Herbal Tea Blends
In a time where speed and efficiency are valued so much, the simple virtue of a cup of tea to warm and heal body and soul is frequently undervalued. Preparing a cup of tea mindfully enables us to take an active role in the process of preparing our food and medicines. Medicinal teas are generally not as potent as tinctures, and therefore may not be as effective for acute situations. But they are very effective in the long run for disease prevention and for chronic problems.
To prepare: use 1 teaspoon of dried herb per 1 cup of water. Place the herbs in a cup or tea kettle with a tight fitting lid and pour boiling water over them. Let the tea steep for 10-20 minutes. You want to cover the tea while steeping to prevent all the goodies of the plant from evaporating with the steam. Whether you decide to use your tea time as a meditation time or as a celebration with friends, we hope you enjoy your tea.
All the herbs used in our teas are grown by us. Our farm is a small family farm that do not warehouse large quantities of tea. Beacuse, our teas are very popular they are often sold out in early winter. We encourage you to buy our teas during the growing season and in early winter.
