Life gets on top of the best of us, and we all have our coping mechanisms: retail therapy, a few glasses of wine, a bar of chocolate. If only these were activities we could indulge in every day!
We’ve developed our Relax Tea for those times when you need a moment of escape that truly nourishes your body and spirit. This relaxing organic herbal tea blend is based on a time-honoured German pharmacopoeia recipe. Valerian root, lemon balm and other natural ingredients have traditionally been used to relieve feelings of stress or anxiety, helping with restlessness and sleepless nights.
For a serene, balanced outlook on life, enjoy whenever you feel the need to bring some ease and tranquility into your day. A cup before bed will also work wonders on troubled sleepers, sending you off into a deeply restful slumber.
Our 100% biodegradable tea jar viskrings (eco-friendly tamper seals) are made from extruded cellulose that originates from sustainably sourced eucalyptus wood pulp. This material is FSC and PEFC certified and is sourced from trees that are grown in areas that practice sustainable forest management.
Valerian root: valerian has a long history of use as a sleep aid. An infusion of the roots is known to calm the nerves and provide an increased sense of tranquillity.
Passionflower: passionflower has been used traditionally throughout the world to help with cases of insomnia and sleep problems.
Lemon balm leaf: lemon balm is a member of the mint family, traditionally consumed as an infusion of the leaves to combat anxiety, ease digestion and promote relaxation. Lemon balm has also been known to promote sleep.
Peppermint leaf: peppermint is a hybrid mint, cultivated around the world. Traditionally, an infusion of the leaves is used to calm digestive problems and is often combined with other herbs to ease anxiety. It has a refreshing and uplifting effect on both the mind and body.
Enjoy whenever you need a moment of calm throughout the day, and before bed for a restful night's sleep.
For a moment of tranquillity, take 2-3 teaspoons and steep in freshly boiled water for 3-5 minutes according to taste.
Can also be enjoyed as a cooling drink in warmer weather: prepare as above, leave to infuse overnight in the fridge and serve over ice.
