A wonderful alternative or complement to Vitamin C tablets, THE MEDICINE WOMAN Vitamin C Plus tea blend contains herbs high in Vitamin C and naturally packaged with important holistic co-factors. This vitamin as an anti-oxidant 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 their contribution to our vitality and immunity. As stress levels rise, our ability to be immune to dis-ease falls.
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 both have wide actions on the respiratory system including the flu, coughs and colds. Licorice root, apart from being delicious to most palates, supports the adrenals and has a number of therapeutic potentials on the respiratory system plus a soothing healing action on the gastro-intestinal tract. It’s easy to spot the rich red of rose hip in this herbal tea, 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 a lovely sweet flavour with tangy citrus tones from the lime leaf and flower.
