Brrrr…..the mornings are getting cold these days! Perfect time for a cup of hot tea. Did you know that Blue Skys Farm sells teas? Yes, you can grow herbs for teas right here in Rhode Island. In fact, every ingredient in our teas are grown at Blue Skys Farm. Doesn’t get any more local than that!
|Electric Kettle, Tea Tumbler & BSF French Tisane|
A tisane is any non-caffeinated beverage made from the infusion of any herbs or spices in hot water. Blue Skys French Tisane consists of Lemon Verbena, Lavender and Peppermint. I had some this morning in my Tea Tumbler and it was warming and tasty.
The herbs in this tisane also have therapeutic properties and health benefits.
Lemon Verbina: Eases tension, indigestion and reduce fevers.
Lavender: Relieves headaches, aids in sleep and increases relaxation.
Peppermint: Treats upset stomach and bloating, enhances memory and alertness.
