Lavender Chamomile Iced Tea

This Lavender Chamomile Iced Tea is sure to quench your thirst without caffeine. What I love the most about this tea is how completely relaxing it is to enjoy after an afternoon out in the garden. This tea helps reduce stress by settling your nervous system and calming your digestive system. Lavender promotes relaxation, and chamomile eases tension and supports digestion. This recipe is steeped in flavor, not too sweet or bitter.

This Lavender Chamomile Tea is sure to quench your thirst.

Honey Ginger Iced Tea

This Honey and Ginger Iced Tea is simple to brew, makes enough to quench the thirst of you and several friends and requires only a few ingredients. A perfect and refreshing tea drink to prepare for a day on the beach or at night by the campfire.

Honey ginger iced tea is refreshing and so quick to make.

National Iced Tea Day Celebration

Historically, in the south, we like our tea a tad sweet. In the south, we enjoy “Sweet Tea” year-round, and it’s incredibly delicious. We offer these recipes with a nod to our southern roots, but in moderation in the interest of good health!

Apple Cider Vinegar Honey Detox

The Bees Knees Honeybush Tea

We offer a small, specially curated line of teas that pair well with honey and can quickly be served hot or cold. One of our favorite things to do is make any of the teas hot, add some honey and some cashew and coconut milk, and serve over ice. It’s as satisfying as it is delicious.
