Essiac Tea

Tea Description

Way back in the 1920s, some rumors started to circulate from within the forests of Ontario Canada about a tea that can help fight against cancer. A nurse going by the name of Renee Caisse was purportedly the holder of a secret tea blend she had discovered - of which she protected up until just before her death...

While we won't claim this tea will fight/prevent cancer as some others do, this combination of herbs does have a very good level of antioxidants, along with compounds within this blend proven to have a protective mechanism to help prevent DNA damage/degradation and positively affect the immune system.

This Organically grown blend is a Tea Life exclusive


Health Benefits

Due to the high amount of vitamins within this tea, it's hard to list them all so here's just a few...

  • Amazingly plentiful in Antioxidants
  • Very good for the immune system
  • Great preventative medicine
  • Also good for sore throats

How to brew Essiac Tea

This one is a little different to your usual pour and go teas.

  • 35 grams for every 1 liter of water
  • Add to boiling water in the pot for 10 mins
  • Leave covered overnight
  • The next day bring it to steaming, but not a boil
  • Let it cool again - and it's ready
  • After this, it should be kept refrigerated

Essiac Tea Known Side Effects

Can cause the immune system to become more active, so use with caution if you have an auto-immune disease.

Number one tea for boosting your immune system

I am a Naturopath and was looking for "Essiac Tea" to buy and came across Toby's site. He didn't have this tea, but offered to source the ingredients and here it is. What a guy!!
This tea has enormous cancer fighting properties and is an immune system booster...drink a cup a day.

• If you want to use the tea for boosting your immune system & general maintenance, then you measure an eggcup full of the tea and dilute it with enough hot water to make half a cup. Drink every day.(at night)
• If you are going through a body detox, and want to purge the toxins out of your gut and body, then double that amount,drink at night,no food an hour before
• drink plenty of water because this helps to flush away the toxins
• It is the best tea for detoxing and immune system maintenance

Hi Karina, Thank you for your review! Please let me know of any other updates you have with this blend and hope to hear from you soon. : )

Oolong Iron Goddess

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!

Traditional Chai Tea


The colour of this Blue Butterfly Peaflower tea is stunning and vibrant. The tea is worth buying simply for the pleasure of admiring it. The flavour itself is subtle and pleasant.

Hi Mahalia, should be experienced at least once!

I used to drink tea all the time. And I like green tea. When I tried this green tea I could feel the difference between the taste, smell and color, which I was very impressed. It's better than the tea I've had now. And everyone knows that green tea is good for. When we have a good tea, It can make our lives incredibly happy.
