Chamomile

For tummy trouble

Known for its soothing qualities, chamomile is calming for an upset tummy. It increases levels of glycine, an amino acid, and acts as an antispasmodic.

Rooibos

Improves skin condition

Rooibos contains alpha hydroxy acid which is good for your complexion. It also absorbs sebum (oil) and can be used to help irritations such as itchy skin, eczema, sunburns and acne.

Heath & Heather organic Rooibos, £2.25 for 20 sachets

Liquorice

Supports the respiratory system

Liquorice contains glycosides, which are acids that can reduce inflammation. Irritating coughs, asthma and chest infections can benefit from the soothing and calming properties.

Hibiscus

Good for the blood

Studies have shown the flavonoids found in this brightly coloured tisane contain antioxidants known to reduce the dangerous build up of fatty deposits in the arteries.

Oolong

Aids weight loss

This tea is thought to burn calories through a process called lipoylsis. This enables the body to use fat as its primary fuel source, rather than the sugar found in starchy carbohydrates.
