All our herbal teas are made with passion, using the finest natural ingredients with no artificial flavourings, colourings, or preservatives, and come in aroma-sealing packaging that keeps the tea fresh for months.

Peppermint
Peppermint (Mentha × piperita) is an aromatic herb in the mint family. Native to Europe and Asia, it has been used for thousands of years for its pleasant, minty taste and health benefits.

Peppermint leaves contain several essential oils including menthol, menthone and limonene and it is the menthol that gives peppermint its cooling properties and recognizably minty scent. In addition to its pleasant smell, peppermint has antibacterial properties that help kill the germs that cause dental plaque and so may improve your breath.  

Peppermint appears to act as a muscle relaxant and pain reliever, so may diminish certain types of headaches. This apparent ability could be attributed to the menthol too which potentially increases blood flow, provides a cooling sensation and eases pain. But peppermint oil has also been shown to relax muscles in your digestive system and improve various digestive symptoms. Therefore, peppermint tea may provide similar benefits.

Peppermint has antibacterial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties. Because of this, it is possible that peppermint tea may fight clogged sinuses due to infections, the common cold and allergies.

Peppermint tea may also improve energy levels and reduce daytime fatigue. While there are no studies on peppermint tea specifically, research demonstrates that natural compounds in peppermint may have beneficial effects on energy.

Finally, because peppermint acts as a muscle relaxant, it may also relieve period pain.

Rose Hips
Rose hips are the round, seed-filled bulbs found underneath rose petals. Unlike rose blossoms, which bloom in the spring and summer months, rose hips generally grow after the petals have bloomed and started falling off, which is usually in early to mid-Autumn. In fact, they’re considered sweeter when picked after the first frost of the season.

Rose hips get their red-orange colour from carotenoid pigments known as lycopene and beta carotene. These pigments are thought to promote skin and eye health.

They’re also rich in disease-fighting antioxidants, such as vitamin C, catechins, quercetin, and ellagic acid. A diet rich in these compounds can help lower inflammation and oxidative stress in your body.
Furthermore, vitamin C plays a key role in collagen synthesis and supporting the immune system.

Lavender
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. 

Finally, it is believed that drinking lavender tea and appreciating its scent may help lessen the discomforts of period pain.

Hibiscus
Hibiscus flowers come in many colours. They can be red, yellow, white, or peach-coloured, and can be as big as 6 inches wide. 

Hibiscus tea is made from a mixture of dried hibiscus flowers, leaves, and dark red calyces (the cup-shaped centres of the flowers). After the flower finishes blooming, the petals fall off and the calyces turn into pods. These hold the plant’s seeds. Calyces are often the main ingredients in herbal drinks containing hibiscus.

Hibiscus has been used by different cultures as a remedy for several conditions: the Egyptians used hibiscus tea to lower body temperature, treat heart and nerve diseases, and as a diuretic to increase urine production. In Africa, tea was used to treat constipation, cancer, liver disease, and cold symptoms. Pulp made from the leaves was applied to the skin to heal wounds.

Today we know Hibiscus tea is rich in powerful antioxidants and may therefore help prevent damage and disease caused by the build-up of free radicals which harm your cells and can lead to serious illness such as cancers, so perhaps our ancestors were right.

It is commonly thought that hibiscus tea can also help lower blood pressure; several studies have found that hibiscus tea may lower both systolic and diastolic blood pressure, potentially lowering the risk of heart disease.

In addition, there is some evidence that hibiscus tea might be able to support a healthy liver function, helping it to work effectively and also promote weight loss, while Hibiscus is high in polyphenols, which are compounds that have been shown to possess powerful anti-cancer properties.

Preparation:
Pour 250 ml of hot water over 1-2 teaspoon of our Organic Night-time tea. Leave to brew for 10 minutes, strain and your tea is ready. Flavour to your liking and enjoy.

One jar contains 40-45 cups of tea.

Storage:
Store in the aroma sealing packaging provided in a clean, dry place at a temperature not exceeding 25C. Keep out of the reach of small children.

 

Kids’ Fruity Immunity Support Tea (100g)

This 100% natural fruit tea is the perfect choice for health-conscious parents for them to enjoy with their children.

Made from real dried blackcurrants, black rowan and rosehip our Kids’ Immunity Tea is a delicious and healthy choice, containing no added sugar and no artificial flavourings, preservatives, or colourings. Instead, it is packed full of flavonoids, vitamins and minerals and so could help support the immune system.

