My Go To Teas

 
DAILY Health Staple

Is there anything better than slowing down for a few minutes with a warm mug in your hands, sipping on a delicious cup of tea? My answer…NO!~

I can’t go a day without at least 1-2 cups of tea. It has become my personal health ritual, a concept taught to me by my dear friend Shannon{life & business coach}. It creates a mental space that allows me to slow down, appreciate the moment I’m in and I’ve been able to attach it to gratitude. As I take my first sips I always think to myself: I’m so grateful for the benefits of this cup, I’m grateful for the body it’s supporting and grateful for the NOW.

Tea has been dated back to 2737 BC, for centuries cultures used tea as medicine, only after 3 000 years was it developed into an every day drink. Something that’s been consumed for that long has to be beneficial for our health, don’t let it go over looked in your every day routine.
Did you know…

  • Green, white, black and oolong all come from the same plant called Camellia SinensisWhat creates the different types and flavours is the drying and processing of the leaves.
  • Don’t like tea? Perhaps you haven’t tried enough varieties, in fact it’s estimated there is over 1,500 different types.{ there has to be 1 out of 1,5o0 you enjoy 😉 }
  • The reason I find tea so calming is because IT IS. It directly effects your nervous system and eases breathing, which is why it’s used before meditation.
  • Tea should be the only thing you sip on while you eat. It won’t effect your stomach acid or cause a lack of digestive fire.
  • Tea can be used as a daily detoxification for the body, especially the liver and bowls.
