St Ives firm Woof and Brew launch herbal tea range – for dogs,” noted that the thought behind the idea is that the drinks contain antioxidants, vitamins and minerals designed to keep pets in the peak of health. Woof and Brew was set up by Steve Bennett, whose job title is sales dog, Lisa Morton, whose title is brand bitch, and Nick Gandon and Tony Kinch.

Following on from this, Yourwellness Magazine told readers about herbal teas that might improve their skin. According to Yourwellness Magazine, ‘Herbal tea has long been associated with a healthy diet, thanks to the lack of sugar and the belief that herbal remedies are good for us. With winter fast approaching, we’re suddenly looking for ways to overcome the drying indoor heating and lack of exercise (and the associated lack of water intake) that makes us dehydrated. It’s worth the effort to stay hydrated though, as your body needs water far more than you realise. Not only does drinking enough keep your skin plump and healthy, it also helps your body to fight illnesses and viruses which are prevalent in the winter months.’ (http://www.yourwellness.com/2013/12/herbal-teas-benefit-skin/#sthash.MASvmx6T.dpuf)
