So many people don’t appreciate herbal tea because they haven’t yet experienced the true deliciousness that herbal tea be. Good herbal tea is not only delicious, it is also a wonderful way to detoxify our digestive track and keep it healthy.
Fruit flavoured teas are not herbal teas, they are usually made with synthetic ingredients and therefore not good for our general health at all. Also watch out for so called herbal teas that come in teabags, always read the ingredients, the only ingredients listed should be the herbs the tea is supposed to have, for example, Fennel & Peppermint Tea should only have fennel and peppermint on the ingredient list, absolutely nothing else.
Herbal tea should always be organic. We are drinking the tea to be healthier not to contaminate ourselves with pesticides. Herbs are picked, dried and packed, whatever pesticides and other nasty chemicals the herbs were sprayed with throughout their life cycle stays on the herb, so when drinking a cup of supposedly healthy tea we are in fact also drinking the chemicals that the herb had been sprayed with.
Good organic herbal teas are full of good things such as antioxidants, vitamins and vital minerals. They are a great way to give your digestive track a daily gentle cleanse.
My family are great tea lovers, my mum can name a tea for every ailment and so I grew up drinking all kinds of tea that my mum would lovingly prepare. Peppermint for digestion, Olive leaf for stress, Lemon balm for anxiety… I could go on and on for a very long time!
My brother who since becoming a father decided to also become an organic farmer in order to provide his family with the best possible organic produce, has now become my herbal tea grower. He has a little land in Portugal with amazing soil, he then irrigates the small crops with water out of a well that brings water from deep into the earth that is full of minerals. Needless to say that this precious tea is possibly amongst the most delicious and nutritious tea in the world. Jorj and I have been drinking this tea at home and sharing it with our clients at the Soveral Clinic and are excited to now be selling it.
Our tea is a blend of Lemon Balm, Melissa and Peppermint. It’s refreshing; it cleanses the breath and the digestive track and can be drunk hot or as iced tea. It also has a wonderful calming effect that allows for a clearer head and a healthier body.
