Description: We’re all familiar with the highway to hell. It starts with a simple night out with friends, but steadily turns into a sunrise walk home to bed. As fun as the night may have been, the road to recovery back is never a treat. The same can be said with any illness in general. Even after the common cold, the road to recovery can last days, as the body’s natural immune system works its way back into fighting form. What can be done to ease this bumpy road?
Drink more tea.TOY SOLDIER tea draws on the power of citrus and echinacea to help restore strength and nutrients to the body. According to practitioners of Ayurveda, India’s traditional medicine, citrus fruits can help the liver, cure fevers and restore acidic balance in the body. The next time you’re feeling under the weather, whether self-imposed or otherwise, we hope you’ll fire up the kettle and brew yourself a TOY SOLDIER. It will give you an uplift.
What is Ayurveda? Ayurveda is the traditional medicine of India. Ancient treatises describe how medical knowledge was first passed from the gods to humans, then refined over thousands of years on earth. In general, the idea with Ayurveda is to achieve balance between mind, body and spirit…not always an easy task in today’s busy world. (Drink tea and be at peace.) Ommm.
Hot tea brewing method: Bring fresh cold water to a rolling boil. Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon of tea for each 200-260ml of fluid volume in the teapot. Pour the boiling water into the teapot.
Cover and let steep for 3-7 minutes according to taste (the longer the steeping time the better the flavor as more fruit or herb flavor is extracted).
Iced tea brewing method (Pitcher) (to make 1 litre): Place 6 slightly heaping teaspoons into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Using fresh cold water, boil and pour 1¼cups 315ml into the pot. Steep for 5 minutes.
Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the leaves. Add ice and top -up the pitcher with cold water.
A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to increase the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water.
Note: Some premium quality teas may turn cloudy when poured over ice. This is a sign of quality and nothing to worry about.)
Iced tea brewing method (Individual Serving): Place 1 slightly heaping teaspoon into a teapot for each serving required. Using fresh cold water, boil and pour 170-200ml per serving into the pot.
Cover and let steep for 5 minutes. Add hot tea to a 375ml acrylic glass filled with ice, straining the leaves. Not all of the tea will fit, allowing for approximately an additional ½ serving.
