evermore steamCalmer Sutra Tea
Originating in Melbourne Australia by tea enthusiast Caitlyn West, she took her passion and created “Calmer Sutra Fresh Chai.”  It wasn’t until 2014 that her sister-in-law, Debra Means-West introduced the Calmer craze to the U.S.    

Chai is a mix of spices like ginger and cinnamon that are known to soothe your stomach and help with digestion.   If you need to settle your tummy, Chai is the got to. 

Chamomile is known for significantly relaxing the body’s blood vessels and smoothing out muscle fibers in your body. Drink chamomile tea 45 minutes before bed for a more restful sleep.

Black tea is great for losing weight! It has an antioxidant that kicks up the body’s metabolism and gives a better and longer caffeine boost than coffee! 

Peppermint tea is the perfect cure for all the body’s aches and pains.  The menthol helps soothe muscles and the minty scent calms nerves. Perfect for cramps to migraines.

Overall, tea helps skin look great because of the antioxidants and helps hydrate the body. For more information, visit the Calmer Sutra Tea website.
