A Few Favorite Tea Recipes

Updated: Mar 3, 2021

Whether I need a pick me up, enjoying some downtime, or need to take a minute to just breathe, I make a cup of tea. Between my passion for herbology and drive to understand how mother nature and our bodies are connected, I find myself creating new recipes or looking for new uses for my favorite herbs.


Here are three of my favorite recipes that can all be enjoyed hot or cold. The best part? You can save all these ingredients to use a second time before throwing them out!

Enjoy!

Ginger & Lemon Tea

I enjoy a cup of Ginger Lemon tea every morning with breakfast as part of my daily routine.

Beyond those few benefits, it also helps with a huge variety of other things.