Each 100g tea box contains 40-45 servings and thanks to the aroma-sealing packaging, the tea stays fresh for months once opened – although we don’t think it will be around long enough to put it to the test!

Why is Kids Immunity Support Tea good for you?

It’s the amazing natural ingredients that go into it that make it so good.

The key ingredients are:

Blackcurrants

Blackcurrants are full of antioxidants, including flavonoids, polyphenols and anthocyanins. Anthocyanins give blackcurrants their characteristic dark colour and fight free radicals in the body, reducing oxidative stress and cell damage. In fact, blackcurrants have one of the highest antioxidant values for fruit, contributing to their reputation as effective in treating or preventing several health issues.

This includes supporting the immune system (blackcurrants are very high in vitamin C too), allowing the body to fight infection and diseases, and being rich in Omega-6 fatty acid, they are thought to help reduce inflammation. The high levels of anthocyanin may help treat glaucoma by increasing the blood flow in the eyes while high rates of manganese are thought to help control blood sugar levels.

The antioxidants in blackcurrants help to fight free radicals in the body. They also help to reduce cell damage that can otherwise lead to certain types of cancer. Anthocyanins in blackcurrants may even help to slow the development of existing cancer cells on the liver.

Blackcurrants also boast high levels of Vitamins A, B1, B2, E and as already mentioned, Vitamin C while a high content of calcium and iron may help in the formation of red blood cells which in turn increases the rate of haemoglobin – helpful to children and women with anaemia.

Black Rowan

This tiny red berry packs quite a nutritious punch and includes high levels of vitamin C, but also Vitamins A, E, K and the whole group of B vitamins. In addition, there are significant amounts of calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc, iron and sorbic acid. However, rowan is mostly praised for its unique antioxidant composition; tannins, polyphenols including anthocyanins and flavonoids.

Polyphenols are extremely powerful antioxidants, of which black rowan contains an unsurpassed amount compared to other berries. Based on their unusually strong antioxidant effects, polyphenols are attributed to a number of health-promoting effects.

It is thought the antioxidants prevent the harmful effects of free radicals throughout the body. Free radicals are the dangerous by-products of cellular metabolism that can cause healthy cells to mutate into cancerous cells, or simply perish. Research suggests that eating rowan berries, can significantly boost your antioxidant levels, which could result in preventing cancerous growths, reducing the chances of premature ageing, improving the health of your skin, increasing cell regeneration and healing rates, and boosting eye health, including reducing the chances of macular degeneration. 

In traditional medicine, rowan berry juice was used to reduce inflammation of the respiratory tract, improve sore throats, and relieve asthma and congestion. Some of this may be due to the antioxidant compounds that also act as anti-inflammatory agents, while vitamin C is known to soothe the symptoms of asthma. Rowan berries have been trusted for generations as a home remedy for respiratory ailments and in such a tasty tea as our Immunity Tea it’s surely worth a try. 

Rose Hips

Rose hips are the round, seed-filled bulbs found underneath rose petals. Unlike rose blossoms, which bloom in the spring and summer months, rose hips generally grow after the petals have bloomed and started falling off, which is usually in early to mid-Autumn. In fact, they’re considered sweeter when picked after the first frost of the season.

They’re also rich in disease-fighting antioxidants, such as vitamin C, catechins, quercetin, and ellagic acid. A diet rich in these compounds can help lower inflammation and oxidative stress in your body.

Furthermore, vitamin C plays a key role in collagen synthesis and supporting the immune system.

Elderflower

Elderflower is naturally sweet and adds just the right subtle floral flavour to appeal to children and adults.

Fennel

Fennel adds a taste a little like liquorice, a relaxing scent and slightly bitter aftertaste.

It is thought that fennel helps muscles to relax and so aids sleep if drunk before bed – and a good night’s sleep helps keep the body fit and healthy and supports the immune system. Fennel’s apparent ability to relax muscles includes the stomach muscles which also helps with constipation, helping to rid the body of toxins.

Sticking with stomachs, if yours is upset, or you have a case of flatulence or diarrhoea, fennel tea can help as it has long been recognised as an aid to digestion.

