BLESSED BITTERS – SPICED CHAI DIGESTIVE BITTERS
POTENT DIGESTIVE SUPPORT (AND ADDS A CHEEKY SPARK TO COCKTAILS)
Made by Temptress Apothecary & Plants + Passion
Of all the flavours to grace our taste buds (sweet, sour, bitter, salty, umami and perhaps oleogustus or fattiness) there is perhaps none as fascinating than that of bitterness. Yet it is one of the primary tastes that is missing from our diets, fiercely taken from us by the industrial food system. We have all but forgotten the immense pleasure and the immeasurable everyday benefits of bitterness.
In short, bitterness stimulates the ‘bitter reflex’ in the body and in doing so big health magic happens, reducing the symptoms of:
- poor digestion such as gas and bloating, constipation, loose stools and food allergies
- enhances vitamin and mineral absorption
- promotes balanced blood sugar levels
- protects the liver and strengthens its eliminatory function
- heals inflammatory damage to the gut wall
With such admiration in mind, Blessed Bitters offers a generous amount of benevolent and effective bittering ingredients including Dandelion root, Gentian root, Feverfew, Globe Artichoke and Quandong. We then temper the bitterness with a number of ingredients that support the bitters’ digestive mission, including soothing herbs such as Hawthorn Berry and aromatic herbs including Cinnamon, Cardamom, Ginger and Vanilla, and round out the flavour with a splash of Maple Syrup and Vegetable glycerine. Blessed Bitters enlivens meals by generously assisting with the overconsumption of feasting and can be used all-year-round tonic.
Directions: 1 dropper taken directly into the mouth and under tongue, holding it there before slowly swallowing. This tincture can also be added to a little water before you eat, or to smoothies and juices. And yes, of course, Blessed Bitters can add a dash of spark to your favourite cocktails and plays perfectly with most dark spirits, rums and tequilas.
Ingredients: Dandelion Root, Ginger root, Turmeric root, Hibiscus, Hawthorn berries, Gentian, Feverfew, Globe Artichoke, Cinnamon, Cardamom, All spice, Nutmeg, Vanilla, Quandong, Maple Syrup, Vegetable glycerine (non-soy).
