Each year, I make it a point to not let the holiday madness eclipse all the holiday cheer. Each year, I get that much closer to achieving this goal. This year, I kept myself centered by adding Traditional Medicinals herbal teas to my wellness program. I’m doing a 3 Teas, 3 Weeks experience with the goal of incorporating three teas into my daily routine for three weeks.
There is something about the ritual of tea drinking that makes you pause and take a breath. It’s one of the few things I don’t rush. It’s a slow process and I prefer it that way. So often, my daily routine requires me to sprint from one thing to the next, and many times I’m already thinking about the next thing before I finish what is at hand.
When it comes to tea time, I put everything aside – no electronics, no cell phones and definitely no work talk. Tea time is a favorite for both Naomi and me. It’s something she’s done since I met her. It’s the slowest 20 minutes of the day, and if I’m lucky, I can stretch it to 30. Most times we sit and chat about places we want to travel, things we want to do – it’s a time to daydream and wanderlust. Other times, we enjoy our tea while she writes in her journal and I read.So, I’m excited to introduce Traditional Medicinals into this routine and during our day.
To start off my 3 Teas 3 Weeks experience, I’m sipping their Roasted Dandelion Root. It’s pleasantly roasted with bitter notes. This tea stimulates the liver and supports healthy digestion.* I like mine plain, but sometimes I add a little honey to it. Naomi adds a little fresh ginger to hers to give it added warmth. Whether or not we add anything, I love that almost all of their teas are made using organically farmed and organically wild-collected herbs from ethical trading partnerships. That makes Traditional Medicinals my go-to for an easy and effective way to incorporate the power of plants into my wellness routine.
And stay tuned because I’ll be sharing two more Traditional Medicinals teas: Chamomile with Lavender and Nighty Night, which I picked based on my wellness rituals and daily routine. For now, you can find their teas here, and you can also buy two and get one free. Or, just pick some up next time you are in Whole Foods!
