I have always been a big tea drinker (mostly herbal) so I have developed quite a taste for good teas. Drinking herbal tea is a great alternative to caffeinated beverages and specific herbs can also have many health benefits. I have recently been introduced to “Good Nature” teas and I have to say I am very impressed. The teas are SO FLAVORFUL! I often am able to get a few cups from the same tea bag- which is not often the case with many pre-packaged herbal teas on the market today. The teas are USDA organic but the company started in Macedonia and now their products are available across 27 different countries.
I have yet to try all their teas, but two of my favorites are: BE WHOLE (to promote digestion) and BE HAPPY (to promote feelings of happiness:)
BE WHOLE tea contains licorice root, sweet fennel, rosemary and ginger. All of these are known as “carminitives” in botanical medicine, helping to decrease gas in the gastrointestinal tract and to increase digestion. This tea is great to sip after a meal. The licorice root is the primary taste in this tea and I love it! In fact, I am sipping some as I write this post now 🙂
BE HAPPY tea contains St. Johns Wort, organic rose hips, red-sorrel flower, chamomile, lemon balm and cloves. It tastes very flavorful and the herbs included in the tea are known to promote a positive and uplifting mood! I love drinking this tea in the morning instead of coffee- Its a feel good beverage! Please caution to those currently on an anti-depressant medication – St Johns Wort can interact with these medications even at low doses. Also for those on birth control pills, this herb may decrease the efficacy of oral contraceptives. Talk to your doctor before supplementing with any product containing this herb if you are on the medications listed above.
BE RESTED (to promote sleep) and BE ENERGIZED (a healthy alternative to coffee) amongst many other various teas from Good Nature. To learn more about their teas and their company please visit: http://www.goodnaturetea.com/
