As we enter the Pitta (fire-water) season of summer, a warm cup of tea might not sound so appealing.
So, how you can enjoy the benefits of drinking herbal tea while keeping cool?
We did some experimenting on your behalf and created an easy, icy treat for summer - Tea Popsicles! Super simple, so refreshing and fun for the whole family to make and enjoy.
These wonderful popsicles can be made with any of our loose teas, and even with our Golden Milk, Masala Chai, and Herbal Coffee blends.
All you need is:
Popsicle molds (any kind will do)
Optional - Maple syrup or sweetener of choice
Optional - Milk of choice (for Golden, Chai & Herbal Coffee Pops)
How to make tea-pops:
Let it cool slightly.
Add a touch of Maple syrup or sweetener of choice.
Add milk of choice if making Golden, Chai or Herbal Coffee Pops.
Pour into molds and place in freezer.
That's it! Enjoy these summer-ready tea-pops all season long while getting the benefits of our herbal teas and spice blends while staying cool.
Ayurvedic tip: Cold/iced drinks and food are not recommended as part of everyday wellness as the cold decreases your digestive fire. However, when environment becomes very hot, it can increase Pitta (fire element). In this case, cool foods can be helpful. Please enjoy in moderation.
