What does being in good ‘health’ mean to you? For The Tea Centre, health is not merely the absence of illness or injury. Rather, it’s all the auxiliary habits (and brews!) you can accrue to ensure your mind and body are working at their best.
Wealth is an accurate metaphor for wellness, no? It seems like one obtains and retains wealth through investing in their businesses. Swap businesses for your body, and you have The Tea Centre’s mentality when it comes to investing in quality herbal tisanes for wellbeing!
While you won’t catch our loose leaf experts pulling on leg warmers and firing up their treadmills on the regular (sorry, Jane Fonda), they sure can flex when it comes to recommending teas for health. When it’s a sniffly nose or an upset tummy, we have the top tea picks for you.

Your inflamed sinuses have met their match in Breathe Easy tea. Taking inspiration from Ayurvedic teachings, this herbal tisane brings together turmeric, liquorice, black peppercorns, and woolflower. All of which are great for reducing sinus inflammation.
