benefits of teko teas

Teko teas are Icelandic tea blends that contain herbs such as wild thyme, birch leaves, Icelandic moss, sweet cicely, and meadowsweet. Wild thyme, Icelandic moss and sweet cicely have antimicrobial effects and have compounds that act on the respiratory system to alleviate breathing problems, cold and cough as well as the digestive system to relieve stomach upset. Wild thyme has also been shown to have anti-tumor properties. Birch leaves are rich in vitamin C and are excellent to treat infections of the urinary tract. Meadowsweet has diuretic and anti-inflammatory properties.
