Herbal tea is the super hero of the drink world. It seems there are few things herbal tea cannot remedy. Herbal tea can help everything from sleep to inflammation to digestion. Whether you choose to start or end your day with it, we highly recommend incorporating herbal tea into your daily routine.
This week’s #bebetter52 challenge is to fill up your cup with herbal tea. A loose definition of tea is a hot drink made by infusing natural ingredients such as dried leaves, roots, flowers, fruits, spices, bark and more. Try replacing your morning cup of coffee with herbal tea or drinking a cup to help you relax at the end of the day. Best benefits come from steeping loose tea as long as 10-15 minutes and using high quality ingredients.
Herbal tea is typically caffeine free, though there are exceptions, which make its benefits perfect for any time of the day. Take a moment to embrace the calming feeling of a hot mug in your hands and appreciate the sweet smells of the steam. Pick a tea like Chamomile to really embrace the calm.
While there are seemingly endless varieties of herbal teas, our current favorite is Bluephoria, found in this month’s subscription box. This entirely organic loose-leaf tea is ideal for summer – and with its blue tint even the kids will get a kick out of it. This minty, blue herbal tea is the perfect pick me up and is ideal in the morning or for that afternoon lull. Bluephoria is packed with antioxidants and is a great mood booster.
For a little added fun, stir in an acid (like lemon juice) and watch Bluephoria transform into a purple and pink color!
Pick out your favorite herbal tea, grab a mug, and embrace the healing powers of herbal teas!
