This week for 1 minute videos,

I’m focusing on some of the world’s healthiest teas, beginning with my personal favorite:

(HINT: It’s the base for the detox tea I’ve been drinking!)


I lived in England for almost 4 years. During that time, I learned to love their wonderful and delicious British tea, realizing just how poorly we Americans make tea. We’re coffee drinkers after all! I actually don’t like coffee! I’m a tea drinker all the way and always have been.  Upon my return to the states, I was spoiled by the robust and delicious nature of British tea and missed it dearly. I did find some actual British tea in an international grocery store, for which I was extremely grateful. Then I had to give up (or at least cut back on) caffeine, and decaf black tea just isn’t the same.

(I’m a bit of a tea snob if you can’t tell).

In one of my first courses in school, I learned of the health benefits of herbal tea.  One of the assignments in that class was to research different herbal teas, try some of them and report on the experience, including the health benefits. I tried MANY, MANY, MANY, but found them all to be weak, and flavorless, tasting remarkably like hot water, compared to the robust black tea to which I had become accustomed.

That’s when I discovered ROOIBOS TEA.

The taste is very similar to black tea, but with a slightly woodsy taste. It’s delicious! AND, it’s super healthy and considered by many to be healthier than green tea, but without the caffeine. It has become part of my daily routine, and has replaced my soda addiction!

(A HUGE step! If you are a follower of mine, you’ll know just how huge!)

Here’s the 1 minute video for today, highlighting the benefits of Rooibos Tea.

Until next time…

Namaste my friends.
