A beautifully simple and nourishing self care recipe…

I teamed up with Jess of The Wild Bloom Creative to create a floral self care recipe that will leave you feeling like the special human you are in under ten minutes. What makes this loose leaf tea recipe so special is that it contains four different loose leaf teas, including three floral varieties, so it is beautifully aromatic and uplifting – perfect for any time you need a boost.

No fancy latte art required.

There’s truly something so beautiful about taking a few minutes to create a warm mug of tea and enjoy it while sitting still away from technology – not poured into a Thermos and chugged during your morning commute. If you’re feeling up to it, try out this simple ritual for a few days and tell me how you feel!

INGREDIENTS

Loose Leaf Teas
1 tsp Rooibos
¼ tsp Lavender Flowers
¼ tsp Rose Petal
½ tsp Chamomile Flower

Additional Ingredients
16 oz. of filtered water
1 tbsp coconut butter
¼ tsp lavender honey or natural sweetener of choice (honey, agave, maple syrup)

Other
A large Mason Jar
Your favorite mug
A high-powered blender

DIRECTIONS

1. Heat up water (not quite boiling as it can damage the herbs) and add tea blend and water to a mason jar, cover jar with lid.

This is the best way to steep tea because it keeps the essence of the tea from escaping in the steam!

2. After steeping for 5-10 minutes, drain.

3. Add tea, coconut butter, and sweetener of choice to a blender and blend until frothy.

Helpful Tips
In general, a good rule of thumb for loose leaf tea is 2 teaspoons of herbs per 16 oz. of water. Also, if you don’t have the loose leaf herbs listed above, simply combine your favorite tea bags that you have on hand. Just steep about 2-3 bags and continue as directed above!
