Make sure you’re only drinking certified organic herbal tea. Organic will allow the nutrients of tea to enter your body unaltered, without the side-effects of pesticides working against its cleansing properties.
Toxins from pesticides sprayed on nonorganic teas detract from the healing and cleansing properties of the teas that have been used for throughout history. Human pesticide consumption has been linked to short-term health issues such as headaches and nausea, and in some cases to more serious conditions of infertility, endocrine disruptions and even cancer. The only way to ensure you’re not exposing yourself is to drink only organic ☺
☺ Organic tea farms use compost, plants and organic matter to provide essential ground cover and fill the soil with nutrients to allow sustainable, fertile land for many harvests to come. This natural soil brings the organic tea plants to life; rich with minerals, amino acids and vitamins. Organic herbal tea is literally the world’s healthiest vitamin water, with varieties such as green tea, chamomile and yerba mate containing antioxidants that can help reduce inflammation, combat cell damage and have been linked to reducing the risk of cancer and diabetes.
When making tea use loose leaf and always cover the cup so that the volatile oils don’t evaporate.
Flavour- strong in flavour
The best way to serve it- hot or cold, I prefer to have all my teas without additives, however black tea is usually served with milk. For a healthier alternative use rice milk and honey. The rice milk doesn’t curdle and the honey brings in sweetness to its strong taste.
Health benefits- is full of polyphenols and catechins that are antioxidants that protect DNA cell damage.
Best time of day to drink it- I would suggest breakfast or lunch as it has caffeine and can be uplifting. If you have low iron preferably not to drink it at the same time as when you are have a meal as the tannins can hinder the absorption of iron.
