Benefits of Chamomile Mint Tea

chamomile

There is always time for tea. Especially Chamomile Mint which is one of our customers’ favorites. The flavor is so inviting, with a hint of peppermint that is so relaxing and warming, it really is a hug in a mug. Chamomile tea is made from a daisy-like plant, bringing that extra sunshine to each cup. Besides its minty flavor, there are several other reasons why you should be enjoying a glass of chamomile tea regularly.

THE BENEFITS

Here are the many wonderful benefits you get from drinking this caffeine-free tea.

SLEEP AID

Where Chamomile gets most of its recognition is the fact that it is a natural sleep-aid. Enjoying a cup of chamomile tea about a half an hour before you decide to hit the hay, will really make a difference in the period of time it takes you to fall into a deep sleep. Start counting your sheep…ZzzZZzzzzZz.

DARK CIRCLES

Waking up to dark circles under your eyes is like waking up to find out you used your last Teasia K-Cup yesterday. Tragic. However, make sure you stock up because the key to relieving those dark under eyes is Chamomile! Chamomile helps act as an anti-inflammatory so it will help soothe and refresh those tired eyes. It takes just 5 minutes. Take our K-cup and pour the contents out into the center of a 4×4 cut of muslin (cheesecloth). Bring the corners of the cloth together and tie with bakers twine into little tea bags. Brew tea as normal, once the bags have completely cooled place them on your eyes. Sit back, relax and enjoy the 10 minute mini spa session!

MUSCLE SPASMS

Sometimes our day to day life can get a little exhausting; all that stress on your body can lead to the dreaded back spasms. Glycine directly affects muscle spasms. Chamomile has been proven to help the glycine levels in your body rise. When the levels rise it helps calm the uncomfortable spasms you may be feeling in your back from time to time. Drink up!

ACNE & SKIN IRRITATION

Chamomile is loaded with bacteria fighting antioxidants, the same bacteria that produces acne. Adding Chamomile to your beauty routine might be just the trick to clear up your skin. The best way to reap the benefits is to brew our K-cups normally, then pour the tea into a separate bowl and hold your face in the steam. Chamomile also helps with bug bites, sunburns and eczema. Take some of those fancy tea bags you’ve made using our K-cups, bring them to a boil, let them cool and then place them on the irritated areas. This will help relieve your skin while conditioning the irritated area. Ahhhhhh…we can feel the relief already.

Chamomile Tea

STOMACH CRAMPS

Our favorite reason to enjoy Chamomile tea is to help relieve stomach cramps. The only natural remedy we have found that works as quickly and effectively as medicine. Drink this tea twice a day, once in the morning and once at night. Also because our Chamomile Mint Tea has the perfect amount of peppermint in it, it can also help you when you’re feeling a little under the weather. Sore throat? Peppermint tea. Cough? Peppermint tea. Congested? Peppermint tea. Add some honey with this tea and it’ll soothe your cough in no time. The possibilities are endless!

Brew up a cup of Chamomile Mint today. We’ve made it even more convenient to enjoy by capturing the magic of Chamomile inside our ready to use K-cup!

Summer is still here and we are constantly looking for some healthy snacks to help cancel out is such a treat and it can always be enjoyed on the go which is a real bonus when you’re busy with your summer activities. The best part about my summertime fruit treats are that you can enjoy fruit in so many different ways so it never feels like the same old boring snack. Today we are  sharing a couple different ways to enjoy fruit!

SNACK ONE: Frozen Grapes

We love freezing grapes overnight in the freezer. This helps give that cold refreshing Popsicle taste with all natural sugars.grapes

PRO TIP:

We also like to take these frozen grapes and throw them in my sangria or white wine to mimic ice cubes. It helps keep things super cold without watering down the drink.  Perfect for those warm summer nights!

