Tea Can Provide Clean Energy & Allow You to Start Your Day Right
Brewing a morning cup of tea is a great way to clear your mind, hydrate your body, and prepare you for the day ahead, making it a great way to increase wellness.
We love starting the day with matcha, a powdered green tea that has been known to have a high antioxidant concentration. Matcha, like our Ceremonial Grade Matcha, is a healthy and delicious alternative to coffee that can provide clean energy without the jitters or any other negative side effects associated with consuming too much coffee. This is because matcha contains high levels of L-theanine which has been known to promote stress relief, so when paired with the naturally occurring caffeine in matcha, it can foster clean and focused energy.
We’ve also found that the process of preparing matcha is a great way to implement a morning routine that may help you start your day off on the right foot. Finally, consuming matcha daily has been known to help promote clear skin, better immunity, and proper digestion, all of which are key components to looking and feeling your best.
For optimal results, we recommend doing your morning tea ritual before looking at your phone or beginning work. Treat this as an important step in your everyday wellness routine whereby you can allow yourself to check in with your body and your mind to feel balanced, refreshed, and ready to take on the day.
Tea Helps Nurture Your Gut
Throughout the day, we encourage you to sip on teas that promote gut health and proper digestion. Gut health is so important to our overall well-being, from promoting glowing skin to boosting immunity to absorbing nutrients from the foods we eat, if your gut is out of balance, your overall health and wellness will be too. We recommend our Wellness Gut Health Tea Bundle, made up of our Soothe Tea and Cleanse Tea to promote the body's natural cleansing process and help restore balance in the digestive system.
Tea May Ease Anxiety
Tea may help calm you down if you’re feeling tired or overwhelmed by life’s daily stressors. Taking a mid-day break to brew a cup of soothing tea can play a huge role in your everyday wellness routine, allowing you to recharge, refocus, and continue onwards. We love a chamomile blend, like our 6:00 PM Tea that includes lavender and roses, as chamomile has been known to promote relaxation.
Tea Helps Your Body Recover Post-Workout
Exercise is a key component to overall health and wellness as it may improve your mood, boost your energy levels, promote circulation, increase your immunity, and can keep you physically fit and able.
That said, to fully reap the benefits of your workouts, it is extremely important to properly fuel your body. Teas like our Bright Eyed blend may help promote muscle recovery, increase blood flow to muscles, and potentially offset inflammation. Adding tea to your post-workout routine can be a great way to enhance your everyday wellness routine.
Drinking Tea Keeps You Hydrated
Water is essential to overall health and wellness. Our bodies are made up of about 60% water, and just about every bodily function depends on it to operate properly. When you’re dehydrated, you don’t feel or look your best, as water is essential for healthy skin, hair, and nails, as well as aiding in digestion, controlling heart rate, and regulating blood pressure.
Drinking tea counts towards your water intake, making it a great addition to your everyday wellness routine. At its core, a cup of tea is 98% water and 2% tea, making it a great way to hit your daily water intake goals. Additionally, tea is packed with antioxidants, making it an incredibly healthy (and delicious) alternative to water. Whether it’s green tea, white tea, black tea, oolong tea, or tisanes, all tea has been known to help keep you hydrated, so pick the blend that you like most and make a daily cup of tea a habit.
Caffeine Free Teas Can Help Ensure a Restful Night of Sleep
Herbal teas have been known to help promote a restful night of sleep. Getting adequate sleep is incredibly important to your overall health as it allows your mind and body to rest and repair. Sleep deficiency has been linked to an increased risk of disease and illness, compromised immunity, dull skin, and mental health problems, so you should never compromise on those 8 hours.
A cup of soothing herbal tea, like our Sleep Tea, may help your mind and body transition into a state of relaxation, which can potentially help you fall asleep faster. We always recommend caffeine-free teas for your evening tea ritual in order to ensure that caffeine will not interfere with your sleep schedule. Additionally, look for blends with other calming ingredients, like chamomile, lavender, and lemon balm, to help nurture a better night’s sleep and an enhanced everyday wellness routine.
