Getting Ready for Spring!! It’s Lemonade Time

Spring is finally in the air, so it’s time put away the winter gear and bring out the floral patterns. Let’s be honest, this past  winter was brutal for some of us, which makes the sight of warm temperatures and spring flowers even more pleasant. Now that you’ve survived winter, let’s bring out the Lemonade!  Recently on my Youtube channel, I began making different blends of teas using citrus, peppermint, and hibiscus. I found that combining these flavors, can make any non-teas drinker hooked.

If your not an avid tea lover, I have the perfect company that will make your  tea experience ongoing. Our tea makers at The Tea Spot supplies tea blends to support your everyday need, along with tea steepers, and stylish to-go bottles to accompany you anywhere. Here is my visual experience using tea leaves from my favorite spot.

Before you steep the tea, you need a steeper. The Tuffy Steeper is so cute and fits in any average size tea cups with ease. Thankfully, the tea spot has an assembly of steeper ware and infusers to fit in any cup you choose. You will see me use the tuffy steeper  in the video below.

The Pink Rose Lemonade is the highlight! Usually, I don’t like to drink cold teas without sweeteners, but I had to make an exception. I used the steeper to strain the tea leaves, added ice cubes and made something completely new. In the video, I will show you a different way of adding your own twist for the perfect spring/summer drink.

This is my rescue remedy for taming my sweet tooth. Let’s be honest, sometimes the urge to eat a whole box of chocolate comes out of nowhere, so this tea will keep the blood sugar in check.

1.Organic Throat Clarity-Leaves

Magic hidden in a steel tin. Before we begin our review, I would first like to say that out of all the tea samplers, the organic throat clarity is my favorite. Ok, maybe I’m just being biased, because of my dry throat and the tea is for throat clarity. At first, I did have some reservation regarding the taste. Let’s be honest, usually herbal teas doesn’t always have pleasant flavors.

Moving on, the actual description regarding the organic throat clarity tea is accurate. The first herbal essence that I noticed was the chamomile and the peppermint. Naturally chamomile has a very smooth and cozy taste, while the peppermint releases an euphoric cooling menthol’s that eases aches of a sore throat.
