Senna mix

Our Senna Mix Fittea is a beautiful blend of herbal Senna, Liquorice and Mint! It can help promote digestive health by calming stomach aches, cramps and digestive discomfort. It also has laxative effects so it is best to drink Senna tea before your evening meal. It is claimed that this tea can help with weight loss by burning excess fat and suppressing appetite.

When brewed hot leave it to steep for 5-10mins or overnight if cold brewed. Our Senna mix is tasty on its own but you can add a squeeze of lemon or some fresh mint leaves for an extra burst of flavour.

Yerba mate

Yerba Mate is a popular South American tea with a strong woody flavour. It comes from a plant called Ilex paraguarensis which is indigenous to the Paranese rainforest. It has recently become popular due to its links with weight loss. Mate suppresses appetite and has thermogenic properties which means it increases the rate the body burns fat. We recommend drinking Yerba Mate before your breakfast to set you up for the day. As well as aiding weight loss its properties include promoting skin health, aiding muscle function and improving heart health.

You can drink Yerba Mate on its own or cold brew a cup and add it to a healthy banana smoothie.yerba-mate-800x800

 

Lemon verbena

Lemon Verbena is a soothing citrus tea which is best just before you go to bed. The health properties of this citrus Fittea include weight loss, reducing muscle damage, improving digestive health and aiding joint function. Lemon Verbena is also very helpful this time of year when coughs and colds are common. It boosts the immune system, has anti-inflammatory and decongestant properties and can help soothe a sore throat. Furthermore, Lemon Verbena has antioxidant effects which bring a multitude of health benefits and preventative actions.

This Fittea has mildly sedative effects if taken before bed with a spoonful of honey. You could also serve it iced with some fresh mint for a refreshing beverage. And don’t throw that teabag away! Cooled used tea bags can be used to reduce puffiness around the eyes.
