When it comes to focused energy required when needing to get things done, this is my go to tea!
I find the slight caffeine content of the green tea great for keeping my energy levels up, while the adaptogen properties of the holy basil really add in a whole new level of lasting energy and mental focusing power!
All Organic Ingredients:
- Green Tea
- Holy Basil (Tulsi)
I like to take this tea out when I am going to do something which requires a lot of effort, like standing at an event and talking to people about herbs all day. That constant output of energy can be draining for me, but this tea blend helps keep me going on track.
I also find it very useful for those times when I need to diligently focus on the task at hand and get something done in crunch time. I am able to stay sharper longer and produce quality work.
If you like a good green tea, this one is for you!
I get best results with this tea by brewing up a large amount at once, usually a 1 liter mason jar. This way I have the tea readily available and I can sip on it throughout the day without having to make a fresh cup each time.
The second key for my success with this tea is steeping it for a super long time so I can get the most goodness out of the herbs. I do this by simply placing about 1 teaspoon of herb per cup of water (so 3-4 tsps in 1 liter mason jar) in the jar and then pouring the hot water over the herbs in the jar and leaving it for the rest of the day to steep.
I don’t strain out the herbs while I drink from the jar, as I find they continue to enhance the effectiveness of the tea by steeping longer. Over the day, the tea gets stronger and I find it works better for me. I often store it in the refrigerator as it cools down so it keeps even longer and if I don’t drink it all in one day, it is still good the next day.
This blend also makes a great liquid base addition to any smoothies.
