Long After Midnite is a leaf and flower organic herbal tea (also known as a tisane) made of organic chamomile flower, organic lemon balm and organic calendula flower.
Herbal tisanes (pronounced tea-zahn) are a major part of the tea world and are referred to as an herbal tea made from a plant other than Camellia sinensis.
This tisane is caffeine-free and can be served hot or cold and drunk for both enjoyment and medicinal purposes. High in antioxidants and nutrients, tisanes are made from a blend of many plant types.
Organic Chamomile Flower is gentle and effective in promoting relaxation and digestive health*. Chamomile is a gentle herb known throughout most of the world which has been used continually for many centuries as an herbal tea. It is often ingested as a tea for calming and to soothe the digestive tract. It is mild enough to be administered to babies.
Chamomile has magical implications for attracting money and, accordingly, as a hand rinse for gamblers needing good luck.
According to herbalist Matthew Becker the type of person who responds best to chamomile is one “who complains often…fretful children…and adults who act like children.” Chamomile possesses what well known and respected herbalist Rosemary Gladstar describes as “soft power” to alleviate occasional stress and tension.

Persons with allergies to other members of the Asteraceae family should exercise caution with chamomile. The infusion should not be used near the eyes.

Organic Calendula Flower: Nicholas Culpepper, a 17th century botanist, herbalist and astrologist, mentioned using calendula flowers as a tea to comfort the heart. Astrologically associated with the sun and the fire element, calendula was believed to imbue magical powers of protection and clairvoyance and even to assist in legal matters. Flowers strung above doorposts were said to keep evil out and to protect one while sleeping if put under the bed.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine calendula (called jin zhan ju) is considered energetically neutral and drying and is used to support healthy skin. Traditionally in North American indigenous cultures it has been employed as an herbal tea to combat the occasional upset stomach.
Precautions for calendula:
Persons with allergies to other members of the Asteraceae family (such as feverfew, chamomile or Echinacea species) should exercise caution with calendula, as allergic cross-reactivity to Asteraceae plants is common. We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing or on any medications.
Organic Lemon Balm: Used since ancient times to calm the heart and the body and to uplift the spirits. Ayurvedic medicine uses lemon balm to calm the stomach and balance mood.
Precautions for lemon balm:
No known precautions. We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using herbal tea products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.
