Many of us already cherish our daily cup of tea and since this is such a traditional thing in so many countries all over the world, we often stick with just one kind.
We usually have our favorite herbs or berries for teas, some for hot tea in winter, some for iced tea in summer, and rarely strive off the well trodden paths of our taste buds. Well, it might be time for a change…..
Sure, we already use all kinds teas for different ailments and therefore oftentimes buy a variety ready mixed teas that can help us with whatever comes up, be it an upset tummy or a threatening cold.
Practical: Readily mixed tea!
While these are a wonderful thing to have, especially during busy weekdays, we can take a step back when there is more time and take the time to steep our own teas, that we can tailor just as we like them.
Enjoyable: Creating our own individual tea!
Especially with using fresh or dried herbs for deliciour tea infusions, this is an experience, that brings us to mind how much those little plants out there have the strength to be real helpers in keeping us strong and healthy.
In our TEA TIME we will present one herb at a time, some well known, others maybe less known, with a bit about its history and traditional usage, that make wonderful teas.
And our first herb is the Stinging Nettle! 🙂
