Carmien Tea from Some Thyme

Herbal tea has been around for thousands of years and has been traced back to China and Southern Asia as its source of origin. It has been used in ancient ceremonies and traditional healing styles for many generations. To this day different types of tea are used as popular herbal medicines and as warm drinks, around the world.

Tea is made by infusing the roots, seeds, flowers, or leaves of a plant, into boiling water. This gives each tea a distinct flavor and certain beneficial properties, which vary according to the species of plant used.

Some Thyme sells a substantial range of herbal teas produced by Carmien. The flavors and properties of these rooibos-based teas are as follows:

  • Relax
    The plants used in the relaxation tea are chamomile, rosehip, and hibiscus. Chamomile is one of the more commonly used plants in tea. It aids in relieving insomnia, muscle ache, and menstrual cramps, as well as boosting immunity and assisting your body to fight off colds.
    Rosehip is high in antioxidants, making it an excellent immune booster. It has also been shown to reduce pain and contains anti-inflammatory properties.
    Hibiscus is also rich in antioxidants, and much like rosehip, aids in weight loss and regulates blood pressure. This combination of natural ingredients makes for a perfect concoction of warm, flavourful relaxation.
  • Restore 
    Restore is a delightful blend of lemongrass, ginger, ginseng, and moringa. Lemongrass and ginger both support the digestive system, by relieving nausea, stomach pain, and aiding in digestion.
    Moringa leaf is a superfood, that contains plenty of antioxidants and nutritive vitamins and minerals.
    Ginseng comes from the root of a plant found in Asia and has been said to provide many benefits including improved brain function and the lowering of blood pressure. Restore your body and keep it nourished with this fantastic combination of advantageous plants.
  • Rescue 
    This tea integrates the power of two plants indigenous to South Africa, rooibos and buchu. Buchu was used by native South Africans to treat infections in the urinary tract and kidneys as well as reduce inflammation. It has also been used to treat yeast infections and serve as a natural carminative substance. This tea is a great source of support for the gastrointestinal and urinary system.
  • Focus
    Focus integrates the many benefits of Masala Chai & Turmeric to produce a healthy, caffeine-free coffee alternative.
    Chai spices used are cinnamon that produces a delightful flavor and contains antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. Ginger has antibacterial properties and may help to keep your mouth clean and your teeth white, while also giving your immune system a boost and helping with a sore stomach and nausea.
    Cardomom has cancer-fighting compounds and antibacterial effects that keep your mouth clean. Cloves help with digestion, and therefore also aid in weight loss, and black pepper helps keep your blood sugar and cholesterol levels in check. 
  • Cleanse
    The mixture of green Rooibos, Lemongrass, Ginger, Mint, and Senna creates a phenomenal cleansing tea for your digestive tract. Senna has a mild laxative effect and when combined with ginger and mint, helps with bloating. Green rooibos contains vast amounts of antioxidants and claims have been made that it prevents cancer, heart disease, and strokes. After a long day, sit back and enjoy this cleansing tea.
  • Energize
    Energize tea combines guarana, Hoodia, Buchu, and Forrest Berries to create the perfect hot drink for any morning. Guarana is a popular ingredient in many energy drinks as its seeds contain nearly twice as much caffeine than coffee beans. It is also rich in antioxidants and can increase focus, help with a runny or blocked up tummy, and improves heart health and skin appearance. Hoodia is a succulent that has been used in South Africa for many generations to aid with weight-loss and appetite control. Forrest Berries, like many other berries, are also rich in antioxidants and provide many nutrients, such as fiber, vitamin C, and vitamin E.
  • Summer fresh
    Summer fresh is a delightful blend of fruity flavors with green rooibos and tastes of watermelon and strawberry, with a hint of fresh spearmint.
    The taste of summer all in one mug, enjoy our summer fresh tea in this cold start to spring.
  • Super Fruit
    This fruity blend of the superfoods acai berry, moringa, and hibiscus flowers will nourish your body and excite your taste buds. Moringa is a popular and powerful superfood that is rich in antioxidants, vitamins, nutritive elements like iron and magnesium, and contains a little bit of protein. Acai berries have little sugar but are packed with nutrients and antioxidants. They are thought to increase brain function, help reduce cancer growth, and balance cholesterol levels. Hibiscus flowers are very tasty and good for the liver.

  • Happy Tummy 
    Ground flaxseed and fennel have a gentle natural laxative effect, relieving constipation and stomach aches. This simple blend is ideal for children, as it has a tender flavor and gentle effects on the body.

  • Sleepy Time
    Rooibos and camomile are both known to relax the nervous system and produce a calming effect. This tea is flavored with strawberries, giving it a candy-like scent and delightful taste, masking the natural pungent taste of camomile. This tea is also suited for children that are hyperactive or struggle to fall asleep.

Rooibos Tea

Rooibos is an indigenous fern to South Africa, and translates to ‘Red Bush’. Rooibos has been used in South Africa for centuries and is still many South Africans’ preferred tea.

All of these teas are combined with rooibos, which amongst other ingredients provide immense health benefits. These include:

  • Contains no caffeine, which is known to cause problems relating to sleep, anxiety, and heart palpitations.
  • Contains fewer tannins than black and green tea. Tannins restrict the absorption of essential nutrients, such as iron.
  • High in antioxidants, which protect your body from diseases and reduce damage in your cells caused by oxidation.
  • Help prevent cancer and heart disease.
  • The only known natural source of antioxidant aspalathin. Tests on mice show that this substance may reduce insulin resistance and regulate blood sugar levels, which can benefit people with diabetes.
