~Our Story~

Jo Arbon  |  Clair Kelly

The Busy Botanist was set up in 2017.


We are best friends, master herbalists and busy people! We are passionate about healthy options through easy choices. Our mission is to provide a convenient, straight talking range of herbal drinks to support a healthy lifestyle.


Our inspiration for the range came from realising that most people don’t have the time or the inclination to figure out the health benefits of herbal teas, and the ones currently on the shelves were often disappointing. We found that almost all brands contained green or black tea, fillers, added sugars, flavourings, colourings and preservatives; not so healthy after all – and most importantly, they didn’t tell you how they supported a healthy lifestyle.


Locally produced in Kerry, our tailored blends of herbs support specific every day health & well being needs. We carefully select and hand blend our mixes, using only high quality and high performance organic herbs with nothing else added to bring a great taste sensation that is gentle yet effective.


Our Company was borne out of an identified need from consumers wanting to use herbs, but not clear about what health benefits they provided, and how best to use them.


Our solution is to manufacture products which are:


  • 100% naturally Caffeine Free.

  • 100% Herbs designed to support everyday health and well being... they are Tea Free.#thenoteatea

  • Smooth, "Easy to Drink" and are Tannin Free with no bitter aftertaste.

  • A Ready made Solution in an "Easy to Use", everyday format.

  • Each infusion bag can be used at least Three Times (30% more leaves than competitor products)

  • Made with Certified Organic Ingredients.

  • Contain no Additives, Flavours, Preservatives, or Sweeteners.

  • Compostable infusion bags, a smart choice for the Environment.

  • High quality for an everyday price.


We hope you love the simplicity, honesty and taste.

Life choices made pure & simple.
