Yoga Tea & Flexibilitea with Steeping Glass from T-tox

This month I’ve really got into loose-leaf tea thanks to Johnny Hannis – aka Johnny T-tox (@JohnnyTtox on twitter). Johnny has been in the health and fitness industry for more than twelve years and is passionate about spreading the word on the benefits of loose-leaf tea. I had the pleasure of meeting Johnny – whose own story is compelling – at Club 51 in London. As Johnny explains on the T-tox website,

“ When I was 18, I developed Hydrocephalus (excess fluid on the brain), and it took me five years to fully recover. In that time, my priorities had changed somewhat and I shelved my original plans to study European Business at University. I had realised after my illness that the vast majority of us don’t appreciate our health until we lose it – a mantra that stays with me today.”

Johnny introduced me to the Yoga Tea and Flexibilitea flavours in the range before Christmas and I’ve really been enjoying them ever since – it’s become my favourite way to start the day (as well as some yoga of course :)), especially through the cold rainy mornings of the past month. I’ve been finding the process of brewing my tea in my special Tea Glass (a cross between a glass and teapot in one) quite therapeutic too.

Flexibilitea has fast become a favourite of mine

My favourite so far is the Flexibilitea (a blend of nettle, Burdock Root, Lemon Verbena , Jasmine Flowers and Marshmallow), but I’d like to work my way through the other T-tox teas in the coming months too, just to make sure :).

You can learn more about T-tox and check out some of the teas for yourself at www.t-tox.com. And for an interesting read on the differences between loose leaf teas and teabags see Johnny’s blog here.
