Certified Fairtrade organic lemongrass, certified fairtrade organic ginger and certified organic lemon myrtle
This classic combination perfectly balances refreshing lemongrass with the gentle spice of ginger root and organic lemon myrtle, making the ideal caffeine free infusion for any time of the day.
Lemongrass has a cooling energy which helps to soothe your stomach and keeps your digestive functions in check. It contains a component called citral that helps to digest food. It has been used as an ancient remedy for all stomach problems in Chinese medicine like bloating, constipation or indigestion. Additionally, lemongrass is nature’s formula for taming high blood pressure. It is rich in potassium which increases the production of urine in our body, which in turn stimulates blood circulation and lowers blood pressure. By increasing blood circulation, it also helps in purifying the liver. Lemongrass is also known to limit cholesterol absorption from the intestines, thus promoting overall heart health.
PLASTIC-FREE TEA BAGS
Did you know that brewing a plastic tea bag at 95°C releases around 11.6 billion microplastics, which are tiny pieces of plastic between 100 nanometres and 5 millimetres in size, into a single cup(source)?
Tielka's plastic-free tea bag fabric comes from a sustainable, bio-renewable source. They also opted not to seal their tea bags with harmful glue, but by ultrasound.
Tielka's tea bags are also industrially compostable.
Use one pyramid per person. Brew with 200ml freshly boiled water and infuse for up to three minutes.
Note From The Maker
How do you make a boring tea fabulous? This was my dilemma. I hate boring tea. It's boring. And definitely not fabulous, or fancy. Unfortunately we had so many requests for a lemongrass and ginger blend (boring!), I really had to get my butt into action and create something fabulously worthy of the Tielka name. Thankfully the answer was simple: lemon myrtle. Lemon myrtle is just sublime. It reminds me of lemon sorbet gelato, but without that nasty sugary hit.
I can smell it right now (it's in a tub conveniently stored about a metre away from my desk) and the effect on me is very similar to seeing pictures of baby elephants. Seriously, who doesn't feel joy when they see a baby elephant pic? Last week we had a massive box of organic lemon myrtle delivered to the Tielka warehouse and the courier commented how delightful his van had smelt all the way from his depot. I happily accepted this little load of joy and I'm sure he was disappointed to part ways with that divine lemon myrtle. So I decided to add a dose of lemon myrtle to the traditional lemongrass and ginger duo. That's much better. It's now proud part of the Tielka Tea Collection.
