Meditation tea blends

I find it best to meditate on an empty stomach or when I haven’t eaten too much, attempting to meditate after a huge dinner just makes you sleepy…

Drinking a special tea blend before you start your meditation can help you focus, here are some ideas to get you started but experiment with herbs and spices you have in your kitchen cupboards, see what works for you. Herbal tea can sometimes be a bit bland or bitter if you find it so just add a teaspoon of honey or sugar. But please be careful if you are pregnant or taking any kind of medication, check with a qualified practitioner first, herbal remedies and teas can have adverse affects when taken with some medications and some can be dangerous for pregnant ladies.

Tea (black) – Meditation


You don’t need to source herbs and flowers of course you can use readymade herbal teabags on their own or mix them up to create your own blends, liquorice and peppermint together is one of my own personal favourites. If you have home grown herbs and flowers then fantastic but if you don’t and there is an Asian supermarket near you they are brilliant for sourcing very inexpensive herbs and spices otherwise just take a look in your local market, farmers market or super market.

For all of the following recipes add your ingredients to a cup of boiling water and allow to steep for 3-5 minutes then strain.
