Essiac Tea

Tea Description
Click here to read customer feedback for this tea!

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.

For more information view our article on Essiac Tea here.

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.

Fantastic!

My naturopath recommended that I take essiac tea. I have tried a few different ones and this one is by far the best - the quality and texture of the tea seems more right and it goes much further than the others. So I'm a happy camper!

Hi Jane, ah i didn't know Naruropaths are recommending that here in Australia as it's normally not that easy (and expensive) to get a hold of. I'm glad you're happy with it - can look scary at first but the taste isn't half bad. Thanks for your great review!

Top service!

Five star service! Toby answered all my questions in a prompt and efficient manner, and when I ordered I received my package in 24 hours. Also, thanks for making the postage so reasonable :) Just starting to take the product and so far it appears to be great!

Hi Doreen - thank you! I work hard to try to make every experience a good one with Tea Life. It's still a fairly new and small company, but when I started I was worried about feedback due to the fairly subjective nature of tea - but it's all been overwhelmingly positive. Hopefully 2018 will be just as good as last year if not better. Thanks for your feedback and I'm glad you're happy. - Toby

I have only been drinking it for a few days and have not noticed anything yet but will continue drinking 30ml mixed with 60 ml water around 1-2hrs after my evening meal. I find the story really interesting and am very curious to see if I notice any health benefits after a few weeks. I find it tastes ok not great but really more interested in the possible health benefits.

Hi there, with herbal teas - especially this one any effects will normally take awhile. Sometimes I do get feedback of overnight changes with some herbal teas, but I'll never say this can happen myself as everyone is different. I hope you do notice some changes later on though, and yes I agree the story is quite interesting! - Toby

Sorry had to leave Werribee suddenly before I could access my parcel. I got home last night and have just got my parcel. It looks very professional and I will check the web site. Thanks for being so helpful. Patricia Lee

Hi Patricia, Thank you for letting me know I'm glad you got that safely! I'm often worried that the packaging design is a little too relaxed, but I do often get good feedback on it. And it will keep the tea safe for a long time! - Toby

Why buy online with Tea Life? What sets it apart?
We're not just another tea brand.
We focus on Australian grown and organic tea wherever possible.

  • Quality: Australian standards impose strict quality control on tea made within Australia.
  • Freshness: We only pack our tea upon your order. Until that time, it's kept within the bulk of the loose leaf tea. This dramatically increases freshness and taste.
  • Health: The full remedial powers, taste and aroma of our tea are unlocked due to our organic and fresh produce.

We understand that shipping fees are a little annoying, especially on low cost items such as tea. That's why we offer free shipping on all orders over $50 and $2 for shipping for up to 80g. Stock up on your favourite tea blends at Tea Life and get free shipping throughout the whole of Australia!

  • We're located in Sydney, so please allow some time for delivery based on your location. $2 shipping takes 5-7 days on average but can be much faster. $6 shipping is via registered post and takes on average 3 days.

  • We also offer Express Yellow Bag Australia Post at $8, which is free for all orders over $80. If your order is classified as such - we will prioritize your order to ensure it ships same day. Please understand that even though this is classified as 'next day delivery' by Australia Post, sometimes it can fall slightly short of this!

  • For Express, the cut off shipping time is 6pm for Australia Post. We of course need time to pick and pack too! So in general - the earlier an order is placed, the easier it will be for us to make that cut off time. We can guarantee any order will be sent same day if any order is sent prior to 3pm, excluding out of stock items.
    Express delivery orders are always given priority. In the event we don't have stock of that tea when express post is used, you will be refunded $2 to take the order back down to 3 day shipping - but an express shipping bag will still be used once back in stock.

Search is over.

The quality and potency of this green tea is outstanding!
Have been in search for really good green tea for many years now. We drink it nearly everyday. Have tried Japanese, Chinese, etc.
The search is over. Will only get this one from here on.
Almost finished the big bag just bought. Reordering now!
Thank you TeaLife! :)

Hi Elise, Thanks so much! This one is grown on a small farm in Australia as a family business - with the hand roasted version of our green tea coming from the same place too. We've had similar feedback for this tea, so we'll definitely be keeping it around for as long as they can supply us. We will hopefully be able to offer larger bags in the future once we get our act together and increase our storage space! - Toby

The order was very quickly processed and sent out. The quality of the product is also fantastic.

Hi Kate, Thank you! We have a large fragrance company in America using our Melissa Tea too, so the quality is definitely there! Thanks for your review. - Toby
Great service

Great personalised service and an all Australian product, how could you go wrong?! Love the packaging of the teas too.

Thank you Jenny! Still unsure if the packaging is too cute, but it's a good reflection of the personality of Tea Life. :)
High quality and delicious!

Firstly, I have to say the customer service is really good. The parcel took a little longer to come than I expected, so I emailed to check and I received a response straight away and an offer to re-send for free. Thankfully it did arrive and it is packed in a way that makes for easy storing. Also it tastes FANTASTIC! I used it in a special food recipe for an anniversary gift. My husband says it tastes great on its own too. I'll definitely be purchasing again.

Hi L, Thanks for getting back to me on this one! Something i'll normally do when asked where a delivery is, is ask to wait about 1 more day because 99% of the time it will turn up the day after an enquiry! Sorry for the transit time this time around, it's not really a common occurrence. I'm glad you like the tea! - Toby
