We've been crafting herbal teas for nearly 30 years, and 5th Chakra has become one of our most beloved blends. Especially wonderful this time of year, the sweet citrus and warming spices combined with Echinacea for immune support* and soothing marshmallow root make this tea the perfect base for a seasonal syrup. I love how the thickness of the honey and natural mucilage from the marshmallow root and cinnamon coats, soothes, and moistens irritated mucous membranes in the respiratory tract. Such a delicious remedy!
Let's make a batch to have on hand all season long. You can also create syrups at home using other tea blends. Some great choices would be Echinacea & Roots, Forests Tea, Happy Man Tea, Winter Spice Tea, or Holy Basil Chai. Imagine a beautiful little gift basket of freshly bottled herbal syrups to give to friends and family! Sweet holiday preparations...
