It’s an understatement to say that we really love tea. We drink more tea in our household than all other beverages combined. Green tea, hibiscus tea, and fennel tea are some of our regulars, but this post is about 3 new (to me) teas that I’ve started incorporating into my daily routine over the last few weeks. We’re partnering with Traditional Medicinals on this post because their teas are so wonderful.
My obsession with Traditional Medicinals started years ago. I was feeling under the weather and my throat needed some support. My mom told me “you have to try this tea that I just read about.” I couldn’t imagine that a tea would help, but I always listen to my mom’s health advice, and I’m happy to say that I felt much better! Since then, I’ve told every single friend to go out and get Throat Coat®… and that was just the beginning. Now, I love their wide range of organically sourced, medicinal-grade teas, including many with soothing, restorative benefits. For the past three weeks, I’ve been enjoying these three daily:
Morning (Tea #1): Roasted Dandelion Root
This slightly bitter tea reminds me of some of the teas that we enjoyed with breakfast in Japan. The deep roasty flavor inspired me to start making brown rice breakfast nori bowls – the whole grains, vegetables, and earthy tea make me feel like I’m getting my day off to a healthy start.
Herbal Power: Stimulates digestion and supports the body’s natural detoxification process.*
Tasting Notes: Earthy, with pleasantly roasted bitter notes.
Lunch: (Tea #2) Peppermint
I work from home, so I usually put together a pretty simple lunch like avocado toast with lots of lemon, sea salt, and sprouts. These bright flavors pair well with this bright-tasting tea, especially during these not-so-bright winter days.
Herbal Power: Rich in essential oils, this tea has soothing digestive benefits.*
Tasting Notes: Aromatic and undeniably minty.
3pm Snack: (Tea #3) Turmeric with Meadowsweet & Ginger
Admittedly, 3pm is often the hour when I reach for a coffee and a cookie. But, when I started drinking this turmeric tea at that time, a surprising thing happened – I didn’t need anything else to go with it! This tea has some wonderful benefits, such as supporting a healthy response to inflammation from a workout, but I personally really love it because it just tastes so good.*
Herbal Power: Supports a healthy response to inflammation after a workout.*
Tasting Notes: Warming, earthy and savory with a hint of spice.
