Kick up the Bum
I don't drink much black tea but Kick up the Bum is one of my favourites, with all the lemongrass and orange peel, it has a strong citrusy flavour without being too sharp.
The black tea from Assam in this blend is a very special hand-rolled whole-leaf tea from a small tea growers cooperative.
The Guarana will give you the stimulating effects of caffeine without the disadvantages.
Kick up the bum is basically a healthy alternative to a cup of coffee and much more nutritious.

Infuse 1 or 2 heaped teaspoons in water heated at 90-100°c, for 8-10 minutes.
Whole leaves take longer to infuse but it is definitively worth it!
Crush or grind the herbs prior to use.
Make sure that all ingredients are well mixed. Lighter particles and powders tend to sink at the bottom of the packet.
Do not leave herbs to steep in water as this may result in a slightly bitter infusion.
