What can tea do for you?


What can tea do for you?

One cold winter’s evening I found myself stumbling upon a gem of an Arabic restaurant in Melville, Johannesburg. A sucker for trying new things, I decided to order my first cup of “Maramia Tea” and so began a love affair with a tea I had absolutely no idea was so beneficial to my health.Tea

For thousands of years, Eastern culture has regarded tea as the key to wisdom, happiness and health. Recently, researchers in the West have been discovering the many health benefits of different types of teas, proving some substance to the old adage that there is nothing a good cup of tea cannot solve! And even better if the tea is natural and organic like the Lumitea Cleanse Product!

  • Sage Tea: Otherwise known as “Maramia Tea” is fantastic for calming anxiety and improving one’s mood. Other benefits include treating colds, fevers, sore throat, headaches as well as treating an upset stomach.
  • Jasmine Tea: Jasmine tea aids in strengthening the immune system. There are high levels of antioxidants in jasmine tea that can help protect the body against free radicals.
  • Rooibos Tea: A good old South African favourite! Rooibos tea is considered a good source of minerals like Calcium, Iron, Potassium, Copper, Zinc, and Magnesium. It is also beneficial in treating insomnia as it promotes relaxation. Another bonus is that it is free from caffeine!Tea
  • Earl Grey Tea: This is great for teeth since it contains very high levels of catechin, an antioxidant that fights oral infections. Fluoride is also a natural component of Earl Grey tea. Fluoride helps protect those pearly whites against cavities.
  • Ginger Tea: Ginger tea has anti-inflammatory properties leaving it to be an ideal home remedy for muscular and joint pain. These anti inflammatory benefits also make ginger tea a great option to beat that bloat that can occur during that time of the month or if you have eaten too much, of course if you’re really wanting to lose weight there are so better solutions like the system, but tea is also beneficial. With all these benefits, there is plenty reason to put the kettle on. And so, in the words of The Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland: “It’s always tea time!”
