What's in Twinings Inner Peace?

Twining Inner Peace tea is blended with 3 main ingredients – rooibos, roasted chicory root and ashwagandha root – and natural flavourings – fig, vanilla and others.

Rooibos and vanilla are a pair. These flavours that complement each other beautifully and they've been around for some time. But rooibos and fig? That's a whole new story.

Fig has not been used as an ingredient or as a flavour in tea blends much until recently. Today, it's a trending flavour that goes well will many tea types. Fig flavour goes exceptionally well with red rooibos tea, that's naturally sweet and earthy.

Figs are naturally quite sweet and can be paired with a whole range of foods – from fruits to cheese, nuts and herbs.

Adaptogen in Twinings Inner Peace blend is ashwagandha or Withania somnifera, used in Indian Ayurveda. There's a lot of research related to this adaptogen, and most of it is regarding the stress-relieving properties. Although different parts of the plant can be used as an herbal medicine, only the root is used for stress management. Studies suggest ashwagandha may help relieve anxiety and reduce stress caused by physical activity and provide a whole range of other benefits (1).

How does it taste?

Let's get back to brewing. Since this is a red rooibos blend, use a freshly boiled water and steep one tea bag in a cup of water for 3 minutes. Rooibos will never become bitter, even if you over-brew it.

Although the scent may make you think this tea is going to be sweet, it's quite light. Red rooibos and fig notes are predominant, and if you worry about the flavour of ashwagandha, this blend incorporates it really well. It's present, but far from overpowering.
