So I created this amazing tea the other day and it is quickly becoming a Featherheart Trading Co. favorite. Fashioned from oatstraw, cinnamon and cardamom -- three of my favorite flavor profiles, after a touch of honey this tea tastes a lot like a delicious oatmeal cookie. And it smells like one too. What's more, oatstraw improves coordination, bone density, length of attention span, balance, memory, clarity, ease of achieving meditative and conscious dream states and overall calmness and centeredness. It’s high in calcium, iron, phosphorus, B vitamins, potassium, vitamin C and many amino acids. And as if that's not enough, oatstraw strengthens and nourishes the nerves and nervous system, making this a great tea to drink during times of emotional stress, breakdowns and breakthroughs. In addition, it’s good for the heart, clearing your blood vessels of fatty deposits, lowering cholesterol and stabilizing blood sugar. And don’t be surprised if a tea of oatstraw makes you extra amorous. . . it's considered by some to be an aphrodisiac, especially if you're of the male persuasion.
And of course it's named after the film Harold and Maude in honor of the scene when Maude offers Harold a cup of oatstraw tea. Classic movie. Classic tea.
