I’ve recently adopted a practice of make a large batch of herbal iced tea that lasts about a week until gone (I live by myself).
I started doing this because all herbs have SO many health benefits, vitamins and minerals.
Each week I use different herbs so I’m getting some different health benefits, vitamins and mineral.
I used to take coffee to work in a thermos, but have replaced it with the herbal iced tea and I seem to be less sleepy and have less aches and pains, I believe because of the anti-inflammatory effect that a lot of herbs have. Some, like mint and rosemary can keep you more alert.
The way that I make my herbal iced tea is to fill the container with hot tap water and add sugar to taste (you could also make it without sweetener, or use honey, Stevia or some other healthy alternative), then stir to dissolve. Then I add the herbs and let the jug sit on the counter overnight.
When we begin to get more sun here, I’ll make it as a sun tea.
In the morning, there sits a big jug of beautiful herbal tea on the counter. That’s when I put it in the fridge and by the time I get home from work, it’s nice and cold.
If you decide to do this, be sure to research the herbs you use because some have health warnings for pregnancy, compromised health or allergies.

Here are a few of the products available with my art printed on them (by clicking an item you like, it will take you to the page where it’s available). They’d make great gifts to yourself or someone you love and would help support my dream of becoming a full-time writer and artist. Any purchase would be SO appreciated, but if you don’t want to or can’t, that’s totally fine. Just stopping by and reading my blog is a huge support.
