Frequently Asked Questions

  • Ashwagandha
    Ashwagandha is an evergreen shrub that grows in Asia and Africa. It has been used for over 3,000 years to relieve stress, increase energy levels and improve concentration. Classified as an adaptogen, ashwagandha is one of the most important herbs in Ayurvedic medicine. Ashwagandha has been used to treat headache, bedwetting, depression, nervous stomach and constipation. It can prevent and treat sexual problems, boost and maintain mental and physical stamina and is an aphrodisiac. Ashwagandha is a nightshade and in the same family as peppers, tomatoes, potatoes, ground cherry and tomatillo. The roots of the ashwagandha plant are used in tea.
  • Blackberry Leaf
    All blackberry varieties are part of the larger Rubus family, a large and diverse genus of flowering plants in the rose family, Rosaceae. ​ In the Pacific Northwest, when people think blackberry, they most often think of the massive thorny bushes of tall canes that take over any empty lot and claim it as theirs by multiplying fast. A cane can grow more than 20 feet in one year! However, this blackberry, the Himalayan blackberry, is actually an invasive species. The native blackberry, Rubus ursinus, also known as the trailing blackberry, wild mountain blackberry, Pacific blackberry or the Northwest dewberry doesn’t nightmarishly tangle and sprawl, just gently trails along the ground. ​ Other members of the Rubus family include thimbleberry, salmonberry, tayberry, boysenberry, dewberry and all raspberries. All berries within this family are edible and in fact, there are no known look-a-likes that are toxic or poisonous. Although I wouldn't recommend eating any unidentified berries. ​ Blackberry leaf is beneficial for a sore throat, sore gums and mouth ulcers. It's high in Vitamin C, as well as antimicrobial, antidysentery (dysentery is an intestinal inflammation), antidiabetic (regulates blood sugar), antidiarrheal, regulates menses and is high in antioxidants.
  • Calendula
    Calendula is a flowering plant also known as pot marigold. The tea made from calendula is a traditional remedy used in folk medicine because of its ascribed therapeutic properties. It possesses several potent antioxidants, including triterpenes, flavonoids, polyphenols, and carotenoids. Additionally, it boasts anti-inflammatory compounds that have been used to fight internal and external inflammation. Internally it’s been used to help treat oral conditions such as gingivitis, as a gargle for sore throats and a mouth rinse to help relieve blisters, inflamed gums, or thrush. Drinking calendula tea is reported to help heal gastric ulcers and congested lymph nodes. It can also help regulate the menstrual cycle, but because of its ability to induce menstruation, it is advised not to take calendula tea internally while pregnant. It’s also been used topically to treat diaper rash, athlete’s foot, itchy eyes due to allergies, pink eye, itchy scalp, acne, and as a compress to scraped, itchy, scratched, or otherwise inflamed skin conditions.
  • Ceylon Black Tea
    Ceylon (say-lawn) tea is a tea produced on the island nation of Sri Lanka, formerly known as Ceylon. Sri Lanka is small, but it has an enormous range in elevation, climate, soil type, plant varietals, and weather, so the flavours and character of the teas produced there vary greatly. A classic Ceylon flavour is generally thought to be bold, full, and brisk. It has medium-to-full tannins and some notes of citrus, chocolate, or spice. Ceylon teas contain higher levels of potassium when compared with tea grown in other regions, which relaxes the tension in your blood vessels and arteries. Like most black teas, Ceylon tea boosts your metabolism, which may help increase energy and help your body burn fat. It’s also rich in antioxidants, helps to reduce blood pressure and reduces blood glucose levels. By helping to regulate the glucose and insulin levels in the body, Ceylon tea may help prevent the spikes and drops that can be dangerous for people with diabetes.
