A wonderfully refreshing herbal tea that tastes good hot or cold
This caffeine-free herbal blend is the perfect mix to keep you relaxed and focused. Herb teas are full of natural ingredients which are very tasty and refreshing. What's even better is that they are also good for you. Not only are they a tasty way to increase the water you consume but they carry a multitude of other benefits.
Chamomile is well known for its calming and relaxing properties that can promote good sleep and reduce anxiety but this is just the start of this blend. Chamomile is also used to naturally aid: Bloat, digestion, menstrual cramps, IBS, gastritis and ulcerative colitis. It is also known for its antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antifungal properties. Almost a wonder plant in its own right, but blended with ingredients like fennel, cinnamon and ginger and you have a cuppa that smells great, tastes amazing and does you good.
Milk not recommended as it will curdle due to the ingredients in this blend.
Try brewing the mix for a second time.
Try adding a little honey to sweeten the tea, and compliment the chamomile.
Iced & Cold Brewing
- Make as for hot, but add extra tea - a rule of thumb is to double the amount used per cup. When the tea has cooled a little, pour over ice. It is important to make the tea stronger as the ice will water it down.
- Alternatively, you can place the tea in a jug and add cold water. Leave to infuse for a few hours (or overnight in the fridge) strain and enjoy. Cold brewing will give a smoother taste.
The fennel flavour of the tea
I was sent a sample pack of this tea with my order and liked it so much I have to have a cup most days. Often herbal teas can be bland and tasteless, but this one has a really complex, refreshing flavour. I think it is the fennel that makes the difference. Not sure if it does make me more relaxed, but enjoy it anyway.
