They are also rich in vitamins and minerals, such as iron, calcium, and magnesium, which contribute to improved vitality and immune function.
  • Meadowsweet Flowers: Meadowsweet contains natural salicylates, which have pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory effects. This makes it a gentle, natural remedy for headaches and minor aches. Additionally, meadowsweet supports digestive health and can help soothe an upset stomach, making it a perfect evening tea ingredient.

Blackcurrant leaves also have anti-inflammatory properties and can help improve circulation. They are known to promote relaxation and reduce stress, aiding in a peaceful night’s sleep.

Why cold-brew tea?

Cold-brew tea offers several advantages over traditional hot-brewed tea that is then cooled down:

  1. Smooth Flavor: Cold brewing results in a smoother, less bitter flavor as the tea infuses slowly over time without the harshness of high temperatures. This preserves the delicate flavors of the herbs.
  2. Less Caffeine: The cold-brew process typically extracts less caffeine compared to hot brewing, making it a better option for evening consumption.
  3. Hydration: Cold-brew tea is naturally refreshing and hydrating, making it an excellent choice for keeping hydrated, especially in warmer weather.
  4. Convenience: Cold-brew tea is easy to prepare and can be made in advance, allowing you to enjoy a ready-to-drink beverage whenever you desire.
