New Teas for August!


At Mama Tea HQ, for August,  we have decamped to the beautiful isle of Ibiza…

Mama Tea Day Spa

Normally a massive party place at this time of the year, we have been over on the quieter side of the island…all long beach walks and dreaming of sweet herbs…

I firmly believe in the holistic power of herbs and flowers and no-where does it feel more natural to create new tea blends than on this lovely island. Inspired by the beautiful tanned fit people I see everywhere here, I felt inspired to create some iced teas that are not only tasty but also good for your beauty, fitness and detox regimes.

BERRY BLUSH | Iced Tea

First up is Berry Blush which I created specifically as an iced tea.

Cranberries are a super fruit; a powerful antioxidant, they are an incredible ingredient for your skin. With such strong antioxidant qualities, they help the skin to get rid of free radicals with contribute to the aging process, leaving you with youthful looking skin.

The high percentage of Vitamin B3, Vitamin B5 and antioxidants in this fruit makes it useful in shielding our skin against any harm caused due to environmental factors.

Vitamin C, one of the amazing components contained in cranberry juice, is essential for the formation of hydroxylisine, hydroxyproline, and amino acids required by the body to produce collagen. Oxygen and other important nutrients are responsible for keeping the skin firm and soft. They also make the skin look radiant and young. The collagen present in the cranberry juice helps to serve this purpose.

Cranberries also should be consumed daily, to help avoid dental problems like cavities and plague. This is truly the art of beauty by prevention.

RUBY RHUBARB | Detox Tea

Next up, is the delightful RUBY RHUBARB Detox Tea

GODDESS POWER


goddess power

My name is Anna Louise and I am the founder of Mama Tea, the goddess tea brand. I am a boho modern healer, using my magical herbs to heal and provide wellness to others.

I originally created the Mama Tea brand  as I had suffered two difficult pregnancies. At the time, I was out of sync with myself, out of balance and struggling.
During my pregnancy, I discovered that there were lots of natural herbal teas to choose from but struggled in two aspects:
1. I didn’t know which herbal teas were safe to take during pregnancy and which ones to avoid. My midwife had told me all about raspberry leaf tea but none of the brands that I found had instructions or warnings about when exactly I should start drinking this herbal tea (it is week 38 by the way!). Therefore, I was at a bit of a loss in this respect.
2. I also could not find any herbal teas that tasted good!! This is important to all of us and I just couldn’t understand why the herbal teas that I drank all tasted so *healthy*, *bland*, *downright horrible*. Therefore, when I had the idea to come up with a range of herbal teas for pregnant and breastfeeding women, I wanted mine to TASTE GOOD!!

I discovered the magic power of herbs during my pregnancies and created a range of pregnancy herbal teas and a wonderful breastfeeding herbal tea.

 holistic healing herbs

Since then, I pursued my exploration of the concept of holistic wellness, meditating regularly and eating well. However, it was exploring the wide healing nature of natural herbs that changed my life. Walking regularly on the beach near my house in Scotland, I felt a primeval yearning to push further with my business than I ever had before.

greek herbs

Following my gut instinct, a week later, I booked a trip around Greece. It was in Greece that I re-ignited my love affair with herbs. In Greece, they still have a philosophy of wise women, infusing herbs and casting spells over the fire. I was fascinated and felt a deep call inside to look much closely at what I could achieve with herbs with my own wellness and then see if I could help others as a result.

I researched some of the old Greek herbal tea recipes such a “mountain tea’ and “greek healing tea” and feeling very inspired, started to create the my wellness tea collection, using herbs but also using some of my favourite teas like sencha green tea and the powerful antioxidant, rooibos. However, fate stepped in again with a surprise trip to the wonderful island of Ibiza, known as the “White Isle”.

ibiza goddess

Ibiza is one of the most magnetic islands in the world and you feel it’s energy as soon as you arrive. Healing starts immediately in the White Isle and it was so with me. The reason for this is due to the GODDESS energy in this wonderful place. Tanit is the protector Goddess that protects the magical island of Ibiza. She’s still very much here on the island in spirit as you will see if you look out, there are references to her goddess-ness all over the place.

goddess power

Inspired and feeling very blessed, I looked hard within and after years of self-doubt with bouts of depression, I was surprised to find that at the core of my being was a strong goddess of my own. My own being was goddess-like. Powerful, intuitive and creative, she was some force. Why had a hidden this powerful being for so long? Women used to be much more powerful than they are in current society and we have simply forgotten how powerful we are.

Each of my teas has been thoroughly researched and blessed. I hope they along with some of my research helps you find your own goddess within.

 

Goddess Love Forever.

SKINNY GODDESS DETOX TEA

sexy apples and wholesome rhubarb

The bountiful apples of this tea are infused by the beautiful Goddess of New Moon. She gathers her raspberries, blackberries and rose petals during the day and washes them in the bright moonlight in freshwater pools. Dancing around the rhubarb stalks close to the Ibiza beach, she is the fresh-faced lovely sometimes spotted on the beach at midnight, dancing around, the moon streaking her hair with silver light. Her skin glows in the moonlight as she rubs on her mixture of the purest rose petals and hibiscus flowers…

The Goddess popped in some HIBISCUS FLOWERS to this tea for it’s antioxident qualities also because it is particularly good at giving the skin that beautiful glow.
