Brewing Your Tea
Tea is so magical! Even if you are not normally a tea drinker, I highly recommend that you try it for this exercise. You can always add honey or sweetener to it – You Make the Rules!
Your Intentions Box came with a tea infuser for those who are not used to drinking loose leaf tea. I don’t use an infuser but do whatever feels best for you. The Butterfly Garden Tea packet in your Intentions Box is meant for the perfect cup of tea, but because of the high-quality ingredients, you can easily brew a second cup with same packet.
To steep your tea;
- Put the contents of the tea packet into your favorite cup/mug.
- Boil your water then add to the cup/mug
- Our tea purveyor suggests 5-7 minutes of steep time for herbal teas.
- The Butterfly Pea Flower in the tea will turn a vibrant blue color as it steeps
- You can add lemon after it steeps, it will turn this tea a bright purple color

To me, there's nothing that sets the mood for intention-setting more than a warm mug of tea in my hands!
