WHY WE LOVE IT:
Summerville Sweet Tea is a wonderful iced tea blend! It is refreshing and sweet with spearmint, bright with citrus, and beautifully earthy with oolong and black tea. These days, we're finding it incredibly important to focus our minds on simple pleasures: afternoon iced tea in the garden or on the front porch is a ritual that brings us both energy and peace simultaneously.
Oolong and black tea are made from the Camellia sinensis plant, so they have that magic combination of compounds that both stimulates mental alertness and soothes nervous energy. Social distancing and the uncertainty we're all experiencing can feel, at times, depressing and anxiety inducing. We find tea to be a gentle and natural remedy for both of these unfavorable feelings and, while it is certainly related to how tea influences our brain's chemistry, it also stems from the mindfulness of the ritual. Preparing tea is an expression of love for whoever it is prepared for - including yourself. We hope you all are taking time to practice mindfulness and self-care: it matters to not only you but to everyone you touch.
