Our Cinnamon Tulsi Tea is chockfull of herbs that support your natural circadian rhythm, so it can be soothing and helpful for both waking up and getting peaceful rest, which is why we recommend it for both mornings and nighttime. That said, we find that our customers enjoy a variety of cadences for their tea rituals -- from twice a day for tea lovers to once a day or every other day for others. We recommend enjoying a cup of Tulsi Cinnamon at whatever cadence feels right to you -- the key being regularity.
Steep one tea sachet for up to 10 minutes in boiling water.
It's always a good idea to consult a pracitioner you trust if your are pregnant or breastfeeding before incorporating new herbs into your routine.

We only use the best available, whole ingredients and leave out anything unnecessary. We never use nuts, dairy, gluten, soy, or ingredients that have been genetically engineered, though our production facilities sometimes do. Even the brewer's yeast we use in the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie is gluten-free. How? Brewer’s yeast is typically grown on barley and therefore contains trace amounts of gluten, but we use a brewer’s yeast that is grown on beets. We also always choose organic when that's an option. We only let you taste things that we're obsessed with ourselves, and we hope you love them as much as we do. If you have questions about our ingredients, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All of the ingredients in our cookies and teas are organic. As of August 1, 2020, 50% of all seasonings will have certified organic ingredients. By the end of the year, they will be made with 100% organic ingredients. We have applied for organic certification for our products, but the certificate takes many months to process.
All of our products are free of gluten. For our Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, we source a special type of Brewer’s Yeast (usually grown on wheat) that has been grown on beets to ensure there are no trace elements of gluten for anyone who is sensitive or intolerant to gluten.
All of our products are free from the most common allergens, including milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, and soybeans. Our cookies are packaged in a facility that handles tree nuts.
All of our products are made with non-GMO ingredients. We strive to never use any ingredient that has been genetically modified.
All of our products are 100% vegan. We do not use any animal-derived ingredients, such as milk, eggs, or whey protein in our products.
Coconut sugar is a natural sweetener made from drying the sap of the coconut palm and grinding it into crystals. We love it because it has a much lower glycemic index than cane sugar (35 vs. 50) and includes many micronutrients (including potassium, magnesium, and zinc) that support hydration, digestion, and other vital functions. We prefer using coconut sugar to any artificial or refined sweeteners, and think that balanced sweetness makes certain foods taste awesome. When things taste good, they make us feel good which is also important for our health.
All of our products are shelf stable. To maximize shelf life and quality, please store our products in a dark, cool place. The cookies taste freshest if enjoyed within six weeks of purchase. They have a safe shelf life of one year, but they’ll probably disappear long before then :)
We are very passionate about getting people access to nutrient-dense foods that can support them through life moments. We are also grateful that our society already has a wealth of insight and research around science-backed foods that can help specific recovery processes. We’re starting by tapping into these existing studies (and experts) so that we can get these foods out into the world. Over time, we’re excited to gather enough resources to complete trials of our own. For now, here’s a little more detail about how we ensure we (and our Medical Advisory Board) feel great about recommending everything we create:
(1) When we create products, we select ingredients that have already been studied and have demonstrated efficacy for the desired use case. For example, flax seeds have been shown to support healthy menstrual cycles. In this case, the study on a food's efficacy has already been completed on our behalf.
(2) There is significantly less research completed on whole food ingredients (they are not patentable, so there’s not much incentive for anyone to fund these) as well as a lack of research studying women’s health needs. While the scientific community catches up on both fronts, we turn to biochemistry and physiology to understand the impacts of certain compounds and ingredients on our bodies. This means understanding a certain truth or pathway in the body and how a substance reliably interacts with it. For example, it is known that a category of foods called galactagogues (these include oats, flax, brewer’s yeast, fennel, and fenugreek) reliably stimulate prolactin and positively impact breast milk supply. There are no randomized controlled trials completed on this effect to date, but our understanding of these ingredients and their interaction with hormones confirms this effect.
One of the biggest challenges for a new mom can be getting restful sleep. Frequent awakenings through the night can leave one feeling drained and eager to reach for some caffeine to feel alert enough during the day to care for baby and self. We designed this tea with that pain point at the front of our minds. Adaptogenic herbs like Tulsi, Ashwagandha, and Shatavari have a wonderful calming effect on the nervous system that make it easier to feel even-keeled all day and relaxed enough in body and mind to sleep when the opportunity presents itself. Turns out that stress and lack of sleep are also major factors that contribute to trouble conceiving, thus these adaptogenic herbs can be supportive to anyone who is TTC, as well.
Our Medical Advisors feel that all of our products are safe for pregnant women (our CEO & Co-founder Astrid recently gave birth to a beautiful baby girl and often consumed Agni foods and teas during her pregnancy!).
The two ingredients we highlight when discussing/recommending these products to pregnant women are ashwagandha and shatavari (in the Tulsi Cinnamon Tea & in the Double Chocolate Chip Cookies). There are extremely limited studies on (1) pregnant women and (2) herbs, so it is possible to come across statements online like "there is no evidence that ashwagandha/shatavari is safe for pregnant women" when in reality, no clinical trials exist. Both of these herbs have a long history of consumption by pregnant women across the world for millennia. That said, we would encourage you, as with any product, to do what feels best for your body.
We will be coming out with a Prenatal Box soon in 2021 specifically tailored for pregnancy, but in the interim we highly recommend the Cinnamon Maca and Sesame Nori seasonings. They’re a great way to boost micronutrients in any meal made at home!
