100% grown on KoruKai Herb Farm on Banks Peninsula, New Zealand. Organic and delicious.

Tulsi "Holy Basil" (Ocimum tenuiflorum): Tulsi is known as an adaptogen and contains hundreds of phytochemicals that work synergistically to promote the bodies natural defense mechanisms that ward off disease and stress.  The leaves are an Ayurvedic herb, also called holy basil, and is native to India where it is valued as an energizing and tasty beverage tea that is served hot or cold. Recent studies have also shown that it’s also a powerful antioxidant and may even be able to reduce blood glucose levels and cholesterol. 

Kanuka (Kunzea ericoides): A "tea-tree" similar to Manuka, traditionally used to make a herbal tea, grows well on KoruKai Herb Farm. We love it for its antimicrobial and antifungal properties. It supports the body to fight off infections and is a great addition to this tea.

Elderflowers (Sambucus nigra): Elderflower contains powerful antioxidants and phytochemicals that help prevent free radical damage. The herb is comprised of several essential vitamins, including Vitamin A, the B-1, B-2, and B-3 complex, andVitamin C. A combination of these vitamins and phytochemicals, like flavonoids and quercetin, give elderflower its anti-inflammatory, anticancer and antiviral properties.

Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis): Besides being totally delightful, lemon balm has antiviral and antimicrobial properties and is a good source of vitamin C. It is often used in healing protocols to treat cold sores and fever blisters and to fight infections.

Yarrow (Achillea millefolium): The Native Americans made great use of yarrow using it to induce sweating to reduce fever associated with the common cold.

Meadowsweet (Filipendula ulmaria): Meadowsweet has a rich medicinal history. It helps to reduce inflammation and is analgestic (reduces pain). It really helps the body when it is in pain, suffering from colds and the flu, having fever and feeling inflamed.

Lemon Verbena (Aloysia citrodora): Research has connected lemon verbena with lowered oxidative stress levels and better overall health of the body, evidence by a decisive increase in white blood cells, the first line of defense for our immune system. Lemon Verbena reduces inflammation, boosts the immune system, calms the stomach, reduces fevers and clear up congestion. A powerful herb and a delight to drink.

All year long favorite

I like having this herbal tea in my cupboard all year long. Anytime I'm run down I'm of course prone to catch any bug. This tea helps building up your immune system to be ready to fight any virus passing through! Pleasant taste so I use it anytime of the day

Highly recommend

This tea is fantastic. I have bought it several times and find it especially useful when suffering an upper respiratory viral infection. It shortens the duration of illness and seems to cut through inflammation, especially in your head.