  • Chamomile
    Chamomile tea is a popular beverage across the world and has been consumed for centuries as a natural remedy for several health conditions including both internal health and skin benefits that are hard to find in many other teas. It contains apigenin, an antioxidant that binds to certain receptors in your brain that may promote sleepiness and reduce insomnia, or the chronic inability to sleep. Drinking chamomile tea is soothing to the stomach. Traditionally, it has been used to treat several digestive ailments, including nausea and gas. Apigenin has also been shown to fight cancer cells, especially those of the breast, digestive tract, skin, prostate and uterus. Its anti-inflammatory properties may prevent damage to the cells of your pancreas, which occurs when your blood sugar levels are chronically elevated. Chamomile tea is abundant in flavones, a class of antioxidants. Flavones have been studied for their potential to lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels, which are important markers of your heart disease risk. Chamomile tea contains Chamazulene, an aromatic chemical compound that possesses anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antispasmodic properties. It’s often promoted as a strategy for preventing and treating the common cold and has also been said to be soothing for sore throats. Furthermore, it relaxes the uterus and decreases the production of prostaglandins (hormone-like substances that cause inflammation and pain).
  • Cinnamon
    Native to Sri Lanka (formerly Ceylon), cinnamon is a spice obtained from the inner bark of several tree species from the genus Cinnamomum. Some cinnamon trees can grow up to 60 feet tall! ​ Cinnamon is ​filled with antioxidants and offers several health benefits, including reduced inflammation and blood sugar levels, improved heart health and perhaps even weight loss. Cinnamon tea may also fight off infections, as well as reduce PMS and menstrual cramps. It's also antibacterial, antiviral, anti-fungal, and beneficial in fighting and preventing cancer.
  • Damiana
    Damiana, is a shrub native to southern Texas in the United States, Central America, Mexico, South America, and the Caribbean. It belongs to the family Passifloraceae along with the passion fruit. It's a relatively small, woody shrub that produces small, aromatic flowers. Damiana is a key herbal aphrodisiac with a mild anti-depressant and anti-anxiety action. Therefore it is good to use when depression has affected libido.
  • Dandelion Leaf
    You may be most familiar with dandelion as a stubborn weed that never seems to leave your lawn or garden. However, in traditional herbal medicine practices, dandelion are revered for their wide array of medicinal properties. For centuries, they’ve been used to treat a myriad of physical ailments, including cancer, acne, liver disease and digestive disorders. From root to flower, dandelion are highly nutritious plants, loaded with vitamins, minerals and fibre. ​ Dandelion greens can be eaten cooked or raw and serve as an excellent source of vitamins A, C and K. They also contain vitamin E, folate and small amounts of other B vitamins. What’s more, dandelion greens provide a substantial amount of several minerals, including iron, calcium, magnesium and potassium. The root of the dandelion is rich in the carbohydrate inulin, which is a type of soluble fibre found in plants that supports the growth and maintenance of a healthy bacterial flora in your intestinal tract. Dandelion root is often dried and consumed as a tea but can also be eaten in its whole form. ​ If you’re feeling bloated, dandelion tea reduces water weight and could provide relief because it acts as a diuretic and increases urine output. The root has long been held as a “liver tonic” in folk medicine. Preliminary studies suggest this is due, in part, to its ability to increase the flow of bile.
  • Echinacea
    Echinacea is a genus, or group, of herbaceous flowering plants in the daisy family. The genus Echinacea has ten species, which are commonly called coneflowers. However, only three are used in herbal supplements — Echinacea purpurea (a.k.a purple coneflower), Echinacea angustifolia and Echinacea pallida. ​ Native Americans have used echinacea for centuries to treat various ailments and is best known for its beneficial effects on the immune system. ​ Numerous studies have found that this plant may help your immune system combat infections and viruses, which could help you recover faster from illness. However, it’s also used to treat pain, inflammation, migraines and other health issues. ​ Echinacea plants contain an impressive variety of active compounds, such as caffeic acid, alkamides, phenolic acids, rosmarinic acid, polyacetylenes and many more. ​ Today, people around the world use products that contain Echinacea to support the treatment of a range of illnesses, including coughs and colds, bronchitis, upper respiratory infections, gingivitis, influenza, canker sores, yeast infections, ear infections, vaginitis and some inflammatory conditions.
