One of my most favorite things to do when creating a tea blend, is to simply enjoy the process. To not get caught into what it should looks like, or if I am adding to much, or to little of something. Its about being present with whats calling at the moment. Its important for me to connect with the plant before picking it. I believe is essential to treat with honor, and respect THAT which give us their life, so we can heal our bodies, mind and soul. You see, is not that complicated. Treat others as you want others to treat you :-) Basic rules of healthy living :-) And that is crucial with Everything, and Anything you are planning to put in your body. I actually believe thats where ALL begins.
So for all of you Tea lovers, Here is a Simple, but Powerful tea recipe I created, and call it,
1 part dandelion leaf -A great tonic herbs of all times. High in vitamins and minerals including calcium, magnesium, iron and vitamins A and C.
1/4 Chinese Star Anise - A carminative, stimulant, analgesic, and energy regulator.
1/4 Fresh Mint - Good for colds, flu, fever, gas and mind digestive disorders.
Jiaogula leaf (optional) Also call as "the Herb of Immortality"
A pinch of rose petals - It dries cold, clear mucous discharges, relieves constrictives feelings of chest and abdomen, treats poor appetite, harmonize blood, and much more.
I suggest not adding to much flowers on your tea, since it can overpower on the taste.
Boil a cup water. After is boil, let it cool down for few seconds. Mix 1 teaspoon of your tea blend with one cup of hot water. Then Relax and Enjoy your tea!
Remember to breathe the steam that comes from that cup. It's very healing for our bodies. And also remember to be grateful for all the nurturing that its happening as you sip your Prefect Tea!
