What better way to begin the year than with a healthy start!

We all start out the New Year with the greatest of intentions. Most people I know want to lose weight, exercise more, and get healthy! With all of the health concerns these days, it’s the perfect time to incorporate my 7 Herbal Teas for a Healthier Winter. Winter teas not only have the benefit of warming us up on chilly cold days, but they also have many health benefits for boosting your immune system.

And there you have the key! Boost your immune system with Winter teas so you don’t get sick in the first place! 

I hear often from friends that they only drink tea if they are already sick. That is wonderful to do, but how about drinking tea before you get the sniffles or sore throat to begin with?

Tea School

Several years back I was fortunate enough to be able to attend tea school in Montreal, at Camillia-Sinensis! 

Yes, tea school is a thing and I highly recommend it if you ever have the chance to go to a class or two. Tea School is similar to wine tasting. You will emerge with an education in one of the world’s oldest drinks! 

My hope is to share my wonderful experience with you soon!

Experienced tea masters provided a wealth of information regarding different teas, (ex.) green, yellow, white, oolong, black or aged tea which is known as pu-er’. This was an experience that opened up my mind and my appreciation of tea, tea brewing, and the benefits of drinking tea for health purposes.
