Health Benefits of Teas and Tisanes

Health Benefits of Teas and Tisanes

We recently found a great infographic (down below) that illustrates an easy to read flow chart containing some well known herbal teas, along with the reasons they are commonly used. There's a couple of things we'd be adding or changing within this graph, but for the most part it's quite good.

Feel free to pass this along, print it for your fridge, or save to your computer!

Pu'er Goodness

I drink pu'er regularly for its known benefits and this is a good quality tea as how pu'er should be; smooth and mature, thanks Tea Life for stocking them well!

Hi Imelda, thanks for your review and that's a big compliment. We're getting 4 new Oolong teas in soon and will also be dropping the price a little too :) Oops and we'll also be adding that age information in soon too.
It Works!

I was losing weight on my own for almost 10weeks, but i still had bloating issues. This tea really made my tummy flat n tightier. This helps with those who are either at their plateau with losing weight or those who really do have bloating issues. I reached my plateau n had bloating issues so this was the answers to my issues. Highly Reccomend!

Hi Sabrina, thanks for your great review. I've shared this one to our Facebook page if you don't mind :) Sometimes it's just a matter of trying a few things and seeing what works as every body is different. We've had similar stories from this tea before too, so it does look like it often does work as intended.
Sencha Sweet Selections

Lovin this Sencha Sweet selections tea . Its full of beautiful fruity / floral flavours and it has such a beautiful fragrance. Ive enjoyed this both hot or as an iced tea..!!

Hi again Devinna, thanks for more amazing pictures. We'll also be sharing these to Facebook and our Instagram - they're too good not to. Sencha Sweet Selections is also one of my favorites and is way up there with the best of them in smell and taste. - Toby
Great quality

I love your silver needle tea! I blend it with the blue butterfly peaflower tea which I drink everyday as a ice tea. I have hashimoto's and it has helped so much I will not go a day without it. Thank you for wonderful service & quality products!!

Hi Leah, Thanks for your review and I'm really glad that's helping. You might also be happy to know that we've finally been able to secure a large amount of Silver Needle, so you'll see a price drop on this tea within a month or so.
Ezcema helped

Actually did help me reduce my eczema maybe even better than my usual creams . Good service too.
