I used to LOVE teas of all kinds (and coffees), but more so I was seeking the caffeine content to fuel my days for the levels of functioning required by society.
My adrenal glands and other biological responses taught me how to make different choices and I now prefer what I guess you would call herbal infusions, instead.
I enjoy an ongoing differing variety of burdock root, yellow dock, red clover, dandelion, wormwood, white willow, wild plantain, stinging nettles, chamomile, sarsaparilla, comfrey, calendula, etc.
Often times upon waking, I enjoy a nice warm infusion of fresh cut ginger root and lemon slices to start my day.
I'll sometimes add a drop or two of flower essences or tinctures, as well.
I find much comfort in the daily ritual of making my blends in a small Asian tea set that I happened upon at a consignment shop and treating it as a meditative ceremony of sorts.
Especially when I'm fortunate enough to harvest some of the ingredients from our own land, as it adds a level of deep (to me) meaning I never found in my cup before.
"Strange times are these in which we live when old and young are taught falsehoods in school. And the person that dares to tell the truth is called at once a lunatic and a fool." ~Plato
