Autumn Tea Blend

Regular price $18.00 $0.00 Unit price per

A festive caffeine-free blend of harvest fruits and flowers with autumn fruit and spice flavors.

Ingredients: Citrus peels, cranberries, apples, rooibos, cinnamon, cloves and rose hips.

Approximately 10 servings.

Loose leaf tea in a glass jar. The most delicious essence of fall.  The changes of the season are always a favorite of mine. With the spicy scents of cinnamon and cloves. Fresh dehydrated apples and cranberries.

Enjoy this cup on a cool fall evening to savor each and every sip. Add in a vanilla creamer for a richer taste. 

Roobios: Rooibos tea is rich in many mineral contents such as iron, calcium, potassium, copper, manganese, zinc, magnesium and alpha hydroxy acid. It also contains antioxidants like aspalathin and nothofagin, and the extremely potent and versatile phenolic compounds.

 

Rose Hips: Also known as Rose Canina.  Renowned for lifting the spirits, this queen of flowers is used in folklore to make or mend alliances, and as an aphrodisiac. Used by the Romans in festivities where petals were eaten, roses were valued in monastic gardens both spiritually, as symbols of Christ’s blood, and for their healing powers. Traditionally used as an antidepressant—the first-century Arab physician Avicenna prepared rose water, while sixteenth-century British herbalist John Gerard said, “The distilled water is good for the strengthening of the heart, and refreshing of the spirits, and likewise for all things that require a gentle cooling.” Hips are used as a sedative in herbal medicine and the essential oil (“attar of rose”) is used in aromatherapy as an antidepressant, a sedative, and for pain relief in arthritis.
