- Creative Roots Tea Blend contributed by Cristina Brown
- Vitamin C Tea Blend contributed by Yasmeen Gay
Tea Blend: Creative Roots is available at The Ginger Tea Company
Ingredients: ginger, rosehips, rosemary, hibiscus flowers
Positive Qualities: Connection | Creativity | Self-Control | Compassion
This tea blend is designed to align four of your chakras (root, sacral, solar plexus, and heart) to connect you to your creative side and promote mental stimulation. This blend also supports your colon, urinary tract, indigestion, and heart. The ginger was chosen to address the root chakra, in an effort to keep it balanced and keep you grounded, both physically and mentally. The sacral chakra is the center of creativity and passion. By including hibiscus, the blend will assist in embracing all possibilities of living and open honest communication to guide you to your passions by balancing the sacral chakra. Rosemary’s presence is to help balance your solar plexus and reduce strain on the body and soul. Rosemary is one of my go tos for reducing anxiety and promoting mental stimulation. Last, but certainly not least, is rosehips, added to aid the heart chakra and provide space for your expression of love and forgiveness.
With all of these special herbs combined, it creates a potion for connection, creativity, love, self-control and openness.

Vitamin C Tea Blend
Equal parts of Hibiscus, Rosehips, Rose Petals & Calendula, a tsp of Ginger.
In 1 quart jar 4 Tbsp of Hibiscus blend, steep for 30 minutes, sweeten with raw honey, and drink throughout day or place in fridge and enjoy cold.
My inspiration behind this blend, during the COVID19 pandemic my intentions were to choose herbs high in Vitamin C content. In addition to refreshing herbs, such as Hibiscus, Rosehips, & Rose Petals. As well as herbs that help move the lymphatic system such as Calendula and Ginger just because it’s so amazing. Ginger has antibacterial properties, assist with fighting off germs.
