The Republic of Tea is one of the most trusted names in the world of tea and has been on my radar for many years. I remember the first one of their teas I tried – a green tea that caught my eye in a Joe Mugg’s shop. I initially fell in love with their beautiful canisters (I am ALL about packaging, if you haven’t noticed by now), then when I began buying their teas, I fell even further in love because they’re extraordinary.
The Republic of Tea has just released a new line of organic SuperHerb Teas for women this month. THese organic teas are unique blends of powerful herbs with complementing fruits and spices that have a wide range of health benefits for women through all phases of life.
I spend a great deal (make that GREAT DEAL) of time reading about healing foods, drinks, and herbs for two of my other blogs, Self Help Daily and Out of Bounds. If we’re being honest, however, most of the reading and research I do is out of love for my family (husband, three daughters, and three sons-I-never had). I want them to all be as healthy as possible. So I know all too well that we have more control of our health and physical well-being than most people realize.
Every single time we decide what we’re going to put into our bodies, we are exercising this control!
Not only does each bite and each sip carry us either closer to or further away from optimum health, but what we put into our bodies can actually help with common ailments and/or health concerns such as…
- joint pain
- hot flashes
The Republic of Tea has 4 exciting new tea blends that can help us women in various stages of life. Keep reading to see which one (or 2, 3, or 4!) sound the most intriguing to you.
The 4 new organic tea blends just released from The Republic of Tea:
1. Fenugreek for Nursing Moms
Fenugreek is nature’s most popular herb for supporting healthy breast milk production. A smooth blend with a hint of organic cinnamon, this caffeine-free tea offers a soothing and delicious moment of relaxation.
2. Sage for Calm & Hot Flashes
Sage is an ancient herb known to help keep the body cool and calm, even in the midst of menopausal hormone surges. A refreshing blend with tropical pineapple notes, this caffeine-free tea is especially revitalizing cooled and served over ice.
3. Raspberry Leaf for Women’s Health
Red raspberry leaf has a wide range of health benefits for women, and can help at virtually every stage of life – fertility, pregnancy, nursing and menopause. This tea is reminiscent of a fruity parfait with a juicy blend of rosehips, vanilla and berry notes.
4. Nettle for Inflammation, Kidney Function & More
Our Nettle tea is for both men and women. Nettle leaves can help reduce inflammation and support kidneys. Organic nettle leaves with a touch of peppermint and vanilla makes this tea a joy to sip.
I was offered a sample of a tea of my choice in exchange for telling my tea blog readers about the wonderful new teas. Since I am a Raspberry tea fanatic (drinking it all day, everyday qualifies as fanatical, does it not?), I chose the Raspberry Leaf tea. I also loved that it covered “any stage,” since that’s pretty much where I live.
From The Republic of Tea’s Website: Red Raspberry Leaf is perhaps the most popular herb among midwives and herbalists. From fertility to pregnancy to nursing to even menopause,* this herb can help women at virtually every stage of life.* It has been long revered for its ability to help tone uterine muscles and balance menstrual cycles.* With a hint of vanilla and berry notes, this tea is reminiscent of a fruity parfait.

Organic Raspberry Leaf SuperHerb Tea Review
When brewing tea for one of my tea reviews, I always try it, first, hot and then iced. I made a large mug of the Raspberry Leaf to enjoy with my afternoon reading. Tea and an Agatha Christie mystery were made for one another, you know.
The tea was amazing – one of the things I’ve always found lovely about The Republic of Tea is the fact that they are subtle. You never get any overwhelming “in your face” flavors or notes. The star of each show is the tea, itself, which is exactly as it should be.
After all, if we were after fruit juice, wouldn’t we buy it?!
The perfect cup of tea is one in which you take a sip and know you’re drinking a great cup of tea. Then, you have the lovely extra flavor or flavors in the background. This is exactly (and consistently) how it is with The Republic of Tea and this tea is no exception.
I finished the cup of tea in the time it took me to read two chapters. There was excellence in each and every sip.
When it came time (at supper) to try it iced, I have to admit, I thought, “It probably won’t be as great as the hot version was…” Not only was I wrong, I was ridiculously wrong… the iced version of this tea is even more delicious and memorable than the hot. You’re able to taste the different (beautiful) flavors in the tea when it’s iced (or even room temp). Unlike traditional tea bags, when making iced tea with The Republic of Tea, you don’t need to use nearly as many bags per pitcher. My favorite way to go about it, however is to simply brew the amount I’ll be using per glass.
I can’t recommend this Raspberry Leaf tea enough – it’s a perfect 10 hot and a perfect 10-1/2 iced!
