Vibrantly colored Rooibos tea is a herbal tea that is becoming more and more popular.

This colorful little flower – although considered by many to be a bothersome weed – is actually bursting with vitamins and minerals. Dandelion tea can be made from the plant’s leaves, flowers, or both, and provides many health benefits – it can gently cleanse the liver, ease constipation, stimulate digestion, reduce fluid retention, and relieve the pain and swelling of arthritis.
Red Clover Tea
Made from the dried blossoms of the perennial red clover plant, red clover herbal tea is especially well-known for its ability to lessen the symptoms and discomforts of menopause. Brew a cup of red clover tisane to reduce the intensity and frequency of hot flashes, improve sleep, strengthen bones, lessen anxiety, and much more! This colorful tea has many other physical and mental health benefits, too.
Warm and spicy, cinnamon tea is simple to make from scratch and has many health benefits, from fighting viruses to soothing an upset stomach to stabilizing blood sugar. It may also help with weight loss and can ease menstrual cramps. Delicious on its own or blended with other herbs and spices, cinnamon tea becomes even more of a powerhouse when combined with honey. Organic cinnamon tea is a safe, healthy choice that is good for the environment, too!
Delicious and fragrant, chamomile tea can help and heal us in so many ways. This amazing brew has topical benefits, as well, and can even be used cosmetically! To ease aches and pains, soothe a colicky baby, sleep soundly through the night, or find relief from irritated skin, steep a comforting cup (or pot) of this age-old medicinal cure-all tea.
Easy to grow and an aromatic addition to your garden or flowerpot, peppermint can clear a stuffy nose, soothe a sore throat, ease stomach cramps, and ward off a cold. One invigorating whiff of peppermint tea can calm you when you’re feeling stressed or anxious.
