The simple herbs in our Happy Tea are so simple and natural that the Chinese have been enjoying the benefits of since the first emperor was in nappies.
I’d like to talk about these herbs in general and how traditionally, they have been consumed.
Barbary Wolfberry Fruit or Go Qi Zi as it’s known in China, is a very effective little berry that helps to cleanse and tone the blood. For this reason it helps to awaken the body and the senses leaving you feeling fabulous. It also helps that it’s a little package full of antioxidants – the very things that help to clean up the damage that stress leaves behind.
Another herb here and a favourite Chinese fruit of mine – is Shan Zha or Hawthorn Fruit. These little delicious apple like fruits are amazing on digestion. They help to move any stagnated or accumulated food and have a very calming effect on the gut in general. Shan Zha can be used to calm down a sensitive stomach or if there are digestive issues. It’s very gentle and safe and tastes delicious!
Both Chrysanthemum and Rose Flower both have an extremely calming effect on the body. Chrysanthemum is known for its ability to brighten the eyes and awaken the senses. Is used in Chinese Medicine to clear out heat from the body when perhaps there are headaches or rashes (from heat like sun exposure). Again they both help to calm the digestive system but what’s more, Rose Flower assists in aiding menstrual issues like PMS and menstrual pain. It is able to facilitate blood flow around the body to overall improve circulation and generally support the body – this creating a heightened sense of wellbeing.
Lemon is an all time cleansing favourite – when the body is well cleansed, it works on an entirely different level – for the better. Lemon is useful for this reason – it helps to also brighten the eyes and give a sense of wakefulness as it invigorates. It’s quite commonly recognised a glass of warm lemon water first up in the morning helps to kick along the liver. This also helps the body to digest and ensure the bowels are happy too, eliminating bloating.
Last but not least is black tea. Black tea is wonderful as it generally supports the immune system and is also full of antioxidants. Together this special blend will have you singing your way through the day and your insides totally loving you for taking such good care of yourself”.
