Kava Bar:   Luminescence imports kava kava from the Big Island, Hawaii.  The kava is a cold water extraction from the root.   Lizzie also prepares the kava with Raw Cacao and Cinnamon for a delicious taste and added health benefits.

Kava is excellent before or after a spa treatment as it works with your central nervous system to relax the mind and body.  It is also an anti-inflammatory.

Friends also love to gather at Luminescence to share kava and talk story.

Black Teas

Earl Grey Earl Grey is a British tea classic and the most popular tea of the Western World. This citrus-scented tea blend dates back to the 19th Century Sino-British trade of opium, tea, silk and porcelain. Our bestselling Organic Earl Grey blends bold-flavored Yunnan Dian Hong harvested from antique tea trees with natural Bergamot citrus from Southern Italy. It is the perfect organic blend of America’s most popular tea and is frequently complimented as the best Earl Grey ever.

 Ingredients: Organic Fair Trade Certified™ black tea and natural essential bergamot oil. Origin: Rishi Blend.
  Lemongrass Black This blend of select Dian Hong OP (orange pekoe) black tea cured with our special lemongrass is semi-brisk with a refreshing citron flavor and floral aroma.

Ingredients: Organic Fair Trade Certified™ black tea, Organic lemongrass and natural essential oil of lemon. Origin: Rishi Blend.
  Masala Chai

A robust and full-flavored black tea blended with our traditional Indian Masala spices. The bold flavor of our select shade-grown black tea presents full notes of cardamom, ginger and clove that is zesty and stimulating. Masala Chai should be brewed strong and served sweet with steamed milk and sugar.

Ingredients: Organic Fair Trade Certified™ black tea, Organic cardamom, Organic ginger, Organic cinnamon, Organic clove and Organic black pepper. Origin: Rishi Blend.
  Darjeeling First FlushDarjeeling teas are like no other. Many refer to Darjeeling as the "Champagne of Tea," as its character cannot be reproduced in regions outside of Darjeeling. Bright and lively mouthfeel with succulent flavor, this tea has a medium and elegant astringency with a long lasting after taste and complex aromatics of peaches, Muscat Grapes and tropical flowers.  Ingredients: Organic Fair Trade Certified™ black tea.  Origin: India.   Oolong Teas Wuyi Oolong The cliffs of Northern Fujian’s Wuyi Mountains are an important tea producing area with a long history. Oolong tea was first produced in Wuyi and this region’s soil type, microclimate and unique tea bushes produce exquisite oolong. Our Organic Wuyi Mountain Oolong has a smooth and rich body with a classical roasted aroma and sweet finish, Known as Wuyi Qi Lan or “Profound Orchid,” its flavor is quite unique with sweet notes of raisin sugar, honeysuckle and roasted barley.

Ingredients: Organic oolong tea. Origin: Fujian, China.
  Jasmine Pearl  Jasmine Pearl is often classified as a green tea, but the hand-rolling process causes oxidation, making it a pouchong (a lightly oxidized oolong tea). Our Jasmine Pearl Oolong was plucked from the tips and leaves of tea plants in Fujian, China and then infused with the essence of fresh jasmine flowers and coiled into tiny spheres of flavor and fragrance. Their hazy brew smells like sweet jasmine, fresh fruit and vanilla, and tastes richly floral. Smooth, sweet jasmine essence is balanced with flavors of vanilla and banana leaves. An enchantingly clean, sweet, lingering aftertaste makes this handmade, all-natural jasmine tea a fan favorite. Green Teas

 

Jasmine Green Organic green tea is blended with fresh jasmine blossoms by a traditional tea scenting process. The green tea absorbs the natural essence from fresh jasmine blossoms and imparts a sweet and soothing fragrance in every cup.

Ingredients: Organic Fair Trade Certified™ green tea and organic jasmine flowers. Origin: Hubei, China.
  Chinese Sencha Sencha green tea is traditionally produced in Japan, but our Chinese Sencha is a distinctive green tea that reflects its Japanese processing and Chinese terroir. Dry and wet, its flat leaves have a mossy, mineral aroma. The pale, clear, apple green brew has a mild aroma akin to the Spanish-moss-strews swamps of Louisiana. Its flavor is light, refreshing, nutty and almost minty, with delicate vegetal and mineral undertones. An aftertaste that’s green and clean hints at the grassier flavor of the second infusion.
White Teas Peach Blossom White teas hand blended with the natural essences of succulent peaches and tangerines. The flavor of sweet peaches is well balanced with accents of fresh citrus and white tea character.

Ingredients: Organic white tea, natural peach flavor, Organic osthmanthus flowers, natural essential oils of orange and tangerine, Organic jasmine flowers. Origin: Rishi Blend.
 White PeonyAlso known as “Bai Mu Dan,” White Peony is an excellent everyday white tea with a full flavor that appeals to many black-tea drinkers. Each spring in Fujian, China, it is hand-plucked as sets of two leaves for each bud, and then minimally processed for a nuanced flavor and high level of antioxidants. White Peony’s pale golden brew has complexly woodsy, floral aromas with hints of cocoa, peaches and apricots.   African Rooibos Jamaica Red  Organic Hibiscus Sabdariffa is more commonly known as “Jamaica Flowers.” Rishi’s master tea blenders unify the wonderful flavors of Organic Jamaica with Organic Rooibos and Organic Honey Bush to create this robust, fruity and deep red infusion. Jamaica flowers are known to have a high content of vitamin C and other health beneficial properties. The tart and deep flavor of Jamaica blends well with the refreshing and healthful nature of Rooibos. This original Rishi blend has a strong and fruity body that finishes with complex notes of mango, passion fruit and rare island spices.
Ingredients: Organic Fair Trade Certified™ rooibos, Organic hibiscus, Organic honey bush, Organic lemongrass, Organic schizandra berries, Organic rosehips, Organic licorice root, Organic orange peel, natural passion fruit flavor, natural essential oils of orange and tangerine, natural mango flavor and natural essential clove oil. Origin: Rishi Blend.
