Nip's Tea and Herbs to Honor A Legacy

Recently we released Nip's Tea and while the ingredients were important to us, so was something else: Color.

Nipsey Hussle is a man who had an affinity for blue, it's the color rep'd by his gang, and one I've seen him wear the most. And that's why I started the blend with Chicory Root, the root of the very beautiful blue flower Chicory. But from there, I realized I could do more and go further. Selecting herbs, not just based on their medicinal properties, but also based on color symbolism.

Let us know what you think of our latest experiment with herbs and color.
