Health and Well-Being

We're big on wellness here at Cup of Tea, especially after the festivities! 

Having indulged, we're now thinking of restoring wellness, and that starts with good sleep and balance, which are integral to the health of body and mind. 

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. The natural world is full of wondrously gentle and natural ways of helping us.

Packed with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, herbal and wellness teas are a great way to get 2021 off to a healthy start. Not only do they offer a beneficial alternative to regular tea and coffee, but they can also help with everything from detoxifying your system to boosting your energy. The good news is that there is a herbal brew to suit everyone. 

We have the perfect range of herbal and wellness teas to help you feel good and balanced. All of our infusions contain real herbs, fruit and spices, with no unnatural additives, which means that you can drink as much as you like whenever you like. What could be better to get 2021 off to a better start than full flavour, aroma, and natural goodness?

 

Here are some key herbal ingredients that we love. 

 

Rooibos: High in vitamin C, full of antioxidants and minerals such as iron, calcium and potassium, Rooibos also contains the alpha-hydroxy acid to promote good skin health.

 

Lemon Verbena: A heavenly fragrant herb reminiscent of 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 known to look after our hearts, this wonder-leaf is thought to reduce inflammation and aid oral health.

 

Lemon Balm: One for the mind, this lemony, fuzzy leaf is calming for the mind, can encourage restful sleep, and act as a powerful antioxidant.

 

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. 

 

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 originates 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 it may lead to lower blood pressure, aid in weight loss, and fight bacteria because it is packed with antioxidants.

 

Anise: Best known as aniseed, this highly aromatic herb is incredibly flavoursome. Although quite enlivening, it is thought to have many health benefits, especially those with sleeping disorders, as it's calming and soothing, from the inside.

 

So, what are you waiting for? If you want a little help to feel well, be well and sleep well, give our wellness teas a try!