Finally, fennel tea contains antioxidants which appear to attach to molecules in the blood that are fighting oxidative damage. This lessens the load on the kidney and liver, helps new cell production, and even reduces the signs of ageing. Another reason why our Kids’ Immunity Tea might be enjoyed by parents too!

Preparation:

Pour 250 ml of hot water over 1-2 teaspoon of our Kids’ Immunity Support Tea. Leave to brew for 10 minutes, strain and your tea is ready. Flavour to your liking and enjoy.

One jar contains 40-45 cups of tea.

 

Organic Night-time Tea (50g)

We’ve taken the finest natural ingredients to produce this naturally caffeine free, organic Night-time tea designed to help soothe after a stressful day and aid peaceful, healthy sleep so you awake refreshed and ready to go in the morning.

We have created peace of mind and well-being in a mug!

All our herbal teas are made with passion, using the finest natural ingredients with no artificial flavourings, colourings, or preservatives, and come in aroma-sealing packaging that keeps the tea fresh for months.

Why drink our Organic Night-time Tea?

We firmly believe that by drinking this caffeine free and ethically produced tea blend you can help yourself to overcome the stresses of a hard, tense day and ease yourself into a good night’s sleep.  And the magic ingredients?  Hawthorn, hop, chamomile and lavender.

Hawthorn

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

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.

Chamomile

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

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.

Preparation:

Pour 250 ml of hot water over 1-2 teaspoon of our Organic Night-time tea.  Leave to brew for 10 minutes, strain and your tea is ready.  Flavour to your liking and enjoy.

One jar contains 40-45 cups of tea.

We recommend drinking one cup during the day and one in the evening before going to bed (do not drink more than three cups a day).

Use for a maximum of three months, then take a break of 2-3 weeks to ensure continued efficacy.

Caution:

Not to be drunk by children under 14 years of age, or pregnant or breastfeeding women.

Drivers and workers handling machinery should not consume this tea before or during working hours.

If you are on any medication, talk to you doctor before taking our Night-time tea.

 

Oolong Detox Tea Blend with Gingko, Ginger & Cinnamon (100g)

Our Oolong Detox Tea Blend is a twist on the traditional Chinese Oolong tea made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant which is also used to make green and black teas.  The difference is in how the teas are processed which is all to do with oxidation. This is a chemical reaction that begins when the leaves are exposed to the air, and which is responsible for the colour and taste of different teas:

  • Green tea is produced from fresh tea leaves that have not undergone oxidation
  • Black tea is created when leaves are fully crushed which enhance oxidations
  • Oolong tea is created when the leaves are wilted in the sun and slightly bruised to create partial oxidation which is why it has the benefits of both green and black teas

Our Oolong Detox Tea Blend also incorporates Gingko biloba leaf and warming spices ginger and cinnamon, for added flavour and benefits.  

The tea is made with 100% natural ingredients and contains no artificial colourings, flavourings or preservatives and our aroma-sealing packaging keeps the tea fresh for months.

Why drink our Oolong Detox Tea Blend?

We recommend our tea blend to those who are looking for a healthy solution to activate their body’s metabolism.

Daily consumption of oolong tea is thought to help you lose weight more effectively through reducing cravings for unhealthy foods by activating enzymes in your body that speed up fat burning and metabolism.   It may also block the absorption of fats so instead of being deposited, they are simply emptied from the body.

Oolong tea also contains high levels of polyphenols which not only supports the weight loss function but also have other effects:

Digestive improving effect:

The tea it thought to alkalize the digestive system, reduce inflammation, and also help with reflux. This is because it contains a mild anti-infective that is believed to help clear harmful bacteria from the digestive system thereby supporting better absorption in the gastrointestinal tract.

Better skin: 

It is thought that Oolong tea is able to help remove free radicals from the body helping to reduce the ageing process of skin and irritations like eczema.  

Healthier hair: 

The high antioxidant content of oolong tea may be able to help prevent hair loss while making it look shinier and thicker. Improvements can be seen in as little as a week.

Healthy bones:

The active ingredients in the tea blend help to better absorb the minerals ingested from our food, thereby improving bone health.

Our Oolong Detox Tea is a blend, however, and the added ingredients are gingko biloba leaf which is thought to stimulate memory and cerebral circulation and reduces the symptoms of anxiety;  ginger which has been used for centuries to aid digestion, reduce nausea (including morning sickness), and to help fight the flu and common cold and cinnamon which contains anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antibacterial properties which support the immune system.

