Recently, I stocked up on a few new honeys and teas. I love tea, especially the herbal varietals and I'm spoiled with a great tea shop not far from my office, Teaism. I've frequented the Teaism tea shop & restaurant for years now, and I think it's time to bring the goodness home.
My tea of choice is hibiscus & ginger. Apparently, hibiscus tea is known for its ability to lower blood pressure. And with my family history, and stresses of being a working-mama, I can take all of the help I can get. For the next few months I'll be drinking a mug of tea in the evening and monitoring my blood pressure levels. We'll see if there are any measurable changes.
What's tea without a little nosh? Every once in a while (on the weekend) I pair my tea with a snack. Cureently, I'm partial to Effie's Oatcakes & Chipotle Chèvre these days. This combo balances out the zippy hibiscus & ginger tea quite nicely.
