Three organic, COLORADO-GROWN HERBAL TEAS to keep you healthy and stress-free this holiday season
During the hustle and bustle of the winter months, it’s important to prioritize taking care of your body and mind. One easy way to do that? Warming up with a steaming mug of herbal tea.
Boulder Tea Company, Cold Comfort Wellness Tea
Though December is full of excitement and festivities, it also brings about the cold and flu season, so keeping your immune system strong is key. This comforting blend of healing herbs contains organic echinacea leaf, which has been used by Native Americans for centuries to treat pain and inflammation. Echinacea is rich in antioxidants that boost immune function and possess antiviral effects.
The Tea Spot, Mile High Chai
This organic spiced tea features a blend of black tea and ginger, both of which have strong anti-inflammatory properties to keep you healthy during flu season. Ginger has long been used to aid digestion and ease nausea. Black tea is full of essential antibacterial vitamins and is known to boost energy levels to keep you active during the ever-busy holidays.
Two Leaves and a Bud, Organic Chamomile Tea
The holiday season is often a high-stress time of year, and for some, the dreary winter months can provoke feelings of sadness and lethargy. Chamomile is commonly known for its ability to promote a good night’s sleep, and its use can be dated as far back as ancient Egypt. In addition to its use as a sleep aid, curling up with a warm cup of chamomile tea can help ease those symptoms of melancholy and alleviate stress and anxiety.
