Many things can throw us off balance; life, work, and even the weather can irritate and dampen our spirits, but knowing how to turn that frown upside down often starts with a good cuppa.

But not just any old cuppa!

We’re firm believers in looking after ourselves, when we can, and this mantra shouldn’t stop with your loose-leaf tea selection.

All of our herbal tea infusions contain real herbs, fruit and spices, with no unnatural additives, which means that you can drink as much as you feel like.

Fitness Herbal Infusion

 

Why drink it?

If you’re feeling exhausted after a full-on day or perhaps you just can’t bring yourself to seize the day, then a cup of Fitness Herbal Infusion is for you.
An invigorating infusion of herbs with a sparkle of citrus, this naturally caffeine-free tea contains the perfect blend of the following wonder-herbs.

 

Rooibos – High in vitamin C, full of anti-oxidants, minerals such as iron, calcium and potassium, also the alpha-hydroxy acid can promote good skin health.

Lemongrass – Incredibly aromatic, this wonder-herb is known for its culinary prowess. It is often given to settle an inflamed stomach, can reduce fever and in aromatherapy treatments, can calm anxiety.

Lemon Verbena – Another heavenly fragrant herb reminiscent of a lemon sherbet, is taken as an immunity booster, digestion aid and treatment for congestion.

Blackberry Leaves – We all know the humble blackberry, but the leaves are undervalued and underused. A great source of flavonoids which are known to look after our hearts, this wonder-leaf is thought to reduce inflammation and aid oral health.

cornflowerLemon Balm – One for the mind, this lemony, fuzzy leaf is calming for the mind, can encourage restful sleep as well as acting as a powerful anti-oxidant.

Sandalwood – Used extensively in aromatherapy, it has been associated with ancient civilisations in religious or spiritual rituals. Among its many good properties, sandalwood is said to improve memory and stimulates concentration power.

Cornflower Petals – The striking blue petals are not just for show! They are rich in mineral salts and pectin, good for digestion, and are known for their calming properties.

Good Vitality



Why drink it?

 

If you need a pick-me-up with lots of benefits, our Good Vitality tea is a superbly refreshing infusion of fruit, herbs and Cola nut. Naturally caffeine-free, it’s packed with goodness; the blend has a unique flavour verging on sweet with a fresh citrusy taste. Once brewed, the fruit tea adopts a deep, vibrant red colour thanks to the hibiscus and the addition of the Cola nut provides energy and adds freshness and pep to your day.

 

 

Apple - Dried apple is one of the key ingredients in fruit teas. It acts as a sweet yet tart baseline which works in harmony with almost all other components.  Apples contain many essential nutrients, vitamins, and minerals and they are free of fat, sodium, and cholesterol, but full of antioxidants, potassium, dietary fibre and vitamin C.

Hibiscus - Another key baseline ingredient in many fruit teas, it is created from the hibiscus flower's calyces, when brewed, the infusion omits a deep red colour and a sour cranberry-like flavour. Hibiscus is now being researched, and initial tests suggest that because it is packed with antioxidants, it may lead to lowering of blood pressure, aid in weight loss and fight bacteria.

Blackberry Leaves – We all know the humble blackberry, but the leaves are undervalued and underused. A great source of flavonoids which are known to look after our hearts, this wonder-leaf is known to reduce inflammation and aid in oral health.

elderberryElderberries - The berries are black or very dark blue and have a sharp, sweet flavour. Elderberries are packed with vitamin C and therefore good for boosting the immune system, as well as promoting bone health and speeding up the metabolism.

Orange Peel – More immunity boosting vitamin C can be found in humble orange peel. Along with flavonoids known as hesperidin which play a crucial role in reducing the cholesterol level in the body and lowering blood pressure. Its slightly bitter taste and aromatic nature works in harmony with the sour-sweet nature of the other complimenting ingredients.

Look no further, if you need that boost!
