What is in our Respiratory tea?

Our naturopath has carefully selected this blend of organic herbs, to offer support for the respiratory system. Herbs used in this blend including echinacea, elderflower and turmeric, have traditionally been used to help protect and soothe the lining of the respiratory tract, reduce the duration and severity of a cough, or a cold and support healthy respiratory function.

Our ingredients for this blend are sourced from Egypt, India, Indonesia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and China – and hand packed with care, by us, in Victoria, Australia.

What is our packaging made from?

The clear pouch that holds our Respiratory tea is not made from plastic. It is made from a renewable plant-based cellophane, which can also easily be home composted and will break down in a few short months if composted correctly.

The cardboard is made from post-consumer recycled board, is printed with vegetable-based inks and can also be home composted after use where it will break down in a few short months if composted correctly.

Our pyramid tea bags are also not made from plastic. They are made from a biodegradable, non-GMO, plant-based material called Soilon, which meets all compostability standards in Japan, North America and Europe. However it is important to note, they will definitely take longer than other compost items to decompose. The material manufacturers recommend commercial composting as a quicker alternative to address this longer time of breakdown.

If you are looking for the most environmentally friendly option, we will always recommend drinking loose leaf tea.
