For example, if I’m having trouble sleeping, I like to drink chamomile with lavender since it’s naturally caffeine free and since both of those herbs help to promote a calmness like few other things I’ve found; and they smell absolutely amazing. When I’ve been feeling rough for more than two or three days in a row, I like to drink a detox tea a couple times a day for a week or more. And if I’m feeling cold symptoms, I’ll guess that my immune system is lagging behind, so I’ll drink a tea like echinacea to help boost my immune system.
There are so many ways to bring teas into ones travels, and everyday life, and while there are many benefits that still must be proven clinically, one can journey into the world of tea and find so many varieties of tastes, smells, and sensations. I’ve been drinking tea regularly for 3-4 years now, and I am still finding so many new varieties that I had no idea even existed. So I reached out to Traditional Medicinals to assist me in this feature, and they sent me six of their teas to try out. Here’s what I thought:
- Organic Chamomile with Lavender is perhaps the most intoxicating of the list, because it’s a floral heavy tea that brings together two soothing, calming flowers that each have their own unique scent and benefit. It’s an amazingly tasty tea that helps ease me to sleep.
- Organic Lemon Balm is an herb from that has an herbal, citrus, lemon taste, that is indeed delicious. Lemon Balm is good for tension release and relaxation, with some benefits for indigestion.
- Organic Green Tea Lemongrass is a stimulating and bright tea with tasting notes of lemon. I like this tea for slow mornings when I need a boost of energy.
- Organic Echinacea Plus with Elderberry is sweet tea with a mild bitter berry taste that sort of tingles the tongue, which is apparently a sign of very high quality. This tea is a life saver for when cold-like symptoms seem to take hold, as it boosts the immune system.
- Organic Stress Ease is an herbal tea blend that includes cinnamon bark, licorice root and the organic skullcap herb, which is to assist with the easing of stress, tension and for bringing relaxation. I like taking a bath and drinking this tea after a long hard day.
- Organic EveryDay Detox with Lemon is a bittersweet taste with hints of zesty herbal lemon. This tea is a blend of organic burdock root, stinging nettle leaf, cleavers herb, dandelion root and lemon myrtle leaf, which is married together to bring detoxification effects to the body, by promoting healthy skin, as well as liver and kidney function. Most detox teas have a spicy and bitter, yet odd taste that after a couple of days of use I no longer have a taste for, but TM nailed this blend, because the taste never got old when I last detoxed.
All of Traditional Medicinals’ teas that I’ve tried have been top quality with amazing aromas and beautiful tastes, providing me with a range of benefits.