  • Ginger
    Ginger is a flowering plant that originated in Southeast Asia. It belongs to the Zingiberaceae family, and it’s closely related to turmeric and cardamom. The rhizome (underground part of the stem) is the part commonly used as a spice. It’s often called ginger root or, simply, ginger. ​ Ginger has a very long history of use in various forms of traditional and alternative medicine. As a warming, aromatic digestive it calms the system, easing pain, nausea, vomiting, griping, wind and bloating. It can be used in cases of diarrhea, IBS, upset stomachs, vomiting, motion sickness and morning sickness. ​ The unique fragrance and flavour of ginger come from its natural oils, the most important of which is gingerol. Gingerol is the main bioactive compound in ginger. It’s responsible for much of ginger’s medicinal properties. Gingerol has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. ​ As well as promoting good digestive and heart health, ginger is also beneficial for people with arthritis, migraines, hypertension and menstrual pain. It stimulates the circulatory system, helping those with poor circulation and issues such as chilblains and Raynaud's syndrome or those who can't move past the "chilled" phase of a fever.
  • Green Tea
    Green tea is high in antioxidant polyphenols. The polyphenols found in green tea include catechins, theaflavins, tannins, and flavonoids. The catechins and alkaloids in the tea can help manage blood sugar levels. So, by managing the blood sugar, green tea can regulate insulin levels. By doing so, it can help those with diabetes manage the condition. In addition, it can also help those who have a high risk of diabetes from developing it. ​ Catechins are also beneficial for reducing inflammation throughout the body and can reduce symptoms of constipation, bloating and even Crohn’s disease. ​ Green tea can also protect you against the average cold, most likely due to the high antioxidant levels and it can also reduce your risk of heart disease by lowering the level of triglycerides and cholesterol.
  • Hibiscus
    Historically, hibiscus tea has been used in African countries to decrease body temperature, treat heart disease, and sooth a sore throat. In Iran, hibiscus tea is used to treat high blood pressure. One of the most impressive and well-known benefits of hibiscus tea is that it may lower blood pressure. Several studies have found that hibiscus tea may lower both systolic and diastolic blood pressure. In addition to lowering blood pressure, some studies have found that hibiscus tea may help lower blood fat levels, which are another risk factor for heart disease. Hibiscus tea is rich in powerful antioxidants and may therefore help prevent damage and disease caused by the buildup of free radicals. It is also high in polyphenols, which are compounds that have been shown to possess powerful anti-cancer properties.
  • Heather
    Heather is a woody and bushy evergreen shrub with multiple branching stems. It has miniature leaves that are like needles. The flowers of the heather are bell-shaped and are purple to pink in colour and are arranged in a multiple spike formation. Due to the attractiveness of its flowers, heathers are often used as a decorative and ornamental plant, and a landscaping complement. ​ Also known by its scientific name, Calluna vulgaris, heather is found in abundance in Scotland, Ireland, the Scandinavian countries, Russia and North America. ​ The flower, leaf, and plant top are used to make medicine. People take heather as a tea for kidney and lower urinary tract conditions, prostate enlargement, fluid retention, gout, arthritis, sleep disorders, breathing problems, cough, and colds.
