14 February 2011 - 19:10Valentine’s Day After Dark
Cupid’s arrows are flying and sweet nothings are being whispered into many an ear.
Yep, it’s Valentine’s Day, and love is in the air.
And what better way to celebrate than with one of our most romantic blends, After Dark.
The naming of this blend has multiple meanings. First and most obvious, this is a caffeine-free blend that won’t give you the jitters, but there is another sexier meaning as well: One of the main ingredients in this blend, hibiscus, was once thought by local traditional practitioners in Western Nigeria to be a powerful aphrodisiac.
While this may seem like a stretch, science does seem to back it up - at least in a small way. A recent study shows that hibiscus does seem to have an anabolic effect similar to that of androgen a male hormone. In other words, it seems to help in protein synthesis that “enhances sexual abilities” in males.
So a happy Valentine is as easy as a cup of tea! Who knew?
