Good morning friends! Happy Monday! Tea or coffee?
For many of you, your morning ritual consists of pouring yourself a big cuppa or more, of coffee. For some of you it’s tea, or perhaps both. I begin with Yerba Mate and later switch to Lemon Ginger, Peppermint or Bengal Spice. Some days, I switch it up and try a new tea, or concoct my own with a variety of herbs and leaves.
Having said that...I love the olfactory-inducing aromas and bold flavours in a hot, strong cup of java. Here’s the thing though, your overall health, mind and body feels and functions much better when choosing caffeine-free beverages. The mere act of holding a cup of tea is soothing and comforting. Tea is simple. Tea is comforting. Tea is forgiving. Tea is an excellent option with loads of healthy benefits.

“If you are cold, tea will warm you;
If you are too heated, it will cool you;
If you are depressed, it will cheer you;
If you are excited, it will calm you.”

Former Prime Minister of the U.K., British Statesman, and Liberal Politician.
