Face it, no matter how positive a person you are, 2020 has caused us all to have those times when we’re simply not in a great mood. After all, bad days happen.
Tea has always been surrounded by myth, mystery, and legend. Even today, rumors run rampant across the internet on the magical curative powers of tea.
Though not all have been scientifically proven, you cannot deny the medical, emotional and physical health benefits that can be provided by this herbal concoction.
