Think of positivity as an abundant lake; one that grows and fills with water and life the more we nurture it.
With belief we have the power to foresee how beautiful our lake can be ... the wildlife, the flora, the fauna, the clarity and purity of the water. All growing and thriving despite unpredictable storms and unprecedented environmental changes.
Our new tea cases have been created in collaboration with M I L L I O T & C O - our founder Ashleigh was asked to hand draw the designs for this new partnership.

Even though not technically teas, tisane teas are herbal teas which formed a major part of the tea world. It is the infusion or decoction made from a plant other than Camellia sinensis--the plant true teas (green tea, black tea, oolong, etc.) are made from. They are caffeine free and can be served hot or cold.

Every so often we buy quality loose leaf teas, only to drink them for a week and then we forget about them. If not kept properly, they might just get mouldy, which is a waste. Here at Tea Bird Tea we are serious about wasting our resources, that equally goes with our teas too.

Growing up around Irish food philosophies, Ashleigh Cotterill was amused by friends who swore by supplements and protein powders. Although she leaves each to his own, she does believe in the medicinal properties of food. Herbs and spices have been used for healing by cultures around the world across civilisations and modern understanding of their curative properties backs this practice.
The Irish-born marketing executive and artist began actively propagating this in 2014 after her son was born, selling herb and vegetable seeds under the Balcony Bloomer brand in farmers’ markets around Bondi and the Gold Coast while living in Australia. Balcony Bloomer carried herbs such as basil to lower blood pressure, coriander to reduce inflammation in the joints, and mint and chilli to increase metabolism. As sales increased, so too did customer requests and subsequent ideas.

If you’ve ever been interested in the idea of replacing medicine with food, look no further than your spice cabinet. That ground turmeric that you use only in the occasional curry? It holds powers that will trump what’s in your medicine cabinet.
Turmeric is mostly known for its anti-inflammatory properties. This means that a few dashes of the spice will not only help with the inflammation that you can see, like swelling and rashes, but also with inflammation that takes place inside the body, like leaky gut syndrome.
Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) is an herb that has been used as a natural diuretic in folk medicine for a long time (11).
Natural diuretics may help reduce water retention by making you pee more often.
In one study, 17 volunteers took three doses of dandelion leaf extract over a 24-hour period.
They monitored their fluid intake and output during the following days, and reported a significant increase in the amount of urine produced (12).
Although this was a small study with no control group, the results indicate that dandelion extract may be an effective diuretic.
Bottom Line: Dandelion may help reduce water retention, especially when consumed as a leaf extract.
