CBD and Tea: 12 Tea Inspired Recipes to add CBD to right now!

By: Megan Lyn Farley

Hi, yes, I am talking about tea again, won’t you join me? 

Honestly, coffee gets all the spotlight, but I am her to remind you that tea should not be overlooked. It can give you a gentle caffeine boost when needed, or it can lull you to sleep. It can be served hot, iced, dressed up like a fancy latte or turned into cookies. The herbal benefits alone should be inspiration enough to start incorporating tea into your life, and the versatility it has to offer is an added bonus. 

Obviously here at Kush Queen, we like to find all the ways to add CBD to our day, so here I am. The ways in which to utilize tea, much like CBD are endless, and I found some tasty (and some unconventional) tea-inspired recipes that you should definitely add CBD to.

It is honestly as easy as adding a few droppers of Bare Daily Wellness to the recipe to achieve your desired dosage. Pay attention to serving size and then choose how many milligrams of CBD you would like per serving. Each dropper of our Original Bare CBD Tincture offers just over 16mg’s of CBD, so you can use that to determine how many droppers you will need. 

After much research, thank you Pinterest, I have found 12 unique and enticing Tea-Inspired recipes that I think you should definitely try and definitely add CBD to. I was inspired by our very own CBD Bath Bomb Tea Collection, Obvi, so these recipes will be incorporating Matcha, Earl Grey, and Chai teas. 

MATCHA TEA INSPIRED RECIPES

1.Matcha Popcorn

While green popcorn may seem a little strange, It sounds delicious! I would recommend adding your Bare Daily Wellness drops to the Matcha topping blend. And while this recipe calls for making stovetop popcorn, which if you can, probably tastes way better, but feel free to make the Matcha topping and toss with your favorite microwave popcorn option!

2. Matcha Shortbread Cookies

The green color of these cookies in 100% natural from the Matcha powder! SO fun! These would be great for a Halloween Party, St.Pattys day, or if we are being honest, a basic Tuesday. You will want to add in your CBD tincture with your butter and take it easy. Adding too much oil may alter the consistency of the cookies. I would recommend starting with 2-4 droppers for the recipe to see how they turn out. OR you can replace half the butter with this Cannabutter Recipe

3. Matcha and Orange Smoothie

The citrus addition to this Matcha smoothie makes it bright and refreshing. While fall is just around the corner, the heat is still kicking, and this is a great way to cool down while enjoying a sweet treat and getting in loads of health benefits. You will want to blend all of the ingredients according to the recipe, THEN add in 1-2 droppers of Kush Queens Bare Daily Wellness and pulse for a few more seconds until fully incorporated. Pour it up and enjoy! 

4. Matcha and Chia Seed Smoothie Bowl

When you want all the goodness of a smoothie, but are in a spoon kind of mood, in comes the smoothie bowl. My favorite way to trick my brain into thinking I am eating ice cream. This recipe takes the goodness of Match and combines it with frozen bananas and avocado to bring you an ultra-creamy smoothie bowl experience. Top with Chia seeds for a health boost, and whatever fresh fruits, granola, and nuts you’re vibing with! You can add your CBD oil to this recipe by blending it into the smoothie, or by adding it to Granola if that is one of your chosen toppings. 

CHAI TEA INSPIRED RECIPES

5. Chai Tea Energy Balls

Energy balls offer a foolproof way to add protein to your diet while also satisfying your sweet tooth. You can easily adapt the ingredients to your taste preference, but this Chai tea inspired version seems pretty near perfection. Add 4-6 droppers of Bare Daily Wellness CBD oil into this recipe with the wet ingredients and your energy balls will have 4-6mg of CBD each. 

6. Chai Spiced Oatmeal Cookies

Oatmeal cookies remind me of my childhood. Each bite is packed with nostalgia. Adding in Chai Spices honestly feels like the universe merging my current self with my child self to remind me that we are the still the same person. Too deep for an oatmeal cookie recipe? I don’t think so. I recommend removing ½ tbsp of butter from this recipe and adding ½ tbsp of Kush Queens Bare Tincture

7. Vanilla Chai Oatmeal

When you need a quick and fulfilling breakfast, oatmeal has your back. Protein-packed and unbelievably adaptable. There is an oatmeal option for almost everyone! This oatmeal takes the smooth flavors of vanilla and spices it up with some Chai. It’s a comforting combination to start your day off right. I would recommend trying this CBD Whipped Cream recipe to top your oatmeal! You deserve a dessert for breakfast kind of day! I promise. 

8. Chai Spiced Sweet Potato Pancakes

Pancakes are one of my ultimate comfort foods. Cake, for breakfast, duh! It always felt like I was getting away with something when I would sit down for a pancake breakfast growing up. As an adult, I have continued the tradition, proudly. These pancake stacks are a twist of the classic. Adding Chai Spices and Sweet Potato really switches up the vibe bringing you a pancake with a deeper depth of flavor. Include 2 Droppers of Bare Daily Wellness with the olive oil that already in this recipe. An easy peasy way to add some chill to your morning meal. 

