Why this format?
As Indians, our days are incomplete without tea! It's the second most popular drink in the world, after water. For centuries now, sitting down with a cup of tea and sipping it slowly has been known to clear our minds.
At Ausum, we make functional teas that play a much bigger role in your healthy diet and help you go stress-free. While the format looks like tea because it's already a part of our daily lifestyle, these beverages provide essential plant-based nutrients needed to support your lifestyle. These infusions provide the comfort we seek when we feel stressed after working long hours and feel the urge to sip on a beverage.
Sip on, stress off. It’s that simple.
Teabag with a Tale
Two of the most popular materials used to create tea bags are nylon and paper.
In hot water, Nylon teabag releases 11.6 bn microplastics that are not meant for human consumption (Source: BBC) and takes an average of 30 to 40 years to decompose. (Source: The Hindu, 2022)
Paper teabags are treated with Epichlorohydrin, a chemical that’s also commonly used as a pesticide. Just like synthetics, they release toxins when dunked in boiling water.
Made with non-plastic, plant-based corn starch, Ausum teabags steep ZERO microplastics in your tea. These plant-based bags are 100% biodegradable and decompose within 3-6 months, without a trace! So sip on and breathe easy.
- Fill your cup with 200- 250 ml of hot water.
- Add teabag and steep for 3-4 minutes.
- Enjoy at any time of the day.
Functional teas are a great way to get some mindful minutes. Take a break from your desk, walk to the kitchen, turn on the kettle and give yourself a 2 min break while you wait to make your brew. Functional teas are calming and soothing, primarily due to their ingredients, but the physical warmth provided by the hot beverage has an emotional appeal. As the colours unfurl into your cup and the gentle aroma of natural ingredients tickle your senses, stress starts to fade away.

What is Rooibos?
Rooibos is a calorie-free, caffeine-free and naturally sweet South African shrub, also called ‘red bush’. It contains polyphenols, plant compounds that reduce the effect of stress on our body. It’s also known for its ability to lower blood sugar levels. It's pronounced as 'roy-buhs'.
What is Aspalathin?
Aspalathin is a natural compound found in Rooibos that works to increase glucose uptake and suppresses blood glucose spikes.
What are glucose spikes?
Blood sugar spikes are caused when a simple sugar known as glucose builds up in your bloodstream. For people with diabetes, this happens because of the body’s inability to properly use glucose.
Are there any side effects?
Made from 100% real Rooibos & Indian spices, this herbal blend has no side effects upon regular consumption. It’s caffeine-free, sugar-free, chemical-free and preservative-free.
