We love herbal teas and have many delicious herbal blends to suit all tastes. Our range caters for those who aren't consuming caffeine, which is ideal for children and those who need help unwinding. We also stock pure herb teas for those who enjoy the purity of these teas. Herbs are lovely to look at, smell and use in cooking, but you can also enjoy them in tea. 

Our Top 5 Pure Herb Teas guide will give you a little insight into our favourite herbs and why these pure herb teas are delightful to drink any time of the day. 


Camomile Tea

Camomile is a wonder herb from the Asteraceae family. The name derives from the Latin 'earth apple'. The daisy-like flowers are pretty and distinctive, and the aroma is reminiscent of apples and hay. 

Camomile has been used in ancient medicine since folks discovered its powerful properties. It encourages calmness and restfulness and acts as a very mild sedative. Camomile is also considered good for the gut and can alleviate nausea. Many researchers have backed these claims, and although we're not chemists, we know that camomile is safe to drink for all ages unless severely allergic to pollen. 

Camomile teas have antioxidant properties and contain flavonoids, particularly apigenin, which binds specific brain receptors that can aid sleep and relaxation. Flavonoids are rich in antioxidant activity and can help your body ward off every day toxins.

Lemon Verbena Tea

Lemon verbena is a wonderful herb. A verbena family (Verbenaceae) flowering plant is native to South America. Other common names include lemon beebrush. It was brought to Europe by the Spanish and the Portuguese in the 17th century and cultivated for its oil.

The herb has a distinctive aroma of bold, sweet lemons and reminds us of old-fashioned lemon sherbet sweets. It is great for upset tummies and digestive issues and when you're under the weather. Lemon verbena also contains Verbascoside, a powerful anti-inflammatory compound that has been studied in conjunction with omega 3 as an alternative treatment for joint pain. We also love lemon verbena because it can be used in sweet and savoury cooking, but we love it just on its own as a tea. 

Our Lemon Verbena is grown in Portugal, which has the perfect climate. The gardens have rich soil, sufficient rainfall and the warmth of the sunshine, which all help to create its intense lemony flavour.

The precious essential oils remain in this whole-leaf tea and are released as the leaves open during brewing, giving the tea an exceptional fragrance and delicate flavour.

Rooibos Tea

Rooibos tea, also known as 'redbush tea', is the national beverage in South Africa. It is made from the Aspalathus linearis plant. The Rooibos shrub is fine-leaved, rugged and wild-looking, but interestingly, it is not at all red. Instead, the bush has soft needle-like green foliage and yellowish flowers that emerge in the spring. The bush thrives in the picturesque fields around the Cederberg coastal mountains close to the Western Cape province of South Africa. The distinctive red colour comes from fermentation, similar to traditional black tea production. Farmers harvest by hand, bruise and distress the cuttings, and then leave them to dry in the natural sun. The oxidisation process is entirely natural andbegins shortly after harvest.

The rooibos tea flavour is naturally soft yet robust, naturally caffeine-free and packed with Vitamin C. It also contains antioxidants and minerals such as iron, calcium, potassium, and alpha-hydroxy acid, which can promote good skin health.

Mint Tea

Mint tea is the ultimate hot refreshing beverage. It is excellent after a meal or when we feel tired. Mint teas are loved globally and are arguably one of the world's favourite herbal teas. We love it because it is revitalising, refreshing, aromatic, and great natural digestion aid. Like all herbal teas, mint is naturally caffeine-free, so perfect for any time of day for big and little kids. 

Mint is also a wonder herb. Its distinctive flavour is delightfully peppy and thoroughly enjoyable. Mint also boasts many well-being benefits and is a versatile herb ideally suited for culinary and aromatherapy purposes.

There are over thirty mint plant varieties, and they're all appreciated for their aroma and high content of essential oil. Packed with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, mint teas are beneficial alternatives to regular tea and coffee. In addition, mint is said to improve breathing and soothe cramps within the digestive system. Mint also contains Vitamins A and C and a collection of minerals to boost health. Whether peppermint, spearmint or a minty infusion, mint tea is marvellous!

Rose Bud Tea

Roses have been used for culinary and medicinal purposes for thousands of years. Incredibly, all roses are edible and can be used in tea, but some varieties are sweet while others are more bitter. It's best to stick to reputable shops like ours to make sure. 

We love rose tea because the herbal, naturally caffeine-free tea makes for a delightful and aromatic beverage. Although many herbalists claim that there are health benefits to consuming rose petals and buds, many of these are not yet supported by science. However, we do know that rose tea does contain polyphenols which are antioxidants, so the tea may help to support the immune system. In addition, it's documented that ancient cultures consumed rose buds for centuries, which tells us something about the beautiful flower. 

If you're after a slightly unusual tea, a little showy and highly fragrant tea, you can't go wrong with rose bud tea.

This beautiful tea speaks volumes with its appearance alone and tastes incredible. A bit of a showstopper, the fragrant rosebuds develop a pleasant, soothing, mild taste and an emerald-green cup. 

The flavour is subtle yet refreshing, and we love to serve it in a glass teapot for a real spectacle.
