GLOWING MAMA rooibos herbal tea

Earthy South Africa in a teacup

Rooibos is a very powerful antioxidant that is only found at the foothills of the Cederburg mountains in South Africa. Glowing Mama loves South Africa and loves rooibos, not just because of it's creamy warm taste but because it is caffeine-free, extremely good for flushing out toxins and very tasty! Rooibos Tea (also known as Redbush Tea) is a completely natural herbal tea; the rooibos herb is found in a small area of the Western Cape and is a rich, earthy herb. Rooibos also has very low levels of tannins compared to traditional tea, as well as powerful flavonoids.

Mama wanted to add a twist to traditional rooibos, so she worked with a Master Tea Blender to stir up dandelion leaf, echinacea leaf and elderflowers with rooibos, all in a single teacup! The result? A creamy earthy powerful rooibos blend that conjures up the sun and releases toxins gently. If you are new to herbal tea, this blend is probably your first stop!

Give it a go, close your eyes, imagine the warmth of the sun on your skin and that just about sums up Glowing Mama!

breastfeeding tea

Why is New Mama such a great breastfeeding tea? Well, it was developed by our mama, Anna-Louise Simpson who suffered from terrible mastitis when she was breastfeeding and found it hard to get the baby to latch on.

As a result she wanted to create a completely natural breastfeeding tea with no hidden nasties! In particular she wanted to include herbs like lemon balm for post-natal depression and red clover for mastitis.

We of course included herbs to help with breastfeeding like fennel seeds, fenugreek seeds and nettle leaf. 

The result is a stunning tea that tastes amazing but is also really effective! Give it a try!
