Dragonfly Moon Tea Recipe

Dragonfly Moon Tea

The Creative (Vata) -  Balancing and grounding

The Achiever (Pitta) -  Balancing and cooling 

The Lover (Kapha) -  Balancing and detoxifying

This tea is made for women’s needs during the time of our wise woman transitioning through menopause.  Drink as much and as often as you want.  It helps reduce anxiety, balances hormones and gives you a sense of peace and well being.  This tea is amazing, sattvic and healing.

Get your herbs through a reputable herb company.   Make sure the herbs are sustainably sourced and organic.  I like Mountain Rose Herb Company and Banyan Botanicals and India Organics for my herb sources.

*Helpful hint :  I like to order my herbs in bulk and mix them in a beautiful ½ gallon jar so that the tea is ready to make anytime I want.

*this tea is delicious as is or if you want it sweet you may also try adding a little raw, organic honey (make sure your tea is warm and not hot) and a ¼ t of ghee.  If you would like it more tangy, try adding a squeeze of fresh organic lemon juice.
