Here at Tea Life we pride ourselves on providing Australians with home-grown, organic and premium grade tea blends. We understand how important it is to have support with your health and wellness journey and we believe that different herbal teas can help with a variety of ailments.

Because of this we offer free postage on all orders over $50 and have a variety of payment options. We have seen many people experience the benefits of good quality herbal teas and we encourage everyone to incorporate a tea ritual into their lives. Here is a closer look at some of our favourite herbal teas as well as some of their amazing benefits.
This special blend has become a favourite world-wide because of the beautiful blue colour that the tea creates. Aside from the amazing colour, there are several other reasons why you should incorporate this tea into your life. Not only is it known to support eye health but many people drink it to nourish and strengthen their hair. It is caffeine free so it is a great option for those with caffeine sensitivities. It is even known to have antidepressant and anti-inflammatory properties. Around three petals is all it takes to create a magical and healing blend that can be sipped on all day.
Another one of our favourites is our hibiscus tea. This is because of the safe and gradual weight loss properties that the tea contains. Furthermore, it is known to aid the immune system and act as an anti-inflammatory. As if that wasn’t enough, hibiscus is also known to help the digestive systems and reduce high-blood pressure. These beautiful flowers can be steeped for approximately three minutes to produce a gorgeous (and nice tasting) red tea.
Melissa tea is also widely known as lemon balm and is commonly used to treat anxiety. This special blend is known to improve sleeping issues, migraines and can even help with cold sores. People will enjoy this tea who are prone to unstable moods and are looking for clarity of the mind. It is a great idea to have this drink on hand during stressful times as it can help ease tense muscles and some have even found it helpful with chronic fatigue syndrome. In this busy day and age, we believe that everyone can benefit from this amazing and soothing blend.
For anyone who has ever had trouble getting to sleep at night will love this special blend of tea. Our goodnight sleeping tea includes chamomile, peppermint, lemon balm, passionflower and blue cornflower petals, all of which help promote a peaceful sleep. Many people these days use their phone well into the night and find themselves unable to drift off to sleep. This tea is the perfect way to counteract the overuse of technology and can help those wind down before bedtime. Not only can this special blend help with sleep but it is also known to help aid PMS symptoms which can also impact a person’s sleep. A teaspoon of this is all it takes to encourage a more peaceful mind which will then lead to a better night’s rest.
In conclusion, there are many different types of teas that can be used for almost every ailment. It is just about finding the right one that works for you and fitting a regular tea ritual into your schedule. We recommend brewing our teas cold so they can easily be popped in a mason jar to take to work or to take in the car. Drinking a hot brew about an hour and a half before bed in a great way to let your body know that it is time for sleep and won’t cause the need to go to the toilet in the middle of the night. When selecting a tea that is right for you, it is important to choose blends that are healthy and have the least amount of chemicals used. That is what we offer here at Tea Life.
