You mean, other than delicious? Our Jamaican tea is an herbal blend that’s been in the family for centuries. It’s gushing with island flavor and infused with hibiscus, rosehips, and mint. Depending on the batch, we sweeten it with rich, natural honey, all-natural cane sugar, or cold-pressed cane juice. Except for unsweetened, which is all flavor.
All of our drinks at Ellis Isle contain hibiscus, which is known to lower high blood pressure. They’re also rich with immunity-boosting antioxidants and the all-natural cold-pressed cane juice used in Wet Shuga helps replenish your body with hydrating electrolytes.
Our cold-pressed cane juice is a natural alternative to sugar. To source it, we start with real stalks of sugar cane grass and squeeze out all the moisture. The resulting juice is naturally sweet and loaded with nutrients like antioxidants and electrolytes. Currently, we use it in our Wet Shuga recipe for a drink that’s as nutritious as it is delicious.
Each batch begins the same. We start by filling large teabags with our all-natural blend of herbs and hand-steep them in industrial-size boiling kettles. It’s a lot like making tea at home, just way bigger. When the tea is done steeping, we extract the herbs and, if necessary, sweeten with natural honey, all-natural cane sugar, or cold-pressed cane juice.
That gorgeous red color comes straight from the hibiscus flowers that we steep. As soon as those petals hit the water, the vibrant color and rich flavors start to spread.
None. All of our drinks are based on an herbal tea blend and contain no caffeine.
Good news! Wet Shuga and Unsweet Ellis Isle Tea are both vegan. However, the original Ellis Isle Tea is NOT, since the recipe calls for honey.
All of our bottled beverages have a shelf life of six months.
All of our drinks are bottled in a state-of-the-art production facility in Detroit, MI.
Unsweet Ellis Isle Tea is infused with the same exotic blend of natural hibiscus, rosehips and mint used in our other drinks. It’s all the flavor without the honey, cane sugar or cold-pressed cane juice.
Nope. Unsweet Ellis Isle Tea is only rich in flavor, a blend of natural herbs and water.
