American Wildflower is not strictly a bed time tea, but it is one of our favorites to drink at the end of the day to help boost relaxation, to soothe a tired body, and to get into the right mindset for a peaceful night's sleep. It is refreshing with mint, sweet with vanilla, bright with lemongrass, and rounded out with earthy and floral chamomile notes. We love this blend served hot with a spoonful of Mesquite Honey.

Reasons to love hibiscus
1. IT REDUCES RISK OF SICKNESS AND DISEASE
This deliciously tart flower is rich in powerful antioxidants: antioxidants help to combat oxidative stress by interacting with free radicals in a way that makes them stable (hence preventing tissue and cell damage). Oxidative stress is associated with many ailments and diseases including diabetes, heart disease, atherosclerosis, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, and cancer. Free radicals aren't entirely avoidable, but risk of harm can be reduced by the intake of antioxidants. Polyphenols are a well-known antioxidant class that combats free radical damage. Hibiscus is rich in the polyphenol anthocyanins, which has shown to have powerful anti-cancer effects. Also, several test tube studies suggest hibiscus extract inhibits cancer cell growth in various types of cancer. Hibiscus is also high in vitamin C and research suggests it can fight bacteria.
WHY SLEEP MATTERS
Sleep is SO important for our overall well being. In the book Why We Sleep the author, Matthew Walker, explains that sleep helps us to consolidate memories, learn, and prepare our brain to function optimally for a day full of complex decisions, social interactions, and emotions.
In essence, sleep nourishes the mind!
Further, he explains:
Adequate sleep can help us maintain a slim figure, curb empty cravings, and, of course, increase energy during the day. Consistent, restful sleep can also decrease risk of disease including cancer, heart disease, and neurological degenerative diseases. Sleep also improves mood, encourages creativity, and helps us focus and learn more efficiently throughout the day.
So, if you can, soak it up! You deserve to feel healthy, happy, and function your very best each day!

AMERICAN WILDFLOWER WITH LAVENDER
RELAX & REJUVINATE
Ingredients: peppermint, lemongrass, vanilla rooibos, & chamomile
This blend is an overall wellness booster! Each of these ingredients are anti-inflammatory, which means they can help reduce risk of disease as well as alleviate general aches and pains. The herbs in this blend can combat stomach and sinus issues, boost immunity, soothe tired muscles and joints, and promote restful sleep.
If you struggle to wind down after a long day, try incorporating this blend into your evening routine - you might find your mood elevated, your night more restful, and feel generally better overall!
Many people know lavender's power to promote relaxation and induce sleep, but did you know it is rich in anti-oxidants and is also anti-inflammatory?
Try adding 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of Lavender to 1 to 2 teaspoons of American Wildflower.

Hello! My name is Maggie! I am a Marine Scientist that was moved to the New Mexican desert with my family by the Air Force! That move was never in my plan, even in my wildest dreams, and I felt lost in the desert for awhile! Meeting the founding owners of Old Barrel Tea Company and falling in love with the store allowed me to find an oasis in the desert! I had no idea what loose leaf tea was, but now I believe in this company and the product! I hope that I can extend some of the love and knowledge with all of our followers and readers!
