Yay! We finally ordered our new herbal teas and they were delivered yesterday. What? Did I just say that? Honestly, I can’t believe I am even thinking that. And I am even more surprised that my husband was so excited about them.
Last year, when my husband and I started drinking herbal teas, it took us a while to develop a taste for them. Our pallets were so accustom to sugary drinks like sweet tea and soda, that something like herbal tea tasted a little too earthy. Just as people whose diets consist of mostly processed foods usually do not enjoy the taste of something as natural as vegetables. Well, we pressed on because we were aware of the major health benefits of herbs… detoxification, natural energy, focus, relaxation. They can help with weight management, lower blood pressure, fight free radicals, soothe a soar throat, and calm an upset stomach. The list goes on and on. The benefits were well worth the time that it took us to cleanse our pallets of the sugary beverages enough to really start to enjoy the warmth and earthiness of a cup of herbal tea. So much so, that we were thrilled to learn that one of our favorite companies, Neal’s Yard Remedies, was bringing 9 of their organic herbal teas to the US.
So this morning I am sitting outside on the balcony enjoying this beautiful weather, the view, and my herbal tea. And I am loving every bit of it! If you aren’t already a fan of herbal teas, I urge you to give them a try and reap the benefits.
