This was one of my favorite afternoon teas.  Gotu Kola has a clean fresh taste that keeps you healthy and clears your mind!  Gotu Kola, said to be a brain food, nourishes and balances your nervous system which can be beneficial for stress relief and calming. 

Native to Sri Lanka and South Africa, gotu kola extract and herb has been used for centuries to relieve mental fatigue, and as a tonic for overall brain and nervous system support. Rich in vitamins A, B, E, K and magnesium, researchers have found that it also contains several glycosides that exhibit healing properties.~~Organic India.


I am always on the go, so I love using my Eco Libre Tea Mug, on left.  These are great for loose leaf and tea bags!  

Since I started having tea more often, I have found a better source of energy and wellness.  My children have started to have afternoon tea with me, which I think is great family time.  We take a few minutes to talk about our day, relax, and plan our evening.  I love that we take the time to turn off all distractions and really talk with each other.  Do you need tea to do that, nope, but why not recharge your batteries with a antioxidant rich tea. 


I thought it was funny that my kids noticed that I needed to cut my nails more.  You can tell a lot about your health through your nail.  My nails have been growing stronger and faster, so that I had to start cutting them more.  We love to tickle in this house, so a few times my nails have been getting them.  I have had to cut my nails weekly and they are stronger than they have been in months.  The kids also said that I have been happier.  No one like to think of them selves as unhappy or grumpy but it happens.  I find I am better balanced when I eat and drink right.  Take a few breaks throughout your day and relax.  Grab a nice cup of tea and feel the stress of the day slip away.  Benefits to a stress relieving tea can be noticed by those around you. 

With my review I was given Mala Bead which can be worn beautifully as a necklace or bracelets.  I like to wrapped the beads around my wrist four times.  These were fun to wear and I love that the purchase helps support a small family in India. 

Tulsi Mala Beads with Silk Bag 
Valued at $7.95  


This treasure has been handmade from the stems of the organic Tulsi grown by the small family farmers that we work with in India. Wearing the beads of the Tulsi plant is believed to bring good fortune to the wearer.  Each mala has the traditional 108 beads, 108 being a symbol of living in harmony with nature.



Disclaimer:  I was given this product to review.  I am not paid for my reviews, these are my personal opinions and just enjoy bring companies that promote Organic living.

  9. The tea sounds delicious! Love that it's got a nice clean taste...well, and that it helps clear your mind! I'm a busy mommy, so I need to clean out my cluttered mind from time to time. BTW: Where did you get that Eco Libre Tea Mug? Now that I've seen it, it's a must have! It would be great for the loose Chai that I frequently pick up at the farmer's market :)