SNACK TWO: Apple Cinnamon Ginger Chips

  4. Once boiled add a cinnamon stick.

tea-leaves-2324032_640

Oolong Tea is smooth and warm with a hint of sweet fruits. The subtle complexity makes it perfect for an everyday tea. Many consider oolong tea to offer the most complete tea drinking experience as it brings the light, fresh flavors of green tea and the complex flavors of black tea into a perfect balance. Teasia Oolong Tea is smooth and warm with a hint of sweet fruits. The subtle complexity makes it perfect for an everyday tea.

Try adding a splash of milk and drizzle some honey for a sweeter tea served on ice, or drink the tea by itself and enjoy its natural delicious flavors.

Roasted Oolong Tea has a natural roasted, earthy flavor.  To all those coffee lovers out there, this brew is the right one for you. The long-lasting fragrance will captivate your senses. In comparison to un-roasted oolong tea, which is lighter and brews a light yellow/green color, roasted oolong produces a darker, richer brew. Our Roasted Oolong Tea has a natural roasted, earthy flavor with a long-lasting fragrance that will captivate your senses.

 

Enjoy this cup of tea with your breakfast and get started on the right foot.

Health Benefits:

Everyone knows that drinking tea reaps many health benefits and here are some listed that may help you become healthier.

How Much Caffeine is in Your Beverage?

Do you find yourself drinking 2 cups of coffee and then a can of soda to keep up with your busy day? You can find caffeine in beverages you drink on a daily basis and you may not be aware of how many milligrams of caffeine is in each serving and how it affects your body. Here, we break down a few common beverages just for your reference compared to teas:

coffee-cup-1797283_640

Coffee is a popular drink among us all and please keep in mind that the caffeine levels we represent are for reference only and may vary depending on various factors such as grinding and brewing procedures. In a mug of brewed coffee (about 8 ounces) may contain between 95 mg to 200 mg of caffeine. What does that mean? Some side effects may include headaches, anxiety, an upset stomach as well as trouble sleeping.

Up garbage-1024806_640next we have Energy Drinks, you know, that fizzy drink that usually comes in an aluminum can. You will find 27 to 39 grams of sugar in an 8 ounce serving of a typical energy drink as well as synthetic caffeine between 6 mg to 242 mg per serving! Good luck trying to find some healthy ingredients in this beverage as there are little to no health benefits, so we recommend you avoid these if you’re looking for some energy. Some side effects may include restlessness, fast heartbeat and insomnia.

 

can-161093_640
Next we have the beloved
Soda. This sugary drink is enjoyed by adults and children because of the sweet flavors, the fizziness and the caffeine. Not only is a typical 12 ounce can packed with unhealthy ingredients such as high fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners and phosphor acid but it may contain between 16 to 55mg of caffeine. Similar to an energy drink, sodas do not offer any health benefits and have been blamed to cause weight gain and type 2 diabetes.

 

 

Lastly, onformosa-variety-packe of our favorite types of beverage whether it’s on ice or in a mug enjoyed hot, we have Tea. In our Teasia Formosa Series, we have our traditional Black Tea, Green Tea, Oolong Tea and Roasted Oolong Tea. The caffeine levels range in this series and are listed here:

 

Type of Tea Caffeine Level*
Black Tea 60-90 mg
Green Tea 35-70 mg
Roasted Oolong Tea 55-80mg
Oolong Tea 50-75mg

General estimates of caffeine per 8 ounce cup. Teasia’s k-cup offers a second brew without losing flavor. The second brew will naturally have lower caffeine levels.

As you can tell, black tea offers half the amount of caffeine compared to coffee. With the variety of flavors found in our Formosa and Floral series, you’ll find your favorite flavors. Our teas are also all natural so you will not find any unhealthy ingredients found in energy drinks and soda.

floral-variety-pack

 

Our Floral Series offers Jasmine Green Tea, Rose Black Tea, Chamomile Mint Tea (Caffeine Free) and Rooibos Lemongrass Tea (Caffeine Free).

 

Type of Tea Caffeine Level*
Rose Tea 60-90 mg
