Handcrafted Seasonal Medicinal Tea Blends

Please enjoy a cup of our seasonal customized herbal teas after your treatments. Our current selection of hand-blended teas contain an array of organic ingredients: rose, chrysanthemum, osmanthus, honeysuckle, crystalized ginger, and cherry blossom!

These herbal ingredients have numerous health benefits:


Rose contains phytonutrients which are chemical compounds produced by the plant that have antioxidant properties. Consumption of phytonutrients has been shown to reduce the risk of cancer by 40% due to its ability to inhibit the cancer cell growth. Rose is also high in Vitamin C and E which protect and promote healthy skin.


Chrysanthemum is packed with potassium which helps lower the risk of arthritis, cancer, infertility, stroke, heart disease, high blood pressure, and digestive disorders. Chrysanthemum is also rich in iron which is essential for growth and development, and delivering oxygen throughout the blood.


Osmanthus is a great source of antioxidants, specifically polyphenols. Clinical trials have shown that these polyphenol compounds can reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as coronary artery disease. Osmanthus flower is also high in niacin (vitamin B3), which helps improve and regulate brain function, skin health, blood fat levels, and high blood pressure.


Cherry Blossom is also rich in antioxidants that naturally enhance the skin’s natural barrier against bacteria, UV rays, and other environmental factors. Research has shown that the bioactive compounds in this flower assist in inhibiting toxins that lead to aging in the skin, thereby creating a more glowing complexion.


Honeysuckle has been shown to help those who suffer from type 2 diabetes and arthritis. In one study, researchers administered honeysuckle to diabetic rats to decrease their high blood glucose levels. Another study revealed that honeysuckle's antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties can treat patients diagnosed with arthritis.


Crystallized ginger has anti-inflammatory properties and has been shown to exhibit natural pain-relieving effects that are comparable to ibuprofen. Research also shows ginger can help treat nausea, vomiting, upset stomach, and motion sickness.
