The inspiration for these delicious, medicinal herbal concoctions began many moons ago. Nurtured by the remarkable beings I've met along roads travelled and inspired by landscapes, stories, hopes and dreams. Their origins were inspired by you. Because being human takes it toll and sometimes we need a little support. I began studying herbal medicine after 10 years working in the holistic health industry.
Before this I put my knowledge into practise as I travelled. I spent increasing amounts of time in nature, from its most radical scenery to its most tranquil. Living away from cities encouraged me to find what I needed in the landscape rather than the shops.
I love herbalism for the interaction with nature that it offers, and how accessible it is no matter where we are. I walked the Caminho de Portuguese last year finding an abundance of herbs to support my journey; aloe to sooth and moisturise my dry, burnt skin, wild garlic to flavour my lunches and peppermint to cool my body down as I carried myself 25km in the midday sun. How liberating to know how to heal and pamper yourself with nature!
I began developing these tea blends whilst studying herbal medicine at Cardiff University. After learning about the traditional methods of administration I was excited to find most medicinal properties in herbs can be activated simply through heat and water. What better way to feed your body with vitamins and minerals or aid a wound than with a steaming cuppa!
I’m here to share my scrupulously developed tea blends with you for health and heart. To be slurped or sipped when we're high and when we're low. Especially in times of much needed comfort when as we delve within our depths to listen to our souls.
My blends began with a glimmer of youthful spirit and forged ahead with the hands of wisdom… finally re-establishing roots in Welsh soil, the seedlings are nurtured into bloom. With these brews I share my lessons of mending, growing, softness and strength. These potions are for healing, for seeing what needs attention and allowing surrender, at any moment it calls.
