Belly Becalm (Digestion)

When it comes to human well-being, the ancient physician Hippocrates (460 BC – 370 BC) summed it up succinctly: “All disease begins in the gut.” Unfortunately, in our busy modern age, gut health too often falls to the wayside. Our busy lives mean many of us rely too much on foods we know aren’t good for us. In America alone, more than 50 million people eat fast food every single day -a staggering number to say the least. With meals-on-the-go a reality for so many of us, what to do? Drink herbal tea! Bely Becalm, a luscious, flavorful concoction of premium herbs and flowers was blended to combat the problem.

The blend, a smorgasbord of ingredients selected for their purported ability to aid digestion and soothe the gut, hits all the right notes. We start with peppermint, prized as a digestive aid by people at all times. According to the University of Maryland Medical Centre, peppermint “calms the muscles of the stomach and improves the flow of bile, which the body uses to digest fats.” Belly Becalm also incorporates cinnamon, cardamom, lemon balm and ginger, a collection of herbs said to aid digestion, by Ayurveda practitioners. Rounding out the blend are antioxidant rich liquorice, fennel and Burdock root, all considered to be digestive powerhouses by adherents of traditional medicine.

The next time your stomach is rumbling, and it isn’t from hunger, grab the kettle, pour yourself a Cup and settle in for a dose of calming comfort. Here’s to Hippocrates – Belly Becalm (Digestion)!


Bring filtered or freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea for each 7-9oz / 200-260ml of fluid volume in the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea). Milk and sugar are not recommended. Ideal Brewing Temperature: 100ºC/212ºF.


(Pitcher): (to make 1 liter/quart): Place 6 slightly heaping teaspoons of herbal tea into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Using filtered or freshly drawn cold water, boil and pour 1¼ cups/315ml over the herbal tea. Steep for 5-10 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher, straining the tea. Add ice and top-up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing freshly brewed iced herb & fruit tea is to increase the strength of hot brew since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water.

(Individual Serving): Place 1 slightly heaping tea spoons of herbal tea into teapot for each serving required. Using filtered or freshly drawn cold water, boil and pour 6-7oz/170-200ml per serving over the herbal tea. Cover and let steep for 5-10 minutes. Add hot tea to a 12oz/375ml acrylic glass filled with ice, straining the tea. Not all of the tea will fit, allowing for approximately an additional ½ serving. Garnish and sweeten to taste. A rule of thumb when preparing freshly brewed herb & fruit tea is to increase the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted.

We strongly recommend using filtered or freshly drawn cold water brought to a rolling boil when brewing all types of tea. Today’s water has been known to carry viruses, parasites and bacteria. Boiling the water will kill these elements and reduce the potential incidence of water-borne illnesses.
