At market stalls I’ve regularly been asked about sage. Ever since, I’ve been on a mission to blend a natural menopause remedy that also tastes great. To complement the sage and alfalfa, I’ve added rose for its sweet fragrance, and also its cooling, astringent properties (which is why it’s often used in facial products). Liquorice is a soothing natural sweetener for flavour, and also a traditional remedy to help with stress and anxiety – ideal for a time of hormonal changes. So our Cooling Sage Tea is an all-round tonic combining the best medical herbs for menopause with a delicious flavour.
Sage (70%), rose, alfalfa, motherwort, liquorice.
Alfalfa comes from the Arabic ‘al-fac-facah’, which means ‘father of all foods’.
Herbalists call liquorice an ‘adaptogen’, which means it’s a herb that helps us to physically and mentally adapt and survive in stressful situations.
how to enjoy our tea
Cooling Sage Tea can be enjoyed hot or cold, by anyone, at any time of day.
Tip: If you're using sage tea to treat hot flushes or other menopause symptoms, try 2-3 cups a day for 2-3 weeks. People usually report a difference in around 10 days. Lifestyle choices may affect results.
Note: Sage has been traditionally used for coughs, colds and flus, and liquorice to ease sore throats.
Sage, the menopause and other uses
Women have long used sage as a traditional remedy for the symptoms of menopause, including hot flushes/sweating. Many menopause symptoms are related to a drop in oestrogen, which affects the body’s neurotransmitters. Clinical studies evidence the widely reported benefits of sage – see the link below for an overview.
Research is also underway into the effects of sage on inhibiting cancer growth. The ursolic acid in sage has been found to inhibit angiogenesis – the ability of tumours to produce new blood vessels.
Sage has also been used in traditional medicine as an anti-bacterial, and considered helpful in treating coughs, colds and flus. It was also used by the ancient Greeks and Romans to preserve meat, and stop other foods from going off. These anti-bacterial properties are being researched for possible other uses, including mouthwash and deodorant.
One incredibly useful herb!

- Brilliant stuff!
Make sure you have at least 2 cups a day for 2 weeks before judging whether or not this works for you. I was doubtful that it would work but have been amazed at the improvement in my menopausal hot flushes when using the tea - and the speed of their return when I stopped using it. BUT - It did need 2 weeks of persisting with it before it took effect so stick with it!
- Tastes lovely and really works
Bonjour, this tea is amazing. I was using sage tablets for ages and they did nothing. This tea helped in about 6 days! i love it! And I also like to drink it cold
Drinking our tea is not a substitute for seeing a doctor.
