Sip Yourself Slim With Edible Beauty Tea

Posted by Anna Mitsios on

When it comes to detoxifying, removing excess fluid and trimming down, using natural herbs is one of the most effective and therapeutic ways to get the results you desire. Three of my favourite products for slimming down include No.1 Green Goddess Detox Tea, No. 6 Puff Away Tea & No. 7 Slim Me tea. In … Continue reading

No. 1 Green Goddess Detox Tea

Our Green Goddess blend is our bestselling Beauty Tea at Edible Beauty. There are two reasons why. Firstly, it is wonderfully therapeutic and medicinal, but secondly it tastes light and refreshing. We have brought in the big guns when it comes to detoxifying with Schizandra Berry, St Mary’s Thistle and Dandelion Root. The medicinal action of these herbs lies in their ability to heal and regenerate the liver and to assist the liver in clearing toxins from the body. Interestingly, St Mary’s Thistle has been clinically shown to assist in the management of Type 2 diabetes. These herbs are often promoted as “hang-over” cures and anecdotally I have seen them as being effective in hastening recovery from a few too many margaritas.

In their traditional preparation the liver loving herbs in this blend are often bitter. However rest assured, we have artfully combined them with lemongrass, ginger and calendula which make this tea a delight to drink either hot or iced with a squeeze of lemon and lime. Aim to have three cups daily for a period of two weeks for maximum therapeutic action.

No. 6 Puff Away Tea

Puff Away is a kidney cleansing tea which has a wonderful diuretic action. The synergistic blend of the herbs in this blend work to reduce water retention, puffiness and revive tired eyes and skin. This blend is particularly unique due to the addition of an Amazonian herb named Guayusa. Guayusa is rich in nutrients including theobromine, a compound which reduces inflammation and blood pressure while also acting as a diuretic. Guayusa has traditionally been used to detoxify the blood, improve the function of the kidneys and urinary tract, and improve digestion and elimination. Dandelion leaves, Nettle and Juniper Berries, which are also found in the tea blend, act as diuretics, flushing the kidneys and assisting in accelerating their filtration activity. This tea has an uplifting spearmint flavor which makes it easy to have about two to three cups daily for maximum therapeutic action. Have this tea during the day so your sleep is not disturbed with visits to the bathroom.

No. 7 Slim Me Tea

One of most beautiful tea blends, No. 7 Slim Me is the most popular amongst our female body builder customers who love to use this blend in the lead up to competitions. It contains the very special Pu-erh tea. This tea has been used for more than 1,700 years in China.

Pu-erh is renowned for its special ability to assist in weight loss and fat burning. It works to boost the metabolism, improve digestion and reduce fat absorption. Drinking this tea an hour after meals is the most effective way to improve fat digestion and reduce fat absorption. This teas is more effective than standard black tea due to the method of its preparation.

Pu-erh tea is fermented similarly to oolong tea and then goes through an additional process called post-fermentation. After the tea is fermented, the leaves are sun-dried, and aged in a high humidity environment. This fermentation process increases the potency of the actives in the tea, enhancing its therapeutic benefits.

As an added benefit, this tea works to improve mental alertness and to stimulate blood flow to the central nervous system. This tea is very easy to drink with a deliciously mellow and earthy flavour.

Beauty & Immunity Coco Latte

Posted by Anna Mitsios on

With the cold and flu season in full force prevention is often a better option than cure.

The “beauty” of the smoothie recipe below is that it doubles as a skin saving tonic and is perfect for immune boosting beauty action.

We love our coconut oil in our skin care and in our food. One of the things that people do not know about coconut oil is that it can reduce the length of a cold or flu. Having four tablespoons of coconut oil a day is the perfect dose for getting to a cold/flu before it takes affect.

Ginger root is antimicrobial and helps to eliminate congestion. It is also a powerful anti-inflammatory so will not only help with keeping puffiness at bay, it also contains silicon which helps to promote healthy skin.

Most of us know about the anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial actions of turmeric. However, due to turmeric’s antioxidant properties, it has been used for skin rejuvenation for centuries. It can help to soften lines and wrinkles, giving the face a more youthful appearance. It is also effective in assisting the redness associated with rosacea. In fact it is easy to make a turmeric face mask with a variant of the smoothie ingredients below. Take a few tablespoons of coconut milk stir in 1 to 2 tablespoons of turmeric and Manuka honey until you have a firm paste.  Apply all over the face and in particular under they eyes as turmeric works wonderfully to reduce under eye circles.

Ginger, cinnamon and orange juice are wonderful additions to this smoothie, boosting the body’s natural defences and keeping immunity in check.


– 1.5 cups of coconut milk

– 2 teaspoons of ginger (raw root ginger)

– 2 teaspoons of turmeric (raw root turmeric)

– juice 1 orange

– Pinch of cinnamon

– 2 tablespoons of manuka honey

– 20 drops of Echinacea extract (optional)

– Option: 1 cup spinach tightly packed or 2 cups loosely packed mixed greens (or any other mild greens)


1. Blend the dry ingredients (turmeric, ginger), juice and coconut milk first for a short time.

2. Blend the greens next for a short time (if using).

Fountain of Youth Elixir Recipe

Posted by Anna Mitsios on


Edible Beauty teas make the perfect base for smoothies, adding an incredible depth of flavour and enhancing the nutrition of your favourite liquid delights.

One of the most versatile teas for this purpose is No. 2 Fountain of Youth Tea. This tastes wonderful hot, iced with a squeeze of lime and/or frozen berries or as a base of an ultra antioxidant rich smoothie blend.

The recipe below is simple yet efficiently combines super-charged antioxidant-rich ingredients to create a potent youth and beauty boosting cocktail. The three ingredients which make this smoothie unique include:

  • Hibiscus: Hibiscus has been used as a traditional remedy in many Asian, African and Caribbean countries for years. Hibiscus is high antioxidants, which fight cellular damage and support the immune system. The natural chemicals in hibiscus also are known to benefit cardiovascular health, promote digestive and bowel regularity.
  • Pineapple & Papaya: This tisane contains the fruit superstars of anti-ageing. Pineapple and Papaya are abundant in natural Alpha-Hydroxy Acids (AHA’s) and regularly feature in many anti-ageing skin formulas. Papaya also contains papain, a natural enzyme that promotes skin renewal and cell turnover to provide an all over glow.
  • Maqui Berry: Maqui berry (Aristotelia chilensis) is an intensely purple berry that grows wild throughout parts of southern Chile. Maqui berries contain unusually high levels of anthocyanins (antioxidants) called delphinidins. The delphinidins demonstrate potent anti-inflammatory activity, and a powerful ability to fight against oxidative stress. Studies show this compound is what gives the berries the ability to assist in regulating blood sugar levels, protecting against bowel cancer and assist weight loss. The berries have a wonderful sweet tart flavour described as a combination of blackberries, blueberries, watermelon and acai. 



  • 1.5 cups of No. 2 Fountain of Youth Tea brewed and cooled
  • 0.5 cups of frozen mixed berries
  • 0.5 cups of frozen cherries
  • 0.5 cups of chopped pineapple (optional)
  • 2 teaspoons of Maqui Berry powder
  • 1/4 vanilla bean either whole or beans scraped


  • Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until combined. Serve cold garnished with fresh berries and a sprinkle of Maqui berry powder.
