An earthy caffeine-free tea blend I made with a lot of benefits!
Ingredients: green rooibos, peppermint, astragalus root, licorice root, rosehips, juniper berries, jasmine flowers.
Summary: anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that aid the digestive and respiratory systems.
Astragalus root was recommended to me by a naturopath years ago when my immune system was very weak. The compounds found in astragalus reduce inflammation, and most notably activate various immune cells in your body. You can find it in a concentrated tincture (i used to drink a fermented astragalus tincture 😍bonus😍), but now that my immunity isn’t in SOS mode, I just add the dried root to my tea blends, which is much more affordable and a great way to keep immunity up! You can get the root at most health food stores, apothecaries, or wherever you buy your herbs in bulk 🍃
When brewing, I added some Cuban honey, and sage leaves recommended by @mohmoose. My new favourite tea! Sage adds a lovely taste to so many teas and is really soothing on the stomach. TY🦋 You can find them at Middle Eastern food markets and some grocery stores!
