Steep Echo is a collection of the finest all-natural olive leaf teas. Their line is made with olive tea leaves, leaving you with unique flavors that encourage you to drink up and come back for more.  The compound Oleuropein makes this type of tea richer in nutrients, powerful antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory properties than green or black tea.

Check out the caffeine-free collection:

  • Ascent – A refreshing blend of antioxidant-rich organic olive leaf mingled with the spice of cinnamon that finishes with the smooth touch of vanilla and monk fruit. 
  • Bloom – Leads with the fresh taste of herbs and peppermint and provides tasty hints of cranberry and licorice root, created to strengthen immune defenses and soothe throats during the cold and allergy season. 
  • Hush – Employed as a digestive aid, Hush restores the spirit with a calming blend of organic olive leaf and the finest botanicals that soothe and aid in healthy digestion. 
  • Repose – This floral blend is light-bodied, luxurious in smell, feel, and taste, and promotes rest and relaxation.

(And if you are drinking, they make a great mixer!) Mocktail Club has four flavors to choose from: 

  • Havana Twist is like a reimagined Mojito with Cucumber, mint, lime, apple cider vinegar and cardamom & cloves – and the feeling we evoke is summer on a tropical beach.

  • Manhattan Berry is made with blackberry, pear, apple cider vinegar and ginger and tastes like a reimagined Berry Mule. 
  • Capri Spritz is made with pomegranate, cranberry, apple cider vinegar and lemongrass with a hint of bitter and tastes more similar to an Aperol Spritz.

Crushed Pearl Translucent Setting Powder

This setting powder layers beautifully over makeup and will help to keep your foundation in place. It gives your skin a matte and silky finish, reduces shine, and conceals the look of pores. What makes this light and soft setting powder extra special is that it is actually very beneficial for your skin. Unlike other conventional setting powders, which primarily consist of chemical ingredients like talc, pearl powder contains amino acids. Amino acids stimulate skin cells to produce collagen, promote cellular repair and hydration, and protect skin from pollution and outside elements. These proteins give your skin a glowing appearance. In traditional Indian and Chinese medicine (or Ayurveda), pearl powder is held in high regard for its adaptogenic, calming, and anti-aging benefits. Size: 1oz (30ml)
