Tea is a subtle way of receiving nature’s best medicine. Herbal infusions extract medicinal ingredients through the heat of water. Just the warmth of botanically inspired water helps to melt stress, while sitting to enjoy a cup of tea promotes mindfulness. This holiday season, consider taking some time once or twice per day to enjoy this mood & digestion balancing blend.
You can find most of these ingredients through your local herbal shop. If you live in Toronto, Herbies Herbs is one of the best locations for bulk herbal medicines.
