What are the benefits of tea?
Tea is an extremely popular drink around the world and for many good reasons. There are many benefits of drinking tea that has cemented it as one of the most popular drinks worldwide. Besides serving as a source of refreshment, tea can actually improve your health. Results of studies have shown that habitual tea consumption has the ability to lower blood pressure. One of our personal favorites, green tea, is a rich source of bioactive compounds that can lessen oxidative stress and relieve inflammation among other health benefits. Tea also contains antioxidants, may reduce your risk of a heart attack, help with weight loss, protect your bones, boost your immune system, and even soothe your digestive system. Tea is a powerful herb and drink which is why we are passionate about providing you with the best herb tea and fruit tea at Sage Moon Herb Shop.
How do I prepare my tea?
How to best prepare your tea will depend on the type of tea you are brewing and your equipment, but luckily experimenting and finding the perfect brewing method is part of the experience and craft. Below are some general guidelines, but we encourage you to experiment as you please.
Use one level teaspoon of fine teas for an 8oz cup of tea
If you want fuller teas, use one rounded, heaping tablespoon
Stick within the recommended steeping times to avoid bitterness from over-steeping. If you want a stronger cup of tea, use more tea leaves.
For general steeping times and guidelines, click here.
For herbal teas - An infusion steeping is covered for 20 minutes - 2 heaping tsp/cup. For decotion for roots, bark, and berries, simmer gently for 20 minutes then steep for another 20 minutes covered - 2 heaping tsp/cup. *May vary
What is the difference between green and black tea?
Green tea and black tea are both made from the Camellia sinensis plant, but black tea is oxidized and green tea is not. Black tea is made by rolling the leaves and exposing them to air to trigger the oxidation process. This process also gives the black tea its signature color and intense flavor. Green tea is processed to prevent oxidation, thus resulting in a much lighter color than black tea. This process also gives green tea a lighter, more grassy taste. In most cases, black tea has more caffeine than green tea. Both teas contain antioxidants and have numerous health benefits. At Sage Moon Herb Shop, we offer both black and green tea, as well as chai, white tea, and more. See our full collection of teas by clicking here.
What are the benefits of burning incense?
Incense has been used by people for thousands of years because they offer various benefits and can be used for a variety of purposes. Different scents, fragrances, and aromas are used to trigger specific responses. Incense can be used to help you relax, meditate, and reduce stress and anxiety. Sandalwood and lavender are popular scents that aid in relaxation. Many religions have burned incense as a doorway to spirituality for thousands of years. Uplifting fragrances such as lemongrass, citrus scents, geranium and ylang-ylang incense can be used to stimulate creativity. Incense can even aid in fighting insomnia. Burning incense with vetiver and chamomile scents when falling asleep is safer than using a candle and can help you fall asleep. Next time you are practing mindfulness, doing yoga, praying, or meditating, light some of your favorite incense and see how it effects your practice. We also recommend lighting some incense and curling up on the sofa with your favorite tea after a hard day to relieve some stress and anxiety. At Sage Moon Herb Shop, we sell a variety of incense and incense burners. Discover a new favorite scent or order your favorites by viewing our full collection of incense and incense burners here.
