Need An Energy Boost?

Some days I feel like I’m dragging my body around from place to place. I wake up tired because I stay up late reading at night and just can’t put my book down.

I don’t drink the energy drinks that are so popular now days. Those drinks are unhealthy and I like to choose a more natural route. I do enjoy coffee, but I also like to look outside the ‘coffee pot box’ for other natural ways to boost my energy.

BLUE TEA – You ask, what is blue tea? I did too so don’t feel bad. A girlfriend introduced me to blue tea a couple of years ago. Since I enjoy tea, I was eager to try it!

Being dehydrated can also cause fatigue. Drinking alcohol and not enough water if one cause of dehydration.

What I’ve learned is, Blue Tea, made from the butterfly pea flower, not only hydrates but the antioxidant compounds that give the drink it’s beautiful hue may help protect against the harmful effects of free radicals.

The flower is also considered a memory and intelligence booster. That’s a win-win in my book! At my age, my memory is slowly failing me.

This tea is wonderful either hot or cold and you can compliment the mild earthy taste by adding ginger or lemongrass. You can also add lemon juice, but don’t be alarmed when it turns the tea a shade of purple! I was shocked, but I love the color purple, so that didn’t stop me from drinking it.