PREPARATION:  We recommend using hot, but not boiling water (80-90°C).  Allow the tea to brew while covered for 10-15 minutes and pour.  Flavour the tea to your liking but we think it’s an unforgettable pleasure to drink it as it comes!

You can prepare your daily dose of tea in advance and take it with you in a bottle if you are out for the day, and in summer try it either chilled or as an iced tea.  

Drink our Oolong tea three times a day and within two weeks you should start to see results.

 

Zesty Morning Time Tea (80g)

Give yourself the best start to your day with our Morning Time Tea. This zesty, zingy wake-up call is a delicious blend of rosehip, hibiscus and calendula.

The combined effect of all three herbal wonders is a vitamin C and antioxidant hit that helps support the immune system and tastes great.

Why drink our Morning Time Tea?
The three key ingredients each come with their own recommendation, supported by hundreds of years of use in traditional medicine, but together make an unbeatable combination.

Rose Hips
Rose hips are the round, seed-filled bulbs found underneath rose petals. Unlike rose blossoms, which bloom in the spring and summer months, rose hips generally grow after the petals have bloomed and started falling off, which is usually in early to mid-Autumn. In fact, they’re considered sweeter when picked after the first frost of the season.

Rose hips get their red-orange colour from carotenoid pigments known as lycopene and beta carotene. These pigments are thought to promote skin and eye health.

They’re also rich in disease-fighting antioxidants, such as vitamin C, catechins, quercetin, and ellagic acid. A diet rich in these compounds can help lower inflammation and oxidative stress in your body.

Furthermore, vitamin C plays a key role in collagen synthesis and supporting the immune system.

Hibiscus
Hibiscus flowers come in many colours. They can be red, yellow, white, or peach-coloured, and can be as big as 6 inches wide. 

Hibiscus tea is made from a mixture of dried hibiscus flowers, leaves, and dark red calyces (the cup-shaped centres of the flowers). After the flower finishes blooming, the petals fall off and the calyces turn into pods. These hold the plant’s seeds. Calyces are often the main ingredients in herbal drinks containing hibiscus.

Hibiscus has been used by different cultures as a remedy for several conditions. Egyptians used hibiscus tea to lower body temperature, treat heart and nerve diseases, and as a diuretic to increase urine production.

In Africa, tea was used to treat constipation, cancer, liver disease, and cold symptoms. Pulp made from the leaves was applied to the skin to heal wounds.

Today we know Hibiscus tea is rich in powerful antioxidants and may therefore help prevent harm and disease caused by the build-up of free radicals which cause damage to your cells and can lead to serious illness such as cancers, so perhaps our ancestors were right.

It is commonly thought that hibiscus tea can also help lower blood pressure; several studies have found that hibiscus tea may lower both systolic and diastolic blood pressure, potentially lowering the risk of heart disease.

In addition, there is some evidence that hibiscus tea might be able to support a healthy liver function, helping it to work effectively and also promote weight loss, while Hibiscus is high in polyphenols, which are compounds that have been shown to possess powerful anti-cancer properties.

Calendula
Calendula, a flowering plant also known as pot marigold, can be served as a tea, or used as an ingredient in various herbal formulations.

While the tea is made by steeping the flowers in boiling water, the extract is derived from both the flowers and the leaves. Despite its slightly bitter taste, calendula tea is a traditional remedy used in folk medicine because of its ascribed therapeutic properties.

Taken internally as a tea or tincture, calendula is thought to aid and treat digestive issues, such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), as an adjunct therapy for peptic ulcers, to stimulate the lymphatic system, and to assist with a smooth menstrual flow.

The herb’s antifungal and antimicrobial properties help prevent infection and heal injuries to body tissues. Calendula is also known to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant components and is full of carotenoids and flavonoids all of which might help to fight cancer, protect against heart disease and other diseases, while also easing muscle fatigue.

Preparation:
If you simply can’t wait, it’s fine to add boiling water to the tea for instant consumption, however, to get the best out of our Morning Time Tea, you need to ensure all the vitamin C and other fruit acids have been completely dissolved. Therefore, we recommend soaking the tea in cold water for at least 12 hours and then reheat it to drink.

Use 1-2 teaspoons of tea mixture for one cup of tea.

Storage:
Keep in the aroma sealing box in a dry, clean place at a temperature not exceeding 25 C.
