Herbal Tea

Introducing After Par-Tea!

After Par-Tea is the newest organic herbal tea in our online store. The ultimate recovery tea. Naturopathically blended from organic herbs to help you feel brand new.

This blend contains Dandelion root, Passionflower, Skullcap, Catnip, Rosehip granules and Ginger.

This is my go-to blend when I come home feeling like I might've had just a little bit too much fun and my body needs a helping hand to make me feel like my usual self!

Dandelion root has been traditionally used to assist liver detoxification, passionflower and catnip to reduce anxiety, skullcap to ease headaches, rosehip granuels for a boost of vitamin c and ginger to calm an unsettled stomach.

 


The Burton Health Tea Club is here!

 After months of planning and preparation I have opened the doors to the Burton Health Tea Club!

This club gets me so excited! I wanted to share the joy of organic herbal tea with as many people as I could. I thought that accessing and enjoying good quality tea should be as easy as possible and I wanted to help people to connect with the herbs in their cup.

I thought a Tea Club would be the perfect way to do this. I looked around and I couldn't find anything like it. Sure, there might be tea subscription sites but I could't find a club where the ritual of tea was honoured, all of the tea was certified organic, hand-blended by a Naturopath and then delivered straight to your door with extra surprises to brighten your day. So I created it for you!

Every time I think about this Tea Club I always end up saying "I want to be a part of this club!". This is my dream come true. I love receiving mail, I love herbal tea and I love surprises. I have combined all of the things I love and turned it into an exclusive club for you to enjoy.

Head to the Tea Club page to find out the finer details of the club or hop right on over to the store if you know that this is the club that you need to be part of.

I look forward to welcoming you to the club.

My Tea Story

 

With the recent construction of my online tea store, I have spent a lot of time reflecting on my lifelong love affair with tea.

  

Being English, I feel like I was born with a teacup in my hand.

But I asked my mum, and she said I actually would have started drinking tea when I was five; we’d all sit up in bed on a Sunday morning and have a cup of tea before starting the day.
Mum also told me that when we were little, my sister and I took her and dad a cup of tea one day. We knew we weren’t allowed to use the kettle so we used the water from our hot water bottles! Needless to say they didn’t drink it. I don’t remember doing that, but I do remember the first cup of drinkable tea I ever made. It was for my Grandad and I did it to earn a badge at brownies.

An evolution of tea.

Tea has obviously made a big impact on my life! In the early days my cup of tea was weak with sugar. As I grew older and my tastes changed, I started adding less and less sugar until my favourite brew was a nice rosy colour with just a dash of milk.

Sadly (or in hindsight, gladly!) when I started Naturopathic college I discovered that traditional black tea was the cause of my long struggle with constipation. I had always dabbled in herbal teas but it was after this discovery that I stopped drinking black tea and switched mostly to Dandelion root. The change to my digestive function and overall health was remarkable!

When I was little, lolly shops were my favourite place to spend my pocket money. As an adult, lolly shops were replaced with tea shops (and stationery shops). When my friends come over for dinner, I stand at my tea cupboard and reel off a long list of tea options for them to choose from. The problem is, I don’t really like a lot of the tea blends that are on the market. Or, I get really annoyed when I try a delicious blend at the tea shop but when I read the ingredients, the blend contains sugar or flavouring.

Surely you don’t need to add flavouring to herbal tea?!

One day about a year ago, I had an epiphany!
As a Naturopath, I’m a trained herbalist, my knowledge of medicinal herbs is huge, I love the idea of herbal tea but I don’t like what is currently available… Why don’t I make my own organic herbal teas?
I think this is what is commonly known as a light bulb moment.

I have discovered that blending herbal teas is not as easy as it sounds. You can choose all of these beautiful herbs for their amazing actions but getting the right balance of flavour is not so easy. But, it can be done! Over the past few months I have tasted hundreds of cups of herbal tea and I will not release a blend until I am 100% happy with the flavour. So far I am absolutely addicted to every blend and I am determined to keep up this standard of tea perfection.

The future is looking beau-tea-ful.

My partner and I have become obsessed with thinking up new tea names. Any word that remotely sounds like “tea” will become a potential blend. Jonathan inspired the blend i’m working on at the moment when he looked at me the other day and said “after par-tea” BRILLIANCE!!!

I’m having so much fun with this new part of my business. The online store has been much busier than I ever anticipated and I am full of ideas for the future of Burton Health Tea! You can have a little poke around my store here and make sure you check back often as there will always be new blends being added to the family.
