Camellia's Tea House can now be found in beautiful spas
around the world and we were recently covered by an
article in the Beauty Network
(www.the-beauty-network.com) as to why tea can and should be
used as a wellness product within the spa industry..
Have Your Say
Ajit Madan is the founder of Camellia's Tea House
In London and explains why tea is a great addition to your spa menu
due to its healing and well being properties.
"Many people naturally regard tea as containing numerous
healthy properties. We often hear stories of research being
undertaken in countries such as Japan or China where strong
correlations between tea drinking and better health, such as lower
than average incidences of cancer, heart disease or stroke, have
"It is well known that fruit and vegetables are good
sources of antioxidants however it is less well known that green
and black tea contain tea flavonoids which have strong anti oxidant
properties i.e. inhibiting damage to cells through oxidation by
free radicals, which are well known to protect against conditions
such as cancer, heart disease and stroke. Whilst tea is not a
replacement for fruit and vegetables, studies have shown that
drinking two to four cups of tea a day has approximately the same
antioxidant "potency" as eating six apples!"
"The most common vitamins and minerals found in tea are
Vitamin C, B, E, calcium, zinc, potassium and manganese. Tea is
also a great source of fluoride and has been proven to strengthen
teeth and reduce plaque." "Herbal medicine is a widely practised
and regarded form of alternative medicine. Unlike most other tea
companies, we prefer to blend our teas by hand to ensure that the
herbs and tea leaves are as a high a quality as possible i.e.
unbroken whole leaves have greater flavour and therapeutic potency
compared to herbal drinks or teas which are crushed in machines to
fit in to tea bags."
"With health, handmade attention and beauty at its core,
the teas at Camellia's Tea House teas are perfect for spa
environments either as part of an overall spa therapy treatment
e.g. their beautiful skin tea can work very well after a facial, or
in relaxation areas or receptions. With competition so fierce among
spas, we believe that introducing natural, interesting and
beautiful products to your spa helps to differentiate the premium
spas from the average ones."
"There is a clear demand from spa clients now for non
medicinal forms of treatment such as the trend in med spas and
combined with the very rapid growth of speciality teas across the
world, we believe that teas should be an important part of the
wellbeing process and if they are used in an food and beverage
context, they can significantly increase revenues and gross
margins. We know all about revenues and margins in a client-facing
environment because we have been running our own highly acclaimed
tearooms in Central London for many years and many of our clients
are from The Middle East. Camellia's Tea House is a tea wellness
brand; many of their handmade teas have been designed using teas,
herbs and flowers which help specific health ailments from clear
skin to diabetes - they claim this is a more natural and gentler
alternative to mainstream medicine."
