Since inception, the company has been packing tea under the core brand ‘Hyleys’.

Our Promise

In spite of the growing interest in tea and natural remedies, there are only very few teas, which contain purely natural components. Most teas on the shop shelves contain artificial or nature identical flavors. It is clear that such products have neither the right taste, the aroma, nor health benefit, as in teas blended with pure natural fruit and herbs. We promise to deliver “luxury in a cup”, here is what you can expect from Hyleys:

HEALTH BENEFITS OF DRINKING TEA

Tea is a name given to a lot of brews, but more commonly referred to as the aromatic beverage prepared by pouring boiling water over cured leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant. The term herbal tea usually refers to infusions of fruit or herbs made without the tea plant, such as steeps of rosehip, chamomile, or rooibos. These are sometimes called tisanes or herbal infusions to prevent confusion with tea made from the tea plant. Being connoisseurs, when we say ‘tea’, we refer to the infusion of Camellia sinensis.

Regardless of the season, tea can be a refreshing beverage since it can be served hot or cold. In any case, its advantages go long ways past just refreshment. The flavonoids, antioxidants and polyphenolic compounds in tea have made it a popular remedy for a wide variety of ailments and afflictions, and can even be used in topical applications for certain issues.