  • Honeybush
    Honeybush tea is a South African herbal tea made from the leaves of the honeybush plant. It is grown on the Eastern Cape of South Africa and is closely related to rooibos tea (also known as red bush tea) which comes from the Western Cape of South Africa. While referred to as "tea", honeybush is actually a woody plant that can grow up to 10 feet (3 meters) high. It has pale yellow flowers with a characteristic sweet, honey-like scent and taste, which is where it gets its name from. Honeybush tea is naturally caffeine free. Although honeybush tea is often compared to rooibos tea, honeybush is usually sweeter and fuller bodied. Tea drinkers describe the taste of honeybush as floral, lightly roasted, and similar to honey. Honeybush tea is rich in a group of antioxidants called polyphenols. Antioxidants are beneficial plant compounds that help prevent and reduce cellular damage caused by oxidative stress. Honeybush tea’s polyphenols may help prevent, manage, and treat type 2 diabetes. Honeybush tea may benefit bone metabolism by affecting bone cells called osteoclasts and osteoblasts. Fortunately, test-tube studies suggest that mangiferin and hesperidin, which are both found in honeybush tea, may benefit bone metabolism. Furthermore, honeybush contains an expectorant that may help you to clear your throat and relieve coughing when you are sick.
  • Lavandin (Lavender)
    Lavandula x intermedia is the variety of lavender commonly called “lavandin.” Lavandin is a naturally occurring hybrid between two lavender species: Lavandula angustifolia (true lavender) and Lavandula latifolia (spike lavender). The true lavender grows higher in the mountains while the spike lavender or aspic as it is sometimes known grows down lower. Where they tended to meet they would cross pollinate and lavandin came into being. As it is a hybrid it’s appearance can vary some, but in general it is a larger plant than true lavender with woody stems. The most well known health benefit of lavender tea is its ability to induce calm. The relaxing effects of lavender tea can help improve sleep and may be used to treat sleep disorders. Lavender tea helps calm brain function by triggering chemical reactions in the nervous system. Lavender tea boosts the production of dopamine and reduces the stress hormone known as cortisol. One such study found that lavender increases the percentage of deep slow-wave sleep, which is considered the restorative sleep phase. Lavender tea boasts anti-inflammatory properties that can reduce inflammation and prevent a host of serious ailments. Reducing inflammation can prevent heart attacks by reducing the risk of blood clots caused by inflamed arteries. Lavender tea can also help alleviate pain by reducing inflammation of the muscles and joints. The anti-inflammatory properties of lavender help soothe irritated stomach muscles, eliminating stomach pain. These same antispasmodic effects can help relieve indigestion, gas, and bloating. Lavender tea contains high amounts of antioxidants and antibacterial compounds that can help fend off the common cold and flu. Lavender tea contains vitamin C, calcium, and magnesium. These nutrients support immune health and make it easier for the human body to fight off bacterial, fungal, and viral infections.
  • Lemon Balm
    Lemon balm is a perennial herbaceous plant in the mint family and native to south-central Europe, the Mediterranean Basin, Iran, and Central Asia, but now naturalised elsewhere. It grows to a maximum height of 1 m. The leaves have a mild lemon scent. During summer, small white flowers full of nectar appear. ​ Lemon balm is considered a calming herb. It was used as far back as the Middle Ages to reduce stress and anxiety, promote sleep, improve appetite, and ease pain and discomfort from indigestion (including gas and bloating, as well as colic). ​ Lemon balm has been used by pregnant women for many many years to help relieve anxiety, irritability, and insomnia.
