A wonderful alternative or complement to Vitamin C tablets or powders, THE MEDICINE WOMAN Vitamin C Plus tea blend contains herbs high in Vitamin C and naturally packaged with important holistic co-factors. This vitamin is an anti-oxidant and is in high demand all year round by the adrenals which I often refer to as the stress or vitality glands. Sitting atop the kidneys, it is important to look after our adrenals for they greater contribute to vitality and immunity.
Honey bush is not well known in New Zealand but is drunk widely in South Africa for its broad health benefits which are partly attributed to the high vitamin content. It’s flower smells of honey hence it’s common name. Elder flower and lime herb both have wide actions on the respiratory system to support the likes of the flu, coughs and colds. Licorice root, apart from being delicious, supports the adrenals and the respiratory system, plus it has a soothing action on the digestive tract. It’s easy to spot the rich red of rose hip in this herbal tea blend, known as one of the best sources of vitamin C in the plant kingdom. Last but not least there is nettle leaf, one of my all time favourite herbs due to it's well rounded personality.
This tea has an interesting and lovely flavour, with tangy citrus tones from the lime leaf and flower.
Caffeine free. Nothing added - just herbs.
