There are times of the day when teas pick one up. There are times of the day when teas calm one down. Now, any time one uses a herbal tea, one is adding to the healing value in one’s life.
Herbal teas such as eyebright, green, oatstraw and orange are great for starting off one’s day, because they are invigorating.
For the midmorning or to keep one going until lunch and may help to curb one’s appetite, one may try ginseng pau d’ arco, or suma.
Now, at noon or at one’s lunchtime, try refreshing *iced teas such as raspberry, strawberry, or peppermint.
*The invention of iced tea was developed by accident from an Englishman named, Richard Blechynden, on a hot day at the St. Louis World Fair in 1904. He was a representative from India and Ceylon Teas. The crowd that had gathered around the representative to sample his teas didn’t care for anything hot; they wanted something cold to drink. So, Richard took tall glasses filled them with ice and poured the hot tea over the ice. The crowd went wild over it!
Teas recommended later in the afternoon to help one feel as if their day is just beginning are yerba mate, ginkgo, and dong quai.
For those interested in drinking an herbal tea as an accompaniment with one’s supper, such as with meat, fish, casseroles or salad, one may try rosemary, sage or anise.
At the close of one’s day or the quiet moments, chamomile, hops, and licorice are known for helping one get to sleep.
