Napiers Wintertime Booster Herbal Tea Blend
A pleasant tasting and stimulating tea with echinacea to give you a boost when you're feeling run down.
If you're feeling run down it's all too easy to succumb to sniffles and sneezes. Our Wintertime Herbal Tea, with echinacea, pau d'arco, lemon balm and other herbs, is particularly popular during the winter months but can be used all year round when you're feeling run down and in need of a boost.
Many teas are sold in teabags these days. Our Napiers herbal teas are not and there are good reasons why not. A teabag only contains around 2 or 3 grams of very dry, finely chopped or powdered herbs. We believe that not chopping herbs into tiny pieces, which dries out their natural oils, helps to preserve their beneficial goodness.
We also like to vary the strength of our teas. We all come in different shapes, states or sizes, and so does our taste and need for a good cup of tea!
It’s very easy to use loose tea and doesn’t have to involve chopping down a tree to make the paper for a tea bag! Use a tea strainer or tea ball.
Compost loves loose too!
