Sunwïnk Herbal Tonics

Sunwïnk is a herbal tonic company. Herbal tonics are delicious drinks that get all of their flavor and benefits from herbs (like hibiscus and elderberries). This means, they only have 35-45 calories and 6-7 grams of sugar. The best part - each recipe is inspired by a real woman and the herbs she used growing up. We're starting with three flavors - Immune-Boost {Berry}, Detox {Ginger}, and De-Stress {Hibiscus}.

The Simple Ingredients in Our Herbal Tonics

  • De-Stress {Hibiscus}: ashwagandha, tulsi, lemon balm, hibiscus, cardamom, lime juice, lemon juice, honey, and monk fruit 
  • Detox {Ginger}: ginger root, dandelion root, cherry stems, lemon balm, cinnamon, lime juice, lemon juice, ginger extract, honey, and monk fruit
  • Immune-Boost {Berry}: elderberry, goji berry, astragalus, rose hips, hibiscus, ginger, cinnamon, lime juice, lemon juice, honey, and monk fruit 

Other important information:

  • 12 oz / 354 mL 
  •  35-45 calories and 6-7 grams of sugar 
  •  No artificial sweeteners, colors, flavors, or preservatives 
  • Only non-GMO ingredients used; working toward certification 
  • Only organic ingredients used (except for cherry stems); working toward certification

The Women Who Inspired the Drinks

Many of our friends grew up drinking herbal teas and tonics. We created sunwïnk because we loved the idea of herbal health being a part of everyone's daily life. Each of our herbal tonics is inspired by a real woman and herbs she used growing up. We were so inspired by their stories that we recorded podcast interviews where the women were interviewed by their daughters and nieces. You can listen to their stories here.

Our Difference

Each of our herbal tonics is brewed with 12 grams of herbs - that is a lot more than most beverages that use herbs and tea leaves. Because our herb-to-water ratio is so high, we brew the herbs at a brewery. Immediately after, we take the brews to a second facility to add the honey, monk fruit, lemon juice, and lime juice. This two-step process takes a little extra time, but it's necessary to get the optimal flavor and benefits from the herbs! In case you were wondering, this is what 12 grams of herbs looks like - 

Why We Need Your Support

We just completed our first test production run (and it tastes delicious!). It's been a long journey since we began formulating recipes in a dorm kitchen. However, a full production run costs a lot of money. We need your support to help cover the ingredient and labor costs of a full production run.

Our Rewards 

 

 

 

 

Meet Eliza, the sunwïnk founder 

 Work stress was taking a toll on Eliza's health. She had spent five years working 60 to 80 hour weeks, and she struggled to make time for a daily wellness routine. She was finishing her MBA and was supposed to start working for a big food company...

Meanwhile Eliza's little sister was studying herbalism. She gave Eliza some elderberry syrup for a cold. Eliza was amazed at how good she felt. She started talking to her friends about the herbal remedies they used growing up...

Friends from India, Turkey, and China all shared their herbal remedies. However, many of these remedies involved brewing herbs on the stove for 30 minutes. It didn't seem realistic for most people to make these teas and tonics everyday...

So, Eliza thought - what if she created drinks inspired by her friends' herbal recipes? Sunwïnk was born! Delicious herbal tonics that were easy to enjoy on the go - daily wellness, simplified.

Our hope is to help make herbal health part of everyone's daily life. Kickstarter, we're so thankful for your support!

Risks and challenges

We have already completed a test production run (and it tastes delicious!). However, production can sometimes take longer than expected. We are going to do our best to get your sunwïnks out to you as soon as possible!
