Herbs & Teas

Herbal teas are an easy way for the uninitiated to begin to experience the power of plants. For those of us who use herb teas regularly they are already a valued part of our kitchen, contributing to our wellbeingon a daily basis . They are certainly an essential element of our dispensary in Nimbin. Our teas are packaged in bags or refillable plastic containers for your convenience and come with instructions for making your tea, whether it be a root, berry or leaf tea.

Where possible we source organically certified herbs for our dispensary as we believe that quality is of paramount importance when it comes to our health. We don't stock large quantities of any tea as we believe the fresher the herb the better the taste and properties of the tea.

Generally herb teas are considered safe to use but please take note of some of the cautions we have placed alongside a few herbs. If you are trying herbal teas to manage chronic health problems please consult with a qualified herbalist. If in doubt please contact us prior to placing your order.
