. Love the warmth and spice, but there is also a lovely sweet undertone. Great tea for a winter evening.

  3. Bought for my hubby, HE LOVED IT!!

    Posted by Bonnie R. on 6th Jan 2015

    This was bought for my husband, he went absolutely nuts over this blend! I'm back to buy a large bag before the sample runs out; he's in love!

  4. The "Cure" for the Common Cold

    Posted by Tammy on 11th Dec 2014

    Let me start by saying I do not like spicy food. However, I just had to try this. I took the suggestion to add a little honey and I have to say that I love it. I tend to have problems with my sinuses and cold and this works wonders. I also agree with another reviewer who said this works great as an afternoon pick me up.

  5. Big Ginger Taste!

    Posted by Robin K. on 10th Dec 2014

    If you love ginger, you must try this tea! It smells like ginger snaps baking. The taste is very gingery, quickly followed by heat, with a peppery finish. The sensation in your mouth is similar to a sip of cognac, -very warming. A second steeping loses much of the heat, but maintains a nice ginger flavor. I'm not a big fan of herbal teas, but I could see keeping some of this on hand.

  6. Excellent For a Sore Throat!!!!

    Posted by Jason S. on 6th Nov 2014

    This tea WILL warm you up if your cold.. Also if your suffering from seasonal allergies or a sore throat, this is definitely a tea you want to have close by. It truly works better than anything for opening my head, easing my tummy, and soothing my throat. The ginger makes this tea pop with aroma and flavor. This tea is definitely worth trying.

  7. Nice & Spicy

    Posted by Nadia B. on 19th Sep 2014

    This has a nice kick! I was looking for a spicy cool-weather tea other than just chai teas. The spiciness is strong enough to keep you wanting to sip more. It has a really good ginger & lemon taste at first, followed by a hot kick after. Would purchase this again for sure.

  8. A blast of freshness.....

    Posted by Susangrin on 10th May 2014

    really incredible tea that wakes up your taste buds and makes them smile. By far the most flavorful herbal tea I've ever tried. Very addicting. I'm truly in love with this tea!!!

  9. WOW!

    Posted by Janet Binion on 22nd Apr 2014

    If you love hot, spicy food like I do, this is your herbal tea. I am a fan of Irish Breakfast tea, the strongest, black tea I've found, so my taste buds respond to most herbal teas with the sensation that they're better than plain hot water, but only just. Now my taste buds can rejoice in this blend of ginger, citrus, rosemary and the punch of chili late in the day without my staring at the ceiling half the night wishing I hadn't had that last cup of tea.


We at Arbor Teas firmly believe that tea should be brewed to suit your personal taste. With that being said, here are some recommendations to get you started, but please remember you can make adjustments based on your own personal taste.

There are three main considerations when brewing tea: quantity of tea, water temperature and steeping time.


Quantity of tea: one teaspoon per 8 oz cup of water


Water temperature: use water that has been heated to a full rolling boil (212° F)


Steeping time: 5-7 minutes

Tip #1: Use fresh water whenever possible - water that has been sitting in your kettle overnight may impart a flat or stale taste to your tea. Be careful not to boil your water for too long. Over boiled water can sometimes impart an unwanted taste.

Tip #2: Herbal teas, unlike tea from the plant camellia sinensis, do not get astringent with longer brew times. So if you happen to steep longer than 7 minutes, don’t worry! Your herbal tea will gain more flavor, but it will never become astringent!
