Autumn is officially here. A season that for some represents a moment of melancholy, the end of summer and a prelude to the beginnings of winter. On the 21st September we celebrated the equinox and the beginning of this new season. But melancholy must be put aside, for autumn represents grapes and winemaking, the harvest, and the warm and spectacular colours in which nature be-robes herself.
To welcome this new season we would like to offer five autumnal herbal teas for your delectation. Part of our Sweet Harmony collection, these will allow you to plunge into a feeling of wellbeing. This is why our new and beautiful packaging represents “Tim Wellings”, the dream diver. A person who loves to live life to the full and in perfect harmony. Surely one of our herbal teas will be perfect for you.
For a good night’s sleep – SLEEPY
The end of the summer holidays with all that that entails, so much to do, and a change of seasons... all these things can be detrimental to our sleep patterns, causing restlessness and resulting in weariness of body and mind. In other words it can make us irritable and tetchy.
This is where our herbal tea comes in. It contains no theine, the caffeine normally found in tea, and none of the stimulants usually associated with tea. SLEEPY is the ideal tisane to sip just before you go to bed because it will help you relax your mind and body. It is made using a blend of chamomile, rose petals, fennel, lemon balm, lime blossom and lavender.
For detoxification – DETOX
Though it is not always either pleasant or enjoyable, detoxification is a way of loving ourselves. Think back to a time when perhaps you have gone over the top a little with alcohol, or smoked too much, or have over taxed yourself causing stress. Or maybe a time when you over did it a little with good food, causing you to feel weighed down, bloated and tired.
Detoxification is a procedure whereby we help our body to regain its natural equilibrium and autumn is an ideal time to do this. It will give an energy reserve in preparation for the winter months ahead. If we consider detoxification as a period of privation, this herbal tea will come to our aid. As well as being good for you, our DETOX I also delicious! Made using a blend of peppermint, chamomile, liquorice, echinacea, burdock root and dandelion leaves this herbal tea can be enjoyed at any time during the day and first thing in the morning.

To help our digestion – DIGESTIVE
Our eating habits change somewhat during autumn and especially in winter. Our meals become richer and more substantial. We tend to favour red meats, stews, spicy food, soups, fried food, roasts and desserts made with a good dosing of chocolate and various other goodies. This can cause us a heaviness in the stomach making us feel weary and finally affecting our digestion.
It may be that you go out for dinner and come home feeling you have over indulged, you feel swollen and heavy, you sleep badly and wake up feeling worse. How can we remedy this? Our DIGESTIVE herbal tea will help when sufferING these slight inconveniences, it can be the ace up our sleeves when we know that we are going to be a little more intemperate than usual.
