Herbal tea has cleansing properties, improves metabolism, and it is also very fragrant and tasty. But do you know how to use it?
If you find it hard to get up in the morning and in the evening you cannot fall asleep, do not rush to get hold of coffee or sleeping pills. What you need is some herbal tea. For example, stevia will wake you up and hawthorn or acacia will help you to sleep.
It is important to note that different temperature tea works differently. For example, cold black currant leaves and sage tea helps quench thirst on hot summer day, however when hot it promotes sweating and it is more suitable, for example, for patients with colds.
To maximize its usefulness, it is necessary to know all about brewing it. Decoctions should be prepared in the hot water baths. All the herbs that need to boil for a long period of time (10-15 minutes) must be prepared in glass, enamel and porcelain vessels (the point is that when in contact with metal tea loses a large part of its beneficial properties).
Preparing chopped fruit and root liquors (such as rosehip), it is recommended to brew it and keep it warm for several hours. Rosehip fruit should be cut into 4 pieces, then you pour a glass of boiling water and add 5 g lemon juice. This tea should be boiled for 10 minutes in an enamel bowl with a lid.
It is important to take time to drink herbal tea, because some of them tones, and the other have a calming effect. For example, strawberry leaf, clover blossoms and lavender tea is best taken in the morning. Raspberry leaf, chamomile, lemon balm tea, etc. have a soothing effect and therefore it better to drink it in the evenings.
