C.R.E.A.M.™ is an herbal tea blend made with a variety of mints, like peppermint and spearmint, to help support the body through nausea, upset stomach, headache, and more by the herbalist in charge at Ivy's Tea Co. 

Ivy's Tea Co. is a Hip-Hop inspired herbal tea company with hand blended herbal teas made in small batches to ensure optimal flavor, potency of the herbs, and freshness. 

This is essential to our blending process - it's why so many people love our blends.

C.R.E.A.M.™ is a blend of primarily Peppermint and Spearmint. On occasion, we use other mints, like apple mint, if we're able to source them from a local supplier. If we are using other mints like that, we'll be certain to update the product description on our website and also make announcements on our Twitter and Facebook pages. 

Below we highlight the benefits of the primary ingredients in C.R.E.A.M.™, peppermint and spearmint.

Peppermint and Spearmint are, for the sake of this blog, very similar herbs though they have a few slight differences.

Nonetheless, peppermint and spearmint are known for helping people through nausea, headaches, and irritable bowel syndrome. But why?

Well, peppermint and spearmint soothe smooth muscle lining of the digestive tract making it easier for the digestive system to break down foods. 

The herbs have also been used as a decongestant to help people with colds and congestion. Plus historically, the herbs have been used for performance enhancement, which is why we recommend mint tea as a very good morning tea as opposed to the regular "after dinner" tea it is known as for some.

The blend pairs perfectly with our peppermint honey, So Icy™.