  • Lemongrass
    Lemongrass is, not surprisingly, a member of the grass family. It is a perennial plant that grows in dense clumpsof stiff, upright stems. Each clump can grow up to 1.8 metres (6 feet) high, and 1.2 metres (4 feet) wide. The individual stalks look a bit like spring onions, but are much woodier. Many people find sipping hot tea to be relaxing, but lemongrass tea may offer further anxiety-reducing properties. By calming the mind and relieving anxiety, lemongrass can have a sedative effect, improving the quality of sleep. Drinking lemongrass tea can have diuretic effects, which means that it stimulates the kidneys to release more urine than usual. This diuretic effect on the body can be beneficial in cases where water retention leads to bloating. This is a common symptom of premenstrual syndrome (PMS). It also provides relief from hot flashes and helps in reducing menstrual pain due to its soothing effect. Lemongrass is nature’s formula for taming high blood pressure. It is rich in potassium which increases the production of urine in our body, which in turn stimulates blood circulation and lowers blood pressure. By increasing blood circulation, it also helps in purifying the liver. Lemongrass is also known to limit cholesterol absorption from the intestines, thus promoting overall heart health. Lemongrass has a cooling energy which helps to soothe your stomach and keeps your digestive functions in check. It contains a component called citral that helps to digest food. Therefore, it is best served after dinner. It has been used as an ancient remedy for all stomach problems like bloating, constipation or indigestion. Lemongrass contains several antioxidants and has antibacterial and anti-fungal properties that help you cope with cold, cough and flu. Plus, it is loaded with Vitamin C that strengthens your immunity. Lemongrass tea may help treat oral infections and cavities, thanks to its antimicrobial properties. The herb seems to reduce the incidence of thrush, a fungal infection that commonly affects people with weakened immune systems, such as those with HIV. A word of caution. Lemongrass tea is known to lower blood sugar levels. Therefore, diabetics should consult their doctor regarding its consumption. Similarly, pregnant or breast feeding women are advised to avoid lemongrass due to the workings of certain chemical compounds.
  • Nettle
    Nettle, or stinging nettle, is a shrub that boasts pretty, heart-shaped leaves and yellow or pink flowers, but the stem is covered in tiny, stiff hairs that release stinging chemicals when touched. However, once it is dried or cooked, stinging nettle can be safely consumed. Its scientific name, Urtica dioica, comes from the Latin word uro, which means “to burn,” because its leaves can cause a temporary burning sensation upon contact. The leaves, stem, or root from the nettle plant can be crushed and made into powders, tinctures, creams, teas, and more. While people have used it for centuries as an herbal medicine, modern research also supports many of the potential health benefits of nettle and nettle tea. Nettle is high in antioxidants and has been used as an anti-inflammatory since ancient medieval times. Nettle medicine was used for treating and curing a range of diseases including hay fever, bone-related issues, and allergies among others. It was used as a diuretic as well as to treat joint pain and muscle pain. Today, it is used to treat urinary tract infections, muscle and joint sprains, insect bites as well as skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis and acne. Nettle may help flush harmful bacteria from the urinary tract. This can benefit people who have urinary conditions, such as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). BPH causes an enlarged prostate gland in men. This can cause pain or other problems urinating. Nettle has shown some promising effects on blood glucose levels. It may help the pancreas make or release more insulin, the hormone that lowers blood sugar. Nettle is high in plant chemicals called polyphenols. A review of the research on polyphenols suggests that these powerful compounds may play a role in the prevention and management of chronic diseases related to inflammation, such as diabetes, obesity, cancer, and heart disease.
  • Oolong Tea
    Oolong tea is made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant, the same plant used to make green tea and black tea. The difference is in how the tea is processed. Researchers have found a connection in drinking oolong tea and lowering cholesterol levels. They attribute this to the presence of polyphenols and catechins that are in oolong. The polyphenol antioxidants found in tea are also thought to help reduce blood sugar and insulin levels as well as increase insulin sensitivity. Antioxidants are also known to fight free radicals and decrease inflammation. Due to their caffeine content, most teas are known for their metabolism boosting effects which may help you lose weight. However, a study found that the properties of actual oolong tea (rather than the caffeine) promotes a higher fat oxidation in relation to green tea and water. This makes oolong a perfect metabolism boosting option for drinkers who don’t want or need as much caffeine. Not only does oolong tea have caffeine, but it also contains an amino acid (L-theanine) that helps inhibit its release. You’ll notice a smoother and longer energy boost (without the crash) than a cup of coffee. The caffeine content in an 8-oz (250ml) cup of oolong tea is only about one-fourth of that found in the same amount of coffee.
