Red Hook Mama Teas

Red Hook Mama Teas are made in Red Hook, Brooklyn with great heart–and each bag is hand-filled and -tied by an Ivy League graduate. Available at HomeSpa and, soon, Mongo. Choose from three formulations:

1) NERVE RESTORATIVE

The Complaint: Our darling is pushed to full capacity; her last nerve is frayed. Her mind is excessively troubled, unable to settle upon any one matter or occupation, yet so forth and so on must she proceed. She requires those herbs and roots that will strengthen and revitalize her nerves, rather than tranquilizing her mental state into unproductive oblivion.

Directive: Steep one teabag for five full minutes in a large cup or small bowl. Drink three times daily, using the same teabag. Repeat 10 consecutive days.

Certified Organic Ingredients: Dandelion root, Siberian ginseng, Astragalus, Burdock root, Cinnamon, Licorice root, Cardamom seeds, Ginger.

2) BILIOUSNESS REMEDY

The Complaint: The blood feels sluggish, gastric distress abounds, mental function is cloudy and heavy. It is possible that our darling has been indulging excessively. She requires those herbs that will restore her liver to proper and clean function so as to rejuvenate her health overall.

Directive: Steep one teabag for five full minutes in a large cup or small bowl. Drink three times daily, using the same teabag. Repeat 10 consecutive days.

Certified Organic Ingredients: Nettle leaf, Dandelion leaf, Lemon balm, Red clover leaf, Ginger root, Pau d’ Arco bark, Orange peel.

3) REJUVENATING TONIC FOR WOMEN

The Complaint: Our darling is slave to the lash of monthly cycles—one moment giddy and joyful, the next inexplicably tearful, the next full of venom and outrage. It is not her fault: The female constitution is hardy, but remarkably complex. It needs those herbs that combine to produce soothing harmony and regulation.

Directive: Steep one teabag for five full minutes in a large cup or small bowl. Drink three times daily, using the same teabag. Repeat 10 consecutive days.

Certified Organic Ingredients: Chaste berry, Dandelion root, Burdock root, Ginger root, Licorice root, Cinnamon, Orange peel, Wild yam.
