How a nice cup of tea can help your gut feelings

Far be it from me to offer health advice to anyone. 

My idea of tea differs from that of most people, in that I tend to match tea with food. 

I love a cup of English breakfast with milk and sugar paired with a greasy full breakfast; and enjoy a cup of green tea with dim sum in Chinatown. 

But when it comes to a beverage on its own, I'm more likely to opt for wine, beer, a cranberry juice, or a short black. 

I've just learned, however, that a new product range from Australia tea maker Nerada is a health drink. 

While I find kombucha largely beyond the pale, I'm more than willing to enjoy a nice cup of tea if it also going to boost my gut health (although I have a very healthy gut that I see each morning in the mirror).

Nerada, based on the Atherton Tablelands of Far North Queensland, has just launched a new range of feel-good herbal infusions with added probiotics "to support digestive health".

The range includes Detox with dandelion, nettle, lemon verbena, senna and milk thistle; Relax with camomile, valerian, lavender and lemon balm, and my favourite: Digest with ginger, peppermint, fennel and lemongrass. 

All three are powered by a natural (and neutral-tasting) vegan probiotic ingredient, the dangerous-sounding GanedenBC30.

Each teabag contains a 500 million probiotic serving, so just two cups of tea will provide the recommended daily 1 billion probiotic serving for gut health, which basically means good digestive and immune health. 

Nerada Tea’s national sales and marketing manager Brenden Minehan said: “For many years, Nerada has pioneered new ranges in the tea category within Australia. 

"Now, as we enter our 50th year of growing tea here in Australia, we’re continuing to do something different to meet consumers’ growing interest in health and wellness products. We’re proud to launch this new Probiotic Infusion Range that includes an innovative range of refreshing flavours – something new and exciting to explore.”

The new range is available now at independent retailers or online at neradatea.com.au at an RRP of $7.50 per pack (20 teabags). 


Anyone interested can buy all three varieties for a special promotional price of $20 including free postage within Australia. Available exclusively on the Nerada website for a limited time only.
