What's in Your Tea?

My favorite tea pot filled with ginger and chamomile.
This morning when I let the dogs out, the crisp cool air tickled my nose.

Fall is here.

It dipped into the 40s overnight and will reach mid 70s during the day. On chilly mornings like this, I love to start my day with a cup of hot tea. Although I usually reach for a tea bag, I really like taking the time to make "homemade" pots of tea.

If you think about it, tea can be processed or a "whole food". You never know what's really in a tea bag. I have read about some companies using grass and weeds as fillers.

When I make tea, I add the ingredients directly to the pot, so I know exactly what I'm drinking. This morning I sliced a chunk of fresh ginger root to go with a few dried chamomile flowers. I'm sipping it as I type, and it's delicious!

So, what do you like to put in your tea pot? I'm allergic to caffeine, so I stay away from tea leaves.

My favorite ingredients include:
  • peppermint
  • chamomile
  • rose hips
  • ginger
  • cinnamon sticks
  • honey
  • fresh lemon juice

Until Next Time,
Choose Healthy!
