What are the benefits of Lemon Myrtle Tea?


Back in stock and freshly picked literally days ago from what we confidently deem the best farm in Australia for Lemon Myrtle Tea - this versatile 'super tree' has numerous uses so keep on reading to find out exactly what it can do for you.  

Speaking from personal experience, earlier this year I came down with a common cold and sore throat around the same time I received my first samples of Lemon Myrtle Tea. I know my body well and what I should normally expect with this - generally involving feeling like I want to spend the next week in bed.
Drinking a few cups of Lemon Myrtle Tea per day drastically reduced my sickness time down to just a couple of days and will now forever be my tea of choice when I'm unlucky enough to have caught a cold!

Lemon Myrtle helps the skin

Citral is known to be a natural skin cleanser that helps with both acne and blemishes.
Antibacterial+Antiseptic properties further aid and come to the rescue of those wanting to give their skin a natural boost.

Antioxidant effects?

Many teas contain anti-oxidants and Lemon Myrtle is no exception. Being particularly abundant within this tea, we'd like to stress the above first point that this tea helps to fight against the effects of stress, pollution and other nasties on the skin.

Can it help fight against Cellulite?

Yes. Studies have shown that connective tissue regrowth is one of the benefits of drinking Lemon Myrtle, with one of the major components of cellulite being the breakdown of connective tissue. Lean muscle tissue growth is also another nice side effect, which further adds to the appearance of healthy looking legs.

Lemon Myrtle Tea is anti-inflammatory

Study has been done on this.
"The anti-inflammatory activities occurred through down-regulation of iNOS and COX-2 enzymes and inhibition of the accumulation of their respective products, NO and PGE2"

Which roughly translates to "Lemon Myrtle Tea contains anti-inflammatory properties".

Eye Bags

This tea is known to reduce dark eye bags by strengthening capillaries.

Lemon Myrtle helps with weight loss and detoxing

The Citral mentioned earlier also helps to detoxify by acting as a diuretic which means urinating more frequently. This process helps to flush out the kidneys, liver, bladder and other organs. Did we mention that Lemon Myrtle contains many times the amount of Citral then lemon, which is the component that gives lemons their smell?

Natures Painkiller

Effective against fevers, colds, sore throats, and headaches, with Indigenous Australians having long used lemon myrtle, both in cuisine and as a healing plant.

Sleeping aid

The benefits keep coming. A natural sleeping aid that works by reducing overall stress on the mind and body.

Immune System

Anti-bacterial properties and high anti-oxidants double up in this tea to help fight against infection!


The mental aspects have been ignored a bit in this list! Aromatherapists often use Lemon Myrtle as a concentration aid that also helps with depression and fatigue.

Brilliant Herbal Tea

I give you 5 stars on everything. The service is quick, your pricing is reasonable. You have a easy website to use and the description of your tea is very informative.
I also find that the tea is doing exactly what you said it would do for my husband. He is very happy with it. Planning on buying the Turmeric Tea later. Can I use the Turmeric Tea in hot milk instead of water. I currently make it with the spice Turmeric, ginger, a little black pepper, honey and coconut oil with hot milk to help with my type 2 diabetes and also my arthritis.

Hi Narelle, thanks for your great review! Re Tumeric Tea: Yes it's very common for people to place this with milk - which I'll add to the teas description now on the website if that information isn't there!

The tea is delicious and arrived quickly. Would definitely buy again!!

Hi Clare, thank you for your review - much appreciated! This one is blended in house with fresh leaves.
Rich and Flavoursome

I love hibiscus tea after having been given some as a gift from Bali. I have been looking everywhere for something similar and am delighted with the Organic product from Tea Life! You don't need much tea to create a good strong cup and I manage to get at least two mugs worth out of the same flowers. In tea heaven!

Thank you for your review Keva! Definitely not much is needed, with a few customers saying on their first brew they made it waaaaaay too strong.
Cocoa husk tea

Delicious, and organic!
I’m very pleased with my purchase.

Hi Tracy, Thanks for your review! That's a good question and I'm still unsure why too! I'm trying to find out, along with trying to source this for a cheaper rate. The inside parts are called 'nibs' and really very very cheap when compared with the husk.
Yarrow tea

Ordered this tea to use for its antinflammatory properties. It smells lovely, packaged in resealable bag and is very mild to drink. Appears fresh.

Hi Rosalyn, Thank you for your review on our Yarrow tea!
