Excerpt from A Basket of Good Ideas

One of my favorites is Rise and Shine Tea. It has a wonderful aroma and a fantastic taste, plus it is soooo healthy. When I was young, I often heard Dad asking Mom to make him some of that "good tasting tea". She combined ginger, cloves, green tea, and peppermint, using cinnamon sticks to stir. Both of these premixed teas are best brewed in a teapot or percolator rather than just a cup at a time, because it gives the herbs more time to steep. Hot water can be added to the teapot or percolator several times so the tea can be steeped again and again and thereby getting the most out of the herbs.

For more information on making teas, see the Preparing Remedies page. The following books have been our best references on making our own teas over the years:

From Our Reading and/or Experience...

  • This dry herb mixture can be made into a tincture. As a tincture, it would be more effective. However, we prefer it as a tea because of its great flavor.
  • The mixture can also be ground up into powder and encapsulated, as some folks simply prefer capsules.
  • The Rise and Shine Tea can be used to benefit men, women (including before, during or after pregnancy, and nursing), and children.
  • It can be used as often as you would like, and in any way you choose.
  • As is the case with most herbs, this dry mixture should be stored in a dark, dry, and cool place. Refrigeration or freezing is great, but certainly not necessary. Following these suggestions will delay the loss of its highly valued nutritional and medicinal properties.

Love this tea!
by Angie M on Oct 26, 2014

New to your teas and herbs. I bought the beginners herb kit and have been drinking 2 cups of this tea a day since it arrived and 0 cups (instead of 2) of coffee. I am a nursing Mom to a teething 7 month old. Plus add in my other 4 ages 2-16 = very little sleep. I had about 4 hours of interrupted sleep last night and about 1/2 way in to my first morning cup I am completely and totally awake and refreshed. I have been wanting for so long to start working more heavily with herbs and thanks to you guys now I can. I have our arthritis salve warming in the crock pot right now.

one of my favorites!
by Christina on Feb 5, 2014

Hi there :)
just wanted to let you know how THANKFUL I am you came up with this tea/herb mix!!! it tastes soo yummy, esp with a little bit of raw honey, and most of all, I have never felt better at work - yes, even during the afternoon low! I used to always get tired during the afternoon hours - no matter how much I had slept the night before, no matter how much coffee I drank and no matter how good/bad my lunch was. with this tea, no more of that! :) I try to drink it all throughout the day (re-steeping a couple teaspoon-fulls) but even when I forget, I just make a big mug at the onset of tiredness and within a few minutes, I feel back to normal :) combined with the awesome flavor, this has become one of my all time favorites!!!

You say this has a small amount of caffeine in it. Can you be more specific. I've taken myself off of caffeine entirely because of rebound headaches and I don't want to get addicted to it again- EVER. Should I skip this or is there another product that is similar or is the caffeine content REALLY low?

    If you don't want to drink caffeine anymore, I would advise going with another tea. it is a small amount of caffeine compared to other tea's because it's naturally in the herbs.

nursing mom

Just wondering if this would be ok to drink while I'm nursing?

Love your Rise and Shine Tea
by Tamera on Nov 12, 2012

I love your Rise and Shine Tea, and even prefer it over a cup of coffee each morning. I have been an avid coffee drinker for many years. However, your yummy tea is so delicious and good for me, that I prefer it over my morning cup o' joe.
I'd love to buy your herbs in bulk, though, so I can make my own and pass it out to family and friends. I found the recipe for Mama's Red Raspberry Brew on your site - another tea, I love and use to help with PMS - but, I didn't see the recipe for the Rise and Shine Tea. Would you mind sharing the recipe, so I can order the herbs in bulk?
Thanks so much for your site and information. I've been an avid fan and user of your remedies for over 5 years now.

Tasty and with benefits!
by Abigail Lassiter on Jun 21, 2012

I cannot sing Rise and Shine Tea's praises enough! Absolutely delicious! I enjoy drinking a generous cup every morning upon rising.
Two benefits I wasn't expecting is that since regularly drinking Rise and Shine I don't have that 2 o'clock "crash" in the afternoons. I am alert all day long.
Also, in the past I have had trouble keeping my blood sugar stabilized and Rise and Shine has decreased my sugar swings dramatically!
Thank you for a wonderful product! Rise and Shine will be included in every one of my future orders.

My boys love it
by Jennifer on Jan 28, 2011

We love your Rise and Shine tea—all of the boys in my house drink it daily! They like it without honey even more than with it because of its naturally sweet taste!

Makes a good Christmas present!
by Nicole on Oct 14, 2010

This has replaced my morning coffee. I love this served hot with a bit of honey and milk. As a matter of fact, I have a beautiful cup of it beside me now. This will make for lovely christmas presents this year.

Tastes Great!
by Valerie B. on Aug 24, 2009

Good evening. I have been drinking your Rise and Shine Tea almost every day since I received it. It's wonderful! I have NEVER had a tea that I liked that much. I've cut down on coffee, and have sent several bags to friends and family so they can try it and order their own.

I live on a Greek island and there is such an abundance of herbs growing wild! However,I don't really know what they all do and how to best use them. Thanks for this fantastic site which I discovered through NGJ! I would like to give all mamas a healthy alternative to baby lotion.

Heat 2 cups of good quality olive oil with a handful of chamomile flowers (dried) and pour in a jar and allow to cool. Store in glass for future use. I use it on the children after their bath by massaging and they warm up in seconds! It also seems to help in healing cuts and abrasions.

Did you know that chamomile actually means apple of the ground in Greek (because of its apple-like smell)?

Thanks once again! ~Arlene
