One of the most frequently requested teas we get asked for is a menopause tea – so we teamed up with a local Tasmanian herbalist to create this supportive blend. All ingredients are organic and have been shown to have HRT benefits.
Schisandra Berries – a traditional Chinese remedy for centuries, Schisandra is a powerful hormone balancing herb. It can also help with energy levels, promote healthy skin and act as an anti-inflammatory. The berries add a delicious tart taste to the tea.
Red Clover – a common treatment for menopause, Red Clover contains isoflavons which are similar to estrogen and help the body balance any deficit. It has been shown to help with hot flushes caused by menopause.
Fennel – Fennel has also been shown to have estrogenic properties which may assist during menopause, the herb has many other uses too such as a strong digestive, mood balancer and sleep enhancer.
Anise Myrtle (Tasmanian) and Aniseed – Anise has shown in studies to be effective in reducing hot flushes, as well as being a delicious and gentle digestive addition to our menopause tea. Locally grown and wild-harvested Tasmanian Anise Myrtle complements the taste.
Sage – Studies have shown Sage to be effective in reducing hot flushes, as well as increasing the quality of sleep. Sage tea may also help with relaxation and anxiety.
Lemon Balm – The mood lifting, calming and sleep aiding benefits of Lemon Balm may help with overall relaxation and wellbeing, as well as giving the tea a subtle soft lemon addition.
