I’m sure that like me, you all have your personal favourite morning wake-up drinks too. And we all sure do need them. For me, it’s not a good morning unless it starts with coffee. But recently, I tried out Indigo Herb’s Rise and Shine Tea and was surprised to find it as invigorating as my usual cuppa.
This tea blend has a combination of highly refreshing ingredients that not just taste wonderful, but also energize you. The combination of spicy ginger and peppermint gives you a kick, while the brain-boosting rosemary and ginkgo make you more alert. The subtle flavours of calendula and nettle give you the sense that you’re enjoying a herby mix of goodness that’ll keep you healthy.
And I believe the complexity and brilliance of Indigo Herbs brews can be attributed to the fine quality of botanicals used. If made correctly, each sip has an intense, soothing flavour that is unlike other, somewhat weak teas. The recommended method of infusion is using one teaspoon of tea leaves per cup, and leaving them boiling-hot water for 5 – 10 minutes. You can then strain the solution and sip on the delicious drink in absolute pleasure.
I must tell you that last week, when I first tried the Rise and Shine blend, I wasn’t feeling too well. I had mild fever and decided to forgo my morning coffee in favour of this tea. And would you believe it? It actually helped me a lot. I felt energetic and alert all day, despite my ill-health. I didn’t even miss the caffeine hit that usually keeps me awake and active. Also, I loved the floral taste of meadowsweet and the subtle hint of peppermint – what a lovely combination!
Now, I can’t help but think about what my next purchase is from Indigo Herbs is going to be. Don’t worry, I’ll keep you all posted!
