Q. What’s Traditional Chinese Medicine?
With over 2,000 years of history, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a rich and comprehensive wellbeing system that encompasses nutrition, physical therapies and herbal remedies.
TCM celebrates balance as the key to a happy, healthy life. Therapies focus on equalizing the contrary forces of yin and yang and restoring the natural flow of qi. By bringing the body into balance, immunity is enhanced, emotions are harmonized and vitality is unleashed.

Q. What’s the best time of day to enjoy a tisane?
Any time – although we do have our preferences!
We love a cup of cordyceps & rose herbal tea first thing in the morning for a boost of energy. Our chrysanthemum & goji tisane is wonderful before bed, or during a particularly busy or stressful day. And many swear by the soothing comfort of our hawthorn & osmanthus herbal infusion after a good meal.
But really, any time you feel in need of some tender loving care is a good time for a tisane.

Q. How long will it take to feel the health benefits?
Although many report feeling physical benefits almost immediately, our tisanes are not designed to be a quick fix. They are designed to provide deep, nurturing support with benefits that build over time.
The mental and emotional benefits of taking a moment to relax and rebalance, however, are certainly felt right away.
Q. Can I take too much?
No. If you’re feeling particularly out of balance and in need of nourishment, we encourage you to sip your favorite tisane throughout the day. The positive effects on your wellbeing are cumulative and will only continue to grow.
