Growing up, my mom would always have a glass of tea with her. She would brew it in the sun in the summer and on the stove in the winter. I never liked it. It wasn’t until I was 9 and had become ill that I had my first cup of hot tea…more specially, a hot toddy. For those unfamiliar, a hot toddy is hot tea with lemon, honey and a shot whiskey. Some may argue it was the whiskey that got me “hooked”, but I know it was tea. Growing up in England was probably also a factor. After that first hot toddy I would, and still do, turn to a nice cup of tea to soothe and comfort me.
Although I’ve been a tea drinker for a very long time, I’ve only recently fully understood the powerful and magical healing properties of tea! Several years ago a former professor of mine opened my eyes to GMO’s and all the other unnatural things that are in and done to our food. Which put me on the path for a healthier and more conscientious life style consuming and using natural ingredients and remedies. I learned quickly how plants and herbs have beneficial healing properties, as well as long lasting preventive properties. I started researching and experimenting with using herbs in my food and making my own herbal tea blends for my personal aliments and prevention purposes.
My journey in discovering the power of tea and herbs has been magical! I love creating new blends to help ease and bring happiness! Through tea blending, I feel a connection with Gaia and with those I create the blend for. Sipping on a special cup of tea can transport you into another realm where your mind is relaxed and your soul is singing. I lose myself in at least 2 cups of tea a day and I can’t wait for you to join me!
