Super-powered sobriety drink

It's the heat of summer and I've been experimenting with some great, healthy non-alcoholic beverages to enjoy. This one is my favorite so far.

Angela's Super Powered Sobriety Drink

3 green tea bags (I like Good Earth green tea with lemongrass)
3-4 chamomile tea bags
honey to taste
2 tbsp. dried lavender blossoms

Steep the tea bags for 15-20 minutes, add honey to sweeten. Add lavender blossoms for up to, but not more than, 5 minutes. The lavender will scorch if left longer than that and you'll lose the great taste. Pour through a strainer and add water to 1/2 gallon. Refrigerate or pour over ice.

This tea is yummy, yummy and is great for you. The green tea is loaded with antioxidants and the chamomile and lavender are excellent nervous system soothers. Honey has enzymes that sugar doesn't and your body will just love them.

Enjoy in good sobriety! P.S. Use organic whenever possible!!

I am loving this information. I have tried the tea and I have to agree, it does more than most herbal teas for me. Your blog recognizes that our recovery from addictiions of any stripe takes a host of resources, Thanks for that acknowledgement and the very useful information I see here.

I know that some of my best medicine does not show up in the Big Book and that Bill W. was beating the bushes for every additional resource he could find for enhancing his spiritual growth. As it says in 'Keys to the Kingdom', "we must have a program of recovery that allows for llimitless expansion."

I need to put my bare feet on the ground every day (even in winter) and wander in the mountains where I come across Ponderosa pines, cedars, larch, service berries and bear scat. Works for me.

Thanks for carrying the message in such an inspiring way!
