CBD is touted as a soothing and relaxing product that has grown in popularity in recent years. Tea provides a convenient and calming way to take CBD oil, which interacts with our natural endocannabinoid system – a natural process that manages a host of bodily processes such as energy levels and appetite. Here are five delicious CBD tea recipes to try.
Lemon and Honey Tea
Lemon and honey is a natural cold remedy that’s renowned for its soothing properties. It’s the perfect vehicle for CBD to enhance the relaxing properties that this tea blend already provides.
Simply blend a tablespoon of honey with a cup of hot water, a cinnamon stick, and a lemon peel (you can switch it out for a tablespoon of lemon juice if you’d prefer) and steep for four to five minutes to extract the flavors. Add 7 drops of a high-quality CBD, such as Vitabiotics CBD, and enjoy.
English Breakfast Tea
You can enjoy your CBD oil in regular breakfast tea too. Simply steep black tea leaves for the desired amount of time, until your tea is the strength you like, and then add a splash of milk and 7 drops of your CBD oil. Experiment with different types of tea, such as Earl Grey tea or Assam black tea, for different flavor profiles.
Rich in antioxidants and health-promoting compounds, matcha tea provides a range of benefits and has long been used to boost wellbeing and enhance overall health. Matcha tea can be consumed in a number of ways, simply with hot water, iced, or in smoothies. But one of the most popular ways to enjoy the fresh flavors of matcha is with a creamy latte. Combine a teaspoon of matcha powder with a quarter-cup of hot water and mix until the powder has been fully blended. Then, top with warm milk, either dairy or plant-based. Add your CBD oil and any sweetener you want in your drink, such as honey or agave syrup, and mix to combine.
Peppermint and spearmint leaves are soothing for the body, particularly the digestive system, and make for a palette-cleansing drink after meals. Mint and chocolate is a classic combination that makes a wonderful pre-bedtime beverage.
Combine a teaspoon of peppermint tea leaves with hot water and steep for five minutes to extract the flavor. Strain the tea into a separate mug, removing the leaves, and stir in a teaspoon of cocoa powder. Add sweetener to taste, along with your CBD oil and a splash of milk for a creamy, comforting beverage.
Turmeric has a strong and earthy taste, but its purported benefits for our health make it a staple in many cuisines. It makes for a unique drink that’s incredibly soothing and nourishing and has a bold orange color to lift your spirits.
Simmer a tablespoon of ground turmeric powder with a quarter-cup of water until it makes a thick paste, and use one tablespoon of paste per cup of tea. Add a generous splash of milk and top up with hot water, adding in your sweetener and CBD oil before drinking.
