I am a morning coffee drinker, it’s true.
There was this one time that my hubby and I decided to quit coffee, and we lasted about 3 months without a coffee maker in our kitchen. Of course, if we needed a caffeine fix for the day, we would go and grab some from the local coffee shop. It started out innocently enough, with us going once a week, then it became a daily habit until we finally broke down and bought our own coffee maker again. Full circle.
But, in the evenings, we love to sip on hot tea.
It’s a great way to relax and unwind after a long day, and hubby and I use that time to reconnect with each other, go over the day, and plan the next. We love drinking a variety of teas, too. From the mint that grows in our front yard, to blends we get from our local co-op. Our newest favorite is Tulsi Teas. Throughout India, Tulsi (AKA Holy Basil) is known as “The Queen of Herbs”, and is revered as a sacred plant infused with healing powers.
We recently got to try some of their boxed teas and loved them all.
Our favorite flavor is the cinnamon rose. It’s a comforting flavor, without being overly sweet or powerful. The best way we have found to brew it is to add 2 tea bags to a quart of boiling water and cover to allow to steep for 10 minutes. You want to cover the jar while it’s steeping, to keep all the oils and flavors in. Add to a mug with some lemon ginger honey and you are on the way to a relaxing, refreshing treat.
Tulsi has different flavors as well, and they are all certified organic.
Some are caffeine free, and others, like their Green Tea, do contain caffeine. But, they all taste fantastic and have quickly become favorites in our house. They are packaged in little separate bags, so I am able to carry the teas in my purse when I am on the go, and it’s so much easier to get hot water at a coffee shop with friends and drink the teas I know I love already.
What’s your favorite way to relax after a long day on the homestead?
