The effects of jet lag, which may include fatigue and irritability, generally disappear after a few days as the body's internal rhythms readjust themselves to the new time frame. Now that's a mouthful. For anyone who's ever experienced it however, coping with the symptoms of jet lag is one of the more difficult aspects of international travel. One of our favorite blends is this one here, Awake Herbal, a refreshing combination of Spearmint, Mate and Gynostemma. All three, in addition to offering high antioxidant levels, contribute to an overall sense of well being that helps keep the body alert after a long flight. Spearmint's cool, invigorating flavor keeps the mind bright. Mate, the national drink of Argentina opens the eyes thanks to its mateine content, by some counts a softer version of caffeine. Gynostemma, well known in traditional Chinese Medicine, is thought to stimulate the body and promote longevity. Taken together, all three offer one of the tastiest ways to invigorate yourself - wherever in the world you might be!

Making an amazing cup of tea requires several things. High quality tea, filtered or freshly drawn cold water, correct water temperature, time of infusion, and filters/infusers. Unfiltered water or too hot of water can ruin the best of teas. Always use filtered or freshly drawn cold water. Any flavor from water treatments or heavy minerals such as lime or calcium can taint the water. Brew at the ideal temperature. Too hot of water can scorch the leaves and produce a bitter brew. If you find that the tea is still bitter following the recommended brewing temperature, try lowering the brew temperature another 5 to 10 degrees. Use infusers that allow the tea leaves to fully expand and has full contact with the water. Ditch the tea bags. Know the steeping time for your tea. Too long of steeping can make your tea bitter and undesirable. Too short of time will make a weak tea. Don’t make tea in the microwave.
We strongly recommend using filtered or freshly drawn cold water brought to a rolling boil when brewing all types of tea. Today’s water has been known to carry viruses, parasites and bacteria. Boiling the water will kill these elements and reduce the potential incidence of water-borne illness. Cool the water to the ideal brewing temperature before brewing.
