The Gift of Tea

I’m a tea girl through and through.  I drink tea like my coffee loving friends drink their beloved coffee.  Tea has been a real life saver for me though in many ways.  When I was pregnant with both my children a cup of chamomile tea would somehow calm my Crohn’s flares.  And if you know what a flare feels like, you know how wonderful it is to find something to decrease that pain.  I have a weakened digestive system so I frequently rely on peppermint and ginger tea as a quick and effective digestive aid.  To calm my nerves I love a cup of chamomile and lavender, for clarity of mind, Rooibos, and for a pick-me-up I adore a smokey green tea or Herba Mate.  

I can’t think of a better gift than the gift of beautiful, healing tea!

Total cost was about $5.  

I went to my local Coop and searched through the loose-leaf teas.  I found a nice middle road green tea and a herb/fruit blend.  I purchased a cup or so of each and mixed together.  I dressed the tea with a beautiful organic lemon and a fun stainless steel mesh tea infuser.  This would be a super fun gift for the tea enthusiast or otherwise.  This would also be a thoughtful gift for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, or your child’s teacher.

You could certainly expand on this idea and create a more involved tea gift.  Some ideas include:
