All over the world, since ancient times, tisanes, plant-based herbal teas, have been found to hold abilities to boost your health, and contain certain remedies for illnesses.
Herbal infusions are different from traditional teas in that they are a combination of botanicals. Traditional tea originates from varieties of the Camellia sinesis plant. The “tea plant” or “tea bush” is used to make teas such as green tea, black tea, red tea, or white tea.
Herbal teas are made by blending different plants, steeping their leaves, flowers, stems, berries or any part of a plant that contains the right active ingredients in water, and allowing their essence to seep out.
Drinking flavorful and refreshing herbal infusions can be a natural and gentle way to improve your health and rebalance your body. The teas from Clair’s Teas of Joy contain a wide spectrum of powerful antioxidants (such as hesperidin, anthocyanins, Vitamin C, ginerols, polyphenois, caechins) and natural amino acids (like theanine and organic acids). All of these anti-oxidants work cohesively to protect your body from harmful free radicals which are molecules responsible for ageing. They also help to activate the detoxification ability of the body. Our teas are 100% natural, free from added sugar, artificial sweeteners, and artificial perfumes. The wholesome nature of our herbal teas make them an excellent source of hydration and an alternative to processed drinks and sodas.
It is fascinating the different remedies found in different parts of the world. Dandelion leaves are used as a diuretic in England. Rooibos, found in South Africa, aids in clearing allergies, releasing stress, and reducing hypertension. Lavender, from South of France, has a lovely smell and is used as a natural sedative. Pau d’Arco is a flowering tree from South America and its bark is an anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory.
Clair’s Teas of Joy takes herbal teas one step further by carefully blending botanicals to provide maximum benefit and then creating a collection of herbal infusions that complement one another, further bringing the body and mind into balance. The benefits of these collections can be felt on both a mental and biological level.
We recommend beginning with our Blossom Collection. This combination of herbal infusions builds up your energy. You begin each morning with the Emotional Balance, followed by the Immune Booster at midday, and enjoy the Relax & Sleep at the end of the day. The Relax & Sleep encourages a more restful night’s sleep so that you can wake up refreshed and ready to face a new day. At the end of 30 days of the Blossom Collection, clients report feeling revitalized and refreshed.
