Sweet Herbal Tea Recipe

The easiest way for me to make my tea every morning and night is in a mason jar. I am constantly on the go and I have made it a habit to always bring tea and water with me. Thermoses always keep the tea hot for way to long. Mason jars take about 30 minutes to cool down enough to bring with me and it is the most perfect hand warmer ever! Mason jars also allow me to make larger batches so the tea lasts me longer.

I am always drinking different herbal teas and I have yet to get sick this winter, and I don’t plan on it. Different herbs, barks, berries, etc have so many benefits that if you are consistently rotating and drinking a variety of herbs you are more than likely going to be in great health!

In the pictures I had used senna leaf in place of raspberry leaves, I like to switch it up from time to time. Senna is known for being  potent diuretic. If you tend to overeat or eat a lot of processed foods, senna leaf along with all the other herbs will help you “clear out” by morning. I use raspberry leaf around menstruation time as it helps sooth cramps and balances hormones. 

Where to Buy Ingredients

Mountain Rose Herbs has an extensive variety of organic herbs, spices, and teas. I recommend these guys whole heartedly. Frontier is the other major brand that supplies most local herb shops. I have found these herbs at my local health market Dawson’s Market as well as Smile Herb at 4908 Berwyn rd. College Park, MD 20740

 Recommended Tea Tools

I learned something new while doing my tea tool research. Ball and Kerr lids both have BPA, Tattler’s lid and rings however do not. Tattler’s “reusable” lids and rings also guarantees to last a lifetime, while the other lids rust easily and need to be replaced often.
