Once you have the right ingredients, you can make many different hemp tea types that will give you the best flavor and health benefits. It’s not just for anxiety and weight loss–it has so many other benefits as well, such as reducing chronic inflammation, improving digestion, and keeping your heart healthy.
Hemp Tea in a Cup
This is the simplest way to make a cup of hemp tea. Add a tablespoon of the actual hemp plants or their powder to boiling water. Let it steep for five minutes and then strain out the leaves and flowers. This is a straightforward method, but it still has the health benefits of the other types listed here. It also maintains all of the different flavors. If you want to make it more flavorful, you can add some honey or fruit juice to get more taste out of it.
Chai Tea with Hemp Leaves
You can mix hemp tea into your favorite chai blend for an added twist that will taste delicious and help you relax after a long day at work. To make this, you have to mix green, unroasted hemp leaves with chai spices. You can also use the chai ingredients to add more flavor. This will give a little bit of spice and a fresh taste that will be refreshing on a warm summer day.
Hemp Tea Smoothie
This is similar to traditional hemp tea but in a thicker form. To make this, just put the hemp leaves or flowers into your electric blender and add some soy or dairy milk for creaminess, as well as fruit juice for natural sweetness and flavor. You can also use hemp milk if you like. It’s not an exact science, so play around to find which flavor is your favorite. This will give you a thicker, smoother drink that tastes great and is a great way to get all the health benefits.
Hemp Tea with Mango
This is a great way to get the health benefits of tea and add mango to your diet. To make this recipe, combine two cups of water with four tablespoons of dried hemp leaves or flowers in an electric kettle. Boil it for about eight minutes. Add one teaspoon of powdered ginger and one teaspoon of powdered cinnamon into it and let it steep for another five to eight minutes. Add a cup of fresh-squeezed mango juice to give it some sweetness and flavor, strain out the plant material using cheesecloth or coffee filter paper, serve hot or cold over ice. You can also use green tea if you want instead, but this will be a delicious twist on that as well.
Hemp Tea for Insomnia
Sometimes it’s hard to get a good night’s sleep. But this hemp tea recipe will help you relax and maybe help you sleep better. To make this, you need to cut up two cloves of garlic, one stalk of celery, eight peppercorns, and four slices of fresh ginger into small pieces. Put all the ingredients in a large jar with a half cup of fresh mint leaves and one cup of hot water. Cover the jar tightly and let it steep overnight so that the flavors can combine well before drinking it in the morning. This will give you a refreshing taste to start the day and help you relax for a night of better sleep.
Hemp Tea with Blackberry
To make it, put two tablespoons of dried hemp leaves or flowers into two cups of boiling water and let it steep for about 15 minutes. Add one tablespoon of fresh-squeezed lemon juice, one teaspoon of cinnamon, and one tablespoon of honey. Let it steep for another five minutes, and then strain out the plant material using cheesecloth or coffee filter paper if desired. Add in half a cup each of blackberries or raspberries to give it some flavor and sweetness. You can use the blackberries for this tea or substitute them with lemons or oranges for a pleasant refreshing taste that will wake you up in the morning.
