MICOPEIA’s Cool Honey for the Summer Antioxidant Tea (Blue Cornflower, White Chrysanthemum, African Rooibos, Honeybush, Dried Apple)
It is time to celebrate those May flowers and the coming months ahead! This is why we are taking time to treat ourselves to a cup of MICOPEIA's new Cool Honey for the Summer Antioxidant Tea! A naturally sweet, earthy and slightly nutty tea with robust notes of honey and apple, this wonderfully light and refreshing summer anytime tea truly represents positive hope for the future, with the stunningly-beautiful Blue Cornflower as the blend's vibrant standout herb.
What makes this tea so special?
In some cultures, Blue Cornflower is seen as a reminder of the fullness of nature's life cycle, making it's annual appearance alongside White Chrysanthemum during the month of May. Both Vitamin C and A are found in high concentrations within Chrysanthemums, and both Vitamins are crucial for immune health.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, both the Chrysanthemum and Blue Cornflower are considered herbs that are 'Cool' by nature, meaning they help dispel excessive and/or stagnant heat in the body; hence the use of "Cool" in this tea blend's name! These flowers also serve as a strong foundation for a tea to drink on those hot summer days.
To complete the Red, White and Blue underlying color theme, supporting our aforementioned floral herbs in this tea blend are the globally famous herbs African Red Rooibos and Honeybush; in fact, Red Rooibos and Honeybush are cousins within the same family! Both Caffeine-free, these teas pack quite a powerful punch of antioxidants, while also being a source of some unique polyphenols; together, these protective compounds work in our bodies to help protect us against free radicals! Free radicals can cause damage that leads to conditions like diabetes, heart disease and even cancer.
