INFORMATION: As far as states of being go, serenity ranks right up near the top of what we as human beings aspire to. For some it's a walk in the woods, taking the air while birds call from the trees. For others serenity is found within - a calming of the spirit. Throughout human history many have tried to capture the feeling of serenity and what it means to us as individuals. The ancient Greeks developed the concept of ataraxia, the absence of cares and freedom from worry. From Buddhism we get Passaddhi, serenity of the body, speech and thoughts on the path to enlightenment. More recently, Romantic poet William Wordsworth, (7 April 1770 - 23 April 1850) wrote that "poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in serenity". We couldn't have said it any better ourselves.
Unfortunately, as modern people in our busy world, finding peaceful moments in which to reflect on life and wax poetic may be a little hard to find. There are meetings to go to, sales figures to hit and clients to impress - who has time for enlightenment? Thankfully, we?ve put together this sumptuous blend of calming herbs and spices to help you slow down, get grounded and enjoy the stillness of time and place for a few moments. The next time you?re feeling the pressure of daily life and need a little retreat, let the round herbaceous notes of Serenity Wellness tea take you on a personal journey of inner peace.
HOT BREWING METHOD: Bring filtered or freshly drawn cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose tea for each 7-9oz of fluid volume into the Estero Perfect Tea Infuser. Pour the boiling water into the infuser. Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the stronger the tea).
ICED TEA BREWING METHOD: Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of loose rooibos into a teapot for each serving required. Using filtered or freshly drawn cold water, boil and pour 6-7oz per serving over the rooibos. Cover and let steep for 5 minutes. Add hot rooibos herbal tea to a 12oz acrylic glass filled with ice, straining the rooibos. Not all of the tea will fit, allowing for approximately an additional ½ serving.
