A refreshing green tea blend for the Spring lover and a remedial herbal tisane for the wannabe Spring lovers.
The sweet scent of Spring is in the air but for many it’s not all sunbeams and flower garlands with hay fever the ever present bane of the allergy inclined.
Because we want everyone to enjoy spring (it‘s the best time of the year for garden tea parties after all), we have teas for the lovers and the soon-to-be-converted-to lovers of the season.
If the symptoms of hay fever are leaving your nose the worse for wear, then our herbal tisane, Breathe Easy, could help you do just that. The soothing effects of Breathe Easy are helpful for minimising the effects of pesky pollen on sinuses.
A well-balanced blend of thyme, fennel, liquorice root, mallow root, cinnamon, lemon peel, cardamom, wool flowers, cloves, black peppercorns, and turmeric offer antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties to gently ease congestion and respiratory problems.
This active combination of herbs and spices are commonly used in the holistic therapy of Ayurvedic medicine and make for a deliciously spicy, yet subtly sweet infusion.
If in fact you love the idea of a fresh Spring growth, then you may enjoy a bouquet of flora in your cup as much as you do in the outdoors. Our ever popular green tea blend, Japanese Garden, is the embodiment of Spring as fruity and floral aromas highlight each sweet sip.
The refreshing mixture of green tea and white tea sets the backdrop for the tantalising flavours of a fruit basket. Pieces of pineapple, strawberry, mallow leaves, papaya, and rose petals further accentuate these juicy notes. And as an iced tea, with the addition of fresh strawberries and orange slices, this blend absolutely sparkles.
Get your teapot, get your friends, and get outside to get the garden party started. With teas like these, everyone will be getting into the Spring of things.
Blooming tea balls are also a beautiful embodiment of spring. Learn more about these pretty teas in this "Blooming Fabulous" post.
