By now everyone knows about Chia and its superfood properties. Chia leaf also makes an extraordinary tea. It is similar to standard green tea, only it has a mild floral tone, no astringency, and is very very pleasant to drink.

We have been growing CHIA on our farm in the Hokianga for some time, alongside Goji and figs, macadamias, blood oranges, olives and so on.

We love chia, and have extensive data on its properties.

We hand harvest the finest leaf and tips and air dry it. There is no fermentation, just natural tea.

The leaves are surprisngly tasty by themselves and just a few leaves in a cup will suffice, or add it as an extra to your favourite blend.

Only minimal handling is involved, the gentlest of harvesting pratices, grown using full organic practices in the beautiful pure Hokianga land we call home.

5 grams will seriously make quite alot of tea, you only need a few leaves at a time.So roughly you are looking at 30 small pots of tea (2 -3 cups per pot).

Heres what it can do:

"Chia leaves steeped in boiling water, make a therapeutic tea. Use the tea as a blood cleanser and tonic, also for fevers, pain relief, arthritis, respiratory problems, mouth ulcers, diabetes, diarrhoea, gargle for inflamed throats, to reduce blood pressure, cholesterol and triglyceride levels and to strengthen the nervous system. Try the tea sweetened with honey and a few drops of lemon juice added. Women who suffer with hot flushes may find relief, by drinking Chia leaf tea, regularly. An Australian TV program highlighted the benefit of Chia tea, made with a few, freshly chopped leaves (or dried), for anyone feeling lethargic or lacking energy. Chia contains several very strong antioxidants that help to remove toxins from the body, which then give a feeling of improved health.

Works for me!
