Like all our teas, Daily Detox Tea is blended for tastiness as well as effect. Nettle, dandelion and milk thistle are astringent, so I’ve balanced this with a fabulous minty freshness from two kinds of mint – peppermint for digestion, and spearmint, which has a lighter, sweeter flavour that has been found to be beneficial for stress and fatigue.
Mint, nettle, dandelion, spearmint, pink cornflower, milk thistle (5%).
A dandelion makes an excellent barometer. In fine weather, the clock opens fully, When rain approaches, it shuts like an umbrella.
Mint gets its name from Greek mythology. Minthe the water nymph was caught seducing Hades, the ruler of the underworld, and was turned into a mint plant by his jealous wife, Persephone.
Cornflower was traditionally used to soothe puffy eyes.
Spearmint is the true mint of mojitos.
Before fridges were invented, spearmint was sometimes added to milk, to lengthen the shelf-life and keep it from curdling.
how to enjoy our tea
Infuse in boiling water for 2-5 minutes. Enjoy hot or cold.

Milk thistle’s traditional reputation as a liver tonic is supported by research showing that its constituents protect the liver from toxins such as alcohol, and helps to explain its use as an emergency antidote to death cap mushrooms!
