Soothing From The Inside Out

The smells of anise, cinnamon and herbs filled the air as I walked into the main office, each spice bringing a memory with them.   As I walked past the neatly displayed wall of teas and spices I was transported back to when I was 7 or 8 and when I would walk into the kitchen and hear my grandmother singing as she made tortillas and her famous Christmas tamales. Making my way past those memories I was greeted with a kiss and with a warm cup of tea. A room filled with strangers and yet I felt like I was back home with family.

I recently had the opportunity to visit Tadin, the tea and spice company that my grandmother trusted in making her dishes. My memories of her cooking came back so vividly as I toured the factory and saw the people who worked day-in-and-day-out to produce the quality herbs and spices my family uses. As I listened to the tour guide describe their production process and watched the women and men work, I felt a sense of pride and connection. In a time where we don’t know where our food comes from or how our food is processed it was amazing to see real people sifting through the herbs, carefully and delicately making sure that each product is perfect.

At the end of the tour, guests were invited to sit down to try 3 of their newest tea blends: Ginger, Mango, and Pineapple. As someone who grew up drinking Tadin chamomile tea I was very excited to try their newest creations. I slowly made my way to my seat and began pouring the hot water over the tea bag. I could instantly smell each ingredient as if only under extreme heat would they open up to reveal their true identity and flavor.

Needless to say that I fell in love with their new blends, what the company stands for, and the people who help bring these flavors to my family’s kitchen.

For those new to Tadin tea or if you’re curious to learn the health benefits I have provided a list of ingredients, and reasons to drink each tea.

One of the reasons I love these blends is for the richness in flavor. There is no need to add sugar!

Ginger Blend tea:

Ingredients:

  • Ginger root
  • Licorice root
  • Lemongrass leaf
  • Orange peel
  • Rosehips
  • Elder flower

Mango Green tea:

Drink anytime but especially during allergy season. Drink this tea instead of coffee or soda. This tea is a great option for anyone with diabetes or urinary problems. Drink this tea to help balance pH levels in the body and reduce acidity in the body. Give this tea to anyone with a sweet tooth.

Chamomile tea:

Drink during support digestion, and cramping. Drink this tea throughout the day to produce calming and relaxing effect in the body. Drink this tea before bed for restful sleep.

For a warm and cozy beverage just add hot water, and in the summer substitute the sugary drinks for a refreshing iced tea!
