Our naturopath spent days formulating this loose leaf tissane (herbal tea).

Delicately layered with sweet, floral, tart, and earthy flavour notes this loose leaf tea is divine served both hot and cold. Its caffeine free so you can enjoy any time of the day. Add 1 - 2  heaped teaspoons per 250ml (1 cup) of boiled filtered water to a strainer and steep for 5 minutes. Make sure to dig into the bottom of the pack as the heavier ingredients tend to settle there. Add fresh orange, or lemon and ginger slices to make all the flavours sing.

The Beauty Benefits of

SENCHA GREEN TEA

Sencha Green Tea has been consumed for centuries and is steeped in ceremony and ritual. From anti-ageing to cell repair, it's not only delicious, it has superpowers when it comes to beauty and skin health.

The active beauty components are polyphenols (also called catchetins), L-theanine, caffeine and tannins, all believed to benefit the skin. The most studied is EGCG, a catchetin with strong antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-microbial properties. When used on a regular basis sencha green tea may help with the following beauty benefits.

  • Protect against free radical damage and premature ageing

  • Reduce skin inflammation - help calm and soothe

  • Improve skin texture and appearance of fine wrinkles

  • Improve complexion and skin elasticity

  • Prevent and reduce acne

  • Stimulate hair growth and prevent hair loss

  • Teeth and gum health

  • Reduce the signs of sun damage, such as hyperpigmentation and rough texture

  • Increase metabolism and help burn fat.

Apart from ingesting green tea, you can also apply topically. Use a poultice of used tea leaves to help reduce dark circles and puffiness around the eyes. Use cold tea as a face wash for skin outbreaks or acne. Make a face mask by mixing used leaves, or tea, with some raw Manuka honey and leave for 10 minutes. Make sure everything is cooled prior to use so you don't burn your skin.


When making green tea don’t use boiling water, the best temperature is just before boiling point (70ºc - 80ºc) and steep for 1 - 2 minutes. If the water is too hot you can destroy some of the beneficial compounds and subtle flavour notes. If you steep for too long, the tea can taste bitter. Use 1 heaped teaspoon per cup (250ml) of filtered water. Always keep green tea in a cool dry place away from sunlight as it is sensitive to oxidisation.

Green tea contains caffeine and compounds that can cause adverse side effects if consumed in excessive amounts. We recommend drinking no more than 2-3 cups per day for optimal health.
