Tis the Season For Some Herbal Teas!

Tis the season to indulge in herbal teas! Now that cold winter is upon us, why not treat yourself to some special teas to improve your mind body and spirit? For those of us in the warm climates, we can still go outside and pick fresh herbs for our teas. For those of you up north who harvested herbs from your garden and dried or froze them, you can utilize them. Head to the local grocery or specialty store and treat yourself to a few boxes of specialty teas. This will surely add to the holiday season, and save you some cash as well. A box of 20 teabags is less money than a prepared cup of coffee at one of the popular storefront chains.
This time of year with all the over eating and indigestion, make some mint tea. It settles the stomach and tastes great. Many restaurants give mints at the check out counter for this very reason. If you get indigestion after eating there, would you come back? The mints prevent this from happening. Feeling a bit anxious or having trouble sleeping ? Grab some chamomile tea. It’s a wonderful way to relax and is a popular calming tea. One brand even touts it's Sleepy Time tea. (The main ingredient is chamomile.) On the shelves are also some holiday teas, with cinnamon, cloves and orange flavor. These teas are a refreshing change and gets one in the spirit of the season. Enjoy your new selections of tea and tickle your taste buds .
