New Year, New Teas!
We welcome 2018! This year at East our goal is to provide you with even more wellbeing! Not only did we begin selling grab and go food items from our friends over at Bliss Cafe (check out our stocked refrigerator case next time you are in the tea room), but we also added some new teas to the menu.
With careful consideration, we have added four wellness teas to our menu -
Adapt, Allergy, Radiance, and Serenity all brought to us by Vana Tisanes.
Adapt blend is a combination of adaptogenic herbs that creates equilibrium within the body. Adaptogens are herbal substances that enhance your ability to resist stress, anxiety, trauma and fatigue – slowly and gently, without jolts or crashes. Some of the adaptogenic herbs in the blend include:
Ashwagandha (Withania Somnifera) – Reduces Cortisol which is known as the stress hormone.
Eleuthro – (Eleutherococcus senticosus) – Boosts immunity and reduces fatigue.
Holy Basil or Tulsi (Ocimum sanctum L.) - Reduces stress and anxiety and boosts the adrenals when they are fatigued.
Licorice (Glycyrrhiza Glabra) – Native to Europe and Asia, Licorice root is sweet so it is often added to herbal tea blends. It can speed the repairs of the stomach lining and sooth gastro intestinal problems. It relieves the adrenal glands that produce stress.
Schizandra – High in anti-oxidants, is fights free radicals. It is great for liver health as it helps to slow the hardening of the arteries and balances blood sugar.
Our Allergy tea blend will help ease irritation from your body’s reaction to allergies so you can go on about your day with more clarity. Beneficial plants like peppermint, turmeric, marshmallow, and other wonderful remedies offer antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory effects that work as an expectorant to help clear the lungs and reduce sinus inflammation.
Serenity wellness tea contains herbs that have mild sedative effects towards the central nervous system. This allows one to relax by quieting the mind and body, especially after a long day of stimulation and energetic activity. With herbs like chamomile, lavender, and lemon balm, Serenity not only encourages the quality of a deep rest, but it also allows you to fall asleep faster. Enjoy a cup right before bed!
Radiance herbal tea blend has the ability to fight free radicals, help soothe damaged skin while providing anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, anti-toxic, anti-bacterial and antiseptic properties.
Radiance encourages the growth of new skin cells due to herbs like dandelion root, nettle, and burdock root to draw out impurities and hydrate the skin.
We hope that you find some time in the new year to try our new teas as a resolution to yourself and your health!
