As we come in to 2021, we realised we indulged far too much over Christmas and some of our team, with a lot of others, decided to try Dry January (James isn’t doing it, he’s already TEA – total!) others have decided to go for Veganuary!
Many people ask us about the benefits of tea and how it might be good for them. We always start off by saying there is some research that might suggest certain health benefits but it’s not been proven that drinking wellness teas every day will turn you in to a healthy goddess with luxurious flowing hair and a new zen aura!
Let’s start with green tea. As part of a healthy and balanced diet Green Tea is said to boost metabolic rate and increase fat burning, along with a good exercise routine. Green tea also has the most caffeine content of all the types of tea, so it’s great in the morning for that extra boost. With Green tea you will have a nice, sustained energy boost as the theanine that is also in the tea balances the jittery effects that you might get with other high caffeine drinks. Take a look at our Wellness tea video.
All teas, including herbal teas such as red berries contain antioxidants which is great news for your mind and body. Antioxidants are also found in Spinach, kale, blueberries, beetroot and nuts and seeds.
When you buy high quality herbal tea you are usually buying the pure herb, berry or spice ready to make your drink. For example with Lemon and Ginger tea you should be able to see the dried lemon and pieces of ginger. Making a cup of this, especially if adding honey always makes us feel better if we are feeling a bit under the weather. Breathing in the steam before drinking seems to help clear our airways too.
Our wellness teas always give us a bit of a boost, even if it’s just the feel good factor of the name. Drinking our Motivation Tea makes us feel like we can take on the world! Whether your favourite tea is Green, Peppermint or Camomile, the thing that makes you feel well is the comforting feeling of having your favourite mug in your hands and the beautiful taste of a high quality tea.
