Archives: Tea

travel mug

Recently I’ve put a great deal of emphasis on my morning routine since it’s the only real time I have to do what I want and need to do. Every morning I eat breakfast and relax a bit before the start of my long day but I figured out that I need something more to keep me focused and happy throughout the morning. I began to realize that all I wanted during class was a nice hot cup of tea. SO I started a new ritual of boiling the water in the morning and bringing the tea with me! It sounds sort of silly but tea really makes me happy. Now I have the ability to bring the wonderful, comforting, soothing herbal remedy with me to class.

I bought a fantastic travel mug that does NOT spill at all. It’s really special and I recommend it for all you tea/coffee drinkers who want to bring your special comfort with you without the spillage (which I’m sure we all know about!)

I don’t exactly know what my obsession is with tea – but I do know that it makes me feel warm on the inside and I like the comfort it brings me. If you don’t have this fond liking for tea then I hope you have the feeling towards something else.

We all know it’s the small things in life that make us happy.

Even if it is just a simple cup of tea, if it makes your day just a tiny bit better, it’s worth it!

I hope you can find that one tiny bit of happiness to brighten your day – we all need it sometimes.

If you like to drink tea and this summer you’ve found yourself spending your hard earned cash on iced tea– then I have a great solution for you.

Find your nearest health food store that sells loose herbs and make it yourself!

I recently did this and have been so happy to have my refreshing tea throughout the day that I made myself!

You need to have a tea steeper that you can stick in hot water. Bodum makes a great tea pot steeper that I will link here

I used lavender, chamomile, and lemongrass for my tea but the choices are completely up to you and your taste buds.

There are MANY herbs to choose from

All you have to do is boil hot water, then put three scoops of each herb into the steeper and then pour the hot water over the herbs and let it sit for a good 10 minutes or longer. Once that’s done let it cool down and then you can drink a cup and put the rest in the fridge for your iced tea. I didn’t add any sweetener but you can add agave nectar or even honey. Try it without any sweetener and taste the true flavors of the herbs. It feels so refreshing and calms me down.

Stay cool.
