Made with Care
has long been recognised for its healing qualities. In fact, the plant features in traditional Maori remedies in which poultices are made from the branches. The natural anti-bacterial properties of the honey are also found in the leaves, which can help relieve cold symptoms. The fine leaves of the manuka bush have been carefully hand-picked and sun-dried to produce an exquisitely flavoured tea leaf. Other manuka teas have been mixed with fruits and fillers; ours is the only one to be made from 100% manuka leaf.
For best results, steep the leaves in 90ºC water for a few minutes. The natural aromas of the leaves will be released to produce a pleasingly gentle taste reminiscent of pine. Like camomile, it has a calming effect and has also been known to settle upset stomachs and provide a good night’s sleep.
Our pure manuka loose-leaf tea comes in a 25g packet.
