Key Features

  • Lightly stimulating
  • Supports men's health
  • Cognitive enhancing 
  • Earthy flavour

XY Blend is masculine in nature. It's made for dudes — or for dudettes who want to get their dude on, but primarily for those carrying XY chromosomes. XY is a special blend of herbs formulated by Medera Apothecary for men's health.


As tulsi is the base for this tea, the baseline flavour is sweet earthiness. To add to the sweetness is licorice. Saffron brings the entire formula to live with its potent floral aroma and sage breaks through as a grounding aromatic.


XY Blend is lightly stimulating and is therefore best enjoyed as a morning or afternoon supplement. It's highly aromatic and heating and has energizing effects.


XY Blend can be used as a daily delicious supplement for men's health. Tulsi is an Ayurvedic libido enhancer while the scientific evidence for the use of saffron for men's health continues to increase. Sage has cognitive enhancing effects and licorice, delicious and warming. It's the perfect healthy beverage to drink between meals.


XY Blend was made for men looking to nourish their masculine health with a perfect mid-morning cup of tea. With that said, these herbs can safely be used by women who also love a delicious cup of tea. Licorice root may increase blood pressure, and so this tea is best avoided by those with high blood pressure. The herbs in XY are otherwise well tolerated by people of all ages. However, please check the ingredient list for known allergies.


Best consumed in the mornings or afternoons, as tulsi is energetically stimulating.


To make, pour 150ml boiling water over 1-2 tablespoons of dried herb. Allow to steep for at least 5 minutes to extract the bioactive compounds. Strain and consume.

  • Glycyrrhiza glabra (Licorice) root
  • Salvia officinalis (Sage) leaves
  • Crocus sativus (Saffron) threads
  • Ocimum sanctum (Tulsi/Holy Basil) aerial parts

All ingredients are 100% traceable and unadulterated. Medera aims to manufacture products with ingredients and supplies from Australia. However, some herbs are not grown locally or are not grown to organic standards. Therefore, Medera sometimes uses herbs of non-Australian origin. Medera is 100% transparent about the sourcing of each and every ingredient in each and every product.

Glycyrrhiza glabra (licorice) is grown in VIC and NSW, Australia and is Australian certified organic.

Salvia officinalis (sage) is grown in VIC and NSW, Australia and is Australian certified organic.

Crocus sativus (saffron) is grown in Iran, is tested by a third party for purity and is sourced from an Australian supplier.

Ocimum sanctum (Tulsi/Holy Basil) is grown in India, is India certified organic and is sourced from an Australian supplier.

Medera's biophotonic glass jars are made in Switzerland and are sourced from an Australian supplier.

One of the beautiful things about shopping for botanical products at Medera is that you can do a beautiful thing for the world and the environment.

Medera's product comes to you with absolutely zero plastic. Every last detail of Medera's packaging is plastic-free:

  • Biophotonic glass jars
  • Compostable bubble mailers
  • Cardboard shipping boxes
  • Greenwrap or biodegradable bubble wrap
  • Compostable sticky tape

Medera makes a huge effort to purchase from suppliers that also boycott plastic so that Medera doesn't produce a lot of waste making products for its customers.

Medera chose biophotonic glass jars for its packaging because of its unique ability to block UV light. UV light degrades compounds in botanical materials, especially aromatic ones. Oils are also prone to rancidity after exposure to UV light. Biophotonic glass jars mean that your jar of tea or body oil can sit right on the bench without being compromised by light (such as what happens with amber bottles). They should be reused when you've finished indulging in their insides because they're high quality glassware.

All compostable packaging products can be composted at home. Simply use them the exact same way you would compost your green waste, and they will break down into organic biomass. The Greenwrap can be recycled like any other cardboard.

We think about every step in the manufacture process and try to innovate a new way of doing things at every step of the way. We know that every part of the manufacture process has a footprint including transport, packaging and delivery. We aim to reduce that footprint in every way possible — and we're always excited to tell you how we did it.
