Herbal tea has been drunk for its potential health benefits since the Middle Ages. While we do not make any definitive claims about the medicinal effects of our unique herbal tea blends, as we prepare to make the transition from winter to spring, this article aims to provide an overview of the most common benefits associated with different herbal teas.
Rich in antioxidants
In addition to green tea, several studies have shown that some herbs and spices are rich in antioxidants. It is generally accepted that antioxidants play a role in neutralising free radicals, which are often associated with chronic diseases and the ageing process.
Soothing rituals for relaxation
Our customers tell us that our herbal tea blends which contain chamomile, such as our ‘Relax‘ herbal tea blend, have soothing properties. Enjoying a warm cup of herbal tea, especially in the evening, is seen by many as a calming ritual to help the body and mind make a peaceful transition between being awake and going to sleep.
Supporting digestive comfort
Tasty hydration alternatives
Herbal teas are a healthy and tasty alternative to sugary soft drinks. Whether enjoyed hot or cold, herbal teas blends can make meeting daily hydration goals more enjoyable. Some examples of popular refreshing herbal tea blends that can be enjoyed as a tasty alternative to water are ‘Summer Breeze‘, ‘Thank God it’s Friday‘ and ‘Witches Brew’.
Potential immune system support
Some herbs found in herbal tea blends are believed to have immune-system boosting properties. While such claims should be approached with caution, many of our customers tell us that teas containing such herbs, for example our herbal tea blend “Immune Boost” help them keep healthy through the winter.
Mindful choices for a well-rounded lifestyle
Incorporating herbal tea into your daily routine is a tasty and holistic approach to promoting overall wellbeing. Whether you are looking for antioxidants, digestive support or a moment of calm in a hectic day, our diverse range of herbal tea blends offers a delicious and natural alternative to store-bought drinks, coffee, or caffeinated teas. Of course, herbal tea is not a substitute for a healthy, balanced diet and regular exercise, but replacing less healthy drinks with herbal tea is a great step towards a healthier and more mindful lifestyle.
Ideal as part of a fasting or cleanse programme, our exclusive “Rejuvenate” Wellness Herbal Tea Collection offers a choice of four different herbal teas tailored for different moments of the day.
Studies and further information
