Drinking beverages that mean us no good, in no way, shape, or form. So what do we do when we want flavor but want to steer clear of the mounds of sugar? Herbal Tea.
Herbal teas are the perfect drink to quench your thirst during the summer months, and they are fun to make. Why stock your home with sugar filled drinks when you can have a beverage that tastes great and has all natural ingredients? I am positive that sounded like a commercial, but it's true. Ever since I started drinking teas, I can tell a difference in my body. the calmness I feel, the soundness of my sleep, and the clarity I feel in my mind. The list literally goes on but you get my point.
