Early mornings and coffee are a perfect pair. Mid morning coffee breaks are a true delight. but an after work relaxing cup of coffee will bring a miserable night of sleeplessness. But there is nothing so cozy and comfortable than a quick break with a mug of a hot beverage.
Hot tea: includes all the ingredients I crave,a time to relax, warmth but I just don't like black tea...or green tea! I'm experimenting a have found some flavors that are favored and always on the lookout for something new.
Dandelion tea is one I read about which has fabulous benefits. Benefits include:
It improves digestion and aids weight loss.
It helps to purify the bladder and kidneys.
It reduces the risk of urinary tract infections.
It contains calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, potassium, vitamins B and C.
It helps to purify the blood, regulate blood sugar and improves blood circulation.
It helps to ease bloating and aching joints.
It helps to cure skin conditions.
