Staying hydrated during busy times + a sneak peak at our new logo!

Staying hydrated as the weather warms up and we find ourselves hurtling at a crazy pace towards Christmas can be hard.  To combat dehydration brain I've been making up big jugs of cool herbal tea blends to sip on throughout the day.  I like to drink the tea at room temperature, but if you're a cold drink person you could refrigerate the jug of tea and sip it cold throughout the day too.  Yum!

Pile 2 heaped teaspoons of the tea leaves in a teapot, fill it with boiled water and steep the tea for 2 minutes.

Once steeped, pour off the tea into a heatproof jug through a tea strainer.  I then refill the teapot with more boiled water and make a second infusion with the same tea leaves, steep that for about 4 minutes, and then pour that into the tea jug too.

This is a 50/50 blend of organic peppermint leaves and chamomile flowers that I have made up in a little container for easy tea preparation.  Green tea also works nicely (I favour Genmaicha).

It's great to sip on all day to keep me cool, calm and hydrated.
I spy with my little eye something looking like our ALL NEW LOGO nestled prettily against one of our soaps.  Exciting!  More to come on that later.  Stay tuned!
