I LOVE herb tea and drink it daily! In our kitchen we have a cupboard that is the "Tea Cupboard". It contains: mugs, tea pots, herbal tea blends, hot cocoa, candied ginger, liquid stevia and a variety of small strainers.
Herb teas not only taste great, they are filled with readily available nutrients. The aroma of the tea, like essential oils, lifts the spirits. The physical action of making tea, calms and helps me to have a "pause" in my life. Making tea is a form of self care that can reduce your stress.
Here are a few of my favorites:
From - Mountain Rose Herbs
Evening Repose This is my "go-to" when we've got a bug.
Flash Tea For those hot flashes
Mint Chocolate Mate My favorite with a little stevia and milk. Yummy!
Firefly Chai I love Chai, especially with stevia and milk or for a treat cream.
Around Christmas I went on a tea buying spree at Fred Meyers. I love all of these.
Traditional Medicinal Tea are now in grocery stores. They are formulated by Rosemary Gladstar. They are perfect for getting over colds, flu and other things. My daughter loves Throat Coat.
You can make your own tea blends. They are easy and to do. Tea Blending is art, not science. Blending the herbs together is a healing experience in itself.
These are some of my blends:
All of these teas not only look great, but are easy to blend.
