An interesting herb that has some unique uses, such as overcoming jet lag and improving memory.

Being an anti-inflammatory, this herb can also be useful against arthritis.

Basil Tea

A wonderful therapeutic tea. Great for stress and relieving anxiety. With the warmer summer months upon us, making a pot and keeping it chilled in the fridge is a refreshing way to cool down. Great service and prompt postage receipt.

Hi JP, one of our more popular teas here, and definitely something we try to keep well stocked of. Glad you're enjoying it.

Everyone should drink it!

Been feeling great since I swapped most of my daily coffee for a savoury herbal tea combo including this thyme tea, as well as some sage and other things. I do feel like it's good for mouth health (everything in moderation of course!)

Hi Daniel, Thanks for your great review. It's actually much easier to quit coffee if replaced with something else. The first couple of days are the hardest, but it's really not that bad!
Calming and Tasty

Slightly sweet and great to sip on in the afternoon over a relaxing chat.

Thanks Anthony, Agreed! :)
slimming tea

This tea is traditionally used to increase appetite, recovering weight after an illness due to its high nutritional value. Great for you if you are suffering from anemia or malnutrition. It is an herbal slimming tea.
As far as I know, this tea helps to reduce fat, I chose to drink this tea because I want to recovering weight. I try many tea before and I think this tea is also good. If we love our health, we should drink a good and quality tea. I love this tea.
Thank you

Senna Tea

My tea on time and packed perfectly. Most of all my Senna Tea was fresh. Was extremely happy and will re order again.

Hi Angie, I'm glad you noticed! We actually keep relatively small levels of stock on hand. This means with any order, it has not been sitting there for long at all. That combined with many orders, and that fact that we don't pre pack our tea and only separate from the bulk upon customer order means that our tea is normally quite fresh. Thanks so much for your review!
