Everyone knows that chamomile tea is the answer to a good night's sleep, that lemon tea is an invigorating way to start your morning and that ginger tea can settle your stomach. But did you know that Jamu Kunyit, a ginger and turmeric tonic, is the Balinese equivalent of `an apple a day' to `keep health problems at bay'; that herbal medicinal vinegars can be antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral as well as helping fight respiratory infections, coughs and bronchitis; or that adding black pepper and coconut oil to any turmeric drink can help your body reap the benefits more effectively? Rachel de Thample has gathered a collection of the best of these ancient drinks and traditional remedies, along with a few modern spins, offering tips on how to best build them into a busy lifestyle. Organised into three chapters, she covers Tonics such as Dairy Keifr, Beet Kvass, Nettle Tonic and Ginger Shots; Teas such as Grasshopper Tea, Spice Route Tea, Armenian Herbal Tea and Afghan Pin Chai, plus delicious and beneficial Drinks such as Elderflower Cordial, Amazake and Kombucha. This eclectic mix of natural brews is the perfect way to give your body a healthy boost.

A market stall followed and when the stall couldn't quell the tide of treasure, Angel moved to a big converted school house in Bethnal Green. It was here in 2001 that the launch of 'The Vintage Experience' took place, where Angel opened her doors to her devotees and revealed rail upon rail of vintage delights, and offered advice and hand-picked gems that were just right for her clients - as well as providing them with delicious cakes! The Vintage Experience lasted for seven years and when this brand could grow no more, the Vintage Patisserie was born! Angel's business has grown from strength to strength and this year saw the opening for her new East London event space, Vintage Hair Academy and Vintage Hospitality school.Angel's first book The Vintage Tea Party Book was shortlisted for the Galaxy National Book Awards 2011 for Food Book of the Year.
