Black tea / cinnamon / ginger / cardamon / clove / black pepper
Black tea (Camellia Sinensis) has many health benefits. It is rich in antioxidants, supports cardiovascular health, and has been found to provide protection against cardiovascular disease and several cancers. The antioxidants in black tea are called polyphenols. Polyphenols have been found to block DNA damage associated with toxic chemicals. Alkylamine antigens are a component of black tea. These improve the function of the immune system and boosts its response to foreign antigens. The tannins in black tea also have a therapeutic effect on the gastric lining and improve digestive activity. Black tea is the base used traditionally in chai tea.
Cinnamon (Cinnamomum zeylanicum) acts systemically as a smooth muscle relaxant. It has been found to balance blood sugar levels, and, as a carminative, is warming to the intestinal tract. The volatile oils in cinnamon are antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral.
Ginger (Zingiber officinale) is a stimulating tonic for the digestive system. It has been found to reduce cramping, gas and nausea. Ginger has been indicated for motion sickness and morning sickness in pregnancy for hundreds of years. Ginger increases peripheral circulation which increase blood flow, helps to detoxify the body from toxins, and stimulates oxygen transport to the body’s cells. In Western Herbal Medicine it is also used as an anti-inflammatory throughout the body, and to increase immunity to prevent invasion of bacteria and viruses.
Cardamon is native to the evergreen forests of India. As well as being used in Indian cuisine, it has made it’s way into Ayurvedic medicine for its outstanding health benefits. Cardamon has been found to improve digestive and cardiovascular health. It is used to treat nausea, bloating, acidity, gas and heartburn. Cardamon’s phytonutrients act in the body as an antioxidant, helping cells resist cellular ageing.
Clove helps to induce the production and release of bile from the liver and gallbladder, which aids in digestion and detoxification. Clove can also stimulate digestion and act as a pain reliever throughout the body.
Organic black pepper (Piper nigrum) has been found to work synergistically, improving the absorption of turmeric.

Mayde Tea Branded Infuser
“The tea strainer is great also it can be used for a mug or tea pot and is easy to clean” – Tia, Mayde Tea customer
At last we have created a tea infuser that that makes drinking loose-leaf tea as convenient as using a tea bag, but a whole lot better for your health and the environment.
There are a few reasons why we have chosen to not offer tea bags- and that is because commercial tea bags are created using bleaches, glues, staples and other nasty things that contain chemicals that we’d rather not give you to consume with your therapeutic tea blends!
Another reason is because we love the environment- and hate to imagine a compostable material (tea leaves) trapped inside a little plastic pouch.
Our tea strainer comes with a lid for a very important purpose- and that is because when you add boiling water to a herbal tea containing volatile oils, (volatile oils are the part of the plant with the medicinal benefit) they can evaporate with the steam.
