Detox organic herbal tea
Our naturopath formulated detox organic herbal tea contains plant compounds that support healthy liver function. This caffeine-free tea is perfect for anytime of the day or whenever you feel your body might benefit from a light cleanse.
Lemon verbena – Traditionally used to support digestion and relieve digestive complaints. It has anti-spasmodic qualities which can relieve symptoms of indigestion, bloating and flatulence.
Nettle leaf – A gentle diuretic, helping the body to process and flush away toxins and decrease fluid retention. Nettle leaf is also a great plant source of chlorophyll, potassium, iron and magnesium.
St Mary Thistle – Contains powerful antioxidants that exert its protective effects on the liver by inhibiting toxins from binding and being taken up by the liver cells.
Dandelion root – A source of beta-carotene, vitamin C, fibre, potassium, iron, calcium, magnesium, zinc, and phosphorus. Dandelion root helps to gently detoxify the liver by removing toxic buildup in the body.
Burdock root – The compounds that give burdock its bitter taste help stimulate bile production, essential for optimal liver health and toxin removal.
Lemon peel – The vitamin C in lemon peels is not only great for boosting the immune system, it contributes to healthy looking skin.

How to brew the perfect cup of tea
Measurements & ratios
The recommended ratio is 1 teaspoon per cup of hot tea. If you like it nice and strong, add an extra teaspoon and brew for the recommended time.
Save your milk for black teas – most green and herbals are best served straight up.
Swill a little hot water in your teapot or cup, then discard. This will keep your teawares from cooling your tea too quickly. Green and herbal teas prefer 80°C, so just combine 20% cold water with 80% boiling water.
- Black tea & Oolong 100°C 2-4 minutes
- Green tea 80°C 1-3 minutes
- Herbal & floral tisanes 80°C 3-5 minutes
- Rooibos & honeybush tisanes 100°C 3-5 minutes
Loose leaf vs. tea bags
One of the main reasons we love loose leaf tea is the flavour. Usually loose leaf tea is higher quality than the tea in tea bags. Sometimes, tea bags are used to disguise lower quality tea leaves, but with loose leaf you can’t get away with that.
Most commercial tea bags are created using plastics, bleaches, glues, staples and other nasty things that are best avoided in your daily cuppa.
Another reason is because we love the environment. We hate to have a compostable material such as organic tea & herbs trapped inside little plastic pouches. Our teas are completely organic, so be sure to empty your loose tea leaves into the compost or the garden.
