So my wonderful neighbors, yes them again- they graciously lent me a television series that takes place in Africa. Every time something good or bad or neutral happens on the show, the lady detective asks her assistance for a cup of bush tea. Apparently bush tea is good to calm her, it is good when she is excited, sad, bored or just plain working. I happen to love red bush tea myself. I have been drinking it for years and when I found out that it was also really good for me, well, that’s all that needed to happen before I was drinking 6-10 cups of red tea a day. Thus I feel compelled to share the health giving qualities of this delicious, aromatic, health providing herbal tea with you so that you, Ma from Africa and I can enjoy and benefit together.
So what is this bush tea all about?
You can buy it in bulk or mixed with a chai blend or just on its own in a tea bag. I like mine with a little stevia and it is divine, dessert like, with a dab of honey or maple syrup.