EARL GREY TEA INSPIRED RECIPES

9. Earl Grey Cake with Honey Cream Cheese Frosting

Oh Dear Lord. This cake looks ridiculous! Subtle and decadent at the same time. A perfect flavor pallet you can turn to year around. The addition of the figs really got me. I’m a fig girl for sure! While this may be a more labor-intensive recipe, it will be worth the effort. For this sweet treat, I would add 2-4 droppers of CBD oil into the frosting recipe with the butter. 

10. Earl Grey Granola with Strawberries

Granola, like Earl Grey Tea, is incredibly versatile. It is simple to make, and easy to adapt to all tastes. You can then add it to parfaits, ice cream, smoothie bowls, serve it with milk, or enjoy it dry, fresh out of the oven. Those are just my personal favorite ways to enjoy granola, there are so many tasty uses for granola! Adding CBD to this recipe could not be easier! Just add 3-6 droppers of Bare Tincture to the mixture and toss well before baking. 

11. Early Grey and Blackberry Smoothie

This is an interesting flavor combination that really works. The smooth flavors of Earl Grey balance out the tart sweetness of the Blackberries. If you can get a hold of some fresh blackberries before they go out of season, I would definitely recommend stocking up! Just like with our Matcha Smoothie, you will want to fully blend your smoothie and THEN add your CBD oil and puls for a few more seconds until fully incorporated. 

12. Earl Grey & Honey Milkshake

If you are looking for a splurge-worthy treat to keep you cool, look no further. Loaded with a sweet and smooth flavor, this thick and creamy recipe can easily be adapted for a dairy-free diet by replacing just a few ingredients. Just like with your smoothies, you will want to blend this recipe per the instructions, THEN add your CBD tincture and pulse again for a few more seconds until fully blended. You can also top with this CBD whipped Cream for added herbal benefits and even more decadence.

3 Tea Inspired CBD Bath Bombs to Elevate your Self-Care Routine

I am most definitely a coffee person, but I do love me a good cup of tea. I take mine with milk and honey served up in my favorite Alice in Wonderland mug. It is an experience for me and has become part of my self-care routine. Drinking tea has so many benefits for our health and wellbeing, and every type of tea offers a little something special for you and your body to enjoy. You can sip for energy, sip for stress relief, sip for a good night’s sleep and even for your skin and organ health. That is a lot of benefits! So when I heard that Kush Queen launched a tea-inspired CBD Bath Bombs Collection, my heart fluttered. I can bathe in my tea too? Yes, Please! 

Bathe in the benefits of CBD and Matcha with Kush Queens CBD Bath Bombs

But wait? Do I want to bathe in tea? Does it have any benefits as a topical or is it just for fun? These were some of the questions swimming through my mind, so I, of course, decided to do a little research. What did I learn? Bathing in your tea… highly recommended. Many of the properties in tea leaves also have amazing benefits for your skin and wellness. When paired with the already beneficial ingredients that make up Kush Queen CBD bath bombs – Like High-Quality CBD, Epsom Salt, Baking soda, and essential oils – the benefits are only increased!

So what are these benefits I speak of? I will get to that, but first I want to chat about Dry Brushing. If you have not heard of Dry Brushing, it is definitely something worth looking into. It is the simple act of using a natural fiber brush, preferably with a long handle, to massage the skin without moisture. Starting at your feet you will gently rub your skin clockwise in a circular motion, slowly working your way upward. Not only is this process relaxing, but it is a great way to prepare your body to receive maximum benefits from your bath time. It exfoliates the skin, increases blood flow, stimulates the lymph nodes, detoxes the body, and can even reduce the appearance of cellulite. Your skin will feel fresh and new before you submerge yourself into that tub sized cup of tea. Such a great way to take your self-care to the next level. 

Now back to those beautiful Kush Queen Tea Collection Bath Bomb Benefits!

MATCHA CBD BATH BOMB

Matcha Tea actually contains chlorophyll which is a wonderful detoxifier and has been known to remove harmful toxins from the body as well as fight free radicals. Matcha may also assist in decreasing your body’s sebum production. This can help to treat and prevent body acne and may even add a layer of protection from harmful UV rays.

EARLY GREY CBD BATH BOMB

Earl Grey Tea contains Vitamins B1, B2, E and H, all known for their abilities to keep your skin feeling soft and smooth. You will also find Antioxidants in this tea which will keep your skin healthy and hydrated while fighting those pesky free radicals.

CHAI TEA CBD BATH BOMB

Chai Tea is my favorite tea, and not just because I’m basic! The cinnamon and Clove in your Chai tea (and Bath Bombs) can help to improve blood circulation which will reduce swelling and puffiness and give you a nice glowy complexion. This tea is also ultra-hydrating and may assist in reducing the signs of aging skin!

PRO TIPS: 

  • Pour yourself a cup of tea to enjoy while you soak. Your skin will receive all those amazing benefits from the inside out. (And you can feel really fancy while you do it). 
  • A Spice Girls playlist may also enhance these benefits by filling you up with joy and empowerment vibes. 
  • For those of you who prefer not to soak in the tub surrounded by loose tea, which I personally LOVE, that does not mean you can’t enjoy these Classy AF Bath Bombs! Grab yourself a large organza drawstring bag, place the bath bomb inside it, and add to your tub. You will get all the Bath Bomb goodness, but the bag will hold onto the tea leaves for you. Like a Tea Bag for your tub.
