Coffee tends to rule hot beverage world on this side of the pond, but we think it’s high time for tea to get the recognition it deserves. Whether you’re looking for a substitute for your morning beverage or simply craving a warm mid-day drink, we can’t think of anything better than tea.
Here are our 6 reasons to love hot tea:
1. Helps hydration
Did you know that tea counts toward your daily fluid intake? If you find yourself struggling to meet your hydration goals, try subbing a cup or two of water for tea. You may find that the subtle flavor is enough to entice you to drink more.
2. Low/No calories
Want a little flavor without adding sugars or calories to your diet? Tea is practically calorie-free (unless you add something to it). Green tea may even help with weight loss- it’s a great natural metabolism booster.* Also, if you’re looking for a tea to support weight loss, check out our Herbal Thin Tea. It contains herbs to help support both cleansing and thermogenic activity within the body helping to promote the elimination and storage of excess calories.*
There’s nothing like a warm beverage to help chase away a chill. Drinking a warm beverage can be a good way to warm up quickly. Wrapping your cold fingers around the outside of a warm mug is one of life’s simple pleasures.
4. Low caffeine
Move over coffee- when it comes to a mid-day cuppa, we’re reaching for tea instead. Many teas are either decaf or have low amounts of caffeine, meaning fewer disruptions to our beauty sleep. If a caffeine boost is what you’re after, you can find it in black, green, oolong, and white teas (although the amounts of caffeine vary from tea to tea).
There’s something undeniably soothing about a warm beverage, and tea is especially comforting. Taking a tea break can serve as a mini time-out when you’re feeling stressed or flustered. Sitting down for a few minutes to sip some tea from your favorite mug might be just the mood booster you’re craving.
There are so many types of tea available, it’s impossible to get bored! From flavors to functions, there is a type of tea on the market to meet just about any need and preference.
