Her traditional Native American ways were grounded in simplicity and beauty. Every summer she picked enough Navajo Tea from the high meadows of Northeastern Arizona to last through Fall and Winter.

A new favorite!
I had this tea for the first time at Monument Valley in the Navajo Nation. The night I had it at The View restaurant, I enjoyed it along with a sampler platter of traditional Navajo foods. It was so delicious and I had such a feeling of relaxation that evening, as if I had a glass of wine with dinner. (but I had nothing alcoholic that night). I wondered if I was feeling good just because I was enjoying the meal and the culture and scenery of the area….and I was on vacation! I bought a box to bring home with me, so I was very curious to see if I would experience that same feeling when I next consumed it. I tried it again after a rather stressful day and I found the same thing to be true again. I love this tea and will definitely be ordering some more when I run out!
I purchased a box of this tea when we were driving through Navajo country last year, not really knowing what to expect. What a pleasant surprise! The flavor is quite mild, coming as it does from a tisane of greenthread herb. I think of it as a very slightly smoky flavored chamomile type taste. If your stomach is upset or you’re feeling anxious and unsettled, you will notice an almost immediate difference if you drink a cup of this. I stretched out my box as long as I could because I was saving it for when I didn’t feel well, so it was a real delight to find that it is now available through Amazon. I don’t know if there are any real health claims made for this tea, but it wouldn’t surprise me to find that it is discovered to have potent medicinal properties.
