Finding the Tea That's Right for You

It’s important to stay in touch with your mind and body. Checking in occasionally is healthy, and allows you to move forward in life as your best self. Tea has been used for thousands of years to soothe the mind and body, increase energy and focus, and more. Be conscious about which teas you choose to enter your life. What’s great about tea is you can take it anywhere, make it as strong as you’d like, try endless flavors, and combine different teas and herbs!

 

Personally, I have never liked coffee. I’ve never enjoyed the taste and I don’t do very well with caffeine. Almost my whole family can’t get through a day without it. I always just drank water whenever we went out to eat. I discovered tea my senior year of high school, and ever since, I haven’t been able to give it up! The comfort and warmth of a cup of tea is all I need to not just get through a day, but to savor and appreciate a day.

 

I don’t know about you, but my body is super sensitive. I think it has it out for me. My body even has reactions to common medicines. Tea has helped so much with all of my issues; body and mind. It’s a natural remedy that flows with my body, rather than interrupting its processes. I know that if I have a stomach ache, I need a tea with a nice kick of ginger. A sore throat can only be solved with some licorice root or Cold Eliminator from the Spice Hut. Even if I’m just having trouble sleeping, I just whip up a cup if Chamomile Dreams and get back to bed.