  • Orange Peel
    As much as 30% of citrus peel is composed of pectin. Pectin is known to prevent constipation and improve the health of the digestive system. The pectin in orange peels also helps to avert spikes or falls in your levels of blood sugar. Almost all the anti-cholesterol compounds in oranges are found in the peels. These compounds help combat the LDL or ‘bad’ cholesterol in our bodies that form clots and plaque culminating in clogged heart arteries. Orange peels also help to relieve heartburn. Orange peels contain high doses of Vitamin C which is known to ward off the common cold, as well as increase blood circulation throughout the body. The anti-oxidants in oranges, especially vitamin C, may help avert numerous respiratory problems such as bronchitis, colds, flu, asthma, and lung cancer.
  • Raspberry Leaf
    For centuries, red raspberry leaves have been used to treat various health ailments and induce labor during pregnancy. They are high in many nutrients and may offer health benefits for pregnant and non-pregnant women alike. Red raspberry leaves contain polyphenols like tannins and flavonoids, which act as antioxidants in your body and can help protect cells from damage. In addition, the leaves contain small amounts of ellagic acids, which have been shown to neutralize carcinogens and even contribute to the self-destruction of cancer cells. Some research supports the anecdotal evidence of women saying that the leaves help relieve premenstrual symptoms (PMS), such as cramping, vomiting, nausea and diarrhea. While red raspberry leaf tea is typically recommended for the second and third trimesters of pregnancy, some women use the herbal remedy to help with nausea and vomiting in the first trimester as well. It has also been used to strengthen the uterus, improve labor outcome and prevent excessive bleeding after childbirth. Raspberry leaf tea has anti-inflammatory properties, which can help to soothe sore stomachs and prevent constipation by stimulating muscle contractions, which can help normalize bowel movements as well as ease bloating and cramps. Raspberry leaf tea can reduce the symptoms of arthritis, gout, headaches, fever, and gastrointestinal problems. This is due to the antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds it contains. You should always be careful before using red raspberry leaf tea or any other herbal supplements during your pregnancy. If you are thinking about giving the tea a try, you should always get the green light from your health care provider first. If your doctor does okay it, it’s best to drink the tea in moderation.

  • Spearmint Leaf
    Spearmint is commonly used to help relieve symptoms of indigestion, nausea, vomiting and gas. It's high in beneficial antioxidant compounds that help protect against and repair damage caused by free radicals. Due to spearmint tea's ability to inhibit testosterone, it can help to restore follicular development in the ovarian tissue and promote female hormones necessary for ovulation, such as luteinizing hormone (LH), follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and estradiol. If you struggle with elevated testosterone, hirsutism, or trouble ovulating spearmint tea can be a great addition as an herbal tea for PCOS. Spearmint also has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, which may help kill the bacteria in your mouth that cause bad breath. Spearmint promotes relaxation and reduce stress.

  • What makes tea a healthy beverage?
    Tea is a healthy beverage because it is rich in antioxidants, which help to protect the body against damage from free radicals. These antioxidants can help to reduce inflammation, improve heart health, and even lower the risk of certain types of cancer. Tea also contains caffeine, which can help to boost energy and alertness, and L-theanine, an amino acid that can help to reduce stress and promote relaxation. Additionally, tea is a low-calorie beverage that can help to support weight loss and promote hydration. At Wild Heart Tea, we offer a variety of high-quality teas that are both delicious and nutritious.

    Wild Heart Tea offers a range of teas and tisanes to cater to every palate. While black, green, and oolong teas contain varying levels of caffeine, tisanes are herbal teas that are naturally caffeine-free. As tea is a natural crop, determining precise caffeine levels is challenging, making it impossible for us to provide definitive figures. However, the table below presents average caffeine levels typically found in different teas. Please keep in mind that this chart serves as a general reference: Black tea: 25-90mg Oolong tea: 12-55mg Green tea: 8-36mg We kindly advise using this information as a guide, as individual caffeine content may vary.
  • Does the temperature of water affect the taste of tea?
