Kickstart your Spring Detox with Tummy Tonic
Posted by teatime on April 18, 2017
Hopefully, you enjoyed the Easter weekend as much as we did, and are not feeling too guilty about the inevitable over-eating. There should be no regrets in celebrations; but at some point, that unmistakable bloaty feeling returns to reminds us of our recent indulgences! :)
To get over the Easter binge in no time, always opt for natural aids to digestion; there are many beautiful herbs that will sooth your tummy and teatime has created something a little different for you:
Say hello to our refreshing Tummy Tonic blend - with its invigorating and well-rounded taste, it is not your usual digestive; it is a caffeine-free treat you can enjoy at any time of the day!
We love the freshness and aroma of mint, so we put a good amount of whole leaves into it. Mint is known to be a great palate cleanser, and to encourage digestion. It also eases stomachs in cases of indigestion or inflammation. If you feel stomach discomfort, drinking mint tea can alleviate the condition.
For natural sweetness to complement the crisp, clean flavour, we enhanced the blend with a healthy dose of fennel seeds; notable for for their distinctive aromatic flavour, these seeds also have excellent relieving properties when it comes to water retention.
Last but not least, the mighty senna leaf completes our light but powerful infusion. This ingredient is popular in herbalism and folk medicine, treating constipation and skin infections. Senna is a potent plant, a little bit goes a long way - we only put a small sprinkle in our blend, so you can enjoy it even when your tummy feels a bit sensitive.
Born as a natural detoxer, our Tummy Tonic has gone a long way and is now our fans' favourite choice for afternoon teas, after a big lunch or a heavy dinner. You can choose to have it in our lovely silky sachets or classic loose leaf form - check this out for more information.
All you need is 1 to 2 teaspoons of Tummy Tonic per serving. To get the most out of this blend, brew at 100°C and allow to steep for 2-5 minutes, depending on your desired strength.
