If you can’t already tell…..Autumn is my favorite season! Why? Wine, pumpkin, hot tea, boots, sweaters, and on and on and on! Zen Bear is a Maine based company that makes such a unique product, honey tea is tea infused honey and it’s absolutely fantastic. Honey tea is made with only the best local ingredients, I don’t know about you but for me that is a HUGE deal. If you are a loyal follower of my blog, you know that locally sourced ingredients and products are incredibly important to me. Ingredients aside, Zen Bear honey tea is so delicious and incredibly easy to make. Basically, this is local honey that is infused with tea (AWESOME I know!) you add a tea-spoon to a mug of hot water and that is all. It is so easy to make and takes the hassle out of tea (there is no steeping involved). By far my favorite flavor is the chai, the flavors are so perfectly balanced and chai is like a warm hug on a chilly day. Their flavors are all unique and different, the common thread amongst them all is how delicious they are . Here is an excerpt from their page, you should read up because it is truly an amazing company.
Zen Bear Honey Tea is a Maine family company. We try to have a light step on the planet by using locally foraged and farmed herbs and honey whenever possible. Our non-local ingredients are organic and free trade as much as available. And our promo and packaging materials are recycled.
Zen Bear Honey Teas are a gently infused herb, spice, honey and tea mixture designed for glowing health and exquisite taste. Each flavor has a balance of guiding and supporting herbs and spices which enhance honey’s own benefits.
Most of all our mission is to provide a sense of comfort, well-being and happiness which we believe radiates out to raise our shared sense of peace and gratitude. If this sounds like a tall order, don’t worry. Just enjoy your tea.
Zen Bear Honey Tea is the result of years of study of the healing powers of herbs and honey. The creator of Zen Bear Honey Tea, our nephew, is a certified Acupuncturist and Doctor of Oriental Medicine. His explorations of the qualities of herbs, and their effect on the body and mind led him to create a group of golden taste treats that bring delight as well as the benefits of honey and selected blends of herbs.
Zen Bear Honey Tea, LLC is a Maine family business based in Bath, Maine.
In Oriental medicine, honey is hypotonic, meaning it draws out. It is this property of honey which makes it the perfect medium for drawing out the herbal essences and the energies of spices, and imbuing itself with their qualities.
The healthful benefits of honey and herbs are combined in flavors that are sure to delight every palate.
As always, Zen Bear Honey Tea is made with pure honey and the finest herbs and spices.
Note: Zen Bear Honey Tea is a honey treat for enjoyment, and is not meant to treat, prevent or cure any disease or condition.
I truly admire the values that Zen Bear holds and am so excited to spread the word about their honey tea. You can purchase Zen Bear honey tea on the Zen Bear website or at the Wave Hill Botanical Garden Gift Shop if you are a New Yorker like me. If you are lucky enough to live in the Maine area there are many vendors in the area that sell Zen Bear.
Keep On Keeping On
