Immune system booster tea:
Holy Basil is considered an adaptogenic herb and has pharmacological properties to help your mind cope with many types of stress. Mint is known for its many digestive benefits. Rosehips are very rich in vitamin C. The Australia lemon myrtle has a high concentration of citral and is rich in antioxidants, anti-bacterial, and anti-inflammatory properties.
Linden blossoms contain the powerful antioxidants call flavonoids to naturalize free radicals and is native to Europe. Traditionally, the flowers have been used to treat flu, cough, migraine, nervous tension, ingestion, various types of spasms, liver and gall bladder disorders, diarrhea, and elevated arterial pressure associated with arteriosclerosis.
All of these herbs have properties to help boost your immune system. A healthy immune system helps our bodies to fight off illness.
This is caffeine free. Having several cups of herbal tea a day is a way to add nutrition but also helps you to slow down and focus on taking a short break.
The flavor is mild and the mint is not overpowering. We suggest sweetening with our ground Stevia powder (just dried stevia leaves ground up) or our Cinnamon infused honey. Many of us are enjoying this tea daily. We would like for you to join us in our tea breaks.
About Infused Cinnamon Honey:
Our Infused Cinnamon Honey has the the premium cinnamon from Sri Lanka called Ceylon Cinnamon. The flavor of this cinnamon is a mild warm spice. It is not hot like the Cassia Cinnamon which is what most of us think of as cinnamon. We enjoy this cinnamon in baking, cooking and in our Greek Seasoning recipe blend.
Studies have shown that Ceylon Cinnamon brings down insulin levels. Ceylon cinnamon contains anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antimicrobial effects. These properties mean Ceylon cinnamon supports your immune health.
Raw Honey has antioxidants, anti-bacterial and antifungal properties. The combination presents a lovely indulgent flavor that may be beneficial. We use this to sweeten our tea, as a glaze on meats (pork especially), in our oatmeal, yogurts, on our squash and sweet potato’s. Don’t think this is just for tea. It is a pantry staple to help make your cooking creative in an easy way.
Remember, all honey is sugar, natural but still sugar.
Be sure to talk to your doctor anytime you change up your nutritional habits.
