Recipe to make Iced Tea Lemonade
In a 16 ounce glass mix 12 ounces of iced tea with the juice of a half of a lemon (black tea works great, but you can experiment with herbals and flavored teas as well. Some of our favorites are made with Black Mango Tea or Ayurvedic Pitta Tea.) Warm 2 Tbs of honey and stir into tea/ lemon mix (10 seconds in the microwave works great). Pour mixture over ice and serve with a lemon wedge. Try a rock sugar rim for a sweet addition!
Tips for making iced tea: Brew your tea twice as strong if you are brewing it to be iced. For one serving of iced tea, use 2 TBS of loose-leaf tea to make your infusion. For a pitcher of iced-tea, use a half cup of loose-leaf tea.

Is Your Skin Itchy, Irritated, or Dry?
This soothing, anti-aging powerhouse can help!
Chamomile Tea is well-known for its calming, stress-reducing effects and is widely used as a night-time tea to promote sleep. But did you know that Chamomile is just as calming for the skin?

Packed with anti-oxidants, chamomile can help protect the skin from free radical damage and suppress the visible signs of aging.
Chamomile is gentle on sensitive or fragile skin which makes it ideal for use after waxing and to ease a diaper rash, sunburn, bedsore, or hemorrhoids.
Brew a cup of Chamomile tea and saturate a soft cloth with the infusion. Apply to the affected area for up to 10 minutes. Chamomile’s anti-septic properties make it a great addition to home-made cleansers and soaps as well.

Have Puffiness & Dark Circles Around The Eyes?
Here is a fix for tired eyes: Place used tea bags in refrigerator to chill- Black, Green, Oolong, and White teas will all work. Squeeze out the chilled bags, lie down, and place over the eyes for about 10 minutes. Caffeine helps to eliminate dark circles and puffiness by shrinking the blood vessels in the skin.
