Sweet Bee Herbal Tea
*This is a limited edition Summer tea. We only have a small amount available.
We've been taking all our first cuttings of the plants and putting them happily into a tea that can support sweet relief from all the heat and humidity. My afternoon cuppa (add a little green tea if you'd like) is a little iced and just gets me through that moment of Zen and helps me get the work done. Plus all those nutrients to keep your cells happy.
Directions for Use: In a teapot or tea infuser add 2 tablespoons of mix. Pour 6 ounces almost boiling water over the mix and let steep 5-15 minutes. This tea is also one you can refresh with a little more tea and a rebrew. For Sun Tea: Place 3-4 tablespoons of tea into a quart jar and let steep in the sun for 3-6 hours. Strain, add sweetener if you'd like, and sip over ice.
Herbal Teas: Hot water is used as the method to extract the medicinal constituents from herbs, which is actually one of the most effective ways to extract the most health-boosting properties from certain herbs.
Medicinal Uses: Do not underestimate the healing power of herbal tea! Tea infusions (when herbs are left to steep in hot water for 8-12 hours in a covered container) are used in healing protocols as well as for maintaining wellness for adults and children.
Culinary Uses: Herbal teas can be consumed hot or iced, and if they consist of herbs (versus tea leaves like black or green tea), herbal tea counts as water! Use herbal as a base for creative cocktails, as the liquid in your smoothies, and even as a soup base.
