How Is Tealixir Made?
 
Our approach is similar to that of a craft-beer brewer. All ingredients are steeped directly in the boil, which allows for superior taste, a potent extraction of the medicinal benefits of the herbs and spices, and lots of creativity. Our water is purified through a reverse osmosis filtration system and our ingredients are all organic: black and green teas, dried fruits and flowers, herbs and spices and cane sugar. We utilize an ancient fermentation process that requires a living culture of bacteria and yeast resulting in a pro-biotic beverage rich in enzymes, vitamins and minerals and beneficial acids.
