Hey, all you awesome Boston Harbor Tea fans. I wanted to give you all a heads up. We will be CLOSED from September 17, 2017 to October 2, 2017 for some needed time off. So please get stocked up on any teas or herbs you might be needing. THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING!!!

CLEANSE: R & R ( Ream out & Rejuvenate )

This time of year is a good time to cleanse as well. Come in for your cleansing teas and herbs for the full 22 days. Fall is a great time to cleanse in order to get rid of harmful toxins in your body especially before we head into the holiday season. This can be tailored to your specific blood type or just a general cleanse package if you aren’t sure of your blood type. Certain blood types work differently and so the herbs are chosen according to what works the best for your body.

Cleansing of your body’s organs can be an effective way to help improve the body’s way of functioning properly along with relieving and possibly eliminating ailments that can become troublesome to you. A cleanse is a process of cleaning the blood by removing impurities and toxins from the liver and lymph system which play a large role in processing what is put in the body. When these two organ systems get backed up, other organs like the kidneys, gallbladder, and intestines have to process what the liver and lymph system could not. This can affect every cell in the body, both short and long term.

The best part is while you are detoxing, you can eat natural, whole foods at the same time!

The Original “Whole Foods” Diet

The answer is as old as time and never changes. It is the edicts from the Bible concerning what should be eaten and what should not be eaten. It is the original “whole foods diet”. Somehow we have allowed unnatural or modified foods to substitute for the real thing. Let’s get back to eating the way God intended.So many people are continually searching for “the” diet that will help them lose weight or make them healthy. Diets come and go. While one recommends no carbohydrates, another touts protein as the answer. What are you to believe?

This way of eating derives rules for determining clean and unclean foods from certain passages in the Bible : GenesisProverbsLukeExodusPeterLeviticusJudgesDeuteronomyIsaiah1 CorinthiansHabakkuk, and Daniel.[1]

Your body is amazing and works like a well-oiled machine if allowed to do so. Teas and herbs are natural plants that have been used for over four thousand years. The father of medicine – Hippocrates – was once quoted as saying, “Let your food be your medicine and your medicine be your food.”

I recommend a book I carry at the tea shop that goes into depth about teas and herbs by author, Victoria Zak. In her book, 20,000 Secrets of Tea, The Most Effective Ways to Benefit from Nature’s Healing Herbs, she talks about nature’s plants as healers and much more.

“Tea has been a favorite beverage worldwide for hundreds of years. A cup of tea on a rainy evening can chase the chills away and a pot of tea shared among friends can lend an air of enchantment to an afternoon. But more than that, tea can treat a variety of ailments, and with this invaluable guide, you can put the secrets of tea to work for you!”   wrote Victoria Zak in the forward.

If you want to read more on eating naturally, this is a great post about the very reasons you might want to work on changing your eating habits for a lifetime.



Genesis 9:3

          Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. And as I gave you the green plants, I give you everything.
