Yuletide Tea is chock full of winter wonderland plants and berries.

It just may bring great tidings of joy and comfort on your winter's eve. 

 

Pine is the base of this bright tea. 

 

"The volatile oils found in pine, spruce and fir needles, bark, sap and resin are used by herbalists and aromatherapists to help stimulate the respiratory system, decongest the lungs, boost the immune system, balance hormones, and bring circulation and warmth to cold muscles and stiff joints. And as anyone who has smelled their fresh-cut branches already knows, their enchanting fragrance is a medicine all its own, helping calm the nervous system, reduce stress and cortisol, revive stamina and provide feelings of peace and wellbeing.

 

Their needles are high in vitamin B, C, A, and iron and a slew of minerals, antioxidants, and flavonoids, and according to various studies they contain anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, cardiovascular-protecting, triglyceride-reducing properties as well. Conifer needles are one of the richest sources of polyprenols which stimulate the immune system, cellular repair and contain antiviral properties – in particular against influenza viruses! (Which all goes a long way towards explaining their ancient reputation as a cure-all for practically anything!)

Plus they’re delicious! Citrusy and herbaceous, studies have identified over 39 flavour compounds in pine needles and over 81 in pine bud/tips alone! "
