Making tea at home is easy. Put on the kettle with some water, pull down your favorite mug, and pick today's tea. But on the road or out on the trail, making tea can be a bit more difficult. I find that difficulty revolves mostly around getting the water hot. I always seem to ask myself whether bringing a stove, pot and extra water for tea is really worth it on a short trip or when we are not traveling in our van. So I've developed a few tricks to make tea on the trail easy.
Sometimes reaching for a hot cup of tea when you aren't feeling well is soothing. Not only is tea soothing, but a hot cup of tea will help warm you up when you have the chills and help keep you hydrated. Plus, herbal teas contain antioxidants, which help support the immune system and promote healing.
