Lemon Myrtle, also known as Sweet Verbena, is an ingredient from a subtropical plant only found in Australia and has been used for medicine and flavouring in Australia for hundreds of years. Lemon myrtle is a powerful anti-microbial. Antimicrobials kill and/or stop the growth of microorganisms and are commonly used in medicine to control or fight infections.
We know that the citral in Lemon Myrtle is extremely pure, and this results in antimicrobial properties so strong that undiluted lemon myrtle oils can be considered toxic. This is not a worry with lemon myrtle teas and infusions as the concentration of oils released from the brewed leaves are completely safe and provide a much lighter way to help fight infections.
Viral infections are very different to bacterial infections, but Lemon Myrtle oils and leaves have been widely used in the treatment of both. Antivirals attack viruses, either helping to prevent them taking hold in the body, or to cause them to die more quickly, and infusions made from Lemon Myrtle have been used by natural health advocates to complement this process.
One of the more famous properties of Lemon Myrtle is that it is anti-inflammatory and therefore frequently used in the treatment of congestion and reduction of mucus. By helping to reduce inflammation, Lemon Myrtle can be used to help with light pain and discomfort caused by inflammation without the use of painkillers and steroids.
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 about we call it pink lemonade!" I announce with great enthusiasm. I'm sure I've hit the nail on the head this time, it's perfectly brilliant! I think? Yes? Ok, please, please just this once, maybe? Nope, I'm being too hopeful. No. Definitely not. Shot down again. They'll think we're selling soft drink, is the response. My darling husband, we have this wonderful way of, how do I say it? Working together. Unfortunately, his feedback is usually right. I grit my teeth and go back to the drawing board.
I love the idea of pink lemonade, so I'm not giving up yet. It's a happy place for me and I know it's coming from the 1980's, I can see an old pic, clearly filtered by a dose of Instagram. There's a kid standing next to a boxy navy blue Ford station wagon wearing tiny red shorts, a stripy yellow tshirt that's slightly too small and a fringe that really, it belongs in the 1980's and should stay there. And the kid is holding a bottle of Old Fashioned Pink Lemonade. The kid's smile says it's even better than a new Barbie Doll, because frankly, we know that's never going to happen, at least until your birthday, and a bottle of pink soft drink just might be possible, pretty please mum, just this once!!!
But this is Tielka, after all, it's time to fancy things up a bit and pink lemonade is going to have to fall in line. Unfortunately pink lemonade sounds rubbish in French, no fancy pants translation there. Take two is Italian and hold a tick this is fabulous!!! The Italian version even uses a word that sounds like rose (you guessed it, this one has a dash of rose added!). My happiness is complete, Limonada Rosa is new, fabulous and here to stay.
