Be Kind to Yourself, The Best Way to Start the Year!

We believe that balance in life, at work or home starts with you. And being kinder to yourself can help to create balance by restoring order, health and wellbeing. That's why this new decade, the roaring 2020s, we should all be starting the new year with goodness in mind.

After a period of indulgence, caffeine, alcohol and general merriment, it's not always easy, or right, to quit the fun and crash diet or detox. And quite frankly, experts are now saying that these new year practices don't work as well as we once thought. However, taking small steps to be kinder, healthier and more balanced will naturally spur you on to be more considerate and therefore better to yourself.

A great way to start your kindness journey that takes up minimal time and effort is with Herbal Tea infusions. Herbs, throughout the centuries, have been reputed to have incredible healing, wellness and mindful properties. Some are great for aiding sleep and digestion while others help to calm or inspire. We won't go into herbalism here, but the natural world is full of wondrously gentle and natural ways of being kinder to our bodies and minds.


Are Herbal Teas Really Tea?

We all know about herbal teas, but, herbal infusion or tisane, as the French call it, is not classified as true tea. Tea, containing caffeine is only harvested and produced from the camelia plant and its principal varieties Camellia sinensis and Camelia assamica, whereas herbs are naturally caffeine-free and interact with the human body in different ways.

The similarity between traditional tea and tisanes comes in the preparation. Both are mostly prepared from dried ingredients and infused in hot water, steeped for a certain amount of time before being enjoyed and sipped as a delicious drink.

To create herbal infusions, you can use different parts of plants such as leaves, flowers, seeds, fruits, bark or roots. Sometimes only a single ingredient is used like chamomile blossoms or peppermint leaves. Much more commonly, however, are herbal blends, and there is almost no limit to creativity by blending different herbs and fruits.

We have a delicious range of herbal and wellness teas for you to try. Our extensive teas range from pure ingredients such as spearmint or lemongrass, but we also have a collection of expertly blended wellness teas that we know you'll love!
