Afternoon Tea | Organic Rooibos, Rose and Raw Honey

IMG_2118 copyx

It’s no secret how much I love herbs and concocting. I love to try different teas but the one that I keep going back to every afternoon is this very easy to make blend of tea that only contains two ingredients, three if you want more sweetness in your cup :)

Ingredients:

  • Organic Red Rooibos tea is full of anti-oxidants and has many benefits for skin, hair, nails, immunity and digestion.
  • Organic Rose Petals are a natural anti-depressant and naturally balances hormones. It can relieve stress, anxiety and insomnia.
  • Raw Honey has anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties. It promotes digestive health, is a powerful antioxidant, strengthens the immune system, eliminates allergies, and is an excellent remedy for skin wounds and all types of infections.

When Rooibos and Rose are combined, the taste is fragrant and some-what nutty. When Honey is thrown into the mix, it adds a perfect amount of sweetness to this tea!

I love drinking Tea morning, afternoon and nights but I pick each tea based on the time of day and the benefits of the herbs. The teas I drink in the afternoon are typically calming (without being too sedative) and are very balancing and fragrant. Afternoon tea is my time to wind down before the evening comes and then I usually opt for an even more relaxing tea like Chamomile and Lavender or pure Rose Tea.

I love to sit in the sun and enjoy this fragrant, calming and yet up-lifting blend of tea. I always feel more relaxed and balanced after just one cup.

I hope this post has inspired you to go make yourself a warm and healthy cup of tea. If you try this blend or have tried this blend in the past, please do share your thoughts with me! I love talking teas and could do so all day!

    Sounds delicious. What measurements do you use per 8 oz. cup of tea? Where do you get your organic Rooibos?

    • Hey! To be honest I don’t use measurements with my tea! I just take little handfuls and play around with different amounts. I like to use more Rooibos than Roses for this mixture because a little rose goes a long way. I like a lot of Rooibos in an 8oz cup of tea so I would estimate I use probably 3 tablespoons per 8 ounces and a teaspoon of roses. I get my roses on vitacost! They have a huge 1lb bag of organic rose petals and buds!

  6. Britanie, what an inspiring post – and the photos are gorgeous. Please try the tea and raw honey pairings we have curated. I know you will love them. They’re here: BeeRaw.com

  7. This looks divine! I love rooibos tea, I’m drinking a spicy chair blend at the moment. I think this might be my next blend to try.
