Healing Herbal Teas
Honeybush Spice is a great choice when you are in the mood for a decaf spicy chai tea without the milk and sugar. Honeybush makes a delicious base that is slightly sweet and tangy, and the complexity of the honeybush gets amplified the longer you steep it. Ginger and anise aid in digestion and circulation. Cinnamon and cardamom are also warming herbs, but, in addition, they support the immune system and have strong antimicrobial properties that strengthen your body against illness. Orange zest and vanilla bean are added for their uplifting properties.
