Why this format?
Tea is the second most popular drink in the world, after water. For centuries now, sitting down with a cup of tea and sipping it slowly has been known to clear our minds. At Ausum, we make functional teas that play a much bigger role in your healthy diet and help you go stress-free.
Functional teas are not always truly "tea". They are combinations of natural ingredients with superfoods that help the body manage lifestyle issues effectively. The Ausum Collection offers a range of untraditional, vibrant green tea leaves, herbal, spiced, fruity and floral concoctions.
Sip on, stress off. It’s that simple.
Teabag with a Tale
Two of the most popular materials used to create tea bags are nylon and paper.
Nylon is non-biodegradable and takes an average of 30 to 40 years to decompose. When exposed to hot water, can release chemicals that are toxic in nature. Each nylon teabag releases 11.6 bn microplastics in a single tea cup (source: BBC).
Paper teabags are treated with Epichlorohydrin, a chemical that’s also commonly used as a pesticide. Just like synthetics release toxins when in contact with boiling water, so does chemically treated paper.
Made with non-plastic, plant-based corn starch, Ausum teabags are 100% biodegradable. Unlike nylon or paper, no micro-plastics steep into your tea. The bag decomposes within 3-6 months, with no trace!
- Fill your cup with 200- 250 ml of hot water.
- Add teabag and steep for 4-5 minutes.
- Enjoy at any time of the day.
In addition to the calming effects of functional teas, the physical warmth provided by the hot beverage has an emotional appeal. Watching the colours unfurl into the cup and taking in the gentle aroma most certainly has an element of calmness involved.

What is 'clinically validated'?
Clinical validation is the process of testing a product's efficiency to meet clinical standards. The proprietary extract used in the Ausum Super Tea range is clinically tested with CIMED Labs and tested with volunteers who struggle with anxiety. After 6 weeks, the perceived stress scale of the participants was found to be 20% lower.
What are adaptogens?
Adaptogens are natural compounds that help the body utilize energy optimally to avoid early fatigue. It’s important to note, however, that they’re not a cure, but help our body build resilience for the long term. They need to be consumed consistently and need to be paired with a healthy lifestyle to reap maximum benefits.
Are there any side effects?
Made from 100% real, natural ingredients, this herbal blend has no side effects upon regular consumption. It’s caffeine-free, sugar-free, chemical-free and preservative-free.
