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.

Founders Anne and Ric went to China for the first time in 2005. Then inspired by the vast array of beautiful loose teas Anne saw there, they opened a tea bar in Bristol, intending it to be the perfect peaceful environment in which to experience the teas.

To make it a viable business, they also had to sell coffee but soon realised that the bustling coffee energy jarred with the peaceful state of being the teas induced. Then after a few years they took the difficult decision to close the tea bar and find different ways to introduce these essential moments of peace into people’s lives…and the rest as they say is history.

A true gift from nature, carefully chosen Chinese teas have been found to reduce stress, boost your natural healing ability and keep you calm and centred.

UMITEASETS STUNNING COLLECTION FOR TEA LOVERS…

Umiteasets have a large selection of tea pots and loose tea to choose from so when this one popped through my door I couldn’t wait to give the tea and the pot a try.

Umiteasets say “It is said that long ago a man arid a woman, madly in love with, each other, saw their happiness destroyed by a lord who took the woman as a concubine. Driven half triad by this separation, the woman ran away to rejoin her lover only to find that the lord had had him killed.

When she found the body of her lover in the mountains, she wept so much that her tears formed a torrent and her petrified body was transformed into a tea tree. Even today, that is the explanation given for the year-long humidity and cloudiness of the area. Huangshan Maofeng: One of the top ten famous tea in China, is a kind of green tea. The tea is originated from Huangshan, Anhui province, where climate is mild, the number of rainfall is abundant and the soil texture is great, so there is very suitable for the growth of tea tree. As for Huangshan Maofeng tea, the technology of picking tea-tea leaves and drying tea is very delicate, purely manual making. In fact, the tea appearance present small and has a little intertangaling, cords fatness, and tea heart like sparrow’s tongue.

After brewing, the tea leaves present limpid blue light, tea water taste glycol, and the aroma smelling like orchid, lasting long times. Due to the new drying tea leaves with pekoe, the tea buds are also very different, and the fresh leaves are all picked from Huangshan Mountain Peak, hence its named Huangshan Maofeng tea. The tea is the curiosa in green tea, which through four working procedure: editing, rolling drying and baking. As we all know that the efficacy of Huangshan Maofeng are very rich, not only for one’s body, also for health care.

The tea is delicious and I love my little pot. With an array of teas, stunning tea pots and lots more on the Umi Tea Sets website it’s well worth having a look.
