Gluten Free Tea
I have recently moved and when I was in the process of packing my tea, I realized that I may be a little tea obsessed. You see, I have ALWAYS loved tea. I was totally the tea party with my grandmother kinda girl. When I got older though, I wouldn't buy it as often because lets face it, some teas can be a bit pricey. Fortunately, I have found so many on sale, which has fueled my addition.
I enjoy tea for a variety of reasons. Since I do not really drink sodas or sugary drinks apart from the occasional iced tea or GF DF hot cocoa, tea is my go to comfort drink. I also like more holistic approaches and think that tea has great properties for various ailments. Its great hot, cold, sweetened or unsweetened (which iw mainly how I roll). I usually only purchase tea that is clearly labeled gluten free, but I have a few that are not labeled but found out they were gf after calling the companies. So lets look at my tea shall we? Oh and don't judge me. I know I have a problem :).
Traditional Medicinals has awesome natural, herbal teas. Many are organic and I really like the flavor combinations. As I said before, I like to try holistic methods. I was sick earlier this year and I purchased a cold care sample pack. I fell in love with the teas and began purchasing them as there were on sale. The Throat Coat & Breath Easy teas are truly soothing. The Cold Care P.M. is very relaxing and helped me rest. For stomach upsets, the Gas Relief tea is very helpful. I must admit that I find the Roasted Dandelion Root to be quite strong and rather disgusting. I still take it however because it is good for digestion. This is one of the few teas that I own in which I feel that I HAVE to sweeten it in order to drink it. The Echinacea Plus has a nice flavor and the Easy Now tea is amazingly comforting. My husband actually combined it with peppermint to make ice tea and it was fabulous! The GF statement here: http://www.traditionalmedicinals.com/faqs
Most of the Celestial Seasonings teas are gluten free. There are a few however that you need to watch out for. I LOVE the sleepytime teas. My grandmother would make it for me before every time I spent the night at her house. I have the regular, but forgot to take a picture. Again, I use these when I am feeling under the weather. After moving to Louisiana, I get the most horrific sinus infections that eventually lead to a sore throat and other symptoms. I find these both helpful and affordable. I always find them on sale and use coupons for additional savings.
