A cup full of potential

A cup full of potential

aaah! Nourishing Tea is now online so you can get your favourite blends delivered right to your door (and it’s a great gift idea for Christmas too)

aaah! Nourishing Tea will open your mind to a new and exciting sensory experience – visit to see the extensive variety of teas available, all selected by owner/operator Leanne Pratt, who brings to the company over seven years’ experience as a herbalist and naturopath.

You can order your favourite blends, or try one of the exotic flavours unique to aaah!, and also find great gifts and ideas for hampers. Tea paraphernalia such as teapots, strainers, and storage tins are also on offer, and there is an extensive offering of loose tea to purchase.

Key offerings include the Healing Herbs range, which has been specially blended by Leanne for specific health concerns such as stress, insomnia, detox, and pregnancy, and Matcha, which is made from a fine, powdered green tea and differs from other green teas because the whole leaf is consumed (whereas other teas are produced by soaking the leaves which are then discarded). It therefore boasts a wider range of health benefits.

A small sample of the flavours:

  • Cinnamon Plum

  • Orange ginger Spice

  • Vanilla Queen

  • Creamy Caramel

  • China Sencha

  • Darjeeling Margaret’s Hope

  • Pure Organic Rooibus

Tea provides a simple solution to getting your daily dose of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, and acts like a nourishing tonic – it is generally considered to be better for you than water as it has more to offer, and is ideal for maintaining general health and wellbeing. The aim is to educate and improve general health of customers by providing a unique and healthy alternative to the beverages we are used to being served.

aaah! moves past the teabag to offer a complete package, from information about the health benefits of tea and how different flavours will affect your wellbeing, to an emphasis on outstanding customer service, and with an environmentally-friendly philosophy.
‘aaah!’ is more than a name, it’s an emotion. The first time you pick up a cup of tea and put it to your lips, you’ll understand exactly where ‘aaah!’ comes from – a deep sense of satisfaction and pleasure.
