| January/February 2013

Here at Mother Earth Living, we’re no strangers to tea. The shelves in our office are always stocked with tried-and-true brews and new flavors we’re eager to taste. Not only is it one of our jobs to scout the best-tasting teas for our readers (lucky us!), we know that drinking tea daily can give our health a boost. And best of all, there are hundreds of delicious tea options to choose from. We decided to put all this tea-drinking experience to good use and share some of our all-time medicinal favorites with you.

For a comforting winter treat that helps soothe a scratchy throat, I love Frontier Co-op’s Organic Luscious Licorice Tea. I buy this delicious blend in bulk and sip it throughout winter to warm chilly nights and fend off illness. The tea is made with licorice root—a supersweet herb that’s both an antiviral and a demulcent, meaning it coats the throat and relieves irritation—along with blood sugar-stabilizing cinnamon, antioxidant cloves and calming chamomile.

Numi Organic Tea’s Moroccan Mint is the perfect daytime refresher, thanks to its invigorating minty scent. I sip it midmorning and midafternoon for a little boost during prime productivity hours. The essential oils in mint contain menthol, which has proven antimicrobial actions. Plus, it chases away upset stomach and soothes indigestion, so it’s perfect to tuck into a travel bag or sip in transit.

During lunch, I like to treat myself to a glass of NOW Foods’ Feelin’ Groovy, a slightly tart blend that makes a perfect pick-me-up. It tastes great over ice and is enriched with a variety of health-benefiting herbs including hibiscus, peppermint, echinacea, ginger and stevia. Recent studies show that Hibiscus sabdariffa is loaded with antioxidants and vitamin C and has the potential to lower blood pressure.
