Which tea is right for you?
With so many teas out there, each with their own set of health benefits, it can be tricky to know which are the ones for you. We give you the lowdown on these comforting drinks to help you decide…
Best for...Immune system
The colder months can make you more likely to pick up that dreaded cold, so keep your immune system fighting fit with Pau d’Arco. This infusion has been used by rainforest tribes for over two thousand years to help support the body’s defences and provide a source of antioxidants.
Best for...Strengthening the body & boosting energy
When the days get dark at 4pm and it’s chilly outside, we want nothing more than to sit on the sofa under a blanket and do absolutely nothing all day. Give your body a kick start and bring a bit of life back into your days with Damiana Leaf.
Used by the modern populations of both Central and South America to help maintain feelings of sexual wellbeing, Damiana Leaf is known for strengthening the body and supporting energetic alertness.
Best for...Digestive system
Christmas is that time of year where we all eat your body weight in delicious food, so keep your digestive system in tip-top condition with Espinheira Santa. In Brazil, it is commonly consumed as a leaf tea after meals and has a very pleasant taste, making it a perfect non-alcoholic digestif.
Best for…Maintaining a healthy weight
Mince pies, cheese boards and all those other festive treats may be delicious, but they’re not so great for the waistline. Help maintain a healthy body weight with Yerba Mate. With antioxidants, vitamins and minerals in abundance, Yerba Mate has stimulating and tonic properties that contribute to the resistance against physical and mental fatigue.
Best for...Balancing blood sugar
Another tea perfect as a non-alcoholic digestif, Pata de Vaca is often consumed after meals in Brazil, helping to cleanse the palate and balance blood sugar levels.
Antioxidants help the body combat the effects of free-radical damage to cells. Get your daily dose with Tayuya tea or supplement-strength Graviola Leaf tea. Both are native to the Amazon rainforest in South America, and are popular in Brazil.
Best for...Flexible joints
Naturally warming Cat’s Claw makes the perfect companion throughout Autumn and Winter, contributing to a healthy immune system and helping to maintain flexible joints, which can seize up in the colder weather.
Our Cat’s Claw tea bags contain added Cinnamon, Ginger, Cardamon and Orange peel, giving the tea a pleasant, warming taste which will make you want to curl up in front of the fire with a good book.
Best for…Liver & kidney support
Also known as ‘The Stone Breaker’, Quebra Pedra is used in Indian ayurvedic practices and has a naturally smooth taste. It is used in the Amazon rainforest and other tropical areas of the world for liver and kidney support.
