Let me start off by saying I am a coffee lover. It is part of my morning ritual. The aroma fills the house and gets me going. I love that first sip. BUT as fall approaches I think about cocooning in the evening with a cup of hot tea. Through the dark winter months there is nothing more soothing, warming and nourishing to my soul than a cup of herbal tea. Of course herbal teas are so much more than that. I will discuss different herbs and there healing properties in future posts. Last fall I started experimenting with different blends. My husband who has never been a tea drinker accepted a cup one evening of my Night Repose blend that I created using Chamomile, California Poppy, Oatstraw, Skullcap and with a touch of Rooibos. He told me the next morning it was the best nights sleep he had in a long time.
We also love to drink a chai spice with astragalus, cocoa and turmeric. Not only is it delicious, it is a great for your immune system. So I am now making my Night Repose tea blend and Chai Spice available at my studio. I will be adding other tea blends in the very near future and don't forget my elderberry syrup kit to fight cold and flu.
So make yourself a nice cup of tea, sit back and relax!
