Vitamin C Tea Blend

Vitamin C Tea Blend


Many of you have seen my spice drawer - always in some state of disarray. I also have another area - filled with ingredients I use to make herbal tea blends. Dozens of little white bags filled with chamomile, hibiscus, dried nettles, citrus peels, ginger and the like. Inviting a spectrum of teas into your life is great way to supplement different vitamins and minerals, and hydrate at the same time. Along those lines, my philosophy is that every glass of tea is an opportunity to do something nice for your body. So, whenever inspired, I blend a couple of small containers full of different ingredients to brew - usually some sort of seasonal or supportive blend, and then keep the containers on hand at both the house and our work studio.

I thought I'd share an easy favorite with you today - a Vitamin C Tea Blend. This one is much appreciated when an immunity boost is needed, or for the times when we're stressed, over-worked, or just dragging a bit. Hibiscus and rose hips are both Vitamin C power houses, and I like to add a good bit of saffron, and lemon peel for dimension and flavor. The pronounced tang and vibrancy of this tea is something I love straight, but feel free to sweeten if you prefer. Here's a video of the process, and a link to the full recipe below that. Enjoy!

I posted the recipe here.

This post reminds me--I need a spice system. I spent considerable time today trying to source a masala dhaba, but the quality I turned up online was questionable. If you have any suggestions, I would appreciate it! I have only one drawer in my kitchen, and cooking Indian food is challenging enough already.

What a wonderful philosophy: every glass of tea is an opportunity to do something nice for your body. I'll have to remember that to share with clients! And this tea looks like a treat - I know I'd love the tang and vibrant notes you describe it having.

I'm with you on the tea, so soothing and comforting, even when you are not sick. But when you are....the vitamin C mix will surely do the trick! I only drink decaf tea, is it possible to know if this is or is not decaf? I'm such a poor sleeper.


HS: Hi Laura - yes, this is decaf. Enjoy!
