SOME OF THE BEST TEAS TO DRINK IF YOU ARE SUFFERING FROM IBS…

  1. Fennel Tea – this tea is helpful in relieving cramps and it can also act as a mild laxative. Holland and Barrett sell the Heath and Heather Fennel Tea which is fresh and herbal, the ideal way to help maintain your well-being at any time of the day. A wonderful addition to your herbal, caffeine-free tea collection.

Heath & Heather Fennel 50 Tea Bags

2. Camomile Tea my favorite last drink of the day as it has a soothing calming effect. It can also help reduce stomach cramps. It’s been used for centuries as an anti-inflammatory and some even claim that it can help beat the annual hay fever sneezes. With its sun-drenched warmth and a fragrant floral finish, it’s time to enjoy Whittard’s Golden Camomile herbal tea, crafted purely from golden camomile flowers and finely blended for our individually wrapped teabags. With its sun-drenched warmth, a cup of pure relaxation.

3. Peppermint Tea another one I always have in my cupboard. This has a soothing effect on your stomach and may even help if you suffer from heartburn, gas, and spasms. My favorite is Twinnings Pure Peppermint Single Tea Bags, created to help you feel refreshed and ready for the day with each sip. A classic, vibrant blend perfect for any time of day.

4. Spearmint Tea – not one you find around as much as Peppermint Tea but yet again this one can have a soothing effect on your stomach and has a gentler taste to it. Amazon sells Palanquin’s Spearmint Herbal Tea,

5. Anise Tea – this can help to relieve constipation, gas and bloating. Holland & Barrett have a Pukka Detox Tera which is a clean fusion of aniseed, fennel and cardamom. 

6. Rooibos Tea – this tea is caffeine free, and has a rich flavor and is great for relieving stomach spasms. Jing Tea makes a Herbal Rooibos Tea which is soft, honeyed and gently tangy with a hint of bitter orange. 

7. Ginger Tea – ginger in any shape or form has health benefits and the tea helps with nausea and stomach spasms. The Natural Health Market sells Organic Ginger Tea Bags which is made with only chopped certified organic ginger root. The tea has an intense taste and impressive ‘zing’ that makes it moreish and a comfortable level of spice provides a nutrient-rich warming sensation.

5 TEAS WITH A BIT OF CBD TO RELAX AND ENJOY…

Why not try a tea infused with a bit of CBD in it. We could all do with a pick up on a wet and dark day.

According to The Brothers Apothecary CBD tea is a great and effective way to boost your mood and manage your stress even if you have no health problems. And, even though there are many ways to take CBD, ingesting it in tea is a natural and healthy way to enjoy the benefits of it. They say it is full of antioxidants and vitamins to support a healthy body while giving you the right nutrients.

CBD Tea UK explain a bit more about CBD tea into two types: hemp tea and water-soluble tea. Some companies also offer sparkling CBD tea, but that’s more of a sweetened beverage than a proper tea. Hemp tea is the closest equivalent to the regular (black and green) and herbal tea millions of people drink every day. It’s made by steeping hemp leaves or other parts of the plant in hot water. Hemp tea has an earthy, bitter flavour that’s somewhat reminiscent of an unflavored full-spectrum CBD oil.

Water-soluble or more accurately “water-dispersible” CBD tea contains CBD powder that’s been processed with nanotechnology to make it easier to mix in water. It can contain either pure CBD (isolate) or whole-plant hemp extract (full-spectrum or broad-spectrum CBD). Most water-soluble CBD teas also contain regular or herbal tea to give the tea added flavour and benefits.

Hempura CBD Tea (Natural Raspberry) £9.99 from CBD UK

Buddha Teas UK have an Organic CBD Turmeric & Ginger Infusion which sounds delicious. Used traditionally for thousands of years, earthy turmeric and spicy ginger combine perfectly. Add 5 mg of water-soluble CBD, and the results are a stunning cup of ancient, yet modern delight. Finally, our CBD Turmeric & Ginger Infusion has been tested to reveal zero percent THC Water-Soluble CBD, 18 Bleach Free Tea Bags / Box at £16.99 Frequently paired for consumption, the combination of turmeric and ginger is an obvious winner when seeking a warming, stimulating cuppa.

The pungent, mildly bitter taste of turmeric, when combined with slightly pungent, delightfully sweet ginger, makes an obviously perfect combo.

FRUIT OF THE MONTH-DAMSONS…

Damsons make delicious jam, gin and mixed with apple for a tasty crumble. Or, how about this role-poly doughnut pudding with custard from Delicious Magazine.

CCE5AFC1-785E-4D9B-BDD4-A904FEC8B32E

Damsons offer great health benefits as they have a good sauce of Vitamin A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, E, K and high in Vitamin C which can all help support a healthy immune system.

They are a blue-black fruit that look like small plums. The wild varieties are extremely tart so not something you would pick and wasps love them.
