Outside our front door...
little sweetly scented miracles blow in the breeze
each time a lotus blossom opens to the sun.
They leave me breathless and have enticed me
to explore the health benefits of drinking lotus tea.
A combination of green tea and lotus leaves,
it is high in antioxidant compounds. It is known for it's
diuretic, astringent and calming health benefits.
Sounds perfect to me.
Blooming at Chateau Mango this week....
fragrant lotus blossoms.
