CHERYL'S TEA - CERTIFIED ORGANIC

Cheryl combined Elderberry, Rose Buds & Petals, Cinnamon Bark, and Stevia Leaf to create this warm, rosy combination that's ultra smooth-tasting with a delicate sweetness.  This tea may be enjoyed any time but is particularly soothing during Winter.  Apart from its pleasant aroma and taste, the herbs in it offer certain medicinal advantages for the cold and flu season.

ELDERBERRY helps induce sweating when we’re feverish and has been shown to be effective against many kinds of influenza viruses.

ROSE BUDS & PETALS are helpful with inflammation of the respiratory tract, sore throats, and coughs.

CINNAMON BARK assists with colds, flu, congested sinuses, and bronchitis.

STEVIA LEAF has been shown to be antimicrobial, antibacterial, and antiviral.

So, on a Winter’s eve, relax in front of the fire with a sweet cup of Cheryl’s Tea or drink cups throughout the day if under the weather with cold or flu.

A gently diluted cup (1/2 tsp steeped for 4-5 minutes for very young children); a stronger cup for adults (1 heaping tsp steeped for 12 -15 minutes). 

Please avoid use if pregnant or diabetic.
