Organic Kawakawa Loose Tea

Savor the aromatic and immune-boosting blend of medicinal herbs in Organic Kawakawa Loose Tea. Blended using New Zealand’s native kawakawa leaves, this delectable, caffeine-free tea is a tasty treat containing a bounty of active ingredients.  

New Zealand’s native kawakawa plant is well-known for its high concentrations of medicinal properties. Eating the leaves or brewing them as part of a tea has been advised by Maori healers for many years to improve blood circulation, ease bladder issues and soothe digestive complaints. 

Infused with additional herbal remedies including lemongrass, ginger and calendula, Kawa Organic Loose Tea can help to boost immunity, improve digestion and detoxify your system. 

Also grown on NZ soils, organic calendula is renowned for being a great antifungal and antibacterial herb, helping to ease eczema and support healthy teeth and gums. Calendula is also said to support memory and cognitive function.
