Aches & Pains – Herbal Tea
This is a tea that may ease soreness and pain and is ideal for people with arthritic or joint pain. We have used is White willow bark – this is the herb pharmaceutical companies use to make aspirin. To do this, they take out the silicic acid component from white willow bark.
The other ingredients we have added are Yarrow, which is healing, and Nettle, which is a blood cleanser and Tumeric, which is a natural anti-inflammatory.
Turmeric has been used as a healing aid for thousands of years in Ayruvedic medicine, the ancient medicine of India, and is now becoming recognised as a valid natural treatment in Western countries for a variety of health issues.
*Not recommended when taking aspirin or blood thinners
Ingredients: Tumeric, White willow bark, Yarrow & Nettle.

Peppermint is stimulating and gives the tea a nice refreshing flavour and Yerba Mate, which can help with increased energy and mental focus.

The herbs I have used in the Cough tea are referred to as the “singers herbs”.
Thyme , which is anti-bacterial, and Marshmallow root soothes the throat and will settle most throat irritation, including an itchy throat from hayfever. Marshmallow root, in particular, is a mucilage so it coats the throat with a gel to ease any irritation. Other ingredients are Sage, which is antiseptic and Chamomile which is calming. This tea is ideal for people who use their voice professionally like singers and public speakers. It is also a safe alternative for babies and children with a sore throat and cough.

Lucky Lemon – Herbal Tea
Hot or cold, this is a delicious tea. If you like the taste of lemon, you will love this tea. We have combined Lemon Myrtle, Lemon Verbena, Lemon Balm and Lemongrass. They are cooling, calming and relaxing herbs. We love to cook with this blend, adding the herbs to breadcrumbs, rolling fillets of fish in it and lightly frying.
Jeanette told me “ Love your LUCKY LEMON. Along with some local honey, it made my past week bearable with bronchial/asthma. Thanks so much.
Ingredients: Lemon Myrtle, Lemon Verbena, Lemon Balm & Lemongrass.
Menopause – Herbal Tea
Hot flushes and night sweats – what every middle aged woman dreads. These symptoms are caused by the hypothalamus gland responding to fluctuating levels of estrogen in the blood.
The hypothalamus gland is the part of the brain that controls body temperature and our thirst control centre, which regulates our hydration. Sage is the herb for the flushing woman, with Lemon Balm which is calming, Yarrow, to help to control the circulatory system and Red Clover which can help to regulate the hormones.
“I tried the menopause tea last month at the market and I’ve been having a pot of it every evening and it’s been great. I have been a lot less flushes so I have been able sleep a bit and it’s really good. Awesome!” – Bernie from Lakes Entrance
Ingredients: Sage, Lemon balm, Yarrow, Red Clover
Mint Magic – Herbal Tea
Spearmint and Peppermint leaves combine to make a soothing and delicious blend. These are both digestive herbs and to add a peppery hint we have added a dash of Roasted Chicory root and Cinnamon. Iced tea in summer or warming winter drink, any time is a good time for a mint drink.
Ingredients: Spearmint, Peppermint, Roasted chicory root & Cinnamon.
Red Chai – Herbal Tea
The Red Chai tea is a delicious caffeine-free chai made with Rooibos, the South African red blush plant.
Mixed with fennel and the chai spices of Cinnamon, ginger, cardamom pods, peppercorns and cloves, this is a refreshing chai drink that can enjoyed by adults and children. High in antioxidants.
Chai is spiced tea and the spices can vary but this is a simple chai tea that is not stimulating so you can enjoy this chai in the evening.
Ingredients: Organic Roobios (caffeine-free), Fennel, Cinnamon, Cardamon pods, Peppercorns & Cloves.
Skin – Herbal Tea
Most skin issues are related to the liver so we have used the herbs Nettle, (also known as stinging nettle) Yarrow and Burdock which are liver tonics and blood cleansers.
We have added Spearmint for the taste and because it is digestive too.
This tea may be helpful for various skin issues such as acne, eczema and teenage pimples.
When we talk to customers about skin issues, we also discuss their diet. For people with eczema, it is important to cut out sugar. There is a real dynamic between sugar and the gut and sugar is always the common link when there is skin irritation. You can read more about skin issues on HTA’s website Blog “More than skin deep.”
For teenagers with acne, we recommend they eliminate dairy from their diet because their liver is not processing dairy fats and is using the skin to help to eliminate the fats. Drinking the skin tea to help clean the blood and replacing dairy with nut milks will make a significant difference.
Ingredients: Organic Nettle, Yarrow, Burdock & Spearmint.
Sleep – Herbal Tea
It’s not surprising that sleep, or lack of it, is a big issue for many people. The herbs we have used in this tea are Skullcap, which is a herb to stop the mind chatter. The most common problem people have is the brain not shutting down and this is because the adrenal glands are still in overdrive. Skullcap calms down a busy mind. Chamomile and Lemon Balm are relaxing and Passionflower can have a sedative effect. This is a good blend to give children who find it difficult to settle at night. Add some of the tea to warm almond milk and a little honey as a bedtime drink.
Ingredients: Skullcap, Lemon balm, Chamomile, Passionflower.
Spearmint & Licorice Root – Herbal Tea
This must be one of the top teas as far as flavor goes for people who enjoy Spearmint. This tea is like a digestive tonic so it’s ideal after meals. Licorice root has a sweetness that many people enjoy. The taste of this tea is of the Spearmint but with a sensation in the back of the throat from the Licorice root. Very good for any throat irritations as well.
Ingredients: Spearmint leaves, Licorice root.
Stress Head – Herbal Tea
This tea may be helpful during stressful and traumatic times. The Hawthorn leaf will regulate blood pressure because when we are stressed, our blood pressure rises. The Siberian Ginseng and Withania will calm down the adrenal glands and the Yarrow will calm a stressed tummy. A stressed tummy is different from an upset tummy from food as the nerve endings end in the gut. That’s what causes butterflies in the tummy!
Ingredients: Hawthorn leaf, Siberian ginseng, Withania, Yarrow.
Tummy – Herbal Tea
Peppermint is a great herb for helping with bloating, heartburn, indigestion, flatulence – all are digestive issues that indicate that all is night right in the gut. I’ve added Dandelion leaf and Milk Thistle, the liver herbs because a lot of these digestive issues go back to the liver.
Ingredients: Peppermint, Dandelion leaf, Milk thistle.
Weight – Herbal Tea
This is a delicious addition to a healthy eating and exercise plan.
Cleavers is a natural diuretic that works on the lymphatic system and can help with water retention, Spearmint is delicious and digestive, Green tea can stimulate the metabolism and Olive leaf is high in anti-oxidants.
Along with dietary changes, like eliminating sugar, wheat, dairy and caffeine, and getting your walking shoes on, this tea can work really well.
Ingredients: Cleavers, Spearmint, Green tea, Olive leaf.
