How do I brew the teas?
Children should never brew water or be near any hot beverages!
With adult supervision, brew the water to the point when the water it's just starting to bubble, then turn off the kettle or stove. Add the tea bag to the tea pot or tea cup, and wait about 3 minutes - 5 minutes if you would like a stronger brew. Then, after making sure the tea has cooled enough for children to drink, you can enjoy warm, with a bit of honey, or even chilled over ice. If it is taking too long to cool down, feel free to add one ice cube to help ring the temperature down.
How do I introduce teas to my kids?
If your kids are used to drinking more sugary drinks, it might be a bit hard to transition them to teas. Although naturally sweet, they will not be as sweet as juices.
The trick is to add honey - if the child is over 1 year or older - or a sweetener such as monk fruit, and eventually lower the amount of sweetener until they can have natural teas.
Also, offering a treat such as a graham cracker with the teas will make the experience even better.
Serving the tea over ice is also a great way to introduce them to teas, as they are refreshing and satisfying!
