Dear tea lovers,
As promised, today we will talk about teas that can assist us with our spring cleansing.
Teas in general, and my herbal infusions particularly, are created to help with cleansing, each in their own special way.
Infinitea, the 'gingery' one, powerful ginger blended with elderberry, lemon peel, sage and other wonders, is perfect for this time of year. Elderberry is great for our immune system and can help in balancing it especially during allergies. Don't we all love our spring allergies.. Ginger is great for the liver as it helps cleansing and detoxifying processes in our body.
Lemon is great for the liver too. According to Chinese medicine, Tart/Sour is the taste of spring, good for the liver and the stomach. It has the ability to balance the acid our body produces to digest. I always say that a cup of water with juice squeezed from half fresh lemon in the morning is the best way to start the day, gives a 'good morning kiss' to the liver. Make this a morning ritual with a cup of tea. What a wonderful way to start the day!
Another great spring infusion is Activitea. Refreshing and joyful, a blend of Lemongrass, hibiscus with a minty finish, great for digestion and refreshment. Lemongrass contains a great cleansing force for the liver, kidneys, and bladder. Hibiscus, the color and heart of this blend, is great for our blood system. And mint, aids in digestion, making it easier on us with our cleansing. This blend is also wonderful for a hot summer afternoon as it refreshes our body without caffeine.
Another beautiful blend that is great for cleansing is 'Femininitea', but hey, don't let the name mislead you. This blend is great for men as well as it contains nettle. Nettle is a great cleanser that contains iron and is one of the most nourishing herbs with plenty of minerals, the wonderful ginger, chamomile that is great for relaxation, mint that is soothing and relaxing our digestive system. Remember that our digestive system is the main aid when it comes to cleansing and detoxifying.
What about green tea you may ask?! Green tea has lots of antioxidants that can help in cleansing, detoxification and rejuvenate the body. So for all you green tea lovers, keep that on your menu!
I strongly recommend trying Activitea, Infinitea and Femininitea iced.
Well, my friends, enjoy the season, drink tea and celebrate your body.
