Detox organic herbal tea
Been a little naughty? Our naturopath formulated detox organic herbal tea helps support your body’s natural detoxification process. The herbs used in this blend work together harmoniously to help flush accumulated toxins from the body and support oxidative stress. This caffeine-free wellness tea is perfect for anytime of the day.
Lemon verbena – Rich in phenolic compounds (powerful antioxidants) which protect against free radicals. The phenolic compounds help reduce oxidative stress by aiding the body in detoxifying and neutralising the harmful effects of free radicals.
Nettle leaf – A gentle diuretic, helping the body to process and flush away any toxins. Its diuretic properties can help decrease fluid retention. Nettle leaf is also a great plant source of chlorophyll, potassium, iron and magnesium.
St Mary Thistle – Used as a liver tonic and protector, supporting the liver to efficiently detox. It is a digestive tonic and cholagogue (improves the production and release of bile to aid digestion). It is also an antioxidant, helping to mop up those free radicals.
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. Also beneficial to the skin, dandelion can reduces hormonal acne and may also protect the skin from UVB rays.
Burdock root – Traditionally, burdock root has been used as a blood purifier, clearing toxins from the bloodstream. It has bitter properties, which encourage healthy digestion and support liver function and by supporting the detoxification process in the body.
Lemon peel – The vitamin C in lemon peels is not only great for boosting the immune system, it contributes to healthy looking skin. Plus, lemon peels contains anti-oxidants that fight the appearances of aging.

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.
