...and now it's time for tea

I'm a bit of a tea junkie!  I can't wait to be able to share my love of tea with LBG!  As the good Mississippian I am, I love sweet, iced tea.  As the kid and wife of New Englanders and having going to high school in Connecticut, hot tea has a special place in my heart as well!

Since we are currently living in the month of February, here are the current favorites for drinking hot!
  • Zhena's Gypsy Tea's Red Lavender- It's fair trade, organic, and caffeine free.  The sachets are compostable and the tin is recycleable!
  • Zhena's Gypsy Tea's Coconut Chai- Fair trade and organic.  It's moderately caffeinated and is certified gluten and allergen free.  You can compost the sachets and recycle the tin.
  • Mighty Leaf Tea's Organic Spring Jasmine- Of course, it's organic and lightly caffeinated.  The pouches are biodegratable and the box is printed with soy ink!  
  • Guayaki Yerba Mate's Mate Chocolatte- An organic, shade grown tea.  The company is a member of the Fair Trade Foundation.  
  • Tazo's Organic Apple Red- USDA Certified Organic and the box is recyclable.  They don't say the tea bags are compostable, but I've always thrown them in the compost bin.
  • Stash's Raspberry and White Tea- Decaffinated.  Once again, I compost the tea bags.
  • Traditional Medicinals' Seasonal Herb Sampler- Contains four types of tea that are all caffeine free.  100% organic ingredients certified by the California Certified Organic Farmers.
You should give them a try!  I bought all of them from my local Kroger so I assume they are fairly easy to find in grocery stores.  If they aren't in the tea section, check out the organic area.  Remember, if you use honey, locally harvested and raw is best!  You support a local beekeeper, but also the local pollens in the honey help with pollen allergies!
