I was starting to feel quite rattled last week with the flurry of end of year functions and endless to-do lists when I received two beautifully packaged Buddha teas to try- the first, a Chakra tea and the second a CBD tea (the natural constituent of the cannabis plant).
These Buddha teas are now available here and they offer a selection of teas that are made from pure, natural ingredients, offering a multitude of health benefits- perfect for the party season. There are no artificial flavours in these teas and consequently they are mild-tasting- but that doesn't mean that they aren't jam-packed with properties that aid the immune system, the digestive system, gut issues, pain and inflammation, hyperactivity and sleep issues.
Because the range is extensive, there should be something for everyone- I tried the CBD Chamomile Blend tea (twice now) and enjoyed a really good night's sleep- apart from the CBD medicinal benefits, some of which are to decrease anxiety, inflammation and pain, this blend helps with sleep and relaxation, menstrual pain, diabetes and lowering blood sugar.
The Chakra teas- Chakra being the Sanskrit word for the seven central points of energy that reside within us, helping to balance our physical, emotional and spiritual state- these teas are carefully blended with herbs that enhance each individual chakra. I drank a cup of the Third Eye Chakra containing Organic Eyebright, Jasmine Flower, Passion flower, Spearmint and Star Anise. This was spicier tasting and offers a multitude of benefits, including colds, nausea, stress, fatigue and bloating (all great for the silly season).
It's so true about tea and sympathy- the soothing effect of tea- but there is an overwhelming amount of choice, so consider this: I like the fact that these Buddha teas are packaged in bleach-free tea bags, they are not genetically modified, MSG free and all the packaging is 100% recyclable. The company is devoted to offering teas that support consumer and planetary health.
Definitely my cup of tea.
Retail from R270-R300 per box- available at selected health stores.
