Hawthorn berries are tiny fruits that grow on trees and shrubs belonging to the Crataegus genus.
Their berries are packed with nutrition and have a tart, tangy taste, and mild sweetness, ranging in colour from yellow to deep red to black.
For centuries, hawthorn berry has been used as an herbal remedy for digestive problems, heart failure, and high blood pressure. In fact, it’s a key part of traditional Chinese medicine.
Hawthorn berry is a rich source of polyphenols, which are powerful antioxidant compounds found in plants. Antioxidants help neutralize unstable molecules called free radicals that can harm your body when they are present at high levels. These molecules can come from poor diet, as well as environmental toxins like air pollution and cigarette smoke.
Due to their antioxidant activity, polyphenols have been associated with numerous health benefits, including a lower risk of cancer, heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Hawthorn berry may also have anti-inflammatory properties that could improve health as chronic inflammation has been linked to these same diseases.
In traditional Chinese medicine, hawthorn berry is one of the most commonly recommended foods to help treat high blood pressure. Some modern studies have suggested that hawthorn can act as a vasodilator, meaning it can relax constricted blood vessels, ultimately lowering blood pressure.
Other studies have indicated that hawthorn extract may improve blood fat levels. Why is this important? Cholesterol and triglycerides are two types of fats always present in your blood. At normal levels, they’re perfectly healthy and play very important roles in hormone production and nutrient transport throughout the body. However, imbalanced blood fat levels, particularly high triglycerides and low HDL (good) cholesterol, play a role in atherosclerosis, or plaque build-up in the blood vessels. If plaque continues to accumulate, it could completely block a blood vessel, leading to a heart attack or stroke.
Hawthorn berries and hawthorn extract have been used for centuries to treat digestive issues, particularly indigestion and stomach pain. It is thought this is because the berries contain fibre, which has been proven to aid digestion by reducing constipation and acting as a prebiotic which feeds the healthy gut bacteria, vital to maintaining healthy digestion.
Finally, key for our tea, Hawthorn it thought to have a very mild sedative effect, which may help decrease anxiety symptoms.
Hops are the female flowers from the hop plant, Humulus lupulus. They’re most commonly used in brewing, but hops have a long history in herbal medicine, dating back to at least the 9th century in Europe where they were traditionally used to treat a variety of ailments, ranging from indigestion to leprosy.
However, long ago, anecdotal evidence began to emerge that suggested hops have the potential to promote sleep too. In Europe, people began to notice that field workers who cultivated hop plants tended to fall asleep on the job more than usual. Their work was no more physically demanding than any other fieldwork, so people began to wonder if hops had sedative properties.
Early scientific studies found no solid evidence to support claims of hops’ sleep-inducing potential, however, more recent research has taken a closer look at hops and their effect on anxiety and sleep disorders and results do now suggest that hops definitely have sedative effects.
On top of their sedative properties, hops also have oestrogen-like characteristics. Like soy and flaxseed, they contain phytoestrogens. These plant-derived substances share many of the properties of oestrogen. As such, scientists are also exploring the potential use of hops to treat menopausal symptoms.
This herb comes from the daisy-like flowers of the Asteraceae plant family and has been consumed for centuries as a natural remedy for several health conditions.
Importantly for our tea, chamomile has some unique properties that may benefit the quality of sleep thanks to an antioxidant it contains, apigenin. This binds to certain receptors in the brain that may promote sleepiness.
The antioxidants found in chamomile tea have also been linked with a lower incidence of certain types of cancer. Apigenin has again been shown to fight cancer cells, especially those of the breast, digestive tract, skin, prostate, and uterus.
Another class of antioxidant abundant in chamomile tea is flavones. These have been studied for their potential to lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels, which are important indicators of heart disease risk.
Drinking chamomile tea may aid in lowering blood sugar levels. Its anti-inflammatory properties may prevent damage to the cells of the pancreas, which occurs when blood sugar levels are chronically elevated. A healthy pancreas is important as it produces insulin, the hormone responsible for removing sugar from your blood.
Finally, limited evidence suggests chamomile may also be effective for promoting better digestion by reducing the risk of certain gastrointestinal conditions. A few studies have found that chamomile extract has the potential to protect against diarrhoea which has been attributed to its anti-inflammatory properties.
Lavender is widely used as an aromatherapy agent and supplement to help with anxiety, depression, and fatigue.
Studies suggest that compounds in lavender may stimulate activity in certain areas of the brain and influence the transmission of impulses between brain cells in ways that boost mood and produce a calming effect, which is also thought to boost sleep. It is widely believed that enjoying a cup of lavender tea to unwind before bed could help you have better sleep. Research suggests that the calming fragrance of lavender extract may also promote better sleep.
Cramping in the lower abdomen before or during a menstrual period is a common issue among women. Lavender may help with feelings of discomfort; it is believed drinking lavender tea and appreciating its scent may help.

Unlike other products on the market that use plain honey and infuse it with essential oil, our Organic Lavender Honey is made by bees collecting nectar from real lavender blossoms.
Our premium Honey is 100% pure, organic and natural made in the stunning lavender fields of Hungary. Recognised as an area of natural beauty, the Hungarian countryside is unspoilt by pollution and pesticides with stunning landscapes, crisscrossed by sparkling springs and gurgling rivers, dark, untamed forests and lush wild-flower and lavender meadows, all alive with the buzz of bees. Our certified organic lavender honey is extracted from hives owned by small artisan beekeepers, who use traditional, sustainable methods, working in complete harmony with nature.
This elegant, pale yellow honey is exquisitely light and has a warm and soothing taste of creamy florals coupled with a sweet, mild and delicate lavender flavour that is simply stunning. This pleasant herb flower honey is loved for its beautiful warmth and delicious palate and so impressed judges at the 2019 Great Taste Awards that they gave it two stars saying:
“The taste is amazingly lavendery, with a very pleasant level of sweetness and brightness.”
“If you were buying lavender honey, this would be an excellent choice.”
We completely agree!
Like all honeys, our Lavender Honey contains vitamins and minerals, but it also boasts higher levels of antioxidants and amino acids, particularly Tyrosine. This primary amino acid is used by the body to make neurotransmitters that may help prevent or treat certain conditions involving the brain.
The lavender flower is also thought to contain antiseptic qualities and has been used for centuries to treat wounds. Organic Lavender Honey is thought to help promote wound healing by drying out the wound and helping to prevent infections.
When suffering from a cough or cold, it is possible this organic lavender honey can help - simply eat a spoonful neat or mix with some lemon and hot water for a soothing and calming elixir. Lavender is also believed to be an anti-inflammatory and possibly helps those suffering from insomnia. A warming mug of Lavender Honey dissolved in hot water does wonders in promoting a peaceful night’s sleep.
Lavender Honey pairs beautifully with goat’s cheese and yoghurt but glaze a joint of lamb with this honey and you’re in for a sensational roast. The natural sweetness and floral scent of this honey also go well in cakes and desserts. We have a uniquely special use for our Lavender Honey too, as the secret (or not so secret!) ingredient in our Lavender Mead!
