More than ever before, everyday life leaves most of us feeling the need to detox. A yoga class, a long walk in the woods, a shot of apple cider vinegar… Detoxification can cleanse our bodies, yes, but it is also a call to refocus our minds, intentions, and energy.
If you’ve indulged in too many summer cookouts or too many glasses of rosé, our Summer Detox has your back. What has quickly become our most popular drink at our Nashville tea bar, this drink features activated charcoal which is a highly adsorbent material with millions of tiny pores that attach to and remove poisons, chemicals, and intestinal gases. There’s also research that shows activated charcoal can fight bad breath, body odor, and even relieve skin ailments.
