‘It’s Tea Season’, that’s what I hear a lot in the past two months. Not quite resonate with that, because for me it’s always tea season, but I get it.
People in our country, actually the majority, had been taught that tea is the beverage for cold days, as a prevention and solution for the flu, mostly. The lack of knowledge about this magic potion is mischief for the community itself.
They should put Tea lessons in schools!
Well, I hope the message will spread wide. What these herbs are giving us is not just prevention of the flu, but many serious diseases as well. Won’t be naming it here, just by saying those words make me feel anxious but you can always research and find many scientific proofs on this topic.
What I will mention are vitamins, minerals, and acids naturally found in herbs and spices that are doing us this big favor;
Vitamin C – the most known antioxidant Vitamin A (Carotene) – helps form and maintain healthy bones, tissues, and skin Vitamin K – is essential for normal blood clotting Vitamins B – help the body convert food into energy and maintain healthy cells Folic Acid – plays a role in cell division Manganese – essential for bone growth and development Potassium – is vital for a healthy heart Fluoride – is the most successful agent against tooth decay
This is just a quick overview of the main components found in tea herbs. If you drink it daily you are all set for getting healthy substances into your system, so no worries about that.
But for the more joy of sipping a beverage, pay attention to your preferences. What do you like?
What I noticed about myself is that I favor one tea blend for a while rather than drink a bunch of different ones. I’m more fan of the blends than just one herb, so for example, this season my favorite is ginger root with a sprinkle of cinnamon and vanilla. Oh, I’m loving it! If I drink at least for cups a day, it would be two to three cups of this tea and one of some other. And I do it daily, for like a month or two, then I switch to some different go-to blend and combine the rest.
This doesn’t have to be the case for you, find what you like. That way you are willing to spend more joyful time with your cups 😉 Just make sure that you find an exciting way to add herbs and spices to your daily routine, through the beverages or food.
If you have a comforting blend of your own, post it in the comments below. I would love to hear what are your favorites, and what you enjoy and maybe get some new ideas for Black Rabbit Tea mixing, that would be great!

Who’s your Hottie ? 😀
I love how you affirmed having a favorite go-to tea for a while and then shifting into something new. My current favorite is a mix of rose, chamomile, and lavender (possibly with a few others mixed in).

I love to mix rose petals with black tea, it’s such a punch for the morning, strong in taste.
