Loose leaf tea, The Art of Tea
Your choice of one of these three amazing teas:
French Early Grey: If you haven’t tried this, then you should! Seriously, it’s a tea goddess’ in a cup. Rose, sunflowers & hibiscus with the bergamot flavoured black tea makes this a heaven-sent brew.
Vanilla Rooibos: Love vanilla? Need a caffeine-free option at night? This blend of rooibos with vanilla bean is smooth, sensuous, and perfect to enjoy all day long, with or without milk! Also makes a great iced tea. Ideal to enjoy when pregnant or breastfeeding, as it is free of caffeine and rich in antioxidants and minerals.
Mary Grey: Mary Elizabeth Grey was famously the wife of Charles Grey, the second Earl Grey after whom the now-famous tea was named. A distinctly elegant twist on a classic, our Mary Grey is a delightfully lighter blend of the finest Chinese black tea scattered with delicate blue cornflower petals and exquisitely fragrant bergamot citrus. Subtle flavours gracefully ascend the palate and delight the senses. Enjoy a cup laced with pure, refined luxury.

“What a great read! This book not only explains burnout well, it also comes with practical tips that can easily be implemented to help the reader. The section on values was excellent – something we often lose touch with as we get distracted by our daily tasks!”
— Dr Yumiko Kadota, ex-Plastic Surgery registrar
“Written with empathy, compassion and understanding, this easy to read guidebook contains practical strategies that inspire hope. I couldn’t put it down!”
— Dr Bambi Ward, medical doctor, PhD creative writing, mother
“This book is a fantastic resource. I wish I had read it during my internship.”
— Dr Anna Elliston, mother, TAS
“Burnout, your first 10 steps is just what it says – an accessible, doable guide that helps stressed people figure out why they feel the way they do, understand that there’s hope to feel better, and bring about change to their day-to-day lives and relationships in a lasting way – a must read for self-care!”
— Rose Jones, Registered Counsellor, VIC
“A practical and pragmatic approach to tackling a problem we usually are reluctant to acknowledge or address. Thank you for trying to move away from the ‘why me/how’ to the ‘what do I do about it’ of burnout.”
— Dr Srishti Dutta
“As a GP, I see many patients at varying stages of burnout, from people who just don’t understand why there’s no findable physical cause for their tiredness, to people in the middle of a full-blown breakdown. I feel that burnout is the modern epidemic, born of our increasingly hectic lifestyles, where everything needs to be instant, and technology keeps us switched on at all hours. This book is an easy to read guide to recognising symptoms of burnout and starting to plan the road to recovery. This is a handy reference for those experiencing their own burnout, or for those seeking to aid their friends. As an individual currently juggling busy work hours, a toddler and a sick family member, I don’t mind admitting that I can recognise aspects of my own life mirrored in this book, and took away some useful approaches for assessing and planning my time.”
— Dr Sarah Tedjasukmana, GP and mother, NSW
“In reading this book by Dr Imms I realised the vital difference between simple time off and actual constructive time off. ‘How would your life look if you could manage burnout well?’ was a game changer for me. Addressing burnout using strategy and activities gave me far better insight, and the values chapter in particular gave me an understanding of my future pathway within medicine. Looking at the lifestyle I had during those early years of medicine, I realised that life was not meant to just happen in stolen moments. Addressing burnout directly and with purpose has been empowering, and undertaking the steps in this book has been pivotal for recovery.”
— Dr Niki Springett, medical registrar
“Not just a book but a valuable tool for readers, coaches and counsellors alike.”
— Dr Anthony Llewellyn, Doctor Coach
“Dr. Amy Imms has a brilliant understanding of what burnout feels like in the real world and unfailingly holds your hand as she leads you toward recovery.”
— Courtney Sharman, Masters Public Health, mother, TAS
