Drinking herbal teas goes hand in hand for most people striving to optimize their health and wellness practices. Many people are aware that all teas are not created equal and that many tea lines contain pesticides, chemical flavorings and GMO ingredients. Attempting to improve your tea quality by selecting 100% organic products can still leave you consuming harmful chemicals due to the type of bags with which you are brewing.

For many people, the New Year is about setting healthy intentions including improved nutrition habits. I have been a vegetarian for over a decade and an intentional vegan for about half of that time.
