Cravings Buster Herbal Tea Recipe and Tea Time Bottle Giveaway

As you might know, I’ve cut coffee out of my life for various health reasons and am increasing the amount of tea I drink. Herbal tea is a great option because it allows us to reap the benefits of unique to each herb. It’s a way of giving yourself a natural, medicinal boost without a lot of stress or hassle.

There are many wonderful herbal teas available nowadays, but it’s also easy to make your own.

Today I want to share a simple recipe I use to help satisfy my sweet tooth and keep cravings at bay. I call it Cravings Buster Tea. 

Cravings Buster Tea has three ingredients. If I could add one more, it would be a little Ashwagandha, to help manage stress. (I’ll experiment with that and let you know how it goes!).

Here’s what you’ll need to make my Cravings Buster Tea Recipe:

  • Chamomile – promoting a feeling of peace and calm, since we all know how stress seems to add to sugar cravings!
  • Hibiscus – added because of its subtle sweetness, this herb tastes like a sweet treat. Hibiscus also provides a beautiful red color.
  • Nettle leaves – it is believed that nettle can help reduce inflammation and that it may be helpful in treating type-2 diabetes. I’ve included it for those reasons, but also because of its cleansing properties. Another option would be to use alfalfa, which is also believed to help support healthy blood sugar levels.
  • 1/8- 1/4 Measuring cup
  • Bowl and spoon
  • Tea Strainer – I use the Tea Time Glass Travel Bottle from Full Circle.

How to Make Cravings Buster Tea

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup chamomile, dried
  • 1/4 cup hibiscus, dried
  • 1/8 cup nettle, dried

Method:

Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Transfer to a glass storage jar with a tight-fitting lid. Store out of direct sunlight.

To use: Add 1 tablespoon of tea mixture to 1 cup of hot water. Let steep for 3-5 minutes.

You may add a little stevia for extra sweetness if desired.

Here’s a quick video that shows just how easy it is to make:

It turns a beautiful deep purplish-red color. Everyone will be asking what you are drinking!

About the Tea Time Bottle. . .

It’s always fun to discover new inventions that support a healthy lifestyle. The 19-ounce Tea Time Bottle is one of these.

I was thrilled to find the eco-friendly brand, Full Circle, and their Tea Time bottle (as well as many green and natural household products – I actually use their scrubbing brushes and have my eye on their kitchen towels as well!).

Here’s a quick video showing you how to use it:

The Team Time Bottle is something I can use every day. It’s fun, pretty to look at, and makes it easy to stay hydrated.

The bottom of the bottle holds a removable strainer that holds bagged tea, lemon, fresh mint leaves, or loose tea.

Once you’ve filled the strainer, just add the lid, then flip the bottle over and pour in the hot water.

The Tea Tie bottle is made from heat-resistant borosilicate glass and is BPA free.

The cork sleeve provides insulation but can be removed fro washing.

I love that you can drink from all sides of the top lid, making it easy to drink with one hand. There’s no twisting and turning to find the spout, making it a great travel mug.

The lid is so well-designed, it’s almost impossible to spill any liquid from this bottle.

I even put the bottle flat on its side, and it didn’t leak (not that I would recommend doing that! Just saying.)

The Tea Time Bottle comes in a variety of colors, I have it in Elderberry (because you know I love my purple!).

  1. I like almost any herbal tea. I made one with tons of stuff for bedtime, chamomile, lavender, nettles, peppermint, hibiscus, I can’t remember what else I threw in there. So good!

  2. I have not seen these bottles before. They look like what I have been looking for to take my tea to go. The Nordic is my favorite.

  3. I am going to make your Cravings Buster tea. It sounds so good. One of my fave teas is chamomile. The Tea Time bottles are so cool! I would love the elderberry color.

  4. Thanks for the cravings buster tea recipe. I look forward to trying it because I certainly need it! The tea time bottle looks fantastic and I appreciate the opportunity to win one. I use loose teas regularly so this would be great to have. The Nordic looks awesome.

  5. I had a homemade nursing tea blend years ago that I loved. I cant remember where i got it and have never found another i liked as well.

  6. I love to drink tea from tea cups and imagine myself in the shade on the veranda. But, this Tea Infuser Bottle is much more practical for my busy life. It looks amazing!

  7. I would love the elderberry color. It’s really pretty. Thank you for letting us know about full circle, I really like having glass as a choice for my drink bottle.

  8. Honestly, I am a big coffee drinker. But because it goes in the way of my hydratation, I would love to cut back on coffee and increase tea perhaps. I mostly drink mixtures for breastfeeding mothers.

  9. What a great, little, and efficient luxury bottle! I have grown my own chamomile but I like to add hybiscus for the color and the sweetness. I love the idea of adding nettle. Would love to get one of these for sure. Even better for gift giving!

  10. I would choose the elderberry color. I’m having a lot of gum pain right now so I’m currently obsessed with Earl gray.
