The Gift That Steeps On Giving

The holiday season is about sharing time with friends and family. Sometimes it seems as though the days of giving a heartfelt gift with meaning have faded. Far too often, it is easier to just give a gift card or some mass-produced widget. Modern life is busier than ever, so how can you find the perfect gifts for your loved ones, without over-stressing yourself? Well, tea is a perfect way to make your holiday shopping a relaxing and personalized experience this year. Even the pickiest one on your list can delight in the indulgence of a well-crafted tea. At Discover Teas, we have you covered.

For the last several years, I have enjoyed sending my loved ones great loose-leaf teas as well as steeping solutions and toys for tea lovers. A gift of tea is not just something to drink; it is an expression of caring. It is a wish for the people you care about to take a moment, slow down and nurture the self. The rich aroma of a cup of tea can take us back to simpler times; a memory of sitting at Grandma’s table; or it can excite the senses and thrill the soul with an adventure. Whenever I steep a tea I have received as a gift, it reminds me of the strength of my friendships and how well my friends and loved ones know me.

Whether you choose a tea for certain flavor notes, one for its uniqueness, or even one to support a healthy lifestyle, choosing tea for someone you care for doesn’t have to be complicated. Remember, we are here to help! At Discover Teas, we offer several beautiful single-estate teas, as well as many incredible exclusive house blends which we hand-blend right here in our shop. When you give tea, you are also helping to provide health benefits that can improve anyone’s quality of life. Our line of WellTEAing herbal blends, also created right here in-house, is an excellent way to aid in healing of all kinds.

Want to create your own one-of-a-kind gift? You can visit either of our locations to build your own blend for friends and family. We are experts that can guide in the creative process to signify your personality, honor a special memory, or evoke joy in the season. You can even take home a pound of your own custom tea to wrap up and send to everyone as an exclusive signature blend!

So now you know why I say that tea is the gift that steeps on giving! All of us here at Discover Teas are so grateful to have the opportuni-tea to help you with all of your gifting needs. So from us to you, have a wonderful holiday and drink great teas!

It’s coming up on that time of year—running noses, colds and flu bugs; are you ready? In every family, someone usually has to take care of everyone else as they share whatever is going around. It is hard to take care of your family when you too are sick. There is no sense in waiting until you are sick. Stock up to build up your immune system before you need it; you will save time and make life easier. There is an old saying about ‘an ounce of prevention’; however, I recommend 2 ounces of prevention!

Two ounces of our DecongesTea WellTeaing blend that is. It has rooibos and honeybush, cardamom, clove, cinnamon, ginger, white and black pepper, mullein, sage, eucalyptus, and licorice root. It not only helps with allergies and blocked up sinuses, it can also help boost your immune system, clear up your lungs, as well as soothe a sore throat.

Or, perhaps our Defense Boost WellTeaing blend geared towards supporting the body’s immune system as a whole. It has a base of rooibos and honeybush blended with astragalus root, which increases white blood cell production and boosts your body’s production of natural antigens and antibodies to help fight off those pesky bugs. It also contains some orange peel as well as sage, which is another adaptogenic herb that helps reduce a variety of stresses on the body and cells.

For illnesses that settle into the throat and chest, our RespiraTea WellTeaing blend which I recently developed is a great match. This powerful blend includes herbs such as eucalyptus, mullein, marshmallow root, licorice root, and more; these ingredients have anti-inflammatory properties while also being anti-infectious, cleansing, and tonic for the lungs and respiratory system. 

We also have a great selection of single herbs like elderberries, which are anti-bacterial, anti-infectious and anti-viral. Also available is eucalyptus with a slew of benefits that were discussed in the previous ‘Ask the Herbalist’ blog. The simple truth is you have to take care of yourself first so that you can be there to take care of your loved ones. Try two ounces of prevention for self-preservation this season!
