And breathe! Our whole leaf sage is packed with volatile oils to cool and comfort you, blended with herbs to support and nurture. Sage has relieved hot flushes and used cool since biblical times. I’ve combined sage with alfalfa (high in folic acid and other useful nutrients), as evidence suggests the two work clinically better together. Motherwort (Leonorus cadicia) is slightly oestrogenic, and has traditionally has been used to relieve anxiety and palpitations relating to menopause (hence ‘cardicia’, meaning heart).


All in all, a tasty tea with benefits!

Our tea blend

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.


Alfafa icon

Alfalfa comes from the Arabic ‘al-fac-facah’, which means ‘father of all foods’.

Fermented Blackberry Leaf



Liquorice icon

Herbalists call liquorice an ‘adaptogen’, which means it’s a herb that helps us to physically and mentally adapt and survive in stressful situations.

Sage icon

The Latin name for sage, Salvia, comes from the verb meaning ‘to save’.
Sage was so esteemed in Ancient Rome that to pluck it required a ceremony, including clean clothes and special tools.

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!

Wasnt sure at first
A friend told me about this and then gave me the end of her packet. I wasnt sure if i could drink it at first. But now i like it cold and see why it was recommended

I feel so much better!
After about 10 days of drinking this I really noticed how much better I felt. I drink the Deep Sleep Too- and that really helps too

I was doubtful but willing to give anything a go.
I was doubtful but willing to give anything a go. I was persistent for about 2 weeks...It worked!

Does what it says on the tin.
I met Cindy at various food and health shows. She recommended the Cooling Sage to help me through those hot flushes. I prefer the tea when it has cooled. This really worked. I really must try teas from the rest of range.

Love this tea!
I love this tea and have a cup first thing in the morning (well anytime actually!). Beautifully and carefully blended. I use the tea leaves as mulch around my own herbs and plants.
Review by Granny Weatherwax / (Posted on 05/07/2018)
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!
Review by Karen / (Posted on 22/11/2017)
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
