Tea Forté organic herbal Chamomile tea is made with Egyptian chamomile, renowned for its distinctive apple-like taste. The organic rosehips impart an enticing balance of sweet and tart. The organic lemongrass and lemon verbena provide a clean, fresh and bold citrus canvas for the infusion, whilst the organic licorice root contributes a natural sweetness to the tea and adds depth of character.
Chamomile tea is known for its unique ability to calm, whilst lemon verbena and lemongrass are thought to encourage relaxation and to encourage sleep. Immune-supporting Vitamin C is provided by the hibiscus and rosehips. Hibiscus is known to be a very healthy herb which is high in antioxidants. In fact, the level of antioxidants in hibiscus is comparable to that found in red wine, which is increasingly recognised for its cardio protective benefits. Hibiscus may also reduce cholesterol level, reduce the risk of heart disease and lower blood pressure. Licorice root has an impressive list of well-documented uses including the relief of fatigue, depression, colds, and the flu.
Long respected for its calming and restorative properties, chamomile infusions make a wonderful nightcap. Its mild flavour soothes the throat, the stomach as well as the nerves.
A dollop of honey brings out a hint of spiciness and some vanilla overtones. Chamomile pairs well with shortbread cookies, apples and bananas.
