I used to be addicted to coffee. It was hard on my nervous system and I knew my body didn’t respond well to it. Giving up coffee was a gift I gave to my body and I have never looked back.
I have since enjoyed exploring the colourful and therapeutic world of herbal teas. A simple tea-break can give you an extra boost of anti-oxidants, calm and relax you, cleanse the body or give you a burst of energy. It all depends which tea you choose.
At Bestow, we gather to drink herbal tea together each morning and afternoon. We take turns making it, getting out our vintage china and serving tea on a silver tray. It is a beautiful ritual which gives us a joyful pause in our busy day. Nutritionally, it is a great opportunity to hydrate and get some added vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients.
It was important to me to know that we were all drinking quality organic tea so that our skin and body received maximum goodness and none of the pesticides and chemicals that can creep into supermarket herbal teas.
The best way to know what we were drinking was to develop our own range – so that’s exactly what we did. We were lucky enough to discover a Sri Lankan company with established organic tea plantations. The people there are even more passionate about tea than we are! The tea plantation is biodynamic and full of life with organic cattle providing compost, wild camphor in the hedgerows as a source of organic spray and the rich fragrance of tea leaves, basil and rosemary in the air.

I have never been a coffee drinker, but I do occasionally enjoy a cup of herbal tea. Especially in winter there’s nothing better than sitting down at the end of a busy day with a nice warming cup. It helps me relax and sets me up to have a good night’s sleep. I love that these teas have been carefully curated to ensure maximum health benefits, so I know I am doing something good for my skin and body. We have been serving both Luminositea and Eternitea to our clients for the last couple of weeks and have had amazing feedback. Our clients can’t wait to get their hands on a tin themselves!
What makes a tea-break more than a tea-break? Intention! A tea on the run only offers you one-half of the benefits. We invite you to embrace the Bestow ‘Time for Me’ Tea Ritual as a way of building mini-retreats into your busy day. This relaxing ritual helps you to introduce a healthy self-care rhythm which is so important in pursuing a life of wellness and wholeness.
