Ever since I was small I was used to have a cup of tea in the morning and one in the evening.
We somehow always had some kind of tea in the cupboard because we lived near a forest and there were lots of medicinal plants you could find and my mom used to pick them up, dry them out and make tea for various ailments.
We had rosehip, mint, camomile and some bitter plants I never tried to taste.
These are still among my favourite teas, I only added artichoke leaf tea (quite bitter) to help out my little friend, the liver, green tea to hopefully help my blood circulation and ginger tea to fight whatever life throws at me.
There are so many things we can prevent and heal by drinking tea, especially if you live or work in a stressful environment. It should be part of the taking care of yourself process. You know…like chocolate…and wine…and massage.
Find whatever tea you feel your body needs, learn all about it and start drinking and enjoying it’s effects. If nothing else, you’ll be hydrated.
My suggestion is to look for the tea that you prepare yourself, the dried leaves, instead of the tea bags. You’ll learn to love the process.
