Have you ever struggled with things you would like to say but can’t, in a job or family situation, perhaps? These pent-up feelings or swallowed emotions can cause a particular kind of stress on the nervous system. It can be difficult to relieve the strain without a little help, which is just what this tea is designed to do. Swallowed Emotion loose-leaf tea includes oat tops, catnip, and rose petals to help prevent the need to blow up or choke on your own frustration+. Enjoy this tea blend for a bit of peace; it isn’t good to keep it all in!
How to Use:
Each container of Mockingbird Meadows’ loose-leaf tea comes with a reusable muslin tea bag, so you don’t need to worry about finding or buying a strainer. To make one cup of tea, add 2 to 3 teaspoons of loose-leaf tea to the muslin strainer, and submerge the tea bag in hot water for 10 to 15 minutes, covered. Remove the tea bag, and enjoy. To make 1 quart of tea, add 3 to 4 tablespoons of loose-leaf tea to the muslin bag and submerge in 1 quart of hot water. Steep, covered, for 10 to 15 minutes. Make your herbs last even longer by re-steeping each bag a few times before composting the spent material and then rinsing your muslin bag.
