To Sleep Better

Wouldn’t we all love to have a good night’s sleep? For some falling asleep at night is effortless and as soon as your head hits the pillow you’re already in dreamland. However, for others, it’s not as easy to fall asleep effortlessly, and for these instances, you must try Sleep from Zesta’s wellness range. Infused with chamomile (tea), a cup of this is just what you need to have before you go to sleep. Although often referred to as a tea, chamomile is actually a herbal infusion that is naturally caffeine-free and made from daisy-like flowers. Apart from helping you sleep better, chamomile can also help alleviate pain from menstrual cramps, reduce stress and anxiety, treat cold symptoms, as well as bring about several other health benefits

To Lose Weight

Nowadays green tea has become the go-to drink if you’re trying to lose weight due to its ability to boost metabolism. However, did you know that green tea is rich in caffeine and each has approximately 35mg of caffeine per cup? Its high level of caffeine makes green tea an unsuitable drink for pregnant women and those trying to reduce their caffeine intake.  Instead, try our Fat Burn herbal (tea) infused with fenugreek, garcinia black seed, turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, cumin seed, senna leaf, and black pepper. All these spices and herbs promote gut health and have anti-inflammatory properties, and research shows that these herbs can also help with weight management. However, more research needs to be done and in order to manage your weight, you must also have a healthy diet and partake in regular exercise.

To Detox

In 2020 with all the lockdowns and stay at home restrictions, many of us may have given into our temptation, whether it be an extra glass of wine or eating more junk food. Now that we are well into the new year, it’s time to leave all those bad habits behind and start fresh. For this, you must try out Detox (tea) which is a herbal infusion containing several herbs such as ashwagandha, ginger, turmeric, nelli, and neem. This flavourful combination of spices makes for the perfect brew that will rejuvenate and cleanse the body of toxins with every sip. These herbs and spices have been used for several centuries in Ayurvedic practices and each comes with the benefits of its own unique healing properties.

To Energise

Most people start their mornings with a cup of coffee or black tea, however, if you’re trying to reduce your caffeine intake you are going to need to find a replacement. Our Refresh herbal (tea) is an excellent alternative. Swap your morning cup of traditional Ceylon tea to one of refreshing peppermint (tea) that is the perfect drink to have after a meal. Not only is peppermint (tea) a great pick-me-up, but it also improves digestive tract health, it can help relieve stomach pain, nausea, and indigestion! Peppermint also has antioxidants, antibacterial and antiviral properties which will help improve your overall health. This is best consumed as a hot tea as it will gently nourish and refresh you.

To Boost Immunity

Black tea is well known for having a wealth of health benefits due to its high level of polyphenols, a type of antioxidant, black tea can promote overall health by combatting free radicals. While this is true, there are also several infusion teas that can improve overall health like our Immune Boost herbal infusion. Infused with the goodness of moringa leaves, turmeric, coriander, iramusu, and hathawariya, this all-natural immunity boosting drink is flavourful and extremely healthy. Defend your body against illness and disease with a cup of this delectable herbal (tea).
