Tea with Mary Kate is a huge Neal’s Yard fan. I make no apology for my brazon support for this quintessentially British Institution. And what is better still, this ethical independent family-owned British company has recently celebrated over 30 years since it sought to bring the expertise of the apothecary and a holistic approach to health and beauty to local people and their communities. Long may it continue to do so. But what has this organic beauty company got to do with tea I hear you ask, in all reasonableness frankly – well, my dears, they have created organic blends of tea with extraordinary healthful powers…….
Neal’s Yard Detox Tea
With carefully selected organic dandelion, burdock, plantain, nettle and cleavers, this organic blend will help to cleanse and purify, just what we need I hear you cry!
While you could be wondering if we are to have a summer in the splendid British Isles, ever optimistic, Tea with Mary Kate was quite taken with this lovely organic summer Tea blend to help cool and soothe, with carefully selected organic eyebright, nettle, elderflower and peppermint. My dears, quite honestly, I am hoping the weather will mean I will need it!
The Extraordinary power though is that Neal’s Yard has gone beyond the health benefits of drinking tea to the Beauty of Tea
Indulge me, I know you will be converts already to the health benefits of tea. Indeed, while no other reason is required for the wonderful experience of drinking tea than it is a comforting, calming pleasure, alongside that unavoidable fact that there is a fantastic diversity of flavours to tantalise the taste buds – I think there is another addition to the health benefits of drinking tea. As well as inner health, what about the outer benefits?
Beautiful skin tea is a rather lovely blend from Neal’s Yard Remedies. Drink your way to beautiful skin indeed!
Neal’s Yard are pioneers in natural therapies. When most were focused on the chemical & synthetic, their vision was and still is to bring the apothecary back to life – I love the fact that Neal’s Yard wanted to connect with the knowledge of the past – & it is really resonating now more than ever.
